How to sculpt fantasy miniatures Part 8: Adding leather and chainmail to the miniature


In this installment of the sculpting tutorials we add some significant stuff to the miniature. We sculpt the undergarments and add the chainmail to the 3" figure. I show you some neat tricks about making clothing and adding the clothing and armor to the miniature. An important thing I point out in this tutorial is that you don't need to create the full set of undergarments on the mini. You just have to create the parts that will show around his armor. A good example of this is his leather undershirt. You only see this around the neck of the figure so you only have to make this portion around the neck. I show you how I do this in the video.

Neat tip in the video tutorial: Chainmail is always a challenge and I show you a neat trick for easily getting that great chainmail texture on the armor.
