    Thanks everyone!

    Yes, and I feel adding the groundwork, as I go along, will keep me from rushing to get it done.

    Jason, I am enjoying this thread very much. Your figures are very well done. Looking forward to the rest of the figures. I am just wondering how on earth do you manage to do so much in such a short period of time. Do you not sleep? :lol:


    regards :)

    Thanks Alex, Wong, Gary and Kenneth!

    On the groundwork- this approach is more psychological than anything. The last thing I want is to get bored while doing one long project then the next. Therefore I'm trying to spread things out-sculpting and painting the figure and finally groundwork, just as I would a single figure display.

    I try be as efficient with my time as possible. I've been working on this project for at least a couple hours every night since starting (Usually when the kids are in bed and the wife has had enough of me :lol:) and a little more on the weekends. It dosn't take long to get things done with this scale, which is a good thing. I can't imagine doing a project of this size in a larger scale!

    Thanks again guy's! You all on the planet do a great job motivating me. :)

    Happy New Year!!

    Hello Jason!

    really excellent work! A lot of life and character. Too few people build exceptional pieces like this, and I'm sure it will be exceptional when completely finished!

    The composition ooks nicely tight and promising, and I love the painting style also, somewhere in-between Bill Horan and Doug Cohen.

    Keep that rythm!

    Jason, Very nice. A great choice of head for the Kaiser. I love the folds on the front of his tunic.

    Would love to go to the show in Michigan, a great chance to talk shop with you. Maybe next year. It would make for a nice Winter getaway weekend.~Gary

    A fine job again Jason. I'm curious, did you do the top or bottom of the tunic first?

    Wow Jason, what an excellent piece all round, I love it!

    Thanks Gary, John and Leigh!

    John, I sculpted the top first. I first built up the mid-section to show a belly (hey, he's a king!) then added the skirt form rolled out putty. Note, the belt is more like a sash with the actual sword belt underneath the tunic skirt.

    I'm not going to add the spike until finished w/ the sculpt.

    Gary, just joking about the MI show. :) It would be nice to see this show grow. January is a tough month to get people to travel to small events but it's a good time and the venue is just right. Hopefully someday it will be as big as Atlanta or Tulsa.

    I apologize for not posting more in-progress pic's, I'm getting ahead of myself.

    Thanks again, guy's!

    Hey!!! That's a damn good likeness of the Kaiser!!! Just a question, did you use that illustration in Osprey's latest book on the Prussian army as a reference ?

    ... Well done. Capturing a likeness of somebody is an achievement, I guess this is going to be - again - your best figure yet !!! You're always getting better and better ! (y) And believe me you sure have reached a level of sculpting that would justify some commercial figures - "manufacturors, do you read this"??? :lol:
