    UPDATE* Jan 26th 2012

    I Posted this project on Reddit the other day, it got alot of attention and made the front page. Reddit Link

    It gathered enough attention to have a article written about it. Link to article, I was pumped. I am going to be in New York in Feb for Toyfair and I am going to try to drop it off at Colberts studio while I am there.


    UPDATE* Sept 14th. Painted Sculpt. I am hesitant to paint the eyes because I want to make sure I get it right let me know what you think

    I was gonna say the same before i even saw downforce's post. Color hair and glasses and this will be pretty spot on. If anything i would thin the jaw line a little. nice work.

    Looks great, you even have his ears down. But the hair needs work, maybe the hairline too.

    Sweet thank you. any suggestions for the last 20%

    Thank you, Colbert has weird ears. The hair is still a WIP its just a place holder right now.

    Thanks for all of the positive feedback.

    I was gonna say it was the T-1000, but yeah that does look just like Colbert.

    T-1000 was my first guess. George W. Bush was my second guess. I watch Colbert every night, but I guess I'm too used to seeing him with glasses. BUT! Once I knew it was supposed to be Stephen Colbert I now can't see it as anyone else. :)  Great job!

    I haven't before, This is only my second likeness. But I got a few Pm's about commissions, and I think I might look into learning how to cast 1/6th heads.

    Update. Ok Iv'e tweaked the sculpt fixed the hair and its 98% done. I just want to find glasses before I fire the sculpt.

    Anyone know where I can get 1:6 glasses that would bea match colberts? even something close, some sort of rimless glasses.

    Reading glasses are hard to come by in 1/6th. Most bent by good companies is going to be genre/sci fi or military styles. DiD makes a nice circle frame, but what you're thinking is going to be hard to find. Shapeways and some plastic for a custom?

    Updated pics on the first page, let me know what needs tweaking. I'm still looking for glasses if anyone has any suggestions.
