    Gary,

    Can't thank you enough for this sbs on how you're doing the drapery. That is one of the toughest things for me. Gives me hope!

    Gary,

    I understand about "slow" and the ebb and flow of interest. I'm right there with you. Besides, it's the end results that matter, not the time it takes to get there. Your results are excellent!

    Guys, Thanks for all the kind words. To me the most important thing is to develope a system for sculpting a figure by working on the figure as a whole by working your way to the completed model. It can be easy to concentrate on one aspect of the figure and lose site of the rest.

    Here is Highlander #2. I still have some work on the kilt and need to work the hose a little more as I'm not too thrilled with the way they look.

    Now that my computer is working again I thought I'd post what little progress I've made on the vignette. I started the waistcoats on both figures in addition to roughing in the shapes of the equipment. This is a tricky stage of construction as both of the figures arms are close to the body which makes clothing and equipment placement a bit of a challenge.

    This photo shows the rough arms and musket as positioned in the painting. I have to be mindful of where the jacket drapes over the right half of the cartridge box while also making sure there is enough room for the cuff on the right sleeve.

    This is figure #2 without the arms. The sporran (purse) is visible under the waistcoat front as is the cartridge box. The cartridge box poses a bit of a proble so I sanded almost half of it away and replaced it with a blob of Aves putty that is roughly in the shape of the cartridge box. The front of the jacket will cover this area and allow the rest of the cartridge box to slide into place as a separate piece.

    Leigh, I got a Trojan horse on my computer and not knowing much about these thing took a while to get it functioning again. Given that my progress was at a standstill until now.

    Jason, I hope to start the jacket today.

    Another close up of the cartridge box. The white portion done in Aves will be covered.

    Here is a close up of Highlander #1's sporran and lower waistcoat.

    Turned out the JPEG compression was set at low quality hence the poor pictures I first posted.

    I too am glad to see you back. This is just the thing I need to help me get back into the swing of things.

    This is the first step in making Highlander #2's jacket. I applied the sheet of A&B putty after applying a thin film of vaseline over the chest area and cartridge box. I did this as it will be easier for me to thin out the edge to make the jacket appear scale and to shorten it at the bottom a bit. I almost always allow myself a little extra material in the event things do not go as planned.

    Here is the right side of Highlander #1's jacket. I backfilled the inside of the jacket with Magicsculpt and sanded down the outside to give the edge a more scale look. you can see by the indent where the "belly box" (cartridge box) gets placed. I also built up a bit of the area for the collar.
