These are great. I like the drapery on both. How much more do you want to do with each?

Like them.

In case anyone is wondering why I've stopped commenting (more or less) on others sculpts it's because I feel lately I'm putting myself ahead a bit much in commenting details. Kind of a "Who am I to tell people how to sculpt?" feeling.

"Who am I to tell people how to sculpt?"

I feel the same about saying about other peoples painting and I hope they take as helpful advice.  :icon_ermm:

It's not putting yourself ahead, it's helping other people understand something better, even if you haven't mastered it yourself yet.  :icon_wink:

@ Bodhi = ...and to add on what Wristy said: Even if you doubt your own skill level and think you shouldn't be commenting on other people work, you do have an educated eye and may notice something the other sculptor didn't. We all know we need an extra set of eyes every now and then to see things that we miss. We all learn from eachother and even a master can learn from his pupil.

@ S1ND3X = I think they are looking good and with the parts you mentioned working on they will look even better. It would be great to see the other Jedi. The ones you mentioned were exactly who I was thinking of when I made that remark about doing the others.

Heh. I WAS NOT "fishing for compliments" and I do NOT doubt my skill level. At times I consider myself better than most other sculptors out there (if a bit slow...), at times...not so good, which is normal. What I doubt is my teaching abilities if anything  :icon_wink:

Edit: No, not even that. I'm dying for a workshop that's it! Lately when I see other peoples sculpts (And my own to) I just want to grab and show and point out what could be done to further improve them. Words don't seem enough. And I want others to grab and show and point out on my figures to. Seems like that would be a way of going forwards in leaps and bounds much more than words enable us to do.

This sculpting thingy is after all very much a hands on thing, not so much a converstion subject. Design and idea is something that can more easily be discussed and I like the design and ideas for these ones.

For commenting on sculpting TECHNIQUE really the whole working process from first armature to finished must be viewed. I'd love to partake in an internet "workshop" with step by step pictures but I fear that might be a bit to slow and would hinder actual sculpting.

Shaak Ti is one of my favourites.
An Ithorian Jedi would be great too, like from clone wars.
