Well, I missed a few days in there. My work schedule got the best of me and I chose sleep over sculpting. Now that I’ve finished my work week, I’m back to sculpting.
I added more material and wrinkles to the pants and finished the hair. I also added the buckle to the boots. I think he’s coming along well at this point.
Okay. Work is really starting to get in the way. Or maybe it’s the combination of work and sleep. I did manage to squeeze out a few minutes of time to work on sculpting. Well. It wasn’t really sculpting exactly, but rather sculpting related.
Starting with the blank that I made earlier in the week by pressing it between two acrylic blocks, I shaped the sword blade using various grades of sand paper stretched over a small sanding block.
Today was another quick sculpting session. I didn’t do much really. I added a bit to the deltoid area just to bulk up the shoulders. I also added the beginnings of his hair. At this point, it’s just shaped clay with no real details.
I have also funished making a number of sculpting handles for future projects. Let’s just say now I should never run out.
I only had a short time to sculpt today and I didn’t make it to finish the sword and flintlock yet. So, I worked on the details of the torso and collar area.
Reviewing the pictures, I might need to add a but more on the deltoids…
Day 8 say some progress on the figure itself again. I did not get much time to work on it but I did work on the head and face.
