Wicked piece. I'm curious as to your process of making it.

Hey bud,

I made the armature first (welded), used oil-based clay to sculpt the portrait directly onto the armature, cut the clay portrait into pieces and made molds of each piece, did an iron pour, welded the iron to the steel armature, used a plasma cutter to cut out sheets of steel, bent and welded the shapes onto the armature.

I hope this helps clarify a little.
