Thanks again guys.~Gary
A secomd layer of Sculpey needs to be added. After brushing on a light coat of Diluent I then place a piece of Sculpey that will form the back half of the neck.
Another piece is added to the front. Some of the excess is trimmed from the piece.
After both pieces are smoothed together I note where some of the neck muscles wil be located. Though I plan on removing some of the material once I start to work in the musculature I decided to add a bit more to the jawline of the head.
Here you can see how the face has been altered with the addition of a little more material. I still need to work with it a bit, so the face is still not 100% done. I also had to fill out the right side of the torso.
The attention to detail in this thread you have posted is Amazing
Hi Gary,I also agree with the comment that your attention to detail in this thread is amazing.I am very much enjoying following the steps you a showing us.Kind regards John
Jeff and John, Thanks I appreciate it. I'm sure there are some sections that could have benefit from a little more detail, though I hope the most important parts show enough.~Gary
Here the diagonal lines that represent the sternomastoid which is a fairly prominant muscle of the neck. I have removed enough material to make it noticable.
Here is the neck after blending and before the addition of the adam's apple.
Here a piece of Sculpey has been placed over the area that will become the Adam's apple.
Two diagonal sections have been cut out to form the shape of the Adam's apple.
Here is the profile of the neck showing the material completely blended into the neck.
Here I have cleaned up the base of the neck and I have made a separation line showing how the head will be placed on the body. I may add a few lines of detail to the neck, but for the most part it will be covered by the shirt and jacket collars.
for the moment, it's a very good job
Gary, did you just cut with a knife or did you do the string cut trick?
Francesca, No, I just cut it with a fresh X-acto blade. I do like the string idea though, never thought to do that.~Gary
I saw the guys who work large scale do it with "invisible thread"... Your cut looked so clean that I thought maybe you had as well (except you didn't mention it and I was pretty sure you would have at least made reference to it if you had!).
Thanks a lot for all the effort you put in this sbs, Gary!
It has already been very helpfull for me, and I'll certainly follow it to the end.
