well...one of them.
this bust is my first attempt at sculpting the humanoid form. it stands just under 4cm in height and is made from polymer clay, the eyes were painted with acrylics and the sculpt given a wash of diluted black acrylic to pick out the details and give him that authentic grubby Mac Feegle look.
i was originally going to sculpt the whole Feegle but i didnt have enough clay so he ended up as a bust (o/h wouldnt let me drill a whole in his head to attach a hook so i could turn him into a tree ornament Undecided )


showing the back and bottom


i created the sculpt around a notched cocktail stick (the sanded end of which is the pale circle visible on the base)



i know it has its faults but im still new to sculpting so im pleased with this and feel i've learnt a lot from this project Smiley advice or comments are more than welcome

This is fantastic!  I never would have guessed it was your first try at a face.  You did a wonderful job, and I can almost here him shouting "Ach, crivens!"!

This is amazing work!  Likewise, this does not look like first-time efforts.  I have had limited success w/ sculpting thus far and am mightily impressed.   And I love your choice of the Pictsies for a subject!  Was this a particular Feegle?  Rob Anybody?  Crivens indeed!  Keep up the amazing work.

unfortunately not. i thought trying for a particular likeness especially for a first attempt might be a little too adventurous Embarrassed
