Some more work on the orc.

 Thanks for nice things said on FB and here. I managed another hour on medium tonight and I'm pleased with the results. Every addition is on a separate layer of its own so I can mix and match as I sculpt alternatives. It’s a bit ham fisted but it’s got the right feel for me. Have to say I'm pleased.

Next up a couple of shields, a different weapon, maybe some armour and a hat!

My first orc sculpt

 In the past I've tried sculpting with miliputt and greenstuff, I sort of made progress but gave up, it took too long and I'd keep ruining bits I liked.

I also tried sculpting with blender but made very little progress.

I have however started on occulus medium which allows you to sculpt in VR. I have to say I love it and thought I'd share my first sculpt. It's a bare bones orc that I intend to add embellishments to and produce different figures, currently the head and arms are different models.

Now I know professional sculpters can achive amazing things, there are many very talented amatures too but all I'm trying to do is make a figure that looks like it could have been made from green stuff in the late 80's. I'm trying for a sort of Tony Akland style of orc and feel I'm making modest progress so thought I'd share.

So first some inspiration:


 And now a sculpt that needs lots of work.....

I have a long way to go, I know but its very enjoyable.
