The idea

Cleaning up and get the right proportions/dynamic

building up, it’s looking still messy I know
using Apoxysculpt and green stuff, so the figures will turn from grey to green during the progress.
using the two together results in getting the right consistence to work with, it stay just that little bit longer soft and get the right hard surface I need to work with afterword’s.
Green Stuff is very sticky and elastic , but never getting real hard.
Appoxy sculpt isn’t sticky and becomes very soon hard and corny to work with.
You can mix them like you wont, I preverb 60% Apoxy and 40 % green stuff getting the light green colour. But just experiment with it, you can do amazing things with it.

Hi Jan, looking great but if you don’t mind I have 2 questions/remarks: is the left arm of the guy left rear a bit to long (the part from elbow to wrist) ? And if running, do those hats stay on this way, no flapping of the hat brim? (That’s the problem I have while cycling with a hat to protect me from the sun)

Questions and remarks are always welcome, comparing the arm to my dummy’s it’s anatomic correct. Maybe the photo isn’t that good reference, but wenn painted and the optical error remains I will no doubt to cut it shorter. For the hats, probably you have a point. Other wise I have to start some ware, the latest hat (Rear Right) is coming as closest to the reality I think. Still a way to go :sweat_smile:

Hi Jan, what about some Aussie Bush hats, very close/ similar cut to the Belgian style?
