    I work as a professional sculptor, but mainly really small stuff for the wargames market; a lot of 1/100th and 1/300th figures mostly.
    I fancied making something bigger just for a bit of fun, so I'm having a go at sculpting a 1/9th bust of a 5th century Frankish infantryman. Very early WIP pics here - hopefully he'll improve as he goes...
    With any luck I'll get some more done on him today - if I do, I'll try and take some decent pics tonight with my wife's camera; it's a lot better than mine!

    Cheers,
    Michael

    Thanks!

    Added a fur jerkin over lunchtime - now have to decide whether to get back to work on paid jobs, or carry on with this instead; I really want to add the cloak and hair today if I can....

    Well instead of getting on with work like I was supposed to, I just carried on with sculpting the bust this afternoon... got to admit, sculpting in a larger scale is addictive!

    I've got the body and head pretty much finished - just the hand and francisca axe to do now. Not sure when I'll get round to it though - I really must do some actual work tomorrow....
