    thank you Martin,

    I must thank you in a mutual way, I finally found a good place to let equalminded people critisize our work.
    The only headstart I had was the fact I am familiar with facial expressions due to my cartoonarts, was also my drawback.

    There are some very good people here who know exactely how to comment, stimulate and have no doubt thing will turn out fine.

    for myself, I'm not scared showing processes. It's always good to look at your posts when you're at work so you can contemplate about things when getting home :)

    thanks again,
    René

    Part of the job :)

    Since I don't have a 3D impression of major Konig I thought it would be nice to have a little study on eventual wrinkles and foils.
    Besides that...I think it's also nice to introduce myself...

    Self posing is always a good way to get the feel for the way individual fabrics react to different movement, just guessing really doesn't cut it and this will give you more realistic results.

    Nice progress so far Rene and look forward to seeing more.

    Cheers

    every word you say is true Steve and I realize even more I am in good company now.

    Working and contemplating with and on your sculpt sometimes make you realize you 'are' the sculpt.
    It needs to be treated with the utmost caution all the time, something non-sculptors don't realize when scanning it in their lazy chairs.

    I think a real sculptor has a lot of stamina, persistance and must be selective.

    Yes Antonio,
    I am familiar with this toy.
    Nice sculpt, bad painting. But it's supposed to be a toy and handled this way.
    When I start painting mine I will pay attention to shades and the faded grey Konig shows as in the movie.

    my guitars ( not that it matters...) my Alhambra 6p which I equiped with the Fishman Equalizer plus condensator mic:
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T4GsD_hCBFE

    and recently the Ramirez S1, good sound (y)!

    it is well know Harris looks like Rommel, but Harris also looks like Magneto, Daniel Craig,..
    Perhaps Ed will be casted for a movie about the live of Rommel....

    are you still going steady with the Rommel bust?

    Jimmy Hendrix no less :)

    I'm also planning some musicians but it's providing the instruments why I postpone it for a while.

    On the other hand...once you've created a strat or a Martin or a Gibson...you can equip a lot of artists with them.

    but still I am very curious about your Jimmy buste..

    Regards,

    René

    some reduction of the wrinkles, the parka is a bit 'tighty'.
    Flattening most of them, coming along fine.

    Some correction on the caps eagle and added the cocarde.
    Ranking made of copperwire, flattened.
    Added the fluffy wool inside the jacket that's coming out a bit.
    Pockets and buttons.

    Little correction on the left collar ranking, hard to see now but I filled it up a bit after some reduction with my Proxxon.

    Your progress is very good René i like what you have done so far.

    One thing to check is the distance between the busts left elbow to the edge of the sleeve, this distance looks a little too long on the side profile image compared to the distance from shoulder to elbow, maybe you still have to trim the cuff of the sleeve yet so i might be wrong.

    Hi Steve,

    thanks for your advise.
    I had no trimming in mind, the sleeves of this parka seem to look a bit longer than others.
    His hands may hide a bit in the sleeves, bet even then,...you still think they are too long in that case?

    it's hard...for me, this measuring.

    but I do like this parka :)

    Hello Markus,

    I am really confused now...both distance shoulder/elbow as elbow/ end sleeve measure 4 cm.

    Could it be it looks different because the parka is filled up inside? Or should I skip a few mm's at the end..?

    I planned to let my proxxon rotate a piece of aluminium or copper and have a file shape this scope. I't my way to make grenades or candles.

    Pictures are always wanted ofcourse Markus.
    You can post them right here or send them to reneduret@casema.nl

    thanks in advance,

    René

    Hi Rene,

    This may or may not be of much help but if you compare the lines drawn along the centerline of the arm you can tell that the lower arm is longer. I don't have a way to accurately measure the actual length, but as a comparative illustration this might help to see what the other posters are referring to. I agree with the other guys that the lower arm looks a little long, and after you add the hand it will exagerate it even more. I really like this sculpt and I hope this helps a bit, if not, please feel free to completely ignore it! LOL
