    Hai folks
    I really enjoy the sculpting part of the hobby and looking for a subject for my third bust I was pending through my pics on the PC. Suddenly I saw a pic of my youngest daughter taken a couple of years ago on school and I gave it a try to copy it.
    It's not 100% accurate, but so far I'm satisfied about the result, like the other busts I've learned some new things and have some more experience.
    All is made wit Fimo soft, but now I have more courage, I'll try Magic sculpt or Miliput

    Well, no one will read too long so I put the pics

    At first the original








    Maybe, I willl give the bust a clearcoat to made it smooth

    I know, the parts under both eyes are to big, but I'm a bit scared to ruine my work wit corrected it, I've tried to sand it, but I'm afraid to hit the eyes aswell, so I let it be

    Bert... I know what you're saying in your last sentence...been there many times myself. Every time you look at it, it will look back and say to you "I like it and am proud of it, but know that area under the eyes is is wrong.
    All I can tell you is "no guts, no glory"...

    Twomoons, yep, you're right. I told it often to other, so I must listen to my own advice aswell. Ok, saanndingpaaappper..........where are you?

    Great start Bert.
    You should consider the look of the eyes. under the eyes it looks to bulky.

  6. Bert Takken New Member

    If you means by bulky (i'm sorry guys, it would be a bit dutch) de hoekige of de te grote wallen onder de ogen you're right, I have do some work on it and it looks much better

    Ja Bert, dat bedoel ik.
    En het negerlipje aan de bovenkant ook minder.
