For the past couple years I have been making one titan, so my own stuff really got delayed... the scale of the titan really made me work on sculpting in a diferent way but now that the titan is almost done its time to get back to my favorite scale 28mm.
Problem is I'm rusty and need to get back on track asap.
So I took one online challenge to sculpt a critter/ alien animal and used this to train in 28mm sizes... Also this time instead of planning things ahead I just got my hands on greenstuff and sculpted whatever crossed my mind inside the theme... lets just say things thended to get messy and the end result is a boring concept, but I managed to train in a 25mm animal and remembered some of the old methods and ways of sculpting I used do make.
The training will continue soon but for now heres my alien animal thing.
That's a cute little critter. It is well sculpted, the muscles look like they are in the right places. I understand what you mean about forgetting stuff. I went through a low patch in no painting last year and since then started to paint again, faster than before. But I noticed what you did, I had to awaken what I had learned before. However it also gave me a new critical perspective on what I was doing and how I was doing it. This has helped me to improve. You may find the same applies to you sculpting skills, a drop in the output of stuff can be useful.
Hi bug freind Leech, always a pleasure to talk with you... How's you hive fleet going?
I guess your right, now I put things even more on prespective since now I value things that before I took for granted...
One thing that I had forgot also is how its joy to sculpt something small and get final results quickly... the mega titan really distorts time and final results.
Hey Bugman, my swarm is going well. I liked your Tyrant guard. You are right that working on something for a long time changes perspective on things. I worked on a Hierodule for a while and smaller things seemed so easy compared to it. Working on smaller things I think also provides an easy chance to do something new. Often it is the case with larger, expensive models that doing something new on them can be a little scary because if it goes wrong fixing a big one is harder. The small critter provide easy chances to much about and we then get new ideas to make the others better.
