McCoy Sculpt - finished by DarrenCarnall McCoy Sculpt - finished by DarrenCarnall
This is my 1/6 McCoy "Wrath of Khan" head sculpt to go with my previous Spock piece.

As it's only my second proper head sculpt from scratch using wax (instead of my usual 'modifications' of existing toys) I'm REALLY happy with this. I can see the improvements over my previous piece already... I can't wait to do more and get even better.

There are many sculptors that I follow on here and Facebook who completely inspire me. People like the amazing Trevor Grove ( *trev-solo ) - the likenesses this man achieves are astonishing!! One day I hope to be that good! (hell, I'd be happy with anywhere close!)

So what do you think of McCoy.. does it look like him? I'm off to do some more now... KIRK next!!!

Absolutely uncanny. I particularly like the second-to-last angle here, but it's exceptional,  no matter how you look at it. Such incredible detail. Is this the one you painted for the other picture?

Awsome, just WONDERFUL job, and I totally love Bones, so I would tell you if it wasn't the right appearance, but's it's exactly him, the eyebrouws and everything. Just a huge WOW to your work!

Very impressive Darren! I think you've got the sculpting gift, and you didn't even know it till now! You are already good, so just think how great you will be if you keep doing this! I'm glad you found out how good you are at creating art! Cheers! :0)

Darren, you are so welcome! I love it when I get positive feedback. So, thank you! It does my heart good to know that you are going to keep going. I plan to keep going for as long as I am allowed physically, mentally and spiritually. I am working on an elephant in ceramic clay right now, and when I get him done, I will share him here on DA. I'm still planning to try and get my art dolls rockin' and rollin' too. Thank you for the encouragement! Take care my new friend! :0)
