Frank opened a sculptors thread some days ago, and so one piece came to another - I wanted my very own "Sir Galahad". I cant promise if it will be a good one, but Ill give my best. It wont be a 1/1 replica too (copyrights!), first and foremost I want to train my abilities in modeling (if there are some).
The hair isnt done completely here, so it may look a bit strange.

Lucas, you are using Green stuff?? And hey, my fault! Come on, you always wanted to sculpt but needed a little kick in the butt to start. If I have done this, great! The more competition, the better. And you have talent so kick a$$ further. Ahem, THE ORDER, isn´t it that steampunkish videogame for PS4??
Shay, your Pooh bear IS way cool! You cannot compare a cartonn character with a "real" life person. I personally think that Pooh and piglet are better than some of my stuff, because they are cute. The Base rocks, it is a friedly, peacefull scene. And you know, I love it!

Impressing, Lucas! Very good. Will it be a full figure?? And hell, what weapon will you scratch!!?? This will look cool when you have finished it! Grmbl, I have to wait for my new Magic Sculpt, cannot do very much at the moment, gargl!
Sorry, dont have the skills for a ful figure - and we have a bust GB going on and Im in a bust rush these days. No... rush is the wrong word, but theres something going on (Pacific Belle and this gentleman here). Mussolini is completed, so theres some bench time left for it.

Blah, Lucas, "don´t have the skills". What are you talking about! If someone can sculpt a torso, he can do the rest, too! So, give it a try sometime! And doing busts, man, what a mess. For me! Now I get more and more ideas for to be sculpted busts, too. Heck, think about reordering more magic sculpt. Or try out Aves...
I experimented a bit with suitable material for straps, belts etc and found out that photograph paper works perfect here. Buckles were made from lead wire and spare PE parts - I bought loads of them on the last expo - for reasons like this. It makes the modelling of delicate areas much easier.
First I tried with notice paper, and wasnt too happy. Cardboard is too thick, and this paper is as good as it looks. Cut it, detail it, done. In the middle there are some holes I drilled with a scalpel, it looks quite realistic that way - namely a bit "bulky" for the 3D-effect -wasnt the intention, but I was positively surprised.

This is awesome...Very inventive useing the photo paper, and the detailing with the PE on the belt looks fantastic! The barrel on that weapon is bad a$$!! Steam punk surprisingly enough is new to me, just googled about a bit and found yet another aspect of the hobby!
The barrel/cooling mantle is made from a biro hull. Initially I wanted to use brass - its thinner and "the real thing", but its harder to work. Maybe I have to get me a small drilling stand or something for reasons like this - drilling such patterns by hand is a bit tricky.
