Re: [1listSculpting] New Sculpt, half-orc pirate alchemist
- Thanks for the comments Todd, much appreciated. The grenade/hand seam
looked much better without my optivisor but you are quite correct. I
built the grenade onto the end of the armature to anchor it and built
the hand around it. I'll spend more time getting better definition next
time. My caster pointed out that the hat brim will probably be pushed
back against the head in mastering which is ok as they often looked like
that but if I can reinforce it a bit I'd rather minimise the shift.
As for the chain shirt - that's roleplaying for you. I intended the
figure to be in a chain shirt with a simple bandana but as the game
developed he picked up a magic hat and posh overcoat. No self respecting
half orc is going to pass up some tasteless bling so I had to sculpt
them on. Since then he has won some daft eagle headed epaulettes. It
isn't a commercial figure but I have to draw the line somewhere!
