Illidan torso update

A quick update on the torso of Illidan from World of Warcraft… I think I’m finally getting the hang of working with FUSE. Mineral spirits knocks it down nicely, going to use Gary’s castor oil idea next. I’m not too terribly happy with the anatomy of the hand, but I want to keep pushing along with this sculpt. I will add some longer nails on him, I want his hands to look slightly oversize and paw-like. I’m also keying his arm to make casting this piece a bit easier for me. I’m adding some leather straps to his wrist later. I may just cheat and use real leather for it and cast it from that. I need to work on his horn, I think the base of his horn that goes into his skull is a bit too big. The pics also make his ear looks smaller than it is. They are very very long, will be keyed and cast separately. I think the beauty of wax, and perhaps FUSE in particular (this is the only wax I ever used) is that I can get such clean lines cut into his body where his tattoos are. More updates in a few days. Critiques are especially encouraged. Gary, I love your wax. I will use ZEN on his bottom half, can’t wait to get to it…
