    Here are several shots of what has been going on in my studio this week.

    In trying to keep the sleeves very full like a shell jacket, I think I have gone too far.

    This is the one-off commission I've had going for a while. Here's the groundwork and the figure in setting before painting.

    Shame it's a one-off, I really like that bottom one. Please keep us posted mate.

    Looks like I screwed up the attachments. This is not a one-off. It's intended for Drummerboy miniatures, pending delivery, approval and casting. It's the same figure with the option of either head. I'll add the other pics here in a bit. That's the one-off.

    John, Pesonally speaking I think the sleeves are right on. All too often people do a "tube like" sleeve, This might worl for a sack coat but not for shell and frock coats for the most part.

    I like your other Confederate too. The few pieces of equipment laying around are great eye candy.~Gary

    Hi John,

    I see regulary some people showing us their sculpt wip.

    What I can say about yours, is that as soon as I saw it my hand, brushes and oil paint are shaking. :lol:

    I mean that I really feel like to paint theses figures.
    It's not usual that I love sculpted figure at the first look.

    Well done, any of the pics are great :)

    I think you're on to something Larry. How's Chagrin Falls? I love that town.

    Thanks all for your compliments. I've done a few ACW figures lately and as a result have come to really enjoy studying the garments worn during the period. It may be a new comfort zone for me.

    Ho Hum. Just another perfect day in paradise. Well it's been paradise since the rain stopped and the creeks went down.

    Marvelous sculpting John! You guys are doing such nice things with Sculpey. I gotta try to do a full figure!

    Larry - I laughed out loud when I read your comment! And a-way we go! :lol:
    Maybe John should follow this up with another figure in the pose of "Some day Alice...some day - - right to the moon!"

    All the best,
    Dan

    Hey, thanks Dan. I'm surprised noone's done the Honeymooners as a fig set. Maybe Andrea.....

    I am an epoxy man though. I can't get my head around the Sculpey medium.
