I have been inspired by rereading Sherlock Holmes, so am going to sculpt and paint a bust of Dr Watson as he would have been on service (attached to) with the 66th regiment of foot in 1880

I'm aiming to make something resembling my sketch (And a build log of my work progress)

[_564_zpsa4e9344f] 

The uniform is based on this pic of Surgeons in Malta 

[MedicalStaffBaseHospEgypt001_zpsbc05a50b] 

My medium of choice for this is Super Sculpey (Polymer clay) mainly because the stuff never dries or goes off unless you cook it, giving me a nice long working time 

Armature will be made using wire and foil (to pad out interior of armature to reduce amount of Sculpey used)

[_565_zps03172030]

And to begin

Armature made

[_566_zpsfe6eddd8]    

And basic features sculpted on (along way from anything near what I want but its a start)

[_568_zps3b8dd08d] 
[_569_zps3e424a88] 
[_570_zpsa5f2fc13] 

This is something I've not done for nearly 20 years so its a bit of a big jump back into sculpting the human form)

Thanks for looking 

Stephen 
(If anyone has found any loss marbles they may be mine)

Some more refinement work

[_572_zpsebe1cd7f]   
[_573_zps1156b71e] 
[_574_zps519ec309] 

Quite a long way to go still 

next step will be the eyes and cheeks (possibly removing eye sections and placing in some metal beads to make life easier)

Thanks for looking 

Stephen

That's brilliant Stephen, I'm a subscriber, really interested in watching this come together. [smile]


Do you sculpt with your fingers? Or tools? Or a bit of both?

I sculpt with both tools and fingers (pretty much anything that will do the job I need)

Most of the work so far has been to simple add and remove material, so main tools so far are scrapers and a knife

I'm following along with this one too, I hope to pick up a few tips on the way. You are off to a great start, the proportions look spot on

A selection of tools I'm using on this sculpt (there will probably be a few more used by the end)

It's Fascinating watching it come more alive with every update, the character is beginning to emerge now, I don't know about anybody else, but I can see Donald Pleasence in the last couple of pics, but I realise he will change again as you move forward with the sculpt

Really interesting to see this

Donald Pleasence? Yeah absolutely Pete. lol I was looking at it thinking he looked familiar. Straight out of the Great Escape even.
