That's my favourite part of the movies the creature fx are always top notch, love wolf to, I started a sculpt of him a few years ago, never finished it sadly,

Thats so awesome man, Sideshow has a life size bust of him on display at SDCC, but its around 2 grand, very tempting, I think it says a lot about a person if they have a life size snarling predator head in their home rofl

I like yours in the way that it looks like a design piece or something from part way through the process at a creature shop for the film. I've got a crew mug from that film, it was being shot in Vancouver around the time I was in school there. On the crew mug it just says "AVP2"

If you did decide to complete it down the road, is there any issues with the materials drying up etc? It looks amazing.

Cheers mate, I've seen the sideshow version, very nice piece, your crew mug sounds good, this one I did was around halfway done and I went on holiday came back and it had fallen over on the face smooshing the sculpture, bugger!
This clay was WED clay the same stuff the Disney people use, I use it a lot, you have to cover it when not working as its water based clay and will dry out, but its great stuff

Haven't posted my work in a while,. this is based on the movie Constantine, the half head demon, nearly done just got to make a base for it, heres the bust starting from reference pic, through sculpture to finished bust

rough sculpture

a bit more work

final sculpture ready for moulding
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

from the sculpture I made a two part plaster mould, then I popped it apart, cleaned out the clay and the mould was ready for rubber

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

heres the mould skinned with rubber, after this I clamp the two halves together and fill it with a two part soft expanding foam, I then pop the mould apart and pull the foam head out, trim the seam and get it ready for paint

Cheers mate, heres another one of mine, a kitbash of various things, the alien on a pedestal base was a model kit, everything else I put together, the scale was off, the alien here is huge compared to the marine, but I was just having fun with it
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

The marine started out as a pound land soldier, I scratch built his armour and pulse rifle using milliput, one of my favourite parts of the build was the rifle, working at a small scale for a change was a challenge

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

I went with a brown colour for the alien, the base itself was an old clock that I ripped the guts out of and repurposed as the base, the greeblies and detailing all came from my spares box, the decals were water slide ones, the alien eggs were just old plastic eggs detailed with milliput

Here's a few more projects I've been working on, first up an ATST, done for a friend, a simple weathering job, couldn't get the thing to stand unaided unfortunately, it did have a great sculpt but the engineering was bad

next up a bit of a repaint on a Jason bust, my friend bought it from the states and while he liked it he wanted the shading altering a bit which I did, hope you can tell in the pics, first up how I got it

then after I had added more shading
