I've wanted to learn how to use Green Stuff for a while but only just got round to doing it. I'd also like all the DE characters bar the Baron and Decapitator, which meant converting Sliscus, Malys and Vect. Sliscus was easy, but these two were harder. Because I'm still learning I'd love some advice on improving these efforts. First, Vect:

GS here is just extra robes and the staff orb. It's an old model which explains the terrible hair. To Malys:

Basically based off Khalidah and given hair and a cardboard fan. (rear view wasn't good so I'll take another later.) Obvious conclusions:

[list][*]Malys is better than Vect.
[*] The robes need serious improvement.

I'm happy with the staff, but any help would be greatly appreciated.

Best advices that I can give:
  • Never try to sculpt everything in one run, in general 2 stages are minimum.
  • Use rubber tools (either special "clay shapers" or cone-shaped-and-filed rubber end of pencil).
  • For smoother surfaces (like robes) work with half-cured putty.


I hope that wopuld help.

Also, here is selfmade rubber tool (pencil+glued rubber). You obviously can make different end, like sharp cone, ball, "knife", spatula etc. To make it smooth use wet cloth as last "sandpaper".

I hate the old Archon. I don't think any amount of modeling with make him look as good as the new one. As to your Malys, your picture is blurry.
