Overhaul

Thought I'd share pics of my amazing head sculpt on a figure - fully repainted, sealed and ready to go. This is my new favourite figure by FAR! Thoroughly enjoyed doing this and would gladly spend the time on the other brothers too - just not worth it with the standard crappy heads.

That turned out awesome! I will be working hard on some artwork commissions throughout the next 2 months. Once I get passed the jobs, I will commence the project with Raph and Leo. So much to do, so little time to do it all! Thanks for sharing your pics bud!

They look great but why dont you mix acrylic green paint with a bit of red with resin to make it less saturated to match the figure instead of casting in white ?

Awesome work!!

When I see this I see someone who doesn't need to pass the disgust that most passes when the Playmates or any other toy maker launches a new "definitive" version after you have already purchased the previous one and finds out you were made of Muggle. How good it should be to know modeling and sculpting.

Yeah they hire lame sculptors who dont care about turtles, this is why neca 1/4 looks great, Trevor is TMNT fan and he started his donatello as passion sideproject then it got greenlighted and turned into what we have today This is how it should be done.

We were waiting 27 years for figures like this

I cannot believe I just found out about this! Simply amazing. I am about to get into custom painting figures, and I want to start on these figures but the heads are horrifically bad. I have to keep an eye on your status because I want to buy Raph and Leo and hopefully Mikey too.

Thanks a lot! I'm glad you like it. Here's my latest update. I will be moving to a new home by the end of October. Thought it would be sooner, but that didn't pan out. So that's less than 2 months from now. I have all this time, to come up with enough scratch, in order to secure a decent home to rent (not buy), so that means, I need to keep my nose down to my drawing board and develop as much product as I can, to sell. My art, tends to make a decent sum, so I'm crossing my fingers, I don't have to over-exert myself to reach my quota.

Once my family and I are moved in and settled, I can finally resume work on this project and take it all the way.

There is no rushing this project and I really want to push the accuracy as far as I can. My Don is sitting by my desk and begging for his bros to be finished.

Thank you guys so much, for your encouraging words and tips/suggestions.

I wish I could give you the exact dimensions of the ball peg. I went about making a silicone mold of it and used that to make the holes inside the head.

I currently have about 7 more copies of Donatello heads, but they all need the bandana to be painted, which I'll get to maybe next week. I'll make those available and end production until I can get the other bros finished.

They'll be available on my ebay page soon and I'll give the tip off here, in case anyone's interested. If I don't make that deadline, forgive me. I'll try again another day.

Take care bros.


PS. Trevor is AWESOME.

How did you solve resin shrinkage problem? From experience i know that once it cures then its a bit smaller and wont fit anymore like original casted part
Did You make original head a bit bigger ?
