Post image for Maximus

Close-up , 1/6th Scale, Sculptured by Guy Archer, Produced by Needful Things, Painted by Alex Castro

Maximus was the only figure that was especially picked for this book. Besides the figure being modeled after the popular movie Gladiator and famous actor Russell Crowe, it had strong qualities such as the expression of the face, the open mouth and size, which I would be able to use to demonstrate my skin tone techniques as well as the techniques for his mouth and teeth. On this particular model, the most challenging area is the mouth and the teeth. This is also a highly muscular model that I decided to take a statue approach to avoid any complications of seams. Overall I was pleased with the design of the model and its presentation.
