"Blade"

 

 

Life size portrait bust of Wesley Snipes as “Daywalker” vampire hunter: “Blade”.

After a look decided on, reference photos were collected of Wesley, and an armature made from steel. Water based clay was then added and refined over several weeks until I was happy. The finished sculpt was then moulded in fibreglass and a pigmented silicone skinned casting produced. After seaming and painting in a number of layers for flesh, the tattoos were marked out and painted.

Next, hair was pre-curled and inserted into the scalp.

Eyes and teeth fashioned from acrylics and inserted finished off the sculpture, and a base made to finish him off..
