View Full Version : Gene Simmons headsculpt question .

07-08-2012, 11:33 AM
I'm planning a Gene Simmons ( KISS bassist ) bash and I'm looking for a suitable existing headsculpt to base it on . The hairstyle doesn't matter , as I plan on using real(ish) hair , but I need a long and slim face shape . ( I'm doing an early Gene , from 1973/4 ) .



I'm not looking for a "tongue-head" , but smiling/grinning (pic F or K ) would be cool . Any suggestions ?:dunno

What about the Neca ones.

The McFarlane figures are closer to 1/5 scale than 1/6 and therefore too large . ( They are also a pretty poor likeness , strange as that sounds !)

Is that it ?? No more suggestions ???

I was using a headsculpt for paint practice and once the "make-up" was on , it looked pretty good so if push comes to shove , I'll use that one . ( The project is still in very early stages , so there's no rush ).

Can you take a pic of the one that you used for practice.

Here you go . Please bear in mind the paint IS practice and it will be completely re-done ! I must have spent 30 years drawing Gene's make up on everything from schoolbooks to denim jackets , but each year/era has its own distinctive look .( I can probably tell you the year a photo was taken just from a close-up shot !) The head is from a 21st Century figure , I would prefer a more animated one , but I think I could get away with using it . I plan on using rooted hair .

Theres a guy on ebay named the farrow who does great KISS stuff. And he does many eras and sculpts as well.

He did my KISS set and they're probably my favorite piece. He's also on Facebook and has posted some of his work.

Here's one of his Genes.
