i saw this thread and first thing that came to my mind was "I'm a tauntaun" from robot chicken...sorry... But the sculpt looks amazing
Very cool, you did a great job on this.
So? Where can I sign to get one?
That's a beautiful piece of art!
Looks Fantastic Russ Great Work as allways
I'm working on a bust that I will be molding and I plan to put a seam up the back, similar to what you have done. I have never done this with a large mold before though, and I wonder about the possibility of it tearing all the way around when I try to de-mold. Is this a potential problem with your mold? Does it naturally resist that kind of tearing, or is there a fail safe to prevent it?
Molds complete, first parts pulled! The parts come out near perfect, with little to no clean up. Only minor seam line sanding required on the horns. Head is fiberglass with shell-shock as the print coat, horns are smooth cast-roto. I'll be doing a run so any takers please PM me. Kit is head and horns only for now. Price $350 plus shipping. I may offer the neck and mounting system later as well as completely finished out piece. Thanks for all the comments!

You know, as absurd as it may seem - I never realized the Taun Taun had two sets of nostrils
The is simply beautiful! Outstanding work as always Russ! :thumbup
I think I will need one of those, it's just amazing work!
That is an amazing piece of work. I'm interested to see it after you put fur on it.
Hope you manage to sell a few to finance the mold-making process.
What can I say... I'm drooling! You've got an amazing talent.
I have to echo what everyone else said...simply amazing!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I can't wait to see what one looks like all finnished up & hanging on a wall!!!!!!!
amazing work i can't wait to see it all finished, i would love to have the room to do work like this dam flats just to small.
I've been watching this thread, like many others. And I have to say that is one amazing Tauntaun head you've got there! The amount of detail just leave me spechless.
And yes I can't wait to see it with fur also
.... wish I could afford one for my self
just to add to the motivation and others have said, my wife who is quite happy with my sw collections, vader and tk suits in the loungeroom on mannikins now as i cant troop walked past and looked said isnt that the head of the smelly things on the ice planet that harrison ford was riding? Keep in mind shes more into xfiles and stargate, but she remembered and knew exactly what it was.
Great work on that skin texture dude, Im continually amazed at the level of quality work being done here.
No more lurking for me! Its motivating me!
WOW! That's amazing. I wish I had that kind of sculpting talent.
When will we see the first totally painted and fixed completed head? I can't wait to see it!
WOW!!!! What does a Tauntaun eat? That one looks so real you need to feed it.
