    this is so freakin' cool!!!! i really like all the work you've done. william paquet did a tutorial on baking on another site i frequent and the color that you see on the torso is really a good thing it means that the clay has achieved a very hard nature. keep up the good work!

    You're Not Dead!!

    Was wondering whatever happened to you. No posts in a long time. It is looking great. It is understandable that this piece is taking awhile. Keep up the incredible work!

    Cool idea, and its looking pretty nice. I would however like to see a change in the chief's stance in the final. Having both hands up there looks incredibly awkward. Having one hand push the grenade in while the other stabs him with an energy sword is so much more interesting and dynamic. But your certainly not limited to that.

    the plan is to have MC's left arm pushing back the brute's right arm, with the chieftan sort of trying to grab MC to get him off. are you confusing the brute's shoulder for the chief's left arm in the original sketch?

    the idea was for the stiff-arm, and MC sort of sneaking in for the grenade stick, but now you have me thinking about other possibilities. hmmmm.... well i will certainly have a fair bit of time to think about it before i begin working on him.

    I think you are starting too early on the detail and need to work on getting the structure down. The pecs look off.

    Wow, I'm an avid player of the game and this looks like it's coming along wonderfully. Keep it up and please update us!

    Creativity is allowing yourself to make mistakes. Art is knowing which ones to keep.

    What do you think about Halo 3:Recon? It looks like its shaping up to be a hell of an expansion. Features ODST...

    Yes, I did miss read the original image, so feel free to forget my previous, and incorrect interpretation.

    As for Halo 3:Recon, fingers crossed. But should only be around thirty bucks, so thats a plus.

    Skewed perspective?

    YRAT,

    I have been staring at the piece and I think Bai Fan is just seeing one of those last pics that may be presenting a weird angle. I see what he is saying based on that pic alone, but don't think it is problem in the other shots. I think it is just a perspective issue in that shot. Having a lot of experience in shooting sculpts, there are always angles that don't work as the camera sees it a bit differently than our own eyes in reality. You certainly look like you know what you are doing. Rock on...and don't disappear for so long. We want updates!

    Thanks for checking out my site, www.kingjovis.com and the kind words. I should get some posts of my work up here. Maybe this weekend. Make sure you register on kingjovis.com as I will be adding finished images that will be viewable by subscribers only. Don't worry...it's free...just want to have some images password protected.

    -J

    Say what you will, I still think they look off. Especially with a lack of a visual clavicle in front of the sternomastoid.

    I stick with my comment that it is too early to worry about the pattern on the shirt, especially when most of that shirt is going to be covered by armor (as per the sketch).

    Take what you will, leave the rest.
