I think it’s finished…

Got many pictures today from helpful friends and fans of the actual sculpture I never knew existed. So I went back over the entire sculpture and did it over again.

Tomorrow I make the mold. Oh brother.

Some Furrows

After looking at more still pictures from the show theres enough of that bad foam wrinkling that I decided to put in the faint hint of them to try and maintain some authenticity.

Some adjustments

Well looking over the episode full screen and freeze frame I stand corrected by my old friend Guy Conrad who was observant enough to suggest that the forehead furrows were a result of foam compression due to the weight of the foam upon itself. Correct. I have worked with foam latex enough over the years that I should have realized this. Interesting that in pictures it looks like sculpted furrows. There are some painful closeups in the show that on todays modern monitors tells all unlike the old D1 NTSC TVs of the sixties. Man you could get away with murder back then.

The head is almost done. I added the indentation in the back of the head I missed before and changed a lot of the bone structure in the face. Problem is in every angle it looks different as the light plays on it. That and the fact that the foam piece itself is heavily shaded.

I think we are looking at a mold tomorrow.

Ducks in our pool

Was up at 7 am and found a pair of Mallard ducks swimming around in our pool. Nice sight first thing. We have never seen this before in our pool. I fed them and they took off later on. I figure they had been flying long range for awhile, got tired and spotted water to rest. The Squirrel has been with us for years now.

A little Photo Shop

Just taking a look before I go further with a little help from Photo Shop. If only we had this in the so called old days.
