Many of you know I'm a hug Superman fan. I've been trying to capture Reeve's likeness for years now and I think this time I finally did it. The paint job (as it is now) might resemble Routh, but I think that's because the eyebrows are too thick and arched. Then again, Routh resembled Reeve a lot too. I've included a WIP pic with the eyebrows unpainted to show what the sculpt really looks like. I think when I actually paint the face, the likeness will be even closer. In any case, I think it's a better likeness than the new 12" Mattel Reeve. What do you guys think?

I think the reason it resembles Routh is that the face is too long between the eyes and the mouth.
If you can shorten that distance (easier said than done, I know) it will look a lit more like Reeve.
I did a quick photoshop, but I can't upload it from work.
I'll email it to myself at home and you can PM me if you want to see.
In any event, it is a very nice sculpt job. I know how hard it is to do heads from scratch!

If I can re-work those eyebrows and then paint the face (it's unpainted now) the Reeve likeness will be evident.
CountPichula - Thanks for the encouragement! I sculpted the entire thing using Super Sculpey. There's no base head in there. It's all sculpted from scratch.

It looks more like Brandon, but I can see a hint of Reeve in there. The ultimate mix?
