Very nice! I scaled the image down so it would be about the 1:1 scale size, and it looks dang nice!

The pictures are fine... but when the actual item is 1 inch tall, seeing it 10 inches tall makes it look like there are many issues that could have been addressed. Seeing it in actual size allows you to see how it really looks in real life.

I do prefer larger images though, since I have this nice big monitor here (28")

I actually had to reduce the view in explorer down to about 25% in order to see them in the proper scale. (It's that gadget at the bottom right showing 100%)

It's an awesome sculpt. Not sure about the colour scheme on the eyes though - the Barlow contact lenses had big, almost fluoro-yellow irises if recall ... anyway please do post the end-product asap  !

Lighting is everything, and my picture taking is crap.  the eyes are yellow with a black "dot" in the middle of them. But everything looks orange courtesy of GE 75 watt artificial lighting, lol!

IIIIIIIIIII Like it! Having sculpted a couple smallish heads like that myself. Nice job on the hands too. What material is that?

I didn't sculpt it, its just a kit bash.

Body and hands are a Buffy "Master" figure
Head is from Russ over at Sideshow freaks....I couldn't even sculpt a decent "rock"
Robes (not here yet) will be from Soverign Studios

That is so well done and creepy too.  I didn't know my boss posed for any publicity shots.  Well done.

Wow, that looks just like my father-in-law, only not quite as ugly.       ;D
