Two Days of Detailing

Started this video on Monday, then worked on it again on Wednesday evening. Just basically detailing the Mountain man's shot pouch, and adding the powder horn. I decided to hang it differently since the change of design. The way it was hanging before, it was in plain sight.. but when I added the lady, she hid it. So just switched the way it hung on the Mountain Man's shoulder.

Working on the Blanket and Dress of the Woman

Just adding clay to the trade blanket the Mountain Man is covering his Indian Wife with. Then I work on the dress of the lady, giving the dress an uneven bottom. Then I added temporary feet. That's pretty much it.

Adding a Fur Cap - Eyes - and a Blanket

Started this video on Saturday night just before Fathers Day. I talk about my mom, then I get to work on the clay of the Mountain Man and his Indian wife and baby. I start by adding a fur texture to the man's cap. Then I change the direction of her eyes by reworking her eyelids. Finally I add the blanket he'll be covering her with.

Getting Closer Together and Getting a Title

Worked on getting the Mountain Man's wife a little closer... started re-working her dress, adding more folds in it... Changing the angle of his head and body several times. Think I've got it now. Lastly I added his missing arm. I'm working on a title for it. "More Precious Than Gold" is the updated title as of this listing. If you want to see these two figures being created from scratch, you can purchase the 2 Instructional DVD's I made on each one. "The Mountain Man" DVD and "Indian Woman With Baby is the other". On my blog page you can get them in the upper right column where the "Buy Now" button is.

Stressful Changes and Chopping

Really went to work on changing the design of the clay of the Mountain Man and his Wife and baby. I had to attack the clay, and get rid of most of the Mountain Man's blanket that once covered his head.
