Hey guys!

This is the first time I've posted in the 40k section, my usual haunt being the Fantasy bit, but just for a change I wanted to do something a bit out of my comfort zone...

In a nutshell, due to the fact I always seem to be sculpting monsters of some description, for my latest project i decided to do something a bit different...a WIP Futuristic British Tommy... I was umming and ahhing over which bit to put it in... he's human, so he can be from some obscure planet in the Imperium ;)

The photos are pretty crap... you can't even see the moustache! But i shall try and get decent ones for y'all later on this week ;)

Hmm, legs are too short, the head looks a bit unnatural, the armour looks amazing though!

How big is the fella?

Where can we find pictures of your other sculpts?

malika : Yeahh, the proportions are a bit dodgy, I hardly ever sculpt humans, big gribblies are usually my area of expertise ;) I just fancied doing something different!

And my Warseer blog is here, check it out!

Dude! That guy is looking amazing! A few improvements here and there such as the proportions and the boots and you got yourself some very producable figures! You might wanna check the link in my sig for that! :)

That's looking good. Plenty character in his facial expression.

As malika noted, there are things that could be improved, but it's all a learning experience and practice. Listen to constructive criticism and see where you can improve, then make note of it for the next project.

Good luck with your next sculpt.

Proportionwise what I see is that it seems as if the arms are slightly too thin, the legs are somewhat too short and his head is a bit too big. But overall the figure looks really good, the pose and equipment look amazing!
