Some newer pictures of the Trumpeter.
As you maybe have noticed,my basic sculpting approach is 90% carving work.
I first form a big blop of putty(as seen on the turnback) and then start to carve the details out.
If I carve too much,I just add putty again and carve.Working like this allows me to easily represent every detail I want.But there are also some details,which aren't good to carve like rough textures,bearskin etc.
I hope you like it.Please note that this figure is NOT any kind of ready..It is still a very very basic shape with a lot of details to sculpt or redo.
and the back:
Hope you enjoy it:)
