This thread is here as I'm hoping it is the start of getting myself moving fully, I've been making loads of promises but so far have delivered very little.
So here's the plan.
I NEED to start delivering good with my promises, something I fully intend to do seeing as the only company I will work for now is Avatars of war and the very rare test sculpt for Reaper miniatures (found them to be very helpful and supportive).
So what I'm looking at is that now I have simplified who I do any work for I need to sort out my priorities with Troll forged and Ed.
I still need to rework the ganger, at the moment she's still far too light on details for me to be happy to send her to Ed.
Here's the plan so far: - Sort out ganger - zombie Ogre - work on Vampire (strigoi like) - work on giant bat monster.
That's all I've got so far, I like sculpting undead and monsters which I'm sure are more popular.
Though I'm trying to make good on any other work with projects that would prove popular for buyers and bring Ed more revenue for the company.
As for other sculpts, things have been slow, I seem to get a lot of lizardman pieces done, though this is for Gamesday and the second one is Avatars fo war.
I'd like to do more gangers, might sound weird but feeling nervous as I haven't sculpted any female heads and faces in about 8 months, seemed to go into a period where I couldn't sculpt any faces properly. It's left me feeling really worried about turning out any decent female figs.
malika Undead are a fav of mine, quite easy and always fun, I can then branch out from there.

I'm down but think I should send you a deposit in cash as well. Let me get caught up on bills a bit and I'll send some money to start you off.

There's a not to clear photo above and a few more photos in the submission section.
Let me get at least one other sculpt finished before you do anything, I've no doubt my sculpting time will vanish quickly as I have pieces to do for Felix and Gamesday.
If I can at least finish the Zombie Ogre and/or bat monster first then that would be much more preferable, I suppose it's easier too if I can send you three pieces at once rather than just one at a time.
I remember the first time I saw your first ganger girl, and I was thinking to myself, if there is a whole range of this, I am getting myself a girl gang.
Right now you have two. Not enough for a gang, and I personally think what would drive up sales if there were enough to field a gang.
But hey, you should do whatever you like doing right now. There is nothing more annoying than having to do something you don't really want to do. It just doesn't work.
Keep up! You make wonderful stuff.
I'd like to be able to do a whole group too, might sound silly but my confidence in sculpting female faces took a huge hit in the last quater of 2011, I just couldn't get anything facial too work.
I'll be trying heads and faces again soon on that you can be sure.
I do have one head saved which has a definite Escher quality about it, so in theory a third one shouldn't be too hard, I also need to resculpt much of the body (if not all of it) on the second one I did.
