Ant-Man was one of my favourite Marvel films in recent memory and Paul Rudd played a big part in why I liked it so much. So I decided to take a head sculpt and give it a new paint job, because there is no such thing as too much Paul Rudd. Scott Lang also showed up in Captain America Civil War and I am already excited for Ant-Man and Wasp.
I had to remove the original paint before adding a new paint job. Smiling head sculpts are by far one of the biggest challenges, and I don’t envy the people that also give it a try. Stoic and emotionless characters lend themselves to sculpting a bit better, and sometimes as a result having to capture a sincere emotion in a head sculpt can be difficult, let alone painting it. Nevertheless I always want to try to step out of my comfort zone and I still believe compared to several other head sculpts of smiling characters, this one holds up quite well.
