Shaak Ti 2 by MarkNewman Shaak Ti 2 by MarkNewman
This is a premium format (1/4 scale) super sculpey sculpture of Shaak Ti , a Star Wars character produced by Sideshow Coleectibles. I believe the original painting here was by Kat Sapene.

Thanks!
You are one of the few that actually give tips about the art, and since, in my opinion you are one of the best, we certainly appreciate it!

i'd love to know your workflow on sculpey too Mark. not easy to bake one this size. i have ofetn wondered if you do a proportion of your figures in epoxy and then layer the sculpey on after so you can work without concerning yourself about very thick areas of sculpey.?

I do sculpt a core shape on the wire armature with super sculpey bulking it out.
leaving areas at the joints open for pose adjusting. I then bake it. Then I sculpt
over that with SS for a firmer armature form.

When you said SS at the end there, did you just mean super sculpey again? I've read some people use primo after baking the core.

Amazing!
Do you bake the model many times and add on top, or is it one take???
I'm trying to do something similar, but I'm afraid to rebake because it might break...

Stunning work as always Mark, the detail and precision is spot on and the likeness is clean and crisp.

Instant favourite... you know, I think there was another Shaak Ti sculpture on the sideshow collectibles site, I gotta say I much prefer this one. :D
