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.

hi mate i am still following this sculpt and enjoying watching it progress. sometimes its better to take a longer time sculptinga figure as it allows you to see more things that are not correct, the replacment belt looks better.
MS and Duro are just great for fine work like the epalette as you can get some nice detail into it.

All the best and a Merry Christmas mate,

Thanks Steve! You´re right everytime I look again at the figure I see something else I want to change. But I wish I could spend some more time to be able to finish the figure.
The combination of MS and duro works indeed very nice for detail work because only MS is sometimes to soft.

Also a Merry Xmas to you and all the best for 2010.
