OvomorphMember26 XPDec-17-2012 3:26 AMJust started this at the weekend. I'll be back with sizes tonight or tommorow and more pics at the end of the week. I think I may do two versions from this: an opening one revealing the Engineer's head and also this whole head as a finished piece in itself. [IMG][/IMG] [IMG][/IMG] [IMG][/IMG]

OvomorphMember0 XPDec-17-2012 1:14 PMTHis is a good idea. Good luck on your work. I was hoping for a hollow version to see your head looking though the engineer's mask.

OvomorphMember0 XPDec-17-2012 10:43 PMYes I bet it could be used in 'Prometheus, The Musical'.

OvomorphMember0 XPDec-17-2012 11:53 PMVery cool Zeta R! Just think you are following in the footsteps of the great man himself HR Giger. Remember him carving away on the set of Alien? That would be great if you could make a hollow one that fit over an Engineers head and comes apart. It would be challenging though to make it stay supported while it dried and during firing in the kiln....


OvomorphMember26 XPDec-18-2012 2:57 AMThanks again for your comments everyone. @NCC and Indy: er - it's a tad tiny to wear and run around the house or a West End theatre with I'm afraid - check the dimensions above - purely ornamental purposes only, lol. @nostromo001 - thanks a lot, I'll never aspire to the great Giger by any stretch. As I've mentioned in my first post, I may be making a second moulding of this where it will split to reveal the Engie head inside like the film. Not 100% decided on that yet though.


OvomorphMember26 XPDec-18-2012 3:00 AMIt's still in progress everyone, so it looks scruffy at the moment. I'll post more pics towards the weekend. Stay tuned.

OvomorphMember0 XPDec-18-2012 6:32 AM".., I may be making a second moulding of this where it will split ." When finished both could make nice display items. Speaking of the split did anyone find that David too easily found the snout catch to raise up and then lift off the mask?

OvomorphMember0 XPDec-18-2012 6:57 AMI guess I just chalked it up to his higher IQ. He looked at the x ray first perhaps and that guided him - but I am speculating here. I did notice how he went right to it and opened it up as if he had practiced it for days.


OvomorphMember0 XPDec-18-2012 9:26 AMmaybe ha has x-ray vision hahaha lol naughty david


FacehuggerMember143 XPDec-18-2012 9:46 AMI always thought it just wasn't locked - just a catch holding it down. More than likely its probably down to them not wanting him fiddling about wasting precious film time :S ...ah yes nice sculpture as well!

 "It's almost as if they are making it up as they go along" :D


OvomorphMember26 XPDec-18-2012 2:44 PM@Indy John - 'Speaking of the split did anyone find that David too easily found the snout catch to raise up and then lift off the mask?' Yes - I got a whiff of "here's one I prepared earlier" lol. It should've been a slow, more visceral reveal. It looked a bit like - er - Hot Toys.......
