Fellow planeteers , it has been a while . Sculpting involves a lot of time . Here's a brief update concerning my next vignette . Number 2 and the extra figure are ready to paint . A had some comments concerning the extra ( beggar ) figure, he's not in the original work .I have some doubt if he's gone make it ( and where ) in the finished project . But he was already in the making , so I finished him. As I explained earlier , I want to get some contrast between the rich world of commerce ( gold,lace ,ect ) and the reality of this age . Comments are welcome ! The head and the hands are from the spare box ( verlinden ,........) Sculpted with a mixture of duro and milliput . Number two , the merchant himself , is also primed . Before painting I want to finish the other 2 figures -numbers 3 and 4 who are holding the red cloth. These 3 are conected through this cloth and the folding has to be correct because there hands are in contact with it . A view of the finished figure :a mixture of duro and milliput. Facial hair : brown duro ( brown stuff ) . The head and the hands are from the Hornet range .
