I'm glad to see you're still around and leave comments and feedback :)
@Malevengion - yes, I also hope it is from the forced perspective. When I have Artemis in front of me and turn her around, he head looks proper sized to me...
I hope it's not just my biased impression though.
@ Marshal_Argos - thanks!
I agree in the last version it was looking funny, with the legs rather on the "fat" side. But as mentioned, riding a dragon is a rather windy and chilly affair ;)
So I'm using WWII era style pilots uniforms as patter, and they were quite bulky and padded. So hopefully today's update will balance this out, as the upper body got its padded jacket and a hood.
As for the gender, he is supposed to be male.... :-/
Well, lets see what I did over the weekend.
Here you can see the new padded jacket and the fur lined hood.
I think it now looks a lot more balanced.
One last item I created last night is the spear-tip and a floating banner - I can tell you, doing this with natural clay is very different from greenstuff :-P
Still need to do the hands, add details like additional belts, a sword and probably a shield and maybe some other "stuff" :)
I hope you like today's update and I look forward to your feedback and comments.
