WIP Critique Tyrion Lannister, Hand of the Queen, Nuts Planet conversion

    Hi guys,

    I’d like to show you first pics of my latest project, a bust conversion of Nuts Planet’s Tyrion Lannister from Game of Thrones, played by Peter Dinklage.

    For those of you who know the TV series, you will appreciate that Tyrion suffers a serious facial wound during battle and subsequently grows a beard. The original bust depicts Tyrion during his very brief reign as Hand of the King to his nephew Joffrey. My bust will depict Tyrion in series 6 when he becomes Hand to Queen Danaerys Targaryen in Mereen.

    If you don’t watch the show most of what I just said will make no sense at all...so here are a few pics to illustrate the difference between the original bust and what Im attempting through conversion.

    I decided to convert the bust after I started base coating which is why there is paint on the face.


    Hope you like it.

    20 minutes of pushing Super Sculpey around to create the beard, and then 20 minutes in the oven to harden and set.

    I know nothing at all about "Game of Thrones" other the fact that I like the way the characters look. That being said ,I like the direction you're going Tony but if you're using sculpting butter, I hope you make his hair a little wilder so he doesn't look like Peter Noone of Herman's Hermits with a beard and scar.:)

    Thanks Keith,

    I’ve done a bit more on Tyrion’s face. Not entirely satisfied yet but making progress.

    Looks great! In the books his nose is actually cut off. Try that!

    Hi Keith, thanks for your continued encouragement mate. I really appreciate it.

    Hi Matt, thanks for your comments. Thankfully this is Tyrion from the TV show, not the books, so the nose stays.

    Excellent work from you as always Tony....and not being a "Game of Thrones" fan. This bust would not push me to give my best effort. If you know what I mean.
