    so I brought some Bossk patches and thought I really should add to them...
    And this is a perfect excuse to pull out my sculpting tools and start a new project.... after all you can never have too many project
    I started firstly by finding as many images as I could gather from the web.... not as much out there as I would like, which is very frustrating and I don’t own one of those awesome collectible figures. So I’ll just have to work with what images I have so far ( I imagine by the time I’m done, I’ll have a good database of Bossk images)
    I have some WED clay sitting around, so have decided to use that and build it up on a sculpting bust I made a few months back.
    I have blocked out he basics so far, just a quick two hours from setup to wrapping in cling film to protect it and stop it from dry too much.

    Still plenty of work to get the shape right, thicken neck, fix up the snout, and maybe find better eye replacements and redo the eye area.

    Will post more progress soon.

    Starting to get somewhere a bit closer to the right shapes of Bossk..

    Just a little work around the eyes and snout...

    I haven’t made my mind up on that yet, I may sculpt,mould and cast the feet and hands also. ( as there can never be too many available kits out there)
    I will be making masks from the sculpt, and may do a display piece, yet to decide how far this will travel...

    will you be making some for sale ? would love to buy a kit from you. a display piece would really make a cool thing to talk about with people that come over and see it, i know i love to talk about my boba when everyone ask questions about it :D
     
  13. TheZeroEffect

    Yes I will be, the plan is to cast in latex and possibly may do one or two in silicone depending on how I like the latex ones. Silicone is more forgiving and last longer than latex and has a larger movement range, something illlook more at when I get to the mouth mechanism....

    One with the flash on...

    Hmmm blurry photos are not good...
    So another progress update should clear that up...
    It’s coming along nicely, I’m getting into the flow of his scales.
    I moved the horns and fixed the cheek ridges as I put them a little too far back and I’ve started to block out the details on the left side ( Bossks right)

    The head ridge is a bit too tall at the moment, I’ll fixed that next time..
