    I'd say that's a pretty impressive start Robert! Face and anatomy look good and the details are coming along well.

    Look forward to more,

    Nice Robert! My tastes would probably go toward the hanging flag as it would provide an opportunity for some nice free hand painting. On the other hand you could keep the flag and position the decapitated head at her feet. A symbolic victory pose...

    Question? Is the chainmail made up of rolled wire/solder glued to the figure? It looks good.

    Good work,
    Ken

    Yes, chainmail is solder wire 0.2 mm. If there is 0.1 mm it would be better I guess , but I'm satisfied how it looks. Good tip on flag and head.. You give me something to think about :)

    Robert,
    I like it a lot. Love the dragons head and the banner idea is better than a flag. The banner is also easier to paint as it has less folds and only one side. Bravo!

    Well done,
    Ken

    Hello Robert,
    You didn't start with a basic anatomical figure so you're on your own with pure guesswork because you are working down instead of up.....So the best advise I can give you is to pack a bra with padding and put it on under a shirt you feel comfortable with and pose in front of a mirror and take some selfies or have a friend take some pics so you can see how the folds work in relation to body movement ( I know the bra thing sounds funny but it was the best way I knew to describe it)....Same with the pants.....Looks quite good though what you have done...Have fun........
    Wayne
    P.S.......There are no rules.......only experience

    Hey, Robert.
    First of all, I would make more of feet in your place. They are now such blocks, you need to highlight the anatomy, for example, to sharpen the thighs, especially the forehead (from the profile to be equal), to stay in the knee. Next, you need to realize that your thigh is over the shin:

    Regarding drapery, this is a complex topic. In a simple way, when the limbs are stretched and resting, where the bends often (in the knee, ankle or elbow), the organs are created in the chessboard pattern (slightly irregular).

    When the hand is bent, then the wrinkles of the cloth radiate from the outside of the bend (elbow, knee)

    or from the place where the cloth is already sharpened (in the armpit).

    In the inner side of the bend, the cloth is shuffled into the organs.

    But it is very unified. It wants experience and practice. It is best to dress somebody in similar clothes and take a picture of him and try to imitate it.

    I would still play with face, soften the features


    I wish good luck in the next job :)

    Cheers Borek

    Wow, this is epic scene :). Nice work. Just more attention to detail. For this scale, it is necessary...

    Cheers Borek :)
