    I/5 bust scratch built with miliput,duro & magi sculpt.
    This how far I've got!...Hair sculpted in duro (which has taken ages!) I think I need to make the lips a bit more fuller & try to get rid of the slightly pinched look in the face.



    All comments very welcome

    Cheers

    James she looks great. The hair really look amazing. I m no sculptor but i think that the head looks just a bit big compared to the rest of the body, especially in the first two photos.

    Jim, excellent work on the hair, can see why it took so long. Your own suggestion to make her lips fuller and to get rid of the pinched look to the face I think will help, so here's a couple of pics of the actress Zoe Saldana who played the part , it might help seeing her without the make-up.
    Will follow.

    Cheers Ken

    Good work James !! Yes it's a difficult sculpt as it has to be precise, good effort though I'm sure you'll get it at the level you want to achieve with this effort so far.:D

    Thanks for the comments guys ...much appreciated, and thanks Ken for the photos, I've filled the face and lips out more which improved her face much more (in my opinion) will post photos later.

    She looks totally different just with a squirt of primer, very nice.
    Chippy's base set her off a treat.
