Dwarf bust: #1 removing and sculting

Hello painters out there,

First I want to wait showing you this project because I dont't want to mix them and get a better feeling of the step by step from start to the end.
Because I dont't want to keep this side so long without news I changed my mind.
And also because it looks like I will finish this project first, to much fun with this nice dwarf bust ;-)

today I want to show you the start of my new project. The base is a bust that was given to me by our friend aned memeber Stefan aka SkelettetS. It is a bust of Gotrek by Forgeworld.

I'm a big fan of the books by Markus Heitz, especially the series of "The Dwarfs." So I try to coverd this bust into the dwarf named "Tungdil Goldhand". The point of the timeline I try to creat is out of book 4 when he comes back from Phondrason.

Enough about the story, lets start with the work:

First step is removing the undefined parts on the bottom of the bust and cover them with milliput.
At the same step I filled up the wounds on the back.

Second step is smoothing the milliput:

Following step was removing all texture I don't want to have on the bust:

Stubbles on the head...

...metal rings crossing the wound under the eye...

...rework the ear...

Building a eye patch of 0.,5mm tin plate and sculpting the missing part of the eyebrow.

 Using a string of a guitar as cord for the eye patch.

View fromt the back.

... and rework the gemstones.

Some more convertion has to been done in part 2.

Best regards,
Michael aka Dellolyn
