In todays post I'm focusing on sculpting larger shoulders to beef up their upper body, merging head and shoulder hair, creating eyebrows and putting the final touches in place.
My Warders are now at a point where I'm happy to field them until I'm ready to touch brush to primer.
I start by laying some green stuff over and around his shoulders at a thickness I like. Then, I smooth and shape it so it has the form I want the falling hair to have.
Next I just press and carve lots of streaks into the hair. At times, I poke upward to create definition where the hair layers.
Unlike my other Warders, I didn't give this guy hair up top until after the shoulders. This lets me layer his head hair over his shoulders to add a little variety.
(Business up front, party in the back.)
I also covered his basic eyebrows with some hair.
Not much different here.
Worth pointing out though, is even with hair, watch the details already on the model.
While a lot gets covered up by the hair, look at his back and see how on this guy I've left his right shoulder strap in place and carved hair on either side of it.
Another difference is to create strongly defined cuts that pull the hair away from the bulk. On this guy's rear shot you can see hair that's flowing towards the center of his back.
