Norman Bates Color Psycho Rainman sculpt bash
« on: May 19, 2017, 02:38:20 PM »
Ok...so I bought one of the raw head sculpts from Rainman back when they were available last February (expensive!) It finally arrived early this week. Presented for your approval (hopefully)...Norman Bates.

1. Head sculpt by Rainman
2. Paintwork and bash by yours truly
3. Custom clothing by AJ Clothiers
4. Base by Engraveyard

That is sweet, Richard!  If you don't mind me asking, what was the price of the head sculpt and does he still offer them?

Weird, I didn't think much of the sculpt until I saw the one of him facing screen right. THAT is a great likeness!

Is the wig real hair or molded? Can't quite tell.

Anyway, nice!!

I too feel that the profile picture is stunning!  Looks just like him!  The others make it look kind of off, but that angle...  WOW!   Zombie Roll Eyes

Molded wig. What's funny about Perkins is....he is a strange face to capture. Like William Shatner. But the sculptor did a great job. When people are young and pretty...they dont have as many distinguishing features. When we get old and wrinkly (like DeForrest Kelley) sculptors have more features to work with. Does that make sense? It sounded ok in my head,lol. :angel:

Makes total sense. That's why I'm amazed whenever Hot Toys is able to capture the likeness of, say, Scarlett Johansson.

Yes...she's definitely in both of those categories. :-[

Great job, Anton. Looks nothing like Karloff, but a lot like Perkins. Maybe you can get a Vera Farmiga figure to keep him company.

HAHAHA! ;D ;D Thanks Mordy! 8)

That show is over now. My brain can rest. It has been purged from my memory banks. What's Vera from those Conjuring movies have to do with Psycho? Nothing according to my memory banks,lol.  :angel: :angel:
