huge alien bust ,kidwell
http://www.kidwellconcept.comHi all , its been a little while
I have been fooling around with wed clay lately and its mega cool stuff . I can see why the big boys in the movie studios prefer it . You can get some wild textures with it and also its a very fast moving clay . I started this guy 2 days ago. I would have to be on crack to push this much traditional clay in that time .
notice my boy giving him the ufc stare down .
I am calling this one the govnor at least until I can find something better . always up for suggestions there .
anyway this one is three times life size or this alien 1/1 ..huge
have a good day

I suggest you start seing it as a 1/3 size alien rather than a huge one.
Don't be afraid of making an alien that might be too human. Some people try to avoid this kinda things by exagerating certain things to make them more alien (like increasing the size) and what they acomplish is directing the attention of the viewer towards that particual thing that was exagerated and thus rendering everything else secondary.
We can only refer to the unknown by refering the known! If we don't know it then how could we talk about it? That is why we need humanoid aliens in our fiction like yours. In reality if aliens do exist they would more than likely be like anything we have never seen, why? Well all we have to do is go under our oceans, or under the ground and we are gonna find creatures that are totally different than us, now if just by changing the natural elements in our own world we get such severe diversity then what would creatures from many lightyears away would be?
But then from a psychological perspective; to us the known defines the unknown therefore we have humanized everything even our gods!
I do have an idea as for the name, how about "The Sanctioner!"

Awesome stuff, Kent - I'm with TeaMonster, is that going to be a mask - a hood ornament - star of Mardi Gras - what?

There's something about your work that's always grand. Grand details at grand sizes. You have a real talent for breathing a sort of epic feel into your work, and this alien bust is another fine example of your craft.
Having the bust in the same shot as the child really does give a sense of just how much work went into this. And makes it feel more like a freshly discovered relic.
Is this something we're going to see available in a limited run?
... a cry went up into the shuddering air, and faded to a shrill wailing, passing with the wind, a voice bodiless and thin that died, and was swallowed up, and was never heard again in that age of this world.
