Head looks great. If you had some left over, you could maybe experiment with adding some "real hair" strands around the plastic -- but be careful in case they need to be removed. Just an idea.

All used up mate, I take it you mean the Sculpy? Adding some to the sculpted hair? Tricky to pull that off for various reasons to be honest, done it before.

That's a good colour match on the hair, I know what you mean about adding strands to sculpted hair, also the flash photography highlights the texture difference quite a lot,very nice work though.


Cheers,


Peter.

Thanks Peter! Took some odd multi colour mixes and layers but got there in the end. Yes my snap photography with a flash will always bring out any flaws mercilessly but that can often be a useful tool in the WIP to give me a different perspective to spot where improvements can be made, in this case it does look more uniform to the naked eye but getting these two media to blend perfectly is even something the professionals still fall short on so I can live with it  Wink .

Made connectors for the head which was quite tricky on this one but works using lubricated rubber, also modded a pair of matching hands (harder to find than you'd think as they also need to match his face!) from my 'box of hands'. I tested gripping a real axe myself in different ways to feel what would work best and decided one natural grip hand would work for both the Dane axe and the throwing axe (got a few real ones of those too) and a hand with a grip and thumb support works well on the upper part of the Dane axe's haft, securing the indexing point for the blade's edge alignment and allowing the haft to slide through the grip to strike (I did some Viking re-enactment years ago).

Thanks! As for finished, miles away! Got the hardest parts to do next: make a decorative leather belt and hand sculpted buckle, custom leather pouches, leather knife sheaths, custom knives, axe ring. Then very complicated vambraces that look like an Esher staircase print, all the complicated and layered bicep armour that might need to be cast in resin or latex plus multiple leather layers, and the boots! affraid

I'm still avoiding the hard parts lol! Well I did stab myself inserting the scalpel blade completely vertically into the top of my right index finger which ironically was the exact same finger I was modding for the figure so he could hold the large axe! Cool Done some leather work for the boots and braided a bunch of brown waxed string to detail the edges of his vambraces/gauntlets.

Ah well that's what elastic bands and tape are for until you can apply some TCP and a bandage.

More boot work, scavenged loads of buckles from some German backpacks and started the big belt...trimmed the beard into the geometric pattern he has and glossed the eyes etc..pic doesn't show this very well at all. I also made a 'sheet' of Dwarven scale armour by taking impressions from a 1/6 rotocast Gimli figure's armour repeatedly in flattened plasticine coated with silicone oil, then applied the first layer of black liquid latex that is now curing.

You are a machine! This thread is more fun than the Hobbit movies.

And yeah I feel you, last week I cut away a piece of my left middlefinger while cutting styrofoam.

When they are all finished, please make a very long detail showcase video using this song, send it to WETA and Peter Jackson and make them cry happy tears. Thx, bye! :p

Beautiful and very moving song! Well discovered, reminds me very much of the Irish band Clannad from Donegal who Enya used to be the lead singer for back in the day a long time ago. They even use the Irish bodhran in the song you found (a hand held drum hit with a double ended tapping stick).

Also from a film, 'Harry's Game' about the Northern Irish 'Troubles' back in the early 80's

A lot of their stuff is instrumental I think but then she is a musician not just a singer.

I've been busy working on modding my Kriss Vector but still got some work done on Gloin, been watching 'Farscape' (again) and just realised how much Kar'Dargo looks like Gloin Laughing

LOL, I thought I'd explained it Wink . Well I do what I can with what I have untill I really need something like the stencil I just ordered, annoyingly it's coming from China as I couldn't find one locally on ebay but should help a lot with patterns like his gauntlets. I made that much latex Dwarf scale armour as Thorin will need most of it.

Cheers RS! The latex pattern method takes a couple of days as you have to wait while each coat dries before applying the next but you don't have to really do anything LOL.

Redoing his arms by thickening them up, reattaching the base shirt material and now building the bicep armour. The pattern scissors I have can't cut pleather annoyingly so I'm having to use PVA stiffened fibre card which I'll then paint and layer together.

Using foam to thicken the arms is genius, as it will not get in the way of articulation the way other materials would.

Jim Henson Studios is American and was in charge of all the creatures like the puppets, not sure if they were involved with the make up actor related designs so it could well have been someone who went on to work for Wetta Studios later.

Assembled and inked the upper bicep armour that seems to be a mix of leather and metal in the movie prop costume like Gimli's helmet neck guard.

Well I've finished fabricating it now, basically a lot of cutting and glueing then redoing it multiple times until I was happy with it. Needs to be touched up with sepia ink to cover glue etc.. and the silver plates need painting but seems to do the trick, not great for articulation but he's only got broad stumpy arms anyway.
