Pirate bust sculpt - wip III

Some adds on my pirate bust...who is close to the end! I tried to finish details at this stage...and add some textures, the wear of the clothes and belt and to clean the overall. I wanted to try to make scars on his shoulder to show more precisely in what context this pirate evolves...and i'm quiet happy with the result. The last step will be to complete hairs, back of th scarf and gourd...see you soon for the end of this project! 




Pirate bust sculpt - wip II

New step with my 1/12e pirate bust...after my first attempt and too tight bust volumes, here is the second version ... more muscular and more balanced. Now i'm quite happy with the overall volumes. Still some effort, retouches, details and I would arrive at the end...soon i hope! In any case, a lot of fun throughout this work with which I learn a lot. Thank for all your encouragement and constructive advices on facebook ... you are at the top!





Pirate bust sculpt - wip I

Today it's time for a little unpretentious thing...the start of a new sculpture project with this pirate face at something around 1/12 scale...a good exercise to progress on the difficult path of sculpture...I hope to be able to finish it without problems! 



Hope you'll like it! Cheers!


Kobold Blacksmith Miniatures

And finaly One more step in the world of Jean-Baptiste Monge with the coloring of the kobold sculpted by Patrick Masson. I had a lot of fun to paint this character that looks seemingly simple and easy to paint...but it was more difficult than expected to catch the atmosphere of the illustration. It was a great pleasure to paint something sculpted by the talented Patrick Masson...because it's been a long time i admired his works. This piece will not be the last of the series...a big bulldog and his leprechaun pet just landed on my workspace...

For last minute purchases...the Blacksmith Miniatures kikstarter is here:  "The world of  Jean-Baptiste Monge"
