Smile Guybrush Threepwood Bust

Hi all,

Sven

I was just pushing some clay around until it looked good enough

Well, go and get yourself some super sculpey or an oilbased clay like chavant or roma plastilina at your local artstore and start sculpting

The shape on that is amazingly realistic and smooth.

You must be really good at sculpting

Hi,

thanks, but that's my first sculpture and there is so much more room for improvements. But for my first sculpture I think it's okay.
It takes some time to handle all the different sculpting tools and materials. Next one will be Elaine. I will post some snapshots of the different stages :-)

Again, thanks for your comment.

Whoa geese that is the best sculpture I have ever seen ! You are really skilled! On the scale of 1-10 you get 11!

Who else thinks the EMI guybrush should've looked like that. It's really good. If you make loadsa characters, try and get it posted (and hosted) on the scumm bar website for all to see. It really is good.

MOST EXCELLENT DUDE!

The smoothness of it is definately a plus.
How'd you accomplish that?

Great bust. The way it is now reminds me of the kind produced at Disney Studios for when they are doing character animations.

Well keep up the good work

There's one thing missing....
And this is something someone may think is important or not but it's reallly something minor.


The earing. Course if you ended up painting it you could add that in, but actually I think you oughto keep not painted.

Again one of the best things on here so good job.

I think Guybrush looks perfect in MI4 because his head shape is more like MI1's so it suites him more.

Guybrush looks anything but perfect in MI4. Despite not looking anything like any of the previous guybrushes (okay, so maybe in head shape) but he just looks way too goofy and that annoying smile on his face from beginning to end was too much.

Of course this is just my opinion.

Hell, guybrush changed so radically over the first three games, that I hardly cared too much about how he looked in the fourth, as long as he simply looked good. Which he did.

But about the sculpture... AMAZING!!! Very smooth and nice. I cannever sculpt like that. He doesn't perfectly match, (maybe I'm nuts but he kind of looks like Woody Alan) but your technique is great. TWO THUMBS UP!

Yep, you are totally right. I have removed the earing to change the ear. I'm currently giving this bust some final touches and attaching the earing now. Thanks for the hint! :-)

Hey all,

I thought I keep you updated on my little guybrush bust.
I have attached the earing, thanks 'pirate boy' :-)




For larger versions check out: http://www.gamecharacters.de

@Joshi: This is oilbased clay that can't be baked. So the material is somewhat flexible and I don't think it is clever to paint it.

Next step would be to make copies of this bust in resin that could be painted. But as I said before, this is my first sculpture and I'm not that familiar with moulding and casting.

Thanks a lot for your feedback folks, it is very appreciacted!

Thanks for the feedback.
Before I start another sculpture i need to make a mold from the figure and cast it in plaster or resin to paint it. Next figure will be Fry from Futurama I think

Will post more pics later.

anyways, your site is down, and I was wondering if you have any updates to show. I'd like to see the next stages of that bernard for Manaic Zombies to show off.
