The Teutonic Knights scene

Here some pictures of the setting for the Teutonic Knight vignette. It will contain two knigths, one on a horse and one standing in front in a winter setting near lake peipus (Battle on the ice). The Teutonic Knights are defeated and trying to find their way out. These two knights ran into some enemy forces and are determined to fight their way through. For sofar the story. For the sculpting I did some adjustments on the anatomy of the figure in the front. The figure on the horse needs still a lot of work regarding to the anatomy. The horse in the scene is a Art-Girona piece sculpted by Andrea Iotti. Which will recieve the typical horse clothing used by the knights those days. Well that´s it for this year, next year this will be one of my main projects to finish.

I wish everybody all the best for 2010, and happy modelling!


Sculpting the left arm

Due to 'Sinterklaas', Xmas diners, visitors and other parties there was almost no time left to model. I planned to finish some models before the end of the year but I just don't have enough time for modelling at the moment. Well at least I made a bit of progress on this sculpture. I was not satisfied with the belt around his shoulder. So I removed a bit of the uniform under the belt and now it´s closer to the body. I also added some more details to the belt and had to re-sculpt some buttons that fell of. The cloths on left arm are sculpted with the epaulet on the shoulder made from duro and Magic Sculp.
Still a lot of work to do but I'm happy with the looks and the progres of the figure.

The face done!

After almost half a year I started working on this figure again. I wasn't satisfied with the face colors and changed the color mixture adding more red and I blended all the transitions. The helmet received the base metal color and now some shades have to be added. Furthermore I worked on the belts and finished the protection flap around the neck. Next step is to weather the chainmail and helmet and continue with the surcoat.
