I've neatened up the inside of the index fingers:

I can only see a small amount more progress between now and New Year as I'll be visiting family over Christmas.


you could have just made a mold of Rev's hand you know :roll: :wink:

In the absence of my sculpting gear I started a Puppet Monster illustration over Christmas. It's still a WIP and what you see here utilises a sepia and "antique photo" filter (the original is in colour). I hope to have the fnished piece printed to include with casts of the sculpt. I've been inspired this year by the ranges from Kingdom Death, Smart Max and Infamy so a piece of accompanying artwork just felt right :-)

It's been a while but I have finally resumed work on the Puppet Monster. Now that I'm getting used to working with a Green Stuff/MagicSculp mix I have more confidence to work on the large smooth areas such as the torso. The plan is to have him ready to cast in October!

Last nights progress: concertina neck sculpted using Procreate. This took approximately an hour and went better than I anticipated. I expected at least two sittings of hard graft so I'm pleased that I can now get on with other parts of the sculpt.

I can't finish the cuffs (or sculpt the frills on the ankles) until I have removed the arms, but I can't do that until I have sculpted his collar! I can't sculpt his collar until I have finished the head (which needs to be sculpted with the arms still in place, to check composition...). I couldn't continue the head until I had sculpted the neck, so it looks like the ball is now well and truly rolling! The end is in sight!

I can't wait to get round to trialing my new jewellery saw to butcher his arms!!
