    Dude, check your proportions. The limbs seem too long & slim.

    Hey Pete,thanks for the feedback;I really appreciate it (y) ! Funny thing is,on re-checking,the measurements all come out OK :eek: .Maybe it's the angle of the photography that made the limbs look a little long and slim. Thanks for pointing it out anyway.Cheers !

    I'm not talking about actual lengths, but of the overall "size" of the limbs. Don't you think the limbs looks too slim? Whereas the torsos & abdomens look too big? Don't always rely on "numbers" but on the Mark I eyeball.

    P.S - I can get excommunicated for that last remark (re: "don't always rely on numbers").

    Hi Pete :) ! Thanks for the second post;I really appreciate it. I had a critical look at the overall composition of the figures and they still looked alright to me.Looking at the photos and the actual model,I realised that the camera angle may have elongated the limbs a bit,giving the impression of their being "thinner" then the rest of the model. However,I will definitely keep your comments in mind when I start on my next sculpting project. Thanks anyway.Cheers !

    Hi Daniel :lol: ! Thanks for the encouraging comments;I really appreciate them :) !The basic ground shape was first formed from some florist polystyrene foam(the kind used for flower arrangements).The groundwork material is a mixture of Celluclay,various earth-tone weathering powders(kind of similar to MIG weathering powders) and LOTS of white glue. After thoughly mixing the mixture,it is spread onto the surface of the foam,covering everything.Within a short time,the mixture will begin to harden. Working on small sections at a time,more white glue is placed on the groundwork and small pebbles,sand,Hudson and Allen forest litter and the debris from a packet of dried flower arrangement ferns are glued on,and tamped down with your fingers. The tree stump is from Amand P.Bayardi and the barbed wire from Hudson and Allen.HTH. I will post more once the painting is done. Thanks and cheers !
