Head & Neck
COREY HARRISON’S MECHAGODZILLA
To allow the neck to sit in the correct position, tilted slightly downward, I added a PVC structure underneath. I then filled and held it in place with some expansion foam which gives the neck a bit of a curve to it.
The snout was a fun piece, did alot of drawings to come up with the basic size and proportioning of the head. Carved a lot of it out with foamular, then covered it in wood putty later to keep the dents and unwanted uneven surfaces visible.
This part is a bit private, but, to get the idea of the shape and angles of the foam, I tape overtop the section I can’t figure out. For instance, the plated cap of his head. Tape over it, layer by layer, draw out the outlines of the space, draw out the middle dividing line, then the plates themeselves. and cut free. from here I would place that over paper, clean my edges, and template and cut to foam.
