For this weeks tip I thought I would show everyone how a miniature starts. I know this is a little advanced but I thought everyone would like to see how a figure is sculpted from the beginning.
The videos below show how I stretch and pose an armature and I go into underpinning a little.
The tools I use are simple miniature pliers and clippers that you can find at most hobby stores, and a pair of calipers which you can find here . Calipers are essential for measuring proportions so if you are serious about sculpting humans I'd pick up a set.
If you are interested in getting some armatures Reaper miniatures sells some Here. They also have some with muscles, these are good if you want to get a handle on how things work for practice but its always better to do it on your own.
As always if you have any questions feel free to post them and I'll answer them as best I can.
I apologize for the number of videos but I had to break them up into parts because blogger only accepts short length videos.
