I feel I've come a long way so far, and yet still there is a long path ahead of us. So stick around, it's sure to get interesting (I hope). I've been at it for a while and though it's easy to get discouraged I'll keep working and learning and hope that something will come of it some day. You might not know this but each "step" or session of Green Stuff sculpting is incredibly intensive and usually takes at least an hour and most time two hours. I can not be interrupted or the Green Stuff will cure so I mostly work at night when my attention won't be disturbed.
I'll try to keep in mind that some folks might just be tuning in and give out a little bit of basic info about each thing. It helps to have the right keywords pop up now and again also.
Here are some pictures of the things that I'm working on:
Five of Five is shaping up. He's a 1:72 modern German Bundeswehr infantryman. He's kneeling. When I finish the G3 rifle he gets a G36 with grenade launcher.
Mystery dude also made a lot of progress. Some of you should be able to guess his faction by now. Also in the scale of 1:72.
This is the armature for a sketch of an orbital drop trooper. The scale is 1:35 and BOY IS THAT HUGE. It's seriously big. I haven't filled in the armature completely yet because every time I mix the material and think "well, this is a lot of Green Stuff, it's sure to suffice" and then it doesn't because the sculpt is really really big.
G3 has also received a boost. The macro photo reveals that the surface is slightly uneven. I might take a bit of sanding paper to it. Maybe it's too small to matter. In any case, here you can see the hand is sculpted directly on the gun. The other one will be sculpted like this also, supporting the magazine. The result is already a lot better than what I've been able to achieve in the former method.
