    Hello all,

    Here is a small update

    The punk has got hair now and a pair of boots
    [IMG] [IMG]

    I didn’t work much on the Guides vignette, just a little refining of the basic anatomy. I think they are ready for sculpting clothes and details now.
    [IMG] [IMG]

    Both projects are a bit delayed trough a new project I started, but actually is it an old project I started in 2007. It is called Blindfold and Alone, based on the poem of Rudyard Kipling about the executed British soldiers in World War One.

    The Coward
    I could not look on Death,
    which being known,
    Men led me to him,
    blindfold and alone

    There is a book with the same title and can recommend it.

    This is actually the third version of the figure. The first one I wasn’t satisfied enough. The second got burned in the oven while drying some putty…
    After reading some passages from the book last week I decided to start with a new version.

    Excuses for the not so good pics..

    Kind regards,
    Robert Jan
