Cheers @KungFuPanda and @Punktaku :) She's a private commission, but there may be a limited run done in resin. Maybe...

What a sweety!
I like your approach to sculpting. Correct me if I'm wrong, you seems to be patient and that's most important trait if one's up to achieve a professional level results like your's. I'm not patient enough nor for sculpting nor for painting but at least I know how to improve further once I will be ready for:p

Thanks mate. You are correct, patience is certainly an important requirement along with constant practice. A sculpt like this usually takes me around 25 hours or so. But I usually work on 2 or 3 commissions at a time, so a sculpt can take anywhere from 2-4 weeks.

She is excellent. Great bounty hunter or extra for my Escher. Please keep us posted if there's a casting run, I'd be keen (y)

I'm guessing that doing multiple sculpts does it so you don't grow tired of just sitting with one sculpt and burn out :)

Yes, exactly this! :)

Wow... I remember seeing the first post from this thread and then 6 pages later it is like :notworthy::notworthy:

Some fantastic work @brassmonkey, really like the style you have going into these minis and they are just such clean sculpts :cool:

Why thank you kindly!

Here she is with alternative helmet head:

So @brassmonkey, what would you say to you or I sharing our processes, start to finish. Say like an Instructibles post?

An interesting proposition. I have been putting together photos and notes for tutorials for some time now. When I get the time I will complete a proper tutorial for sculpting a mini from start to finish. Don’t know when that will be, since I have a lot of commissions that take priority.

While I wish I had the commission issue, (no one near me seems to care), I can completely understand. I'll see what I can get done on my end, although I sadly am limited with me levels of green stuff, or other epoxy. Meh, we'll get it figured out.
