    The first part of the shirts are next laid on, I find it eaiser to sculpt the shirts in sections rather than trying to do the whole shirt in one sitting. Notice the drapery of the cloth, taking into consideration the weight of the fabric and its properties in relation to the figures pose and motion.

    On figure no. 2 I have also laid on the right side of the shirt, I have also made the indent for the position of the ammo pouch which will come later. Some sculptors actually choose to carve out the spot for the ammo pouch after the putty has dried, both techniques work equally well.

    Now I have the basic shirts all finished, It's time to do the sleeves and all of the details, collars, pockets, flaps, buttons, etc. For the recesses for all of the weab gear, I will carve the imprints in the hardened putty. I usually do this when it's still wet, but I like to try different techniques from time to time.

    Great work Bill. I like the animation. I find it interesting that you haven't done the faces yet. Do you like to save faces for last? Do these come apart as they are, or will they have to be cut up?

    Thanks John,

    Yes they pop apart in all of the neccessary places. If I did not have to engineer them for casting, I could finish them much faster. I like to wait until I get the pose and animation done, and then sculpt the faces to accentuate the overall feeling of the pose.

    Sometimes, if i sculp a head just for the fun of it, It will dictate the figures pose by it's look/feel/expression. So I guess I do it both ways.

    That is excellent Bill, both the animation and drapery (y) What process do you use to keep the putty from sticking where the pieces come apart, what about the heads, will they remain attached to the torso ?
