    Great movie. One of my favorites as it's the very first DVD I ever bought.

    That's a great looking sculpt. No mistaking it's Eastwood. I'm looking forward to this.

    Looks off to me,

    The thread title and hairstyle are all that say Clint to me.

    CHEERS!

    Re: Kelly's Heroes Project: Kelly (WIP)

    Eric,
    Please understand this in the utmost respect.
    I agree with Rog, this is off
    it may be a little difficult for those of us that are non-artists to express.
    but consider
    If you are going specifically for "Kelly":
    This Eastwood may not look young enough
    Don't worry too much about the "signature" Eastwood hair-do
    as most will put "Kelly" in a helmet
    Also consider THERE ARE A LOT of Eastwood sculpts out there
    None of which are perfect YET
    I think this looks a lot like a retouch of the Yamamoto "Bounty Hunter"
    That being the most antiquated and weakest of the bunch
    What was wrong with that is whats wrong with this: overemphasis on eyebrows
    wider at temples
    too narrow at jawbone and chin
    eyes may need to be a little squintier
    My currently preferred "Kelly" sculpt, I believe was done by Andgor, although it does'nt match up to Maddox's "Crap-Game" and "Oddball" for continuity and uniformity. it seems to match his age and neck-length.
    btw the Brother Production " Harry" is conversely too muscular.

    please take it for what it is, best of luck on this project

    Jim

    Re: Kelly's Heroes Project: Kelly (WIP)

    Thanks for the comments Jim. I definitely want feedback. I feel its a bit off as well, but I haven't been able to pinpoint it exactly. I decided to post the image here so I can get other's feedback.

    Any constructive comments are extremely helpful.

    I'll pass your comments over to the sculptor.

    Thank you.

    Question. Are you saying that the temples need to be wider and the jawbone and chin narrow or that the temple is too wide and the jawbone and chin need to be narrower?

    Eric
    Bassically I was pointing out what I see as wrong
    So what I'm suggesting is the opposite i.e. narrow (or pinch in) the temples.
    widden the chin, excentuate or widden the corners of the jaw bone

    Re: Kelly's Heroes Project: Kelly (WIP)

    For me, it's the whole shape of the face. The features don't look right with it. Clint has such a distinctive face, but, he is tough to get exactly right. It's like Bruce Willis, there are so many bald sculpts with squints purporting to be Bruce that are just way off the mark.

    It's like they pick the most distinguishing features and think that'll do. Bruce and Clint are alike in that there's more to them than a thousand yard stare. It's lucky that Clint is a well photographed actor. More careful study of the reference material is needed.

    He needs a stronger jaw that's for sure. People have such a strong image of him in their minds it's easy to see when something is wrong but difficult to articulate just how to put it right.

    Have a delve through this and you'll find what you need:

    Re: Kelly's Heroes Project: Kelly (WIP)

    Might need two versions, a helmet head and trademark hairdo head, sort of like the HT Platoon Charlie Sheen. It's hard to find a good front-view reference pic. I like the Clint "squinty scowl" in the smaller picture on the bottom (i.e., less of a smile on the sculpt, more of a frown).

    The first thing that struck me as needing attention is the mouth. Looking at the 1/1 photos, the top and bottom lip (extremities) should be equal. The sculpt has the bottom lip too thick, the top too thin.

    For what its worth, it looks very much like Clint to me. Nevertheless, it is a Dirty Harry Clint and not a Kelly's Heroes Clint.

    Re: Kelly's Heroes Project: Kelly (WIP)

    I think the main thing that's off is the mouth. It's too symmetrical, the lower lip too full and the upper is the wrong shape as well - a bit too bowed. This sort of thing is very hard to describe, the the photo's above are very good representations of Clint in that movie.

    I can't sculpt either, but I have an artistic eye and can tell good work from bad.

    Thanks for all the feedback. The sculptor and I have talked it over and have decided to go in a different direction.

    Stay tuned.

    Well if you cant nail the sculpt now...
    Dont show any upper eyelid.
    Forget Clints non regulation haircut and accommodate the helmet.

    See if you can pick up the CH Kelly. It might be a good base to work from.

    my 2 cents are the ears need work, too big and sitting too low, never the less a great start.....

    Re: Kelly's Heroes Project: Kelly (WIP)

    I agree that, to date Andgor's is the best custom Clint "Kelly" out there. This one has too much hair and could not properly wear a WWII helmet.
    As for mass produced Clint? Headplay's prototype looks hard to beat.

    Thanks for all the inpuet! Much appreciated!

    As for the hair, I'm planning on offering 2 versions. Puffy hair and helmet hair version.

    I agree, Headplay's Clint is awesome, but we're going for a much younger Clint.

    I love Hanouman´s style, it is very unique. I´ll buy anything that he does and becomes available. Big fan.
    I love Hanouman's style as well. The Clint that we're going for will take into consideration Hanouman's distinctive style.

    Stay tuned.
