Life size bust of Ron Perlman as the wise cracking Hellboy


I wanted to capture a world weary, “yeah, what you looking at” kind of expression, so you don’t know if he’s going to be sarcastic, or take a swing at you.

After collecting as many photographs as I could find, and using screen caps of angles I couldn’t, he was sculpted over several weeks. Once I had an expression I was happy with, the skin texture was added, and the wet clay sealed before being moulded in fibreglass. A Platinum silicone and fibreglass was then made, de-seamed and painted in subtle layers. It’s not obvious, but without them, he would look flat red.

Next human hair was implanted, and acrylic eyes made to look like contact lenses.
