    Great job so far Kaz. The pose looks very natural. I think you did a great job with the head as well.

    Thanks Nick, John,

    I focused on the pose and head and I'm really appreciate your comment, I'm really glad.
    First of all I paid attention on weight balance and bone structure, I started sculpting from skull and bones, and decided the pose after that.

    Oh, by the way, John, Do you remember the comment on your blog here?:

    Thanks Carl, but I think I should shape the left shoulder a little bit more. It's little bit higher and bigger than it should be.

    The figures right shoulder? It does look smaller in comparison.

    Oh, I mean, left from the figure's view. The right shoulder from our side view.

    Kaz,
    Looks a great figure.
    But in my opinion he looks somewhat skinny. Specially the legs has not much musculature.

    I use Magic Sculpt and several sizes of brass wires (0.5mm, 0.8mm, 1mm for body, 0.3mm for hand).

    Thanks Ken, I'm glad you liked the hand 'cause I think hands are the second "face" of the figure and I take it as one of the most important elements, I'm trying to put particular emphasis on it.

    Some progress pics. Started making duffel coat, added a little bit volume to the trousers, and some small modifications.
