This is an idea that I've been toying with making for a while. With the lowering of costs for 3d printing making sculptural work digitally for output is now totally affordable. I'm itching to get some of these pieces printed out and then I can go to town with the decoration(painting). I often have this vision of a black and white world where uber realism appears sporadically and in patches, This idea can be pushed so so far and I'm exploring this in my sketchbooks with a view to getting these into 3D. This is a first step, and during the process I get to explore skull structure and facial details, all good.
And a little fun and experimentation that's going down a rather Clive Barker kind of a direction. Can't say I disapprove myself.
