Ebroin shows us his sculpting techniques and process for Young Miniatures 1/10 Bust

Original Thread here: http://www.planetfigure.com/threads/german-feldgendarmerie-wwii-by-ebroin.39601/

Hello, I am Ebroin who sculpted some busts for Young Miniatures.

This is general steps I use, usually while I sculpting ordinary busts. I am not a native English speaker, and I am sorry for my bad vocabulary. Sound like Yoda, I will, sometime. =) This work, German Feldgendarmerie WW2, I sculpted in January 2010, and published in February.

I usually start with accessories like weapons, gas masks, holsters, bags, helmets and etc. I sculpted whole Kar 98k, even if it was cut and only the front part was included. So I can use it when I need it later on.

Then I sculped this face and make the gas mask can.

The face is made out of firm grey sculpy.

I made a some kinda skeleton to set pose.

Pose was not so good.

I asked Young's advice, and ended up with this pose.

He was too big and large. I had to carve alot to make him right size.

To me, it is very hard to make human body right.

I have to check it all the time.

Then I put some clothes.

When sculpting clothes, I generally start from inner to outer, from bottom to top, and from tight to loose.

And for wrinkles in the clothes, I carefully observed characteristics from the real coats and tried to shape wrinkes as it was.

And last, minor changes done by Young Song, and painted by Sang Eon Lee.
