Thanks, Sage! I thought about a peg replacement but was unsettled on it because I wanted it swappable with his main body (he's supposed to be like 6'8). I may still do it and clean the head up a little more.
AWC, I am trying to see if I can create an eye for SB and probably do a mini-Mohawk for her. We will see if I have the skill and/or the patience for something like that.
Well, I thought about how to mod the SB head and I wanted to try to actually create the full face. It already had an ear and partial eye. The rest just needed to be smoothed out.
I had an idea to make her a beautiful woman that entered the military, but had part of her face burned from an explosion. The "skin graft" look on her is intentional, but not overly noticeable. I may add scarring to make it more noticeable.
This head was much easier than I thought it'd be since it was done after the Ogre head. I gave her a chick-hawk hair style which is painted purple. I actually sanded the head much smaller because it was such a big noggin' too. She'll be a curse agent. I'm thinking of naming her "Meanstreak." She'll get a full repaint. I'm still toying around making the eye grayed out or scarred over. I'll post her full repaint when finished.
Im really jellous of your eye painting skill. Im not good at that at all.
What has helped me so much is using a fine point needle. It takes a while to do, but it looks so much better (for me at least) than any of my thin brushes. I'm still getting better at it the more I do it.
I was inspired by another customizer, Rabbit, that used plumber's putty to sculpt hair and beards. So I tried it out and it looked fantastic...However, my putty never sets up and stays tacky so I eventually had to take it off. Here is Bolder with hair and a beard. I actually went ahead and bought some green stuff at my local hobby shop. I'll post my results when I'm done. It'll likely look the same. I'll definitely have to do something with the eyebrows though. It makes him look too kind and a little like Santa.
I have never used epoxy putty. This is my first time sculpting or using green stuff. It's consistency was much harder than I expected but I'm ok with the outcome. I'll paint him up and see how it looks.
