Re: Finished begins closet scene


Resculpt?

God... that stuff looks really amazing as it stands!

But I can truly understand if you personally have worked so closely on something, you might see things that you do not like or think can be improved which would never catch the eye of the casual slack jawed observer.

So do the old molds for those "Mark One" pieces need a home? How about any of the castings? :pray

Hee hee. "Get her." That was your whole plan. I like it; it was scientific.

Re: Finished begins closet scene


Ya, almost all of the costume except the legs, and boots I am re-doing.
 
  Thing is, I planned it would be this way way back when I started.
  Making a suit that fits your body only gives a validity to sculpting it in the first place. i.e. While anyone can fit into a skin, foam latex insures that while externally you will look like the movie, internally, your own phyisical build will not alter that in any way, because you have a core(your body), and the neg.
  One thing I have come to realize over the years is that in terms of sculpting a replica, is that you will never get something with an organic set of complex shapes to be 100% exact. But, you want to address all the visual landmarks. These include areas that you might not think as important, but which in fact are such as crotch, armpits, traps, etc. As time goes on, you become more in tune to the piece and you become hyper-aware. Most all my other suits were done in anywhere from 1, to 4 passes. Sometimes I will get lucky and hit it the first time. Most of the time not. Form is the most important thing above anything else bar none. Due to insuffient information, it takes time to "understand" what the form of a piece is all about.
  Even this:

 is just a run-through.
I also have made material for the undersuit that matches the foam latex exactly, whereas in this shot you can see it does not.
 We are definatly not in this to slap together a suit for the annual Halloween party, though nothing wrong with that.
 So, after the exhaustive effort into visual exactness is complete, then comes the functional part. That's actually the part that I'm really looking forward to, because I get to goto places I haven't been to yet.

Re: Finished begins closet scene


the spiderman mannequin is a Mike Hill sculpt
I think bobby doesnt have it anymore, think he parted with the entire thing not to long ago

was cool though the head was alittle big
anyone who has one is super lucky though
I think there were 4 or 6 of them total...
have seen more then one around





cool, looks like the suit is comming along....
have you redone the gloves yet.....saw the first ones you did on the site and they are close but now that new detailed pics are out you can see the differences....



SO WHEN ARE YOU GOING TO PUT THE SUIT ON??????

Re: Finished begins closet scene


Actually, as soon as my sewing machine is done being fixed, I will finish up new gloves, and some other stuff and jump into the suit above. But again, this torso cowl, and belt is being all re-done, which leads into the question Tsuyosa asked.
  Giving advice on sculpting on a chat board is tough. Sculpting is not an armchair quarter back kind of thing. Looks like you've addressed all the visual aspects, but you've got a ways to go to get to a proff. level. i.e. you're not quite ready to get hired in at capetown/shepperton studios, U.K. yet. For everyone sculpting is a bit of a struggle. Copying stuff is the worst. You're trying to re-create what someone else has done based upon available information, and you're perception of that information, which is tough. One thing I can tell is never take any sculpture, as a first and last project, take it in stride and be prepared to do X no. of versions. I still do this. They actually do X no. of versions in most movie shops so the producers or directors can have several ideas to choose from. so actually having say several heads to sculpt on, and having two or 3 sculptures going at the same time is not a bad idea. Keep working and remember it's always a work in progress. always take clear shots if you can, and study you're own photos, this way you see your piece as other will see it.
