Here's another sculpting video I put together. Thanks to my wonderful computer "geek" son for helping me through this still unknown territory. There's some things I would have changed in editing, like possibly not spending so much time on sculpting the armature but more overall construction of the piece. Ancora imparo!

Getting projects wrapped up for the MFCA/APG Show in a few weeks. Here's a piece inspired by a painting that I grabbed off the interenet. Unfortunately, I am unable to find the artist name or title of the work. The musketeer accessories are from "Glory" miniatures and the AIRFIX English Civil War plastic kits. The head is from Hornet. Painted in acrylics.

As I said in a previous post, I took some liberties in the depiction of these subjects, but for those wondering why Frederick is not on a white horse like the illustration. There is a story that just before the battle, an aide to Frederick, traded horses with the "Great Elector" so as to be not so conspicuous riding on such an obvious target.
