Detailing again today. Added a Braided Headband, a Necklace, added to his beard, as well as finished up the Hilt of the Sword. I also announced a special gift to those who purchase my Instructional DVDs from now till I run out of them... I printed up different sketches I made a few years ago to sell at an art show in Great Falls Montana. I have probably 50 of them.. differing in subject matter. Just an incentive to buy my DVDs...

Detailing again today. Added two belts. One that wrapped around his waist, and a belt over that one that holds his Sheathed Sword. I'm going to rework the beard a little and trying to decide on arm bands or not and a Viking design on the base. I still have a couple of weeks of detailing to do before I start creating the Instructional DVD on "Creating a Northmen/Viking"

Changed the positioning of the Battle Axe. I believe the new position actually improves the design and flow of the figure of the Viking. Started the hand holding the Battle Axe, and added the beginnings of a leather wrist wrap. Then I took a brush and with lighter fluid, started to smooth the clay, of the face and the figure.

Nearly finished the Viking's Shield today. Added Runes to the shield/s front side. Nearly finished the Battle Axe and adding the placement of the sword. Lots of working the clay yet. Still rough, but it's getting close to being finished.

Really short video today.. Had a 5 hour power outage right in the middle of me working on the Viking. Hard to sculpt when you haven't light to work with.. 28 degrees outside so couldn't work on my porch... There will be much more tomorrow...

The Tease was hiding how I created the Robe in the Wind effect. That's on the Instructional DVD. I mostly worked on the robe today, working in around his legs and body and across his chest. I have a lot more detailing on the robe to do. Decided not to put a helmet on his head. I want to portray him in camp when a sudden North Wind and rain hits him and he's trying to shield himself from it's affects.

I am to the point of the creation of this figure that I'm getting into some of the things I do, that took me years to figure out, to go onto the next step. I've put 50 years of my sculpting career into my Instructional DVD and this one is one of those tricks I came up with for the next step. Sorry to tease you with this... but if I reveal all in my Youtube videos.. I'm sharing stuff that others are paying to see.
