    Hi all this is my latest sculpt that i have been doing for the last week,he will be gift for my son as he always shows an interest in my sculped figures.I have portrayed him as knight in the Hollyland watching over the Christian Pilgrims.Not sure of a colur sceme for him yet as i will decide that with my son as he will have to look at him daily.

    Sculpted with Magicsculpt and milliput, scale is 120mm.

    All comments and critique welcome,

    Steve

    Steve,
    The overall build is very good,my only complaint is that the right leg looks a little too high as he leans slightly forward.If the knee was lowered it would look more natural.imho.

    Thanks Andy and i see what you are saying but the idea was to fit the figure to the rock and going by his proportions this is how he would fit to the shape of the rock i selected.The only way to lower the knee would be to reduce the length of the lower leg and that would put the proportions way out.

    Thanks again mate

    Hi Steve,

    Wow, your son is very lucky. I hope he appreciates the skill and artistry that's gone into sculpting this magnificent piece. If he doesn't, I do (hint hint).

    Nice to see a Crusader who's sitting down. All other Crusaders seem to spend their time standing around with their legs very far apart.

    Very nice!

    Question: what did you use for the eyes? ball bearings? And what size did you use? And, if I may ask, where did you get them?

    I like the face and love the chain mail! The forearm leather protectors are a great touch!!

    Best,

    Kevin D.

    thanks everyone for the comments on the figure i will post more pictures when the painting starts which hopefully should be soon.

    @Kevin...yes they are ball bearings for the eyes,i use them on all my sculpted heads now and they are exellent.

    These are the sizes i use for different scales;

    Scale / Bearing size

    54mm = 1mm
    75mm = 1.5mm
    90mm = 2mm
    120mm = 2.5mm
    1/10 = 4mm

    here is the link to the online shop i buy from http://simplybearings.co.uk/shop/index.php?cPath=23

    thanks

    Steve this is a wonderful sculpture!
    You did a great job.
    Is it easier to sculpt bigger figures than smaller ones?

    Regards,
    Marcel.

    Marcel thankyou my friend,for me i find that 120mm is a comfortable scale for me and i find it easier than say 54mm,you have more room to work on and it is easier on the eyes.I started out sculpting in this scale so maybe that is why i like it so much,i think 90mm is a very nice scale to work on also.
    If you are say 2mm out on the proportions of a 120mm figure you may get away with it but the same 2mm on a 54mm figure will be very obvious.

    All the best mate
