Napoleonic Trumpeter 1/16

Hello Guys,

I'm figuring out the final pose:)
Trumpet is just a rough mock up and was just fixed with a bit of blue tac.
His thumb is also missing right now;)


hope you like it:)

Napoleonic Trumpeter 1/16


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:)
