New Year, New Sculpting Log
« on: May 11, 2018, 01:17:16 AM »
Since my initial posts a while ago, I have been working on sharpening my sculpting skills by making all sorts of NPC’s to go along with my hive city terrain project. Thought I’d post up some WIP’s to get some feedback. Tips from more advanced sculptors would be greatly appreciated.

The last three sculpts are meant to be servitors that will become part of the terrain, so I was less concerned with detail there.

Those pictures are all hidden from my end - I don't know if you can see them, but I certainly can't.

Wow.  All look like they're leaping out of artwork from a rulebook.  Great stuff.

they look awesome. the face on the first one is particularly wonderful. and the aesthetic on them are great, though i wonder whether the feet are a tad small?

Brilliant.
As Van Helser said, the almost-cartoony proportions are fantastic, as are the poses and Blanche-y gubz.
How do they scale against 'official' sculpts?

Exactly my thinking.
This is some very good sculpting work.

Finished the hive city worker and did a bit of work on the chap with the scroll and gas mask. I realize that the pose on the first guy seems a bit iffy but this is mainly becaise of the angle the photo was taken from. Still, this is a good learning experience: with the other figure I tried my best to make figure look interesting and anatomically correct from every possible angle, which is hard, but I think it helps to “sell” a mini to the viewer. I also finished two servo-skulls I had started working on a while ago. I received a bag of 200 bases in the mail today so I built some bases for them that will hopefully blend well with my hive city terrain project.







I had a lot of a fun adding details with a bag of small gears I bought from greenstuffworld.



Comments and critique appreciated as always!

I am consistently awed by the exceptional sculpting work on display on the 'clave. the face on the first one is just fantastic. Do you plan to cast these up or just have them as one-of-a-kind sculpts?
