Interesting responses, most certainly…  


Deep Purple?  I could not have ever expected that, Dadrab - but that would be quite cool.    


Haley Atwell?  Indeed, TPB.  Possibly top 20, but not likely among my first five.  Excellent answers, though.  


Olga would have to be on my own list, as well, Stryker...   It would appear that you’ve a fancy for Bond girls.    

By the way, there is (or has been) a Caroline Munroe figure by Phicen and Executive Replicas…

I have that "Caroline Munroe" figure -- it just doesn't look anything like her.

And I honestly didn't even think of the Bond connection until you mentioned it, but I guess it would make sense that the Bond franchise would end up using some of the hottest women walking the Earth. I've been a fan of Michelle Yeoh since the 80s (long before her Bond days), and I think more fondly of Ms. Munroe from her Golden Voyage of Sinbad and Hammer days. Olga -- well, all I can say is Hitman...

I don’t think that your responses are weird, Blackpool.  But are there not decent versions of Knightly and Foster already available?  

And I, too, would appreciate a Harrelson Sculpt.  He’s cool.  And Stiller, LOL, I love that guy.


Sorry, Stryker.  That’s a shame that they didn’t adequately capture Munroe’s likeness to your liking.  It looks to be a good Sculpt, nonetheless, though.  

I certainly think that the essence of resemblance is something more specific than just general features.  Every individual seems to wear a particular expression that is their own, and a successful rendering would ideally possess both characteristic physical features as well as that subtle presence of attitude.  

It’s a tall order, surely - but it is possible - as we’ve seen it accomplished often enough to know so...


Bad Wolf, those are excellent selections, indeed.  

Heart has never been underappreciated - and yet, they still seem somewhat underrated; Ann Wilson’s power is absolutely spellbinding.  

And speaking of spellbinding, Stevie is so enigmatic and captivating…  



But I must ask, are these really your top five choices, or just random picks from off the cuff?

Very true, Heart is still my top favorite rock group (Barracuda) and I seen them twice in concert back in the 1980's, as I recall Nancy Wilson was a
total goddess back in the day. And Stevie Nicks Oh Ya!

These are my top five choices.

Bad Wolf, yes - Barracuda…  Also, Magic Man, Crazy On You...  

And I concur that Ann and Nancy Wilson (and Stevie Nicks, as well) are, indeed, goddesses…  


I yet must say that I’m quite surprised at some of these replies.  I suppose that I’d half expected that many of you would name VS models and contemporary "It" girls; not that such would have been platitudinous, LOL - but I’m impressed by the relative sophistication and originality of your collective answers.  It’s very refreshing, to say the least.

This is a challenging question, isn’t it?  The difficulty is presented by the task of endeavoring to prioritize five top selections, when clearly there are so many.  

We’ll have to consider these lists as being current, if only momentarily so, and certainly subject to change at any time.  

I'm still working on mine...

14 Re: Beautiful... on Wed Jan 09, 2019 2:50 pm

1. Gina Torres
2. Rupert Grint (OK, not beautiful, but adorably dorky tongue )
3. I'll add Stevie Nicks as well.  She doesn't have the structure of a typical beauty and her nose is wide, but the total is very pretty and at least she'd be different!  She'd have to have a 5' tall body with small boobs (why are there no small boobs?) it would look best for SN type clothes, and useful if you wanted to do 1920's
4. Katharine Hepburn, she could be turned into a great evil character, or anything she's ever played.  She can be a beauty or look like Cruella Deville
5. Liza Minnelli, she could use Stevie Nick's body  Wink  

And we need a lot more non-beauty females, like we have for the boys Smile

And Peaches, another vote for Ms. Nicks?  That’s uncanny…  I think that such would ultimately require a Don Henley, though, in all fairness…

Like a Star @ heaven ”You in the moonlight, with your sleepy eyes…” Like a Star @ heaven

Peaches wrote:why are there no small boobs?

Unfortunately, perhaps the only honest answer to your question is that it’s a male-dominated industry and too many designers have Peter Pan Syndrome and / or “mommy” issues.  Many here seem to have long been lobbying for more diversity across the spectrum, with regard for both body type as well as ethnicity.

Honestly, I’m not old enough to remember, but I would've sworn that we had automobiles in the ‘60s…  

…  I’m assuming that you did mean the 1960’s, that is…   Laughing


Indeed, Native Americans are, of course, shamefully underrepresented.  

Yul Brynner is a fantastic idea...  Charlton Heston and Steve McQueen are surprisingly absent...  And perhaps most especially so with consideration for the demographics of hobbyists...

I had a couple Charlton Heston sculpts custom made (one is already painted, and another is in the process); both were done for Planet of the Apes. He’s my favorite actor, and that is my favorite movie. Sideshow did a version of Chuck from Planet of the Apes a while back, and for the time it was okay, but pretty bad by today’s standards.

No worries, Peaches. I myself don’t have the skills to do anything “up to today’s standards” either. As a customizer, I suck. I paid a head sculptor to make the heads, and I paid a head sculpt painter to paint the 1st head; still waiting on one of the best head sculpt painters to paint up the second Chuck head (and a Linda Harrison/Nova sculpt I had commissioned — that one was made bald, so I’ll have to add her hair when the paint work is done). I’ll end up doing their costumes, what there is of them, but those won’t look anywhere near as good as the painted heads (which I had nothing to do with, other than giving advice and suggestions on tweaks during the 3D rendering process).

Other than that, please don’t be nervous, or shy, about posting your work. There are all levels of customizers and bashers out there, and everyone has to start somewhere.

Agreed. Right up there with "Here's looking at you,kid, " and "We don't gotta show you no stinkin' badges."

It's a much deeper film than many understand, certainly much more than I understood the first time I saw it when I was maybe 10 or 11 in the early 70's. Then many years passed, I watched it again as a college educated adult with a degree in history and noticed a lot of subtleties and themes I would not have tuned into as a child.

The author, Pierre Boulle wrote another book that was made into a great movie; The Bridge On The River Kwai.

I agree that the original PotA was a masterpiece in film (the remakes are not), and that its thematic elements ran deeper than the surface of spectacle; however, I also rather feel that some of its ideology was a bit dated.  That does not, in itself, diminish the film in any manner for me, personally - although I can understand how it might for some.

Mr. Heston seems, overall, rather underrated by today’s viewership.  I have seen Soylent Green, The Ten Commandments, among others - and he was certainly an enormous talent.  

I would have expected that there would be a bevy of Heston Head Sculpts available...


Jean Ross, I was just being playful.  I'd understood you the first time, respectfully and sincerely...  And I, too, love horses - and all things equestrian.   Wink

Heston's legacy as an actor is to a degree, and I think unfairly undermined by very open support of the NRA in later years, despite his having marched with Martin Luther King in Washington decades earlier, and crappy disaster films he did in his later career. I did like him as Cardinal Richelieu in the Mustketeer's films, in which he showed he could do much more than the rugged and individualistic tough-guy roles.

MerylAkiba, your responses are outstanding - and with photos, too!  Ovy shall be pleased...

And you’re quite specific about each one, that it certainly seems as though you’ve had your answers on the ready for some time.  You do know what you want, brother.  


Peaches, and Stryker: Would it were that I could wave a wand and grant everyone their wishes…


I have narrowed my own list down to about twenty-five or so, LOL...

Meanwhile, I have been “asked” (which is a euphemism, of course) to create a custom for my lady.  (My own self-custom is in the works, and the Sculpt was not too difficult a choice; fortunately, the Head that works well for me is very available).  

However, while she bears a striking resemblance to a younger Amy Robach (enough so to hear it quite regularly); there is absolutely no hope of finding a Sculpt based on a newscaster.  So if any of you know of one that might be otherwise suitable, please make your suggestions.  

I’ve promised her that I would make this happen…

Here is a good reference shot...

If only I could narrow it down to 25. The five I chose are just a small percentage of the folks I'd like to see done. I currently have my sculptor friend working on Michael York & Jenny Agutter from Logan's Run (luckily we're splitting the cost on that one, as he wanted them as well).



I never heard of Amy Robach, but good luck in your search. I'm working on the same thing for my wife and I (luckily I have a HS that my wife says looks quite a bit like me as a younger man), but trying to find one that matches my wife is problematic (might have to go the custom route). (I'm with you, Peaches, Liza Minelli, would be ideal for me, as that is who my wife most resembles, even down to the hair style -- just repaint the hair from black to strawberry blonde and I'd pretty much be set).

You are right, Kumik did a quite average jodie foster as she appears in the silence of the lamb, not bad but not very good either lol... Hot toys also produced a Keira Knightley from pirates of caribeans but she was an epic fail, at that time hot toys sculpting and painting were far from today's standards...

So as the OP said "high quality headsculpts" I listed these two in first cause I'd love to have a great sculpt of these two actresses! Razz

Harrelson would be very cool, I didn't wanted to extend the list but I'd love to see him next to his partner in True Detective played by Matthew Mc Conaughey (there is an expensive custom sculpt of him, painted by jacob rahmier it's an insane quality, but far from my price range)

And about Wilson and Stiller, whatever movie they appeared together in they were so fun I'd love to have the pair to recreate some sequences from starzky & hutch or zoolander

38 Re: Beautiful... on Thu Jan 10, 2019 9:15 pm

I hear you, Stryker…  When I’d originally posted the question, I did not have any specific answers of my own in mind, and, therefore, no inclination for how potentially difficult it would be to choose only five.  It’s befuddling, trying to treat such a long list with what relative minimalism; five from off the cuff is no problem, however, to give it the sort of serious consideration as would make one’s selections truly most preferential is absurdly challenging.  

As I’ve since stated, though, we should perhaps consider these responses as being only as tentative as the time, entirely subject to change…  

Sighs…  

I did see your post about a self-custom recently; I’ve always had an interest in little representations of myself for all the adventures and experiences remembered and dreamed, as well.  I had a relatively easy decision for my own Head Sculpt, using a modified Dwayne Johnson; after repainting the eyes and giving him a beard I have a reasonably convincing likeness.  

Sometimes, the little lady is casually looking on, and I believe that it had been your post that prompted our initial conversation about her lack of presence among my figures (so, thanks for that one, big mouth, LOL).  

After the ensuing row (the result of which could only be called a “win-win”); I promised to do her proper justice in the 1:6...  Clearly, I did not take into account all the specifics for how I would accomplish this.

I do realize that Ms. Robach is probably a rather obscure reference, but the resemblance is really quite profound - especially the eyes, and with particular regard for the bone structure.  The mouth is very similar, although my lady’s lips are a bit thicker.  Even the hairstyle, though.  That photo seems to capture something of the essence nearly perfectly (although I dare say that Amy Robach, while ever lovely, is not as beautiful...  Sincerely, mine has the magical soul of an angel, endless passion, and so much warmth and sunshine inside her.… Not to mention a far better physique - although that’s quite beside the point here.)  Wink  

So…  This sculptor of yours, is he available?  LOL.  I’d hope to find something on the open market, of course.  Honestly, though, a commissioned Sculpt may be my only option for a truly accurate likeness - because she’s not letting up; this deal has been struck and well-sealed with a pinky-promise, among other very serious pacts…  

Stryker2011 wrote: my wife is problematic...


Indeed, sir, LOL.  Indeed…  (And yet, they are worth infinitely more than each and every measure of our effort, surely)...



Blackpool, that Kumik Jodie Foster Sculpt is probably yellowish, too, isn’t it?  I believe that I have seen the Keira Knightly Head, as well - and I must agree that it’s just not right at all.  Kumik, in my opinion, seems to make some of the most hideous Head Sculpts, and then attaches to them, lovely names like “Michelle Pfeifer” - when there is an utter and absolute absence of any actual resemblance…

It’s funny that you should mention it; I happen to dig True Detective, Season 1, too (and I’d been re-watching some of that just yesterday).  I would enjoy seeing both Woody and Matthew Sculpts.  They were both so well within their wheelhouses in those roles...  And that first season, I would predict, will sustain to remain superlative throughout any of the various reiterations to follow.

Also, I completely concur that some of the selections here have been both surprising and impressive - yours included.  



Ponti, George Foreman?  Wow, that’s an excellent idea, and I can definitely imagine that happening…  I’d be quite surprised if he doesn’t already have one of himself...  

Mr. Olmos is another remarkable choice, and he does indeed have a very distinctive complexion that would seem rather challenging to accurately render.  It’d be a matter of quite specific detail that would certainly require a keen eye for texture; but he also has such a strong mug that any decent likeness would yet be unequivocally his own.  

If I understand you correctly, though, a high-quality and truly accurately detailed Sculpt does indeed sound like a tall order, brother.



Peaches, If I may, I strongly encourage you to try your hand at anything and everything that interests you.  I have a suspicion that you're going to be spectacular at this...  



Ah, aesthetics…  Ever outstanding ideas all around, guys and gals...



I’m not giving up on my own list, but I must admit that I have trimmed it significantly by limiting it to only females for now…


So, without further ado, here are Five Beautiful Head Sculpts, wanting, waiting to have happen…


5) Olga Kurylenko - Not unlike some delicate exotic flower…  





4) Caterina Mureno - She rides a white horse across the beach in Casino Royale (2006)…





3) Piper Perabo - I simply cannot say why…   Wink





2) Rhona Mitra -  Not unlike some dangerous exotic flower…





1) Sandy Leah Lima - The sultriest voice in Brazil (check out Estranho Jeito de Amar, or Corcovado; the latter was performed live in Portofino, Italy, with Andrea Bocelli)…  Smile




Et voila...


I’m going to be out of town and hopefully off the grid for a bit over the next week or so, with my own beautiful lady.  Meanwhile, maintain the motivation and continual creation, and I’ll catch up with you all when I return…

i also vote for ann and nancy, i mean who wouldn't?

in all seriousness though this question really got me to thinking. the fact that there are so many people that arguably should have a sculpt already. and dont yet suprises me. probably i could make a long list but 5 is what you asked for. since we are asking for heart...

then i add following

1. young Brian Wilson...he is the reason we talk about the beach boys, and consider them practically equal to the beatles.



2. Anni-Frid Lyngstad, because ABBA, and because she is a goddess



3. do i even...she should have been done so long ago, since she is just impossibly cute, and nearly perfect. also a goddess, has an angelic voice, and even so probably too humble to ever admit it.



4. i know i probably am the only one here on this, but "Weird Al". mostly because he is him, and who among us doesn't love him?



5. Frank Sinatra, one of my heroes, and one of the best singers ever. i know...with the others i picked,  this one sticks out. trust me his is legendary and his songs are frankly classics.



if i really went on with this list, there could be over 100 probably, but thats for another time.

Oh I'd love the pixie that is Lindsey Stirling! Would need her head on the new 1/12 body, ROFL. She is so awesome! Weird Al also a great choice. I'm sorry to say that to me, all the gorgeous women kinda start to look alike after a while Sad But those with more character like Liza Minnelli, Lindsey, Stevie, Gina Torres, they have personality before beauty Smile I'd like that Smile

I kept seeing Lindsey all over FB, took me ages to realise what she actually did. She went up in my estimation when she liked one of my comments on her page. She did a post about sheet music, so I said "It's not sheet, it's brilliant!".

I can't think of 5 that haven't been done or mentioned. However, one I do want is a younger Peter Cushing so I can have a Van Helsing to go with my Dracula. I may attempt to 'de-age' an HT Tarkin if nothing else emerges.

CHEERS!

Of course, the one thing about all this is that what appeals to us doesn't necessarily appeal to the many. Mass appeal wins the day these days. I know Peter could probably knock out everything we ever list, but artists can sometimes get inundated and overwhelmed.

It's nice to dream, but, we often have to acknowledge that we may not see them realised

CHEERS!

Yep. And they can take quite a long time. The guy who's sculpted heads for me is generally very busy (not only with real life, but with sculpting jobs). He and I have been in communication about the Logan's Run heads since 2017. There's been progress, but then real life happens, and since my projects with him are more of a one on one thing, his priority is for group projects. I'm fairly patient when it comes to this stuff, so it takes as long as it takes.

Yeah, we live in a time where only yesterday is good enough. They have no idea what goes into this kind of thing. I used to paint heads for someone and I tried as much as I could to get them to a point where I was happy with them and it took time. It wore me out and quality began to slip, we just agreed that it was better that he went elsewhere.

CHEERS!

being a child of the 80s a lot of characters come to mind from movies that hold a special place in my heart.

but they won´t appeal to the masses so i´d wager they´ll not see the light of day anytime soon.

don´t get me wrong, i know there are wonderful custom sculpters that do amazing work and are worth every penny for their time and effort, it´s just that that particular head isnt so high on my priority list i´d spent more than a certain amount of money on it, or make spontaneous buy if a figure gets sold in parts.

1) peter falk as columbo
the older i get the more the series appeals to me

2) bolo yeung / bloodsport
no buddy movie session is complete without a good whiskey and bloodsport

3) michael ironside / total recall
okay it´s a 90s movie but the memories from that time all blend together in a musclebound arnie flash =) good times

4) rutger hauer / jugger(the blood of heroes)
had a bad copy on vhs back in the day and never found a proper blu ray version ever again

5) sven ole thorsen / thorgrim from conan
lots of arnold head sculpts and good material to build a proper conan, but who´s he gonna send to crom ? what is steel compared to a lack of enemies to crush

(it´s a close tie with james earl jones as thulsa doom)

  I guess I wasn't very clear in my post, I meant stuck in the sixties, as in, characters from shows and movies from the 60's.  I sculpture horses, therefore prefer figures that need a horse. Any clearer??
Jean


Wow, you sculpt 1/6 horses??? I am life-long horse lover,  used to show horses... and also to collect Breyer model horses when I was young. I'm dying for some 1/6 horses of the same quality....

While I mostly focus on collecting (and/or creating) versions of my various favourite fictional characters these days, I will always have that urge to collect model horses! :'')

(and p.s. being stuck in the 60s is good fun! even though I was born in the 80s and grew up in the 90s, my dad pretty much raised me on old hollywood films, so I can appreciate what you mean. Smile )
