Today I took a small break after some crazy deadlines, tomorrow I am back on the saddle , but today I worked a on this.... I honestly almost gave up last year... Chris Reeve is just too hard to capture.... but today I felt the urge to work on him.... once I get a break I will finish this guy.... his hair is just a mock up....
I still see a lot of problems, but sometimes it is better to let go for a while when it comes to portraits.
I am sure I will look at it next week and go " what was I thinking"..... it happens all the time...
This is a personal project, and I really want it too look as close to Mr. Reeve as possible, plus this is more of a static expression study, once I feel comfortable with the likeness both sculpted and painted ( I may have to keep going back to tweaking even after casting and painting). Then I will start making different expressions, angry ( scene where Otis want to take his cape) , determined ( scene where he walks out of revolving door/flying after missiles) , and smiling ( end credits)
I will make two bodies, museum, and flying with different sets of arms ( forward/ by his thighs) waving goodbye etc.
I would also like to make a bust, and an action figure ala Hot Toys....and finally him battling a more Hollywod FX-esque Doomsday... then I can die in piece :P in all honesty at least it will be a resin statue ( Flying)
This is 1/6th BTW.
Thank you for looking,
