Well here is my first serious attempt at sculpting.
Its is supposed to be a Nac Mac Feegle (also known as Pictsies, the Wee Free Men, the Little Men, 'Person or Persons Unknown, Believed to be Armed', and occasionally 'The Defendants'), from the Discworld books.
I wasn't going for any Feegle in particular (which is a bit of luck as he doesn't look like any of them ), but just the general look.
I still need to re-work around the eyes and do something with the hair.
He was sculpted using DAS clay stuff, but isn't great to work with as it does tend to crack and has a very rough texture.
Scale is 1/1, as the Nac Mac Feegle's are only 6 inches high. The head measures at about one and a half inches tall.
any comments and suggestions welcome (even give up ).

Andy
P.S I can really recommend the book Derek mentioned in his thread. Great book, thanks Derek.

HI Andy,
I have just one thing to say................give up
Seriously this is a very good first attempt (spoken with surprise ) I bet the fingers and toes will be really difficult.

Makes me want to have a go, but I ought to actually get some aircraft models done.

Nice first attempt Andy, I'm gonna have a go in the new year ONCE, I've had a read of that book Derek has recommended. I still think mine will come out looking like blobs, or like drut from Trapdoor..
