    Icon Halo-inspired Sculpt -- WIP

    Here is a halo-inspired work in progress that I've been playing with on-and-off for a few weeks now. I'm hoping that posting it up here will motivate me to start working on it more often.

    My plan was to sculpt Master Chief jamming a plasma grenade up under a brute chieftan's jaw or chin. For anyone who doesn't know Halo, these are the big baddies in the game.

    I drew a quick sketch to get an idea.

    I bought some blue LEDs and plan to wire it up the armature into place at Master Chief's hand to hopefully get a plasma grenade that glows with a flick of a switch. I already have the wiring and batteries set to go when I begin building that part of the sculpt. Here is what I have so far.

    I wanted to focus a bit on the under structure even though it won't be seen under all the armor later on, just for a bit of practice and so I knew the form would be correct later.

    Most of the head done

    The in-game theater mode has been invaluable for studying both models. I can pause a replayed film at any point, zoom in, and take shots from any angle. Hopefully he will look something like this at the end...

    there's a whole range of sizes and shapes at the local AC Moore. they're only a couple bucks each.


    i had a problem with this big one though, i left it in the oven for too long (as you can see from the overcooked torso) and the cheap pine warped very badly. to fix it, it was screwed into the larger base you see below it.
