    Hey Guys!

    Guess the saying no rest for the wicked rings true with me! I've now started my next project, which will be another WWII russian project.

    Here are the first pics, the head is a Verlinden I belive, the boots are Tamiya and the rest is Magic Sculpt and paperclips. Ive changed the position of the knees since this picture was taken as they are way to high here.

    Here is the left leg sculpted. I'm aiming for some baggie worn pants.

    And the right leg is now done. Total time on figure so far: 2 hours.

    The front of the legs look good, amigo! But aren't there too many folds on the back? You can achieve the impression you're shooting for - that of "baggy pants" - with fewer folds that are spaced farther away. Just my thoughts ...

    Hey Pete!

    Yeah, I was kind of feeling the same way, that there are just to many folds. Maybe it can be possible to look like this though?

    Great start Anders! (y)

    I'd echo the back fold comments. But the front/sides and overall proportions look very good. Can't wait to see more. Thanks for taking the time to show your progress. Very helpful.

    anythings possible!

    Great improvements your making Anders :)

    I would agree, the wrinkles maybe legitmate, however this consideration must be made:

    the number and type of wrinkles imply material type

    In this case, the folds give one the illusion that the pants are made of thin satin/silk and not of wool or duck.

    There would be cases of where wool/duck/cotton could make those patterns but that would be under a tight strain or if the material was wet...

    Anders, You do not waste time my friend. I would fill in some of the folds on the back part of the thigh (if you want). I try to keep in mind the type of fabric that I'm trying to depict, keeping in mind not only the look of the folds but the amount. Your sculpting is really showing improvement here, you've got some really nice sharp edges on some of the folds which really stand out. Keep going and here's a website that may help you with uniforms and equipment.~Gary
