    Raf, great idea on opening up this thread to take a peak at what you do.
    Great job on this sculpt.
    May I suggest you include one of your past projects in this thread, specifically the job you did making a CM T-800 chrome shiny?

    Lars it was done by a company called Fright Rags. They make limited edition T-shirts based off horror movies past and present. This particular set was done to celebrate The Evil Dead 25th aniversary. It's essentially a hinged wooden box wrapped in a latex skin. Inside the box included a limited edition Evil Dead shirt, a Home Sweet Home magnet and a prismatic sticker of the poster art. The set was limited to only 100 copies and each box was hand made by artist Monte Ward. Monte is an incredible artist but I guess having to make 100 of these, mines #89, the quality of the paint work started to slip. I had Raf work his magic and now I am extremely happy with it.

    Cool thread. Your heavy duty customisations generate a lot of interest and buzz, so I guess it's easy to overlook the fact you're working on these more low-key jobs often too. Great to see it all collected here for us all to enjoy.

    Hey that 1:3 Joker mask was a revelation, and the head of Sam... what are they if not faces? I reckon if you put your mind to it you could sculpt humans.
    Listne to me making it sound so easy! :lol: :geek:

    After seeing what Raf has been able to do I'm convinced that he could sculpt humans , the only real difficulty lies in capturing a likeness !!!
