    Coming along very nicely! The eyes are looking very expressive.

    maddmaestro and Jiangzu - thank you for all your support, guys. I'm really happy that you think he has character and expression - that's the most important thing to me

    Right - I've started with the little pig-critter dude. I think it will help me to get their interaction right if I start on him now.
    Sorry for all the pics - I hope I'm not spamming, but I have found that the photos really help me catch problems that I cant see for myself early on. Also, I can stare at them when I'm at work and ponder the sculpt a bit when I have time
    I noticed the thighs are looking a spare there - Please feel free to comment on and problems you spot, guys..later

    You're not spamming us with pictures, I enjoy watching the progress of other people's work.

    The expression of the critter he's holding is priceless.

    Actually now that you mention it, the calf of the right leg looks a little disproportionatly bulky compared to the knee and your red line added to the thigh.

    Aiszkur - thanks for all the encouragement
    Jiangzu - thanks - I have actually noticed that the position of his belt on his lower stomach may be too low - giving the false impression that his torso is too long - I'm thinking of just moving his belt higher - like in the drawing.

    OK - next up - my reference photos for the sashes around his elbow and on his left arm.
    I had to re-do the sash on his left elbow completely, after I took the reference shots - it just wasn't good enough. But it's an old lesson: USE REFERENCE!!! Looks better now.
    The cape, I have just started with. I'm just busy with the tedious task of filling in the wire mesh. Thanks to DreamSorcerer for showing us how to do it! (I don't have a heat gun so I'll have to pre-bake it in the oven)
    Once I have finished blocking in and posing all the capes and sashes and loin cloths and other pieces of clothing, I will be able to really get down to the detailing - can't wait!

    Reference is indeed a magickal thing!

    He's really starting to come to life now. Looking at him, you've done a really good job with the hands...hands can be a tough thing to sculpt.
    (And detail can be one of the most fun yet most agonizing parts of sculpting!)

    Jiangzu - Thanks - funny I really struggle to draw hands - but his left hand went quite easily...the right hand is only blocked out - we'll see how that one goes

    OK - here's the baked cape - and it took me all day to lay down clay on both sides and scrape it down! I wont lie - the cape was a mission! The wire mesh armature I made for the cape kinda had a mind of it's own, so the cape isn't posed exactly like I imagined it in the drawing - but I'm relatively happy with it... It comes off (with some serious effort) so that I can work on the figure unhindered and so that I can paint the back of the figure later...
    Also adjusted the height of his belt..

    Here's an idea for the little pig/raccoon thing I don't know how far you are with him but why not add more gravity to his stomach, like its sagging or something.
    That cape is so nicely done. I love the folds by his arm! totally gifted dude!

    Hey, I am loving this piece, his armor is bad-assed, totally. His stance really gets me too! Its so comic book looking, so arrogant, so self assured. I think you are nailing this one. Good job !
