Just finished and still needs the hardware, but very happy with how my first Roy came out... I may darken the blue marks slightly with a little airbrushing, but other than that and the hardware, this is a finished product.
My next project, other than work for customers will be my ULTIMATE III... my 1:1 near-perfect copy of the original hero mask from part 3. I think I finally have enough information and practice with all the masks that I've done to begin my masterwork, and I've even found screen-accurate straps on ebay (of course). The principle difference between my previous 3 (seen below) and the upcoming one will be in the paint cracking technique. Instead of drawing it on in pencil, its going to be etched into the basecoat, then washed and clearcoated over, so it SHOULD look much more authentic than previous masks. Since I'm going for microscopic accuracy, this mask may take about a month to do.
I am also nearly finished with the process of improving my latex sculpt "That Horrible Face" to give him a nose and mouth area that are much more faithful to the Doug White makeup job (now that I finally have good profile pics!) The improvement is already coming along great, just need to make a few final adjustments and I will have pictures up soon. Thanks for stopping by and thanks to Jasonsfury of Fridaythe13thfilms for the publicity!!
