colin i ain't gonna blow sunshine up your ass like looks great or superb kinda post i will give you 100% honesty(yes i know how to do that)
I can't really make out freddy in those shots, maybe the sculpt is to early in it's stages. i am no means a bastard of 1000 maniacs expert, but i just don't see it .....yet.

don't sleep.... just keep workin on it till freddy comes to life.

That's why I put it here- I want 100% honesty. My family and friends will always say it looks good, so I stopped asking them.

Thanks Andrew, I'll work on it a ton tomorrow.

I said that to a few people in chat last night...

It looked good from the sides, but the front looked like crap.

Once I get Andrew's clay I'll spend a lot of time getting the likeness right.

Colin...

I think you are getting there with this.
One thing I suggest you do is go on the net and find as many pictures of Robert Englund.. no makeup. Then sculpt that first. In order for it to really look like Freddy you need to sculpt his likeness, then go from there with the scars.

One other thing that concerns me.. are you sure that styrofoam head is life size? Because as you know latex will shrink when you run it in the mold. The head needs to be lifesize or even a little bigger would be better.

Keep going Colin. All of your efforts are going in the right direction. Keep working the form and shapes first and this will be a stand out Freddy sculpt. Patience and discipline are going to be the key, when the shapes are all proportioned right, adding the burns and charring will be your reward and will also be easier to do since you wont be fighting poor proportions to fit the scars in. I have total faith in you and have been tremendously proud of seeing how much your skills have improved in this last year!

Yeah, I imagine it would be much easier to get the scars and burns in the right place, if the head is actually the right shape.

Thank you very much!!! You have been an invaluable guide throughout this sculpt, I appreciate you taking me under your wing and really hammering the advice and tips in and showing me where to go.

It's scary thinking about what this sculpt would look like a year ago.

Another two hours or so, it's starting to look like Robert! Something about the face stilll irks me though. I'll tackle it tomorrow.

Another hour late last night. I bumped his chin out, widened the mouth, tapered the nose, made the nostrils smaller, lowerd the eyebrows, slanted them, widened the eye sockets, made the ears bigger, and covered the back of the head with clay.

Yes, it's purple.

I'm starting to get it. Maybe by the end of today I will be done with the likeness part... but ya never know.

I know its been a lot of hard work...but go back and look at your first posts...and now look at the sculpt...you can see massive improvement and a much greater likeness to Freddy. Keep it it Colin, its paying off.

I can see right away that youve broken thru and begun to have the proportions and look of Robert Englund there.

Colin bravo, I really think you've capture Robert Englund there. You've got the basic forms down now refine it and take your pics of your sculpt and compare them with the reference material you should have around your sculpt when you work. Just need to tweak it a little around the eys I think mate. I love WIP stuff like this.

Mav, I'm sure I would have caught this before I molded it, but after you mentioned the eyes, I realized that the eyeline was about an inch higher than it should have been! I lowered them and made the "puffs" under the eyes and lo and behold, Robert Englund!

None of the previous stages in the sculpt really excited me, but seeing this stage really got me going. It looks like him!!!

The pictures don't quite do it justice, sitting here beside me he looks like Englund!!!
