Outlook 2012

Now with 2011 left behind it's time to look at the projects I'm going to work on in 2012. I'm planning to dedicate some more time to modeling and hopefully this will result in some more output this year. The last years it was always a bit problematic to find the time for modeling due to other important obligations I have like family, work and other hobby's. 
The first new project for this year is together with Fernando Ruiz. I will be sculpting an he will take care of the paintwork. When the project is finished we will publish the pictures, before that no progress pictures will be shown. I'm really looking forward to get the project going.

Another small project that I started during Christmas is sculpting a face. Until now I never sculpted a face myself and when I found the manual from Alan Ball I thought it would be a good exercise.
The carved the basic shape and now I have to sculpt the eyes, redo the mouth and refine some places.
I don't know if I'm ever going to use this face for a figure but still it's a good exercise. 

I also started another sculpting project recently which will be a fantasy subject, but for the moment this doesn't have a high priority. And then there are the projects I already started. This year I planning to finish sculpting and painting Joseph Steck. Hopefully get some more work done on the crusader vignette and finish some painting projects including the 1/72 projects. Next to this I'm planning to visit some shows the first will be Ransart this weekend. I hope to see you there.
