Victoria: How long have you been sculpting?
Reevz: About 7 years. I tried sculpting in high school but was more of a comic book artist. The more time passed, I connected with industry pros online and figured I'd try my hand at sculpting masks and I've been doing it ever since.
Victoria: How long does it take to create a cowl?
Reevz: Depends on the design and the deadline. Normally I block everything out in a a few hours, then I spend about a day or so getting the forms even and work on the symmetry. Then I spend another few days detailing and surface cleaning. The sculpting process goes pretty fast if it's something I'm doing for myself but most times a client will change the design along the way which adds more time to the final sculpting process. I then seal the sculpt, make the mold and once that is finished I am able to produce the castings. The whole process from sculpt to casting normally takes about 3-4 weeks.
Victoria: What's the most difficult cowl or accessory you've created?
Reevz: The new Wolverine cowl was pretty tricky. The mold needed to be done a certain way to keep the castings seamless. Also casting then in 2 colors is pretty laborious.
Victoria: What's your favorite piece you have made?
Reevz: Probably my ManBat mask. It was one of those commissions that came out better than I had envisioned. I was sad when I had to ship it out to the customer. I wanted to keep it
