i didn't like the way the first face attached to the head, it was to wobbly and i thought it would be to wobbly even with magnets holding it in place. i basically started again, without remaking the head and core. i found it much easier this time as the back of the head and core were already hard and set in a permanent position, this made sculpting the mask much easier. i first sculpted the two halfs so they sat very snug to the core.
then, as seen below, i added a rim around the mask which is sculpted to the mask and meets the edges of the head/core.
i then did as i did before, sculpted onto the new masks.
you can see how the rim will actually become apart of the face and mask.
once both halfs were sculpted i carved out the teeth, i made them sit a bit higher up the face compared to the last one i made.
I'm really happy with this new head it locks on and they way its been sculpted allows it to sit only in one place, so no fiddling. i put it on the armature to see how it looks and i personally think it looks awesome. at the moment the head is really heavy but i hope once its cast in resin it will be much lighter.
next step is to cast it in resin then sculpt the mouth shapes, very exciting, I'm on a real buzz at the moment.
