Looking good so far Kym.

I would suggest making the muzzle deeper, don't forget that you have to fit a whole set of teeth between your own mouth and the mask lips. I made this mistake too and was put back on track by Matt!

Also I would make the lips a bit more defined!

I agree... your mouth should be deeper. This will correct the angle and length of the bridge of your nose, and also allow for your mouth to be more... full/ round... not so straight across if you catch my meaning. Dont be afraid to add a bit to the nose as well. Should be like a puppy dog.. Smile


Chewbacca... if that is what you are going for has many looks, and things on his face change from movie to movie, so there is some play depending on which way you decide to go. Just remember the hair is going to add some depth and thickness... things like the bridge of your nose you won't be able to make smaller, but you can sculpt the hair to make look a bit bigger... something to think about.













Looks like your on to the right track though!

Great start!

Bob

I did some touching up on the mouth area. Defining lips more and gave a more muzzle look to the sculpt. I also played around with the nose a bit more. Think it looks much better.

Almost looks like he is smilling. I would avoid expresions when it comes to his mouth.

I think it looks just fine actually, I really don't think the slight upward arc of the lips at the corners is going to matter once the mask has all the hair on it.
Great job!

I think the first head sculpt looked better. But I know this is super hard,so what do I know.

I had to adjust the muzzle on the first sculpt as it was not going to be deep enough. Then I just kinda touched up the mouth(gave lips a bit more definition) rounded out the nose a bit more and deepened the mouth opening. I think I'm ready to grease this puppy up for molding.

I would at least straighten out the mouth before u mould it!

The hair will not hide any faults particularly int the mouth area!

I toned down the mouth a bit giving him less of a giddy grin. Im also going to re- round out the tip of the nose a bit more.

Yeah, after the nose then I think your on track for a great cast. What kind of clay did you use by the way?.. almost looks like a water base clay... very moist!

Either way, good job!

I used Kleen klay medium. I use that stuff for all my projects.
