    Good point. ;)

    I know after programming all day the last thing I want to do with my free time is write more code. Sometimes I don't even check email on weekends just to get away from the thing! <_<

    Leigh & Anders, It's great to have some company, with more yet to join. I would not worry about the authenticity issue, there are a number of photos of Indians wearing civilian clothing. Little hand appears to be wearing nothing more than a vest and shirt. I'm sure a little searching on the net for late 19th and early 20th century clothing will yield results. I will be posting a few pics today but will not make a rush job completing it. Take the time your given and most of all have fun.

    This drawing may be of some help when working on the head.~Gary

    I have have gotten all the features carved in. I will now go in and hit it with a little more sandpaper to prepare it for additional material.~Gary

    The only thing done here was to indicate the back of the arms. The laying in of the facial features will really be the last step of the ones outlined on page 3.

    Hey Guys!

    Comparing my mannequin to you guys's it seems that my neck is somewhat off, is it too long or what? Also seams like my torso is longer hmmm...might have to do some changes :)

    Anders, I would bring the shoulders up and make them more square, once there they can then be rounded. Once you do that you may also have to bring the chest up also. Check you proportions. With the exception of the above you are doing well.~Gary

    Thanks Guy, This is a great way to learn, and everybody will. It's the next best thing to being in a club or being part of seminar. This is fantastic!~Gary

    Hey Gary!

    Yeah, I think Im just going to redo the whole upper body by adding more putty and bringing up the shoulders like you said. Will give me something to do tonight :) Thanks for helping me so much :)

    Anders, Studying the picture of Little Hand I notice that his neck appears to be quite short ( the chin is quite close to the line of the shoulders) and his shoulders are not angular but more horizontal ( the trapezius muscles which basicly run between the neck to the shoulder don't seem really prominent to me)
    Maybe in the picture he is sitting in a chair or something so it gives that impresion

    Anyway thats my story so thats the way I'm going

    Leigh, I agree with your observations regarding Little Hand's physical build and posture in the photo. I will try to reflect this when additional material is added to the bust.~Gary

    Here you can see that I've started to carve away some of the baked sculpey in order to start defining the features. As there is a thin layer over the thicker one it tends to crack and fracture as you proceed. Unless you carve from a solid blob this is unavoidable. You can go in and fill where pieces chip off. I use a bit of sculpey diluent to adhere it to the surface. I have also blocked in the nose. This gives you a solid foundation to build the nose on, otherwise you are just piling soft sculpey on top off soft sculpey.~Gary

    These two photos also show lines I have drawn in so I know where to carve.
