    Looking great Rob! i may agree with the head position now, it depends on the story you want to tell.

    BTW, did you recieve my pm?

    Cheers folks!

    Want to get him to look like he's nervous as he looks over the hedge.....fighting was nasty and initially these guys had no tactics on how to deal with it.
    His head needs to vanish into his neck a bit.....

    Daniel; I've got it!

    Well done Rob. It looks like you changed the viewing angle just right. The head change is perfect. (y)

    Looking GREAT so far Rob! I think you've got it!!

    I feel the composition forces the viewer to look at the whole figure. Well done :)

    GOOD JOB,Rob (y) (y) ;the new pose looks AWESOME !! Quang is certainly very perceptive when it comes to figure positioning and composition.I'm sure glad that he is back on the "planet" ! Looking forward to the next step,Rob; the gaiters look very good too ! Cheers.

    Good job on the repositioning! A sideways view - as you have him in your first picture with the repositioned head - provides just enough of a view of the GI's face. It would also reinforce the GI's perspective - that of viewing some enemy at a distance. Funny, but I was thinking a round base for the groundwork would work too. However, this may limit the top edge of the hedgerow since, afterall, you would be dealing with a round base.

    Ah, decisions decisions ...

    Hi Rob
    Good job.I liked him wathing his back and I like the repositioning too.
    I'm for the round base.
    Best regards

    Looks good, Rob!

    I've posted some minor mods which I think would add to the sculpt


    The base should be chosen very carefully as it would make or break your composition.

    In this particular case, I think a square/rectangular base is more adequate, contrary to Pete and Jaume's opinions (sorry, guys ;)).

    Here's why. It's easier to compose within a square/rectangular shape (like the page of a book) and therefore direct the viewer's eye accordingly to the designer's wish. You can 'manipulate' the viewer and make him see what you want him to see, in the precise order you have decided. This is the very purpose of composition.

    That would be more difficult (and in certain cases impossible) with a circular base because there's simply no start and no finish.

    Just my point of view, of course. :)

    I has been trying to make the armature like you buddy, but I can print it in the right size..... :( any advise??

    btw, really good job , I love to see the process that bring to the life a figure!! :)

    It does look much better that way. I would have to agree with Quang on the rectabgualr base, you have more control over the viewing. I think also with a round base ou'd have to add more groundwork and the focus would be lost.
