    Hi everyone. i have lurked here on and off for a few years and would like to share some of my latest project pieces with the community here. There are some great projects featured here and a lot of talented people.
    I wont spam the board with a ton of threads so here are a collection of my favorite images from some of my work.

    These first images are of a series of reserviors I ahve been working on.

    This second res has clear eyes to show the fluid inside and a clear domed head to also feature the fluid.
    The hose barbs are in the mask.

    This next series of images is from a project called Weyland Yutani P.ortable S.tasis C.hamber. It was made last year to coincide witht he relase of the Aliens Vs Predator movie for a customer in NewYork.

    This next project is called HRG Tribute and was built for a customer as a tribute to my favorite artist and his HR Giger.

    And this last case was made for another NewYorker.
    It is called Project Cobra and was made because the customer has a pimped out Cobra mustang and he thought his pc should be pimped out also.
    The clear eye on this side of the case has a blue led buried inside and connects as the hdd activity light.

    Welcome to the forum bonzanego.

    Superb work there, I love that res with the clear eyes, I bet it looks even better with the tubing connected into the front. And the detail on the HR Giger tribute is incredible! I like, a lot.

    these pieces are all sculpted from my head or from photographic refference. I get accused of ripping off model kits (like the face hugger) from time to time so I photograph the sculpture process to dispell that.
    Some of the projects shown were made of fiberglass (cobra), others are polymer clay like the chest burster. I also use a homemade compound for some things like the Giger.

    Uh - where can we see those photos of the sculpture process? I would love to see the steps it took to get there.

    Maybe you could even do a guide for a resevoir covered in sculpted stuff.

    The head dome is clear in the production version.

    skull res finallized.
    The skull pictured here has the eyes clear just as the mask does, this is the finallized version with a clear domed skull cap, the only seam on the res is the cap and sports a rubber gasket to seal the res when the lid is tightened on.
    The hose barbs on this design are located on the back, the out barb is on the bottom and the in barb is up top so the fluid is agitated right where it can be seen through the dome.
