I'll keep with the photo bombing :P

I'm trying to do a once a week photo advancement...









Now I need to focus on his hands and on what I hate most... weapons :P

What about some details on Green Stuff + Brown Stuff...

Sculpting is great! Perhaps armor could be a bit sharper around the edges? I think that could be done by scrud*ing carefully with a very sharp x-acto blade. Basically that's the technique I would use with weapons and other mechanical looking stuff as well. It can be done with pure green stuff as well. The advantage with a 50/50 mix brown/green is that you can ALSO sand it. Anyway, hard sculpting is the trick.   
Designwise.. not to my tastes I'm afraid.

any chance someone has a x-acto blade pic around so I can guess the local equivalent?
 I'm not comfortable with the edges too, so I plan to do something with them... hopefully not screwing something else :P

X-acto blade = Sharp scalpel of any type really. As long as the edge is flat not rounded (flat works better for scrud*ing)

Thanks for the pic... I ussually use a hobby knife... but I have one of those somewhere, that will probably allow me to reach more complicated zones.
