So I posted these sketches for new sculpt ideas to my social medias and got some good feedback. Everyone seemed to be a big fan of the Raccoon and since he was one of my favorites from the pack also, I decided to sculpt him!

I didn't have my phone with me to get pics of the initial wire frame and GS layer but I went over that with some Fimo clay and baked an underlying structure now and I'll start layering my Primo on top of that.

Ok, idk if my new clay is way softer than I'm used to or I'm just doing details much smaller than usual but this took forever to get all the texture right. The eyes are a base layer so I can build lids and facial structure around that. The recesses in the sides of the pants will be where I add in criss cross laces.

The wire armature for his front arm was WAY lower than it should've been so I'm hoping I can just bend the wire back up to it's correct position and sculpt on top of that. If not I'll have to clip it off and drill another hole where it should've been.

Update: added criss cross laces and eyelets to the pants. Going to add in some wrinkle suggestions around the eyelets to give it a tight leather look.

Finished up the pants by adding wrinkles around each eyelet and across the bum. Roughed out the head shapes today. The face needs refinement but this was all I could do without magnifiers and my head hurts too much today to wear those. I will add the nose to the snout after baking, probably at the same time as adding the ears. I want to leave the hands and feet till next to last so I can balance any wonky composition concerns by sizing those to suit my needs.

He's looking awesome!!

 

I love your sketches at the top too. I have no experience with that drawing out that part of "character creation." I love creating the emotional and physical parts, but I struggle with translating that into their clothing, stance, and accessories. So I'm super excited for your ReaperCon class. <3 I have a huge project I want to do, but I'm waiting until after I learn to do it haha!

Wow.  Very clean lines. I like his expression.

Thanks! That was a super important component of the design for me so I'm glad that it's working!

Added ears and nose also added GS to the arm wires. The next clay layers will be to work on the vest/chest area then probably belts/buckles, arms/weapons, feet, then tail. Still a lot to do but making good progress I think.

Looking good.  So does this mean you aren't going to have to redo the armature for that left arm?

I'm pretty sure it's gonna be fine. After adding the GS the bulk shouldn't be excessive. I'll have to be contentious of managing my clay thicknesses to make sure it looks even with the other side.

Starting on the vest. In my original concept art I just did some cross marks on the vest like it was quilted or something but since I've already done that texture on another figure I wanted to do this one as a more simple leather which would theoretically let the character be more agile in his movements. 

I've marked all the seams, the big folds, collar, and holes for laces. I had put the little cap sleeves on but I removed them in order to layer them over the arms instead of trying to shove clay into the sleeves. 

I'm happy with the progress so far, I had to put it aside for a couple of days to work on other commission work so, it feels good to get back to it.

Finished polishing up the folds (thanks to my stepson for modeling for me) and added the stitches and buckles to the vest.

      So one of my players bought a hero forge 3d model and then printed it. I've based it, primed it and now I'm painting it in the color combination he requested. I have just finished the base layer (the goggles will be gold with green glass)
      Hope he's happy when it's finished :D

      Hello everyone, I plan on crafting some blights out of polymer clay. Today I made the armatures out of copper wire and glue and pined them to some old 20mm bases. I plan on using fimo air polymer clay, decorative sand (maybe some rocks too), and a variety of dried tea leaves and spices. Then I will prime them using cheap spray paint and paint them using cheap acrylic paint. I hope they turn out nice. All kinds of tips, suggestion or criticism are welcome :D

      About
      The siblings  of conflict are here!
      Attack! this interstellar army of hardboiled girls are ready to conquer your tabletop! Assemble unique squads with powerful weapons, led by brave leaders. They're cute, they're rowdy, they are the siblings of conflict!
      STRETCH GOALS
      We're planning amazing, unique hero characters, and more! Surprises await! New Stretch Goals will appear as the campaign advances!
      Chibi miniatures!
      Chibis are adorable characters that have lately have made a splash in the boardgaming and miniature community with games such as Super Dungeon Explore, Arcadia Quest, Ninja All-Stars and many others. They're also featured in collectible figurines and in other geeky paraphernalia.
      This is the NINTH Chibi KickStarter run by Impact! Miniatures and Impact! is partnering with  Märchen to bring you some incredible, new Siblings of Conflict chibi miniatures along with sci-fi allies & enemies for them to combat!
      The funding goal will pay for the sculpting & 3-D printing of the miniatures.
       The Miniatures    
      ALL miniatures in this KickStarter are provided unpainted. Unless otherwise stated after the name of the miniature, all miniatures offered with this KickStarter will be high quality 3-D prints done on a top end 25 to 50 micron printer (you should not see print lines after priming and paint).   As stretch goals are reached we will unlock additional sculpts.  The miniatures will require light clean up, being primed before painted and might need some assembly (although we will do our best to keep the figures with as few pieces as possible).  
      You can use your reward dollars to get any of the miniatures in the listing above.
      Miniature Quality
      While many of the miniatures in this KickStarter will be 3-D printed, the quality will be a very high level since they are 25 to 50 micron 3-D SLA prints which are very different than ABS prints.   Below is an extreme close -up example of a printed figure and how it shows no print lines when primed and painted (with no other prep work).    Many thanks to Yeji Kim for her painting of Vanguard Leader Anna (top row) and Jason Turner for the painting of Vanguard Leader Anna and Vanguard Trooper #3 (bottom row)!
      Shipping   
      Shipping will be charged in the pledge manager after the project.  At this time we are estimating $5 for US backers, $13 for Canada and $17 for Rest of World. Shipping of the KickStarter will be EU Friendly and should not incur any customs fees.

      Here's MidKnight Heroes' Damien.  I painted him in the color scheme of the Dark Palladin artwork, so that he could find a place in Chibi Kingdom Death.

      I realized while I was painting him that I'm going to need to pick up a few more of him for conversions.  He really does seem like a good starting place for several concepts I have going.

      Hi, ok so it seem having a long "put everything here" thread is not easy for moderator, I am opening a dedicated one for those WH40K orcs :)
       
      I am done with the skin pass, obviously more details to go in with brush.
      going next to get the other parts base coated I think , so I can get an overview of the overall look and color for those guys ( for now it look very green xD )
