reserved for later :) Before I get blasted for any face blemishes or lack of 100% likeness let it be known that I am no portrait sculptor :o

I started with this:

Oh yeah I completely forgot about that figure. Did you cut off all the rings he had?

He only had on one and I actually like it so I'm keeping it on there. He had a coke addict's pinky nail I had to trim though :lol

That is a very nice job on the reworked head. You can tell who it is supposed to be.

While I think it looks great as is, one very minor critique from me is that it does look a tad thick in the cheek/jawbone area for a relaxed look though.

I look forward to a painted up version.

tricky face - and thanks by the way - It caved in under the cheeks too much so I filled them in a little - perhaps too much. Hopefully paint will make it peter. if not I'll strip it and sand them down a little.

its a minor suggestion but he doesnt have as full of an upper lip as the base head. Maybe fill that in too?

What about this head. This was a quick photo overlay and I know it will be hard to get just right but I think it could look good. Im going to give it a go as soon as summer hits.http://i900.photobucket.com/albums/ac204/robbiethepainter/lievsabertooth.jpg?t=1272569405

Ill have to change the hairline and build up the upper lip but I think it could be done.

I think that will work really well... nice work. The movie was pretty awful (IMO) but I though Creed was well done.

That's the same head, it just had the neck removed for the slim body. I plan on casting these heads so I wanted to make a neck to fit most Truetypes. It would look awesome on a Wolvie or Comedian body but not a lot of folks have those a laying around. So yes - I think it would work :)

I agree - he was one of the better things about that flick.

I was hanging out in The Village today in New York City, and I saw Liev Schreiber walking by. I had to take a second and a third look cuz I could not believe how freaking big this guy is in person. He had to be about 6'3" big broad shoulders, a big head with the Sabretooth beard and easliy looked to weigh about 210 lbs. I couldnt believe this was the same wimpy guy from KATE & LEOPOLD. No wonder he was cast as Sabretooth, he's huge. And was the best part of X-Men Origins-Wolverine.

Agreed, and a serious fail on the part of HT for not doing him themselves. I'm finding their lack of faith in secondary characters....disturbing...

Not feeling the eyes. I tried to keep the HT eyes but I think I'll re-do them.

Thanks guys! Robbiethepainted nailed it on the head with his lip suggestion. Filled in the upper lip and the temples last night. Need to finish painting him up then I'll post some follow up shots.
