    This is my entry for the JMD sculpting contest 2008.
    [IMG]
    An initiative from JMD miniatures ( France )
    They produced a naked bust that has to be used in there contest as base to create a new one .
    It has to be origial and not commercial available .
    All information is available at http://www.jmd-miniatures.com/concours.php
    I can not paint the miniature because no paint is alowed on the entries .

    The materials used are :
    tamyia putty ( the green one/slow drying type) : for the first time I used this
    medium to replace the ( hard to get ) green stuff .
    lead foil : for the leather straps
    brown stuff : for some details ( buttons ) and the pipe

    Below a step by step how I did it :

    [IMG]
    the start , the naked bust : I removed some musscle structures and sanded down the shoulders .

    This is just GREAT! That bust has such a fantasy look to it I would not have passed it for something like this. Great work! If this were a commecial piece I would snatch one up in a second!
