More sculpting on the coat and underpinning for the collar brought us to this point:
Then I broke off the original sword, so tried a slightly longer and more ornate one, which was actually a better fit:
The other thing this sword had going for it was that it only had one attachment point to the belt – whereas the previous one had two, and I just couldn’t really make it look natural.
So now I took some tiny pieces of chain and Greenstuff belt strips, and 2 hours later…
A bit more sculpting on the sleeves and a re-do on the sword brought me to this point:
From this point there’s a few more un-photographed steps:
– Sculpted a hat
– Re-built the gun twice – the un-pictured one looked like a dead lizard, so it was scrapped
– Added a collar and lapels, and the little rear belt bit and finished the sleeves on the coat
Thanks for looking – Next time, adventures with hair and brass goggles!
