MeanGene Posted January 31, 2022 Share Posted January 31, 2022 Straight from Rob's amazing artwork. Doing my best to recreate his set of sketches into a real life helmet. This is my second time sculpting the helmet. First attempt failed when the clay dried out and cracked. About 10 years later I am taking another stab at it. Facts Monster clay medium Sculpted over a plaster bandaged foam block. Will be molded in silicone to make Resin copies. No idea what the paintwork will look like yet. Overall the goal was to blend a Japanese Oni mask with a Predator helmet. The challenging part has been to translate what a flat sketch is to a 3D object. The goal is to stay true to the original design. The antenna/horns will stay. The right side of the mask took approx 3 weeks of chipping away at it to develop the final look. I took some liberties that made sense. Adding Oni mask, samurai helmet elements into this. 7 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
