Before subscribing to the stan winston course i thought it'd be cool to see what i could make, to have a milestone to compare improvements with.
So i decided to sculpt Elliot, or Rami Malek, from MrRobot, trying to portray a particular facial expression too.
the reference image is https://i.ytimg.com/vi/6bicZWLGV2g/maxresdefault.jpg
what do you think?
I made two dots for the eyes since the position in my opinion is critical to render the expression.
Here are some more pics http://imgur.com/a/tThSi
, sides, back and a front one with lights similar to the reference pic.
Before ending the post i'd love to have some advice about painting, though i don't know if it's correct to ask them under the sculpting section.
I use acrylic paints, and i don't really know how to describe, but sometimes the paint feels too plain, colours are not rich and sometimes lumps and brush marks are too evident.
Do you have any tip to make the colour more smooth,more lifelike, similar to the ones top artists manage to?
Thanks for your time reading and see you soon!
