So though this is the same makeup project from Sculpt update, the sculpt is entirely new! I very much disliked my first attempt, the forms were very unnatural, so I floated it off, did another application of alcote and started all over again. I am much happier with the forms this time around, though there is much to approve upon.
This is the first time doing this large of a multi piece makeup all by myself. I have done fewer piece projects of my own in the past or helped with larger makeup's in the shops, but this is a pretty big task all on your own. It takes many hours, much more than you'd ever think! I have been and still am learning so much from this project, I really look forward to future makeup projects like this as I know exactly how I will go about many things from now on.
So far I have done a rough sculpt, floated it off, made 1630 snaps, remounted the pieces and am now finishing up with final forms and details of the seperate sculpts. I have more or less finished the chin, nose/upper lip and neck. I still have both ears (one's just about done), both cheeks, forehead and back of head to finish.
I hope to get the sculpts finished this week and start the molding next, but we will see! I never know when I have to drop this to do actual paid work instead. I will update with the sculpt pics when all are finished. For now here are some bits of what I've been through so far.
PS: Looking at these pics doesn't really give you a sense of the hours put in so far, but it's many!!!!!!!!!!!!!
