hey Bruce nice to see you and thanks. I manage some okay result since I mix MS and Duro, it sticks better and you can actually get a better finish IMHO.
Yep Claude, I also have the problem of the clean surface table. Now I try to sculpt indoors which reduces the dust and all stuff in the shed. Really, layers and layers of Mr Surfacer and "huile de coude" are really necessary to those kind of things. yes it really needs some time to do this kind of stuff, but I am ready to take it now.
Well, doing my military service, I got dumped with the guys that could barely read or identify their own hands, therefore they simply didn't notice that my shoes didn't look that good having other matters in their hands
I think you are right on all points David -and thanks for this greatly constructive comments - The trouble I had was that if you look at the top of the thread, I first did some much bigger hands but those were definitely too big and then I probably reduced those too much. But really it's not that much a problem the way I see it as in the end she mostly look like a small girl, her stature is more reduced than the ones of the guys I am currently sculpting. However there is something I feel you just have right: the ANKLES are too thick! definitely.. and perhaps the wrists too, but there is some wire going through it so I will have to be careful and probably thin it a bit as well using a Dremel.. Well thanks much you left me to think
Well Here are a bunch of heads, all sculpted at the same time. No ears they don't need those. Some eyelids are actually missing on those In progress shots.
They don't need to be as nice as Baba's -yet I happen to be pretty happy about the one the more to the left.
The one which is the more to the right is actually a first version of baba's head herself
So here is the first of the soldiers as done, quite ghostly position. No legs he doesn't need those. I ddin't fixed the helmet. the buttons are made of Magic Sculp and the hands are from Dragon.
Now there is a commonplace in modelling build logs that I can truly not understand. It's the "Well, I built that (engine..) and took great care in that, but now everything will be closed and nobody will be able to see the work".
Heck if nobody can see the work, then your work doesn't exists, as simple as that.
Here is the back of the guy, nobody will ever see it
