I had a chance to mold the horns on this guy a few days ago, so was abel to finish my demon up.
the horns are Slushed resin, backed with riged foam.
the Skin is Platsil, backed with foam.
its painted with Caulcking and oil paints.

OMG! that is truly amazing, the skin texture,wrinkles and colours are brilliant, congratulations! can you explain the process of slush resin with foam? And forgive me what is Caulcking? Congratulations for finally finishing your piece and posting it up for us to see.
awesome work, paint is amazing, made with an airbrush?
Details are great
The only thing is the place where horns go, the skin part seems to be not tied enough
Without this little detail, all the character is great, looking like an old demon
Wow, I love it. I almost passed it by because it didn't have a tumbnail. This is some great work you have produced here.
I would be great to see a quick "how to" for this one. I love the skin textures and paint job.
Keep up the great work and thanks for sharing.

yeah i figured alot of people would pass it buy since there is no thumbnail....how do you put one in?
Caulcking is what is around your shower, and inetween some tile's etc...
its a plumbers silicone paste basdically.
you can get it clear, and then thin it out with naptha./...so its like water...and then tint it with oil paints.
this is how you can paint silicone, as it is made of silicone it will bond.
yes, the skin was painted with an airbrush alot....id say about 80%, the rest is hand painted.
about the honrs, Thats the way ive always thought the transition would look if people had honrs.....if it was not a noticbel "ring" of flesh around the horn I think it would look like the skin grew right over the horns....rather then the horns growing out of the flesh.
but its purley an opinion.
great life-likeness! great expression on his old face!
watery eyes... absolutely brilliant.
i must agree, though, with mr. brown about the horn/skalp setting.
i thought that the part(s) where horns come out of a head ought to look more like the area where the fingernails come out of the tips of our fingers.
Fingernails, in the end, are, very much like horns, made of sort of 'condensed' hair. if you know what i mean.
really just a thought though...
apart from that little nag - stunning!
(otherwise known as muffinman)
'...girl, you thought he was a man -
but he was a muffin...!'
absolutely incredible. modelling and texturing are/is superb
The best model I've ever seen....and THAT's a fact!
man I can't think how it is possible to make sculpture like that
On some pictures you can see skin flakes like old people have sometimes because their skin is dry. And the horns look like they are real. I like the #3 photo.
Great job on the skin! The painting on the skin is really amazing as well as the detail of the model its self. Nice work.
My only suggestion( though coming from a 2d animator and not a sculptor) is the merge between skin and horn. Mainly the hard shadow between skin and horn seems to need adjusting.
Though, this may not be so noticeable under different or intended lighting as you know.
I'm now off to smash all my tools up and take up bread making. That is just astounding... If I had a hat I would take it off too...

very nice piece, I see you answered your own question about how to add thumbnails to your post titles too, can you point me in the right direction for that (answered my own question, attach the image you want used as the thumbnail)

Some of My Work
What a job!!! It's crazy!!!
so...this is going into spectrum then right? damn you and your skills. besides just the plain astounding nature of this piece, i especially like the color/texture of the skin, like i can just feel the skin sagging lower every second. so what's next? my eyes want more MORE MORE!!
this is freaking sick!!
thank you all very much for the nice comments.
Sorry probably being dim but what is Platsil?
not dumb at all, i acutally shouldnt have said platsil, as thats very confuseing...I'm just used to calling this particular silicone by its brand name, Platsil gel10.
Platsil is basically an abreviation for platinum Silicone.
there are 2 types of silicone, platinum based and Tin based.
platinum is a bit higher grade, medical grade silicone that will last longer.
platinums are also a bit more tricky to work with because they can contaminate very easily through sulpher, latex, etc....
the system i use, platsil gel 10, Availabel throughh polyteck, can produce some of the most flesh like results i have ever seen with any other silicones.
Oh i see it was casted in plastil. But what was the orginal sculpt done in?
Sorry so many questions but was such a great sculpt just like to know how it was done.
it was origionally sculpted in Chavant NSP Medium.
I posted pictures of the sculpt on here I belive, maybe not.
you can see the origional sculpt on my website as well.
And what is your website please?
