WIP Kyle Reese from Terminator 1

    This is my current project again in 1/2 scale. I think the bust is just about done, just need to do some tweaking of the hair. I also made a 1/2 scale shotgun to go with it.

    Ok, can I just give you my bank account number now? It will just be easier that way. And if you do Kristanna Loken from T3, all bets are off. Sanity may leave me, second mortgages will be taken out...

    Really cool subject. Not sure why it hasn't been done before.

    I agree Jason, I'm getting a systems overload too.
    I'm still discussing with Al the first one and he does this to me. Gulp!
    Could we not have waited until Dec like waiting for the 2nd part of the Hobbit franchise.
    Slow down Al and let us catch up.
    Stunning stuff though.
    You've got some talent Al.

    Superb bit of sculpting, the likeness is spot on and I love the gun over the shoulder. Your detail work is out of this world. You have to do copies of these!!!!!!!

    Cheers, Carl! :)
    hahaha, I'd like to think second morgages won't be necessary.
    There have been one or two sort of half body type busts done previously, but nothing that focuses on the face like this one.
    Thanks, Karl :) These busts have actually been done over the last 3 years... yeah I'm that slow... but you just got them all at once :)
    Cheers, Ben, Kyle isn't finished yet though.

    1/2 scale is like a library bust. I would put one of these next to Shakespeare or Disraeli any day. :)

    To be honest, if someone were to do Kristanna Loken....:love:....as a full 75mm figurine the way she appears in this movie....then I'd be breaking down their door trying to give them the loot..!!

    This looks so good you wouldn't have to paint it. You can see the pores on his face! Incredible!(y)(y)
  12. Alaneye Member

    To be accurate, they are just under 1/2 scale, something like 5/12ths.
    Thank you, René
    Wow, a figure at 75mm tall... way beyond my skills :D
    Thanks... detailing in my favorite part :)

    Been putting in a kitchen, but finally had time I knocked up a stand today... the idea sorta being it's the corner of the kitchen table. What do you think? (Kyle has been baked now, which is why he's a bit brown around the edges).

    The eyes make him look like a terminator in disguise! :woot:

    I would do some more work on the bangs and make them less symmetrical and neat (blocky) and more "wispy" and unkempt. Kinda looks like he just took a comb down the middle of his head and combed in the part. The nose might be on the small side as well, perhaps it could use more volume at the tip. Cheers

    Amazing sculptwork.

  19. Alaneye Member

    Kyle is done, there will be no changes. I used literally 100s of images when sculpting and it probably doesn't look exactly like any of them, including the one you showed... you take what you need from each image to try and capture something of the character you are sculpting. But the look I was going for mostly was this:


    The size of the nose depends on the picture you are looking at as the lens distorts depending on the distance and the focal length. His hair goes from a greasy, spidery mess to neatly combed after he took a shower. The choice I made about the hair was a practical one because it has to be moulded and cast. I took my cues from here:


    More wispy bangs can be added later with putty of course.

    It may have already been asked, so forgive me if it has. Are you going to make copies of this?
