Head sculpture by EvanCampbell Head sculpture by EvanCampbell
This is a Roma Plastilina clay sculpture. The head will be molded and eventually turned into a latex mask. It will be painted and have hair glued onto it, as well as realistic dental acrylic teeth added. The raised skin texture (moles and goose pimples) on the sculpture were made by diluting a bit of clay with rubbing alcohol and creating a slush like mix. You can then dip a thin stick into the mixture an tap the little beads of liquid clay onto the surface. Once dried it takes on a very natural look.

I also do sculpture for the film industry.

I have no idea how you made him look so sweaty but in either way, it looks really cool and it's what caught my eye first.

He may be no one in particular, but he resembles Tor Johnson a lot. The skin textures are incredible!

Thanks...I can see that.

I wanted to make the texture as gross as possible.

Would it be wrong to assume that he smells like cheese?....haha
You've got some great subtle nuances happening here, and
the fact I can imagine his lactose-induced odour is attributed
to your talent of breathing life into the inanimate...

...now only if you can get his image onto the box of some French fragances..
Trés Fromage I suppose.....haha
Always awesome work, Evan...
take care...drive safely

Thanks! I actually am going to make better ones for the final mask...the same way dentists make false dentures.

Damn that sounds like fun. Does that involve taking a mold of someone else's teeth then? lol. I look forward to seeing it.

EvanCampbell Featured By Owner Mar 8, 2009
You could do that...but they would be to small for this sized sculpture since this is larger then a human head. I will sculpt the new teeth but use the same materials that dentists make dentures out of. It has been fun but I have no idea when I might get to finish being my limited time factor.

I love this guy's attitude, like he's enjoying an inside joke that only he knows as he's lowering you into a vat of acid or something.
You can almost hear his deep, wet nasty laugh through those teeth.
This is just full of life and stirs the imagination, Evan - great work!

I see that your style of detailing the skin is mostly with small lines im "trying to create a pore type look on my new Joker sculpt and it is'nt easy i made a mould of an orange then made a hard rubber cast that did alittle but its too hard then i made a latex one too soft then i glued a bb pellet to the end of a paintbrush its oki but not brilliant.

Any tips?

Keep up the amazing work i LOVE seeing your new art. :)

my detail style changes a lot of the time...what we use many times is plastic sandwich bag material and a good old pen. Orange peel stamp is the old tried and true way...but like you said if it is not the right firmness, it's messy.
