Is it just me or John Green looks like James Potter nursing Harry?

Basic information - the sculpt is plain old Sculpey III + a pine sprig + a little tea saucer for the plate since I was short on time. There’s probably about 18 hours of sculpting/prep here done over the course of 6 days… mostly catching hours after work. I’d guess that Will is maybe about 9-10” tall from waist to hair, which was a lot bigger than I’d intended but it ended up working out well for photography. (Of course, now I don’t know what to do with it because it’s biggish. It’ll probably go to the basement workdesk.) It was fun, but Hugh Dancy has a very difficult face to sculpt… much harder than Mr. Mikkelsen. I think it’s because he doesn’t have any one feature that stands out, so everything has to be pretty uniformly spot-on for the resemblance to come across. I’m not completely satisfied with the resemblance on either head (they’re maybe 85% accurate at best), but I’m proud of them as speed sculpts.
I had fun doing the plate design for Hannibal’s head. I referenced Janice Poon's blog entries about designing food for the show… I love her work. She's so ridiculously talented and I love how she works an uncooked, recognizable portion of the animal into the plate designs. I tried to imagine what she'd do working with a whole head, including the antler. Kind of a stretch since her stuff is all very colorful, and this is flat gray with just different degrees of shine to differentiate. I ended up going with a winter-theme and using a pine spray, pomegranates, and cranberries, with the horn for sort of a garnish.
Also, ha ha, the final version I entered I used a flashlight for lighting so I could get it more directed. Yeah… so me, sitting on my bedroom floor in the dark with a flashlight and my camera. That was awkward to get the shot!
Anyway, yeah. If Mads Mikkelsen sees this, I’m sorry about your decapitated head. The bust I did for the Season 1 finale is much more glamorous for you.
armeleia, once again, proving what an amazing sculptor she is!
