Creature Head Bust. (Imaginatio humana)
1/9 Scale model study before final.
I've been working on a creature head sculpture in hopes of getting a commission (Fine art or in Film). I just finished up my 3 day free trail and think I may get a month trail to refine some skills. I watched many tutorials on painting with my trail and noticed mostly every artist had a preference in what brand of Acrylic ink they use to paint realistic flesh with. I would love to hear anyone's preferences from experience with acrylic ink. After painting I'd like to lay hair the same way you would lay a beard on an actor for film but was wondering if anyone knew a long lasting adhesive I could use? I'm using a two part epoxy compound to sculpt with call "Fix-it" Sculpt by AVE'S (stuffs awesome!)
This sculpt is more of a Fine art piece so here is the concept:
When we were young our "imagination" ran wild. Where we went and what we saw all seemed so real. That is until we where told that the things we've been "imagination" are nothing but dreams and fairy tails thus killing our fantasy's. We began to no longer own our reality and our "imagination" begin to fade. This creature represent a killed dream, It's head mounded on a wooden plague as the trophy for its murder and reminds us that what we believe to be real will always be real. I want adults, teens and children to walk into the room and question everything they've be told about reality when viewing this life-like piece. To aspire to "imagine" and play again.
I have given this creature the species name "Imaginatio humana" which is Latin for "(From the) human imagination".
Would love to hear any constructive criticism
