  1. Thanks! Yeah when I put the hand in place it seemed like the whole arm came to life, very happy Cheers, appreciate it Voozet!
  2. All looking good, glad you managed to sort out the canopy, annoying things like that can really kill your mojo so well done for cracking on
  3. It does, that's a very good effect you've achieved, it really looks like palid dead skin
  4. Yeah that sounds like a simple solution if you know the new primer will cover the marker, think that's what I'd do
  5. Ooo primer! Nice seeing it all one colour. That's a shame about the red marker, is it possible to maybe sand it off then reprime?
  6. Yeah my first and only attempt at fibre got as far as receiving some in the post and a trip to my bench before a loud sigh and a roll of the eyes!
  7. Nice tub and pilot! And good going with the fibre, that'll look impressive when done
  8. cheers Brian Thank you, appreciate the compliment
  9. Oh sweet!! I love the Gan! Looks amazing and I like the sound of the book, a cool project to be a part of
  10. Thanks Voozet, and dont give up! Really glad to hear I inspired you to give it a go, all efforts with sculpting usually start with something bad or at least far from perfect, and that is just the start point. If you check my first sculpture wip post the first attempt at a face/head at the beginning was really awful! You just have to keep practicing and refining what you create and doing lots of research with how to vids. Thank you LM appreciate the kind words, and your interest Okay so another update, in this I'm not really doing a bit for this guy, I'm just sculpting a small hand without worrying about scale for now just to get a feel for it. Found this to be the most daunting bit so far, so watched a few videos and got a sense in my head of how best I'm going to go about it and then this is what I did. Started by rolling a cylinder shape of sculpey and then squashing one end with my fingers to define the palm/fingers area (the head is in the background because at one point I was going to use this to scale the hand but then decided to ease of the pressure and just sculpt and see what happens) IMG_20220115_184805302 by Nick Frost, on Flickr IMG_20220115_184956769 by Nick Frost, on Flickr Then at the same time as pinching it flat I again just used my fingers to narrow and shape what would be the wrist, then rolled a kind of carrot shape to be the thumb and corresponding muscle for it on the palm. IMG_20220115_185509264 by Nick Frost, on Flickr This was blended in at the edges with one of my tools and then I used the silicone brush to do a neat smooth blend. IMG_20220115_185705146 by Nick Frost, on Flickr IMG_20220115_185924123 by Nick Frost, on Flickr Then just using my own hand as a reference I marked out a line where I thought the bottom of the fingers should go and then used a scalpel just to slice through to create them. IMG_20220115_190204884 by Nick Frost, on Flickr Now at this point I'm not worried if the fingers are too long and too even, I'm just trying to get them rounded after being cut square with the scalpel, and am even stretching them a bit to help get a nice rounded finger shape. IMG_20220115_190333448 by Nick Frost, on Flickr IMG_20220115_190709797 by Nick Frost, on Flickr I used my silicone brushes between the fingers to help blend that area, and once I was happy enough with it at this stage I trimmed the finger lengths, again just using my own fingers as a rough guide. Then I rounded the ends that had been cut and pinched the end of the thumb to help shape it. IMG_20220115_190838768 by Nick Frost, on Flickr IMG_20220115_191224652 by Nick Frost, on Flickr IMG_20220115_191446978 by Nick Frost, on Flickr IMG_20220115_191502447 by Nick Frost, on Flickr If you look at your hand, between the bottom of the little finger and you wrist the side of your hand bulges out, so I just pinched the side to help create this shape and just kept working the shapes of the fingers and smoothing everything over till I was happy with how they were looking. IMG_20220115_191635128 by Nick Frost, on Flickr IMG_20220115_192204991 by Nick Frost, on Flickr IMG_20220115_192212174 by Nick Frost, on Flickr Then there is a thinner part of the face of your palm in a kind of curved triangle area from around the thumb muscle and below the bottom of finger joints. So I used and angled loop tool to carve out that part. IMG_20220115_192639708 by Nick Frost, on Flickr IMG_20220115_192748814 by Nick Frost, on Flickr IMG_20220115_192755654 by Nick Frost, on Flickr Then I pinched the ends of the fingers to help give them a better shape, then rolled some little circles to add for knuckles IMG_20220115_193125484 by Nick Frost, on Flickr IMG_20220115_193240874 by Nick Frost, on Flickr These were then blended in the same way as the thumb I added, I blended in between them down from between the finger with my silicone brush to help create the slight indentations of the tendons. IMG_20220115_193343948 by Nick Frost, on Flickr IMG_20220115_193350714 by Nick Frost, on Flickr IMG_20220115_193502659 by Nick Frost, on Flickr IMG_20220115_193613713 by Nick Frost, on Flickr IMG_20220115_194054412 by Nick Frost, on Flickr IMG_20220115_194104301 by Nick Frost, on Flickr And thats where I left it, didn't want to get too carried away with skin detail oranything as its gloved hands I'm doing. IMG_20220115_194410071 by Nick Frost, on Flickr IMG_20220115_194432628 by Nick Frost, on Flickr I wasn't planning on using it but I did check just in case it was the right size, but no its a bit too big. Which is fine, think I'm okay with making another, it'll be good to have as a reference. I have learned a few things from it too, I put the knuckles too far down the fingers, they need to be on the top of the palm area, and I think the thumb is a little fat, but they are easy enough to sort out on a new hand. Really glad I took my time to do some practice, defineitely feel a lot bett about doing the final hands, though next I think I'll finish all the creases on the left arm before doing the left hand. Then once I've done that I'll have to make his pulse rifle before doing the right hand to get the grip on it just right, lots to do still but feels so close to the end now! Thanks for looking, more soon
  11. Made some more progress with this guy over the last few days, time to update! Started by rolling and cutting out a piece of clay for the cuff of his gloves, which I rolled round and then after cutting off the excess blended together. IMG_20220110_185815151 by Nick Frost, on Flickr IMG_20220110_185941182 by Nick Frost, on Flickr IMG_20220110_190138355 by Nick Frost, on Flickr From looking at the miniatures the fire warriors glove have a cut out piece with lines that line up with the armour pad that goes on the top of the palm. So I marked that out and then cut away a piece of the cuff. IMG_20220110_190450363 by Nick Frost, on Flickr IMG_20220110_190916848 by Nick Frost, on Flickr IMG_20220110_191118941 by Nick Frost, on Flickr On the miniature there was a couple of raised little dots on the back of the cuff (who knows what they are supposed to be at that scale!) but I decided to put a couple of details in with the my ball stylus, so marked out the position then carefully pressed in the stylus to create two dips. IMG_20220111_184017084 by Nick Frost, on Flickr IMG_20220111_184420944 by Nick Frost, on Flickr Then I gave the whole thing a seam detail IMG_20220111_185006266 by Nick Frost, on Flickr IMG_20220111_185221082 by Nick Frost, on Flickr Once that was done I could add the creases to the forearm IMG_20220111_185526407 by Nick Frost, on Flickr IMG_20220111_190817108 by Nick Frost, on Flickr While blending them in I also added the seam detail to the bit I missed on the cuff, and carried on the creases on the other side. IMG_20220111_191507508 by Nick Frost, on Flickr IMG_20220112_190014372 by Nick Frost, on Flickr IMG_20220112_190928140 by Nick Frost, on Flickr IMG_20220112_191505371 by Nick Frost, on Flickr I noticed the tops of the wrists are a bit rounded on the end without a sharp edge, which is what I really want for when I add the hands, so I rolled a thin sausage of clay and placed it around the edge to be able to blend and create a crisper edge. IMG_20220112_191608926 by Nick Frost, on Flickr IMG_20220112_191731295 by Nick Frost, on Flickr IMG_20220112_192026970 by Nick Frost, on Flickr IMG_20220112_192226360 by Nick Frost, on Flickr Then it was time to do the one on the other side, first thing I had to do was cut off a section of his arm as after checking it was slightly longer than the other side, then I followed the same steps as above. IMG_20220114_190124897 by Nick Frost, on Flickr IMG_20220114_190128484 by Nick Frost, on Flickr IMG_20220114_190441915 by Nick Frost, on Flickr IMG_20220114_190725750 by Nick Frost, on Flickr IMG_20220114_190927759 by Nick Frost, on Flickr IMG_20220114_191334934 by Nick Frost, on Flickr IMG_20220114_191650925 by Nick Frost, on Flickr IMG_20220114_194011259 by Nick Frost, on Flickr IMG_20220114_194310365 by Nick Frost, on Flickr And there we are, two cuffs done! Now I need to add the creases to the left arm, not going to go too crazy on the upper arm as most of it will be covered by the large arm shoulder they have on that side. Before I do that though, in the next update I'm going to practice sculpting a hand in preparation for doing his to get a feel for it, sculpting hands is a first for me and its a little daunting but I am doing lots of research and checking out some videos so I'm looking forward to having a go. Thanks for looking, more soon
