Here’s some useful online green stuff sculpting lessons. They cover all the basics including creating and sculpting around a wire armature, sculpting faces and hands and ‘dressing’ your sculpture in clothing.
I regularly visit the Ebob Miniatures ‘Greenroom’ to see what this sculptor is up to. There’s invariably interesting work on their site and the most recent piece (as of this posting) is no exception. Imho this beautiful and dynamic 28mm horse sculpt far exceeds the mediocre plastic ‘horses’ that Games Workshop include in their Fantasy line. Lovely!
This horse is available from Ebob Miniatures as a multi-part white metal kit. Despite the fact I have almost no use for a 28mm horse at the moment I’m very tempted just to order one! The creator also grants permission for commerical re-use and re-casting which is interesting.
Here’s another face sculpting tutorial. The faces this sculptor creates are nice and clean, if not a little generic and mad looking. I’m not really in that much of position to comment though, having never sculpted a 28mm face myself!
And to think I spent all that cash buying dollies when I could have just made my own. Ah well, I didn’t actually spend that much much…and twisting wire takes time!
I’ve mentioned Ebob Miniatures before. Unfortunately I didn’t take a good look at their whole site! There’s actually some superb sculpting tutorials on there as well. In particular the face sculpting tutorial, and the seated Gimli tutorial stand out.
