Oh Dear...again...

Sometimes you get caught up in a sculpt and you keep plodding on in a bid to finish it, even if you know there is something not quite right. That is exactly what has happened with this sculpt and it is a bit annoying because I have essentially finished it but now have to go back and rip its arms off because they are too long:

Click the Pic!

The picture above shows how tiny she is but also it shows just how obviously long her arms are. I will be finishing the other WIP sculpt in the picture before I go back to the first one...as I can't face ripping the arms off just yet.

Oh woe is me :(

On a different note, my little doggies have turned up from E-Bay and they are smaller than I was expecting so I will have to think about what to do with them.

Ah, the ups and downs of the hobbyist!

See you from behind that door...YES...THAT one!

hmm i wouldn't take the whole arm perhaps from the elbow down they look a little too big.

But none the less a great job far better than any effort i would be able to make

The arms were removed at the elbow and the copper wire underneath, shortened. They are nearly finished again but I have to wait for putty to dry at the moment...then it will be thumbs and a tidy up.

She definitely looks better than she did with the big fists and ape arms :D!

I always say that with practice, anyone can sculpt. It just takes practice.

Regarding those khanates... you can always say they are grymns' (advanced) pets!

I was thinking that I could buy a couple of hundred more and have them as Grymn enemies and in horde fashion...

...but what I have could work as allies ;)
