    Hello,
    I'm planning a collection of 1/6 busts about TV and movie characters from 60's and 70's.
    I don't know how many I can sculpt but I'll try to make all as possible...

    This is the first.
    Peter Falk as Leutenant Columbo.
    Hope you like it

    This is the head.

    Excellent Alex, I can't wait to see more!

    1/6th scale is just fine. I have done many heads in that size for commercial purposes. But, truth be told, I am better with the little stuff!

    How about rockers like Jimmy Hendrix, Jim Morrison or Janis Joplin?

    Keep up the good work!

    Thanks Mike, you have not to tell me that,,, I know your work!!
    About size bust, I have made some attempts in several scales,,, I think, 1/10, 1/9 is an exelent scale for include some supplies in the bust, like helmets, armature, clothes, etc...
    But in this case, I want to concentrate me on the likeness and expression mainly, and the rest of the bust will be complementary only.
    Also, in 1 / 6 scale can test some things in sculpture like texture of the skin.

    regards,

    Alex.

    Suggestions for Alex Lopez

    Alex, I would really like to see you do Sgt Saunders bust? I know you had worked on one in the past. Have you completed it or thought of making it available for sale?

    Any thoughts to doing Zorro or Lone Ranger? I would love to paint one of those.

    Appreciate your work and efforts.

    All the Best, Terry Martin and The AMFS Gang

    Nice likeness! The best thing about painting Peter Faulk would be the fact that if your eyes don't line up, it doesn't matter!!!!!!! LOL!
