    Disadvantages of having a small room the only space I have to sculpt is just by the entrance to my room where I use an old box and a piece of wood to sculpt on. Here is the current progress... I didn't spend too long but I am liking the way this bio mask is turning out. It has a sinister assassin/knight sort of feel to it. Still trying to get the symmetry down but the basic shapes are in place. IMG_3600.JPG IMG_3596.JPG IMG_3592.JPG IMG_3590.JPG IMG_3591.JPG i

    Its a personal concept. I don't plan on copying another's work or an existing mask. Thanks Jmen

    It's shape reminds me of an alien gray. I love the angled jawline and pointed chin. Very insect-like. Very mantis-like.

    I'm really happy the way it's turning out. Just some shaping adding clay, making it all up as I go along. Whatever feels right is usually right.
    Alien Grey's haunted me as a child when I played the game area 51... all I could think about are those aliens chasing me.. haha

    Thanks Jamie, I can see how this bio mask can look like the alien grey when stared at from the front view.

    It's 4 am... and here are my bio mask updates.
    I spent so long trying to correct any symmetry issues. Countless swear words later I realised some of the levels were not correct and regardless of how many times i fixed it it never looked perfect so i re-did the 'beak' area and it looks like this. I just want to finish this already.. and mold it then work on it some more... I feel as if my brain is going to explode very soon lol

    Thanks everyone!
    Here are some current progress photos. I place cling film over the top after applying 4 sprays of alcohol. What this does is cool the clay and allows the oil based clay to harden. While this process takes place in order to smooth out the top and remove any unwanted bumps I am raking it with a ruler there are around 4-5 layers of cling film. The end result will be a smooth surface if all gone correct.

    Molding time. The mold will not be that thick. As I will only need 1 or 2 casts. Going to make a Fibre glass shell that I can later re-use when I'm molding it once again but in resin form.

    What color will the lenses be? Are they going to be black? Or something different?

    Lenses will be pink/red/ultraviolet.
    Here are the first cast. I casted it in lots and lots and lots of resin. So it can be reworked/sanded.
    Love this bio mask...

    I can't wait to see the lenses!!!!! I can't find the proper word for how great this is!!! I don't want to say beautiful, because it's a cut above. Promise me in the next life you will come back as the City Hunter, and we can find eachother!!!

    This bio looks like a Ferrari, or Lamborghini Wreav. It's so sleek and perfectly feminine and powerful too. Amazing. I missed the part where you said you're going to be using a reddish visor for it. That will be amazing!

    Thanks Amanda, weirdly enough the mask looks like this particular design from ADI. However, I actually wanted it to be abit like the Berserker (Lancelot) helmet from the Anime series Fate Zero. I also wanted to incorporate features I liked and it ended up abit like the picture. Red/Pink you know like those mountaineering goggle lenses something like that. If only I knew where to get a visor like that...

    I know i am a bit late, but to cool off your clay, get yourself some keyboard duster in a spray can. Turn it upside down and spray your clay.

    I'm sure those who have me on facebook know of my little accident I had riding a bike down a hill. So me actually continuing some of the things I do is quiet a miracle. But hey, you know what I love most.. team work so I gave my cast to my good friend Lowdmekon who will be working on it further. I'm glad to have artists I can trust aiding me when I need it.

    :D thanks Jamie. It requires filling and lots of work but it can be done. It's going to be as smooth/sleek as Jose Mandera's Terminator Bio mask... I want the bio mask to be able to make the rain float effortlessly down the bio mask. 'Thinking of a movie scene' *Cue female Predator with a hood in the jungle looking up into the sky as rain drops and falls down her bio...* now that would be cool
