You’re scared of room 237, ain’t you?
No, I ain’t.
Mr. Hallorann, what is in room 237?
Nothing. There ain’t nothing in room 237. But you got no business going in there anyway. So stay out. You understand? Stay out!
Finalizing the facial details (particularly the nose). I’ve stopped adding human hair for the time being in order to finish the face. Also, since all the skin will get a coat of clear spray, the hair must not get in the way… I’m not sure as of yet, how the hair reacts to the spray.
The stand is just about done with the first coat of acrylics. A second coat for details and parts I missed will be applied before I lock it down with a coat of Mr. SUPER CLEAR semi-gloss. Also, the lettering will likely get a top coat of solid white since the movie title is done that way.
This stage of the sculpture has been most tedious and challenging. To capture the overall likeness is important, but without the essence of the character, especially in the face–particularly the eyes, the work isn’t done… even if the face has been sanded to a porcelain touch, painted, never hesitate to add or remove clay, or simply start over.
So there’s my excuse for not updating for well over a month…
The figure and base have been primed. Only the face is getting a major makeover.
I resculpted the opening of his pants. Previously, didn’t it look similar to a vagina?
Sorry Bruce! Polishing with fine sandpaper #P1000. Surface will be smoother than a baby’s
butt, however, since I’m going to coat it with a layer of base paint. I won’t need to
polish too much.
Will likely sand down the thickness of his forearms. I know they were big, but not Popeye big! haha
His back muscles need striations which sanding will bring out, and a little tweaking on the folds at the knee.
