I am not very good at sculpted doll heads. I am not super awful terrible at it but I am not super by a long shot. Occasionally though a different face is fun. And in some cases a different face is necessary. So I try. The first head I ever sculpted was this guy. Which of course prompted the first head in the oven photo.
This guy was next. He was in January of 2012. And believe it or not he started out as a woman. And then he didn't really look like a woman so I started painting him into a man. Especially since his head got singed in the oven. For a bit he looked like a very light skinned African-American man. Then he started to look like a Native American man. After I put on the mustache he looked more Mexican to me. And a little frog-eyed though it doesn't show too much in this photo. Well, I guess it's not too bad for a second try.
So after awhile I thought I would give sculpting a try again and in September of 2012 I came up with this guy. I think he actually came out pretty well.
though the next guy, also September of 2012...is iffy. I think he looks OK but I am not loving this one. *sigh*
Next we have another installment of head in the oven. This guy (or his head) is pretty popular on Facebook right now. I got the foil tent tip in a tutorial about sculpting miniature food and it keeps the heads from burning. Which is good because apparently people find it strange when I say I am cooking heads in the oven. I might get more grief if I was burning them...
So here he is all painted up. This guy is for a contest prize for MEPSA. Harrison Ford was my model but I think he looks more like Brent Spiner. Oh well, at least he looks human and was meant to be a man. Maybe one of these days I will become good at sculpting :)
