  1. Please find below some picks of one of my latest finished pieces:

     

    Critiques and comments as you all see fit.

     

    Here's a link to a site with all the images on, my website seems to be a little up and down at the moment, sorry folks:

    My Displaced Miniature Page

     

     

    (i'll likely paste a few other greens up shortly as well, but figure its better to start a post for each piece)

  3. - her breasts are huge. Too big IMO - each one of them is almost the size of her head.

    - the armor at her knees is too small, particularly for the size of her hips

    - the cape doesn't seem to sit right between her body and her left arm

    - you've already mentioned the face, but in the photo it looks a little lopsided as well.

    - it's hard to tell from the photgraph and because you haven't finished them, but the proportions of the arms look like they might need adjusting.

    Again, I'm impressed by your growing skill level, and I wish I could do even half this good though.

    I Concur, if it was modeled on my wife I wouldn't fault you alas if you walk don the street it would relate to very few women.

    I'd add they seem a little low to me.

    Kristof65 - A good critique.

     

    Zazeem - Keep up the good work (some nice looking stuff on your site).


  4. My only complaint is with the face. It seems very rough and lacking eye details. Might be the photos though.

     

     

    No your right they are empty sockets ATM, she also needs a brushing down and some polishing up. But all making good stuff.

     

    I am really unsure as to how best to split her for making a mold.

     

    It may be better for me to finish her fully. And ask a mold maker. But what I don't want to do is finish her and have... well it would have been better if you had built it like.... as the first thing that I get told.


  5. OK

     

    I've not done a multi part before so would like some advice on how best to archive that.

     

    Since the photo's have been taken I have reworked the hair/extrusions so they are more practical for casting.

     

    I've re-done the legs to be slightly smaller. (Yes I've done 8 of them)

     

    The net (left hand) I will replace with an open hand for end users to use their own net or a shield - I think thats the best solution for that.

     

    She's in kit form now! so before I put her together add the muscle and bulk and dress her up.

     

    (wow sound like loads left to do when i put it like that)

     

    I'd like any advice off anyone with experience on what I need to consider to make a good multi piece.

  6. So total time from idea to finish: 35 hours or so. Total time for this actual sculpt: two hours...

     

    Reminds me of the sign writer painting the side of a van story.

     

    A plumber calls a sign writer out to put his logo and contact details on the side of his new van.

     

    After 2 hours the sign writer said to the plumber that will be £150 please.

     

    The plumber screams £150 for 2 hrs work.... How do you come to that conclusion.

     

    The sign writer replies, but its taken me 20 years to learn how to do it in 2 hours.

     

    Anyway people often don't see the unseen work that goes in to any craftsmanship.

     

    Don't want to turn your post into a pricing debate mind...

     

    So back to the sculpt it's a really nice shape and form, especially the legs, can tell you've most likely been to a life drawing class or 2.

     

    It kinda reminds me of Kev from hasslefree's full figured woman.

     

    And that got quite a few good reviews, so thumbs up from me.
