Hello fellow brethren's.

I thought that i should share some of my knowledge with you all and post a tutorial for the first time
on these boards. And bear with my spelling, i am not a native english speaker. :P

Things needed:

Toothpick('s)
GW sculpting tool
Lubrication ( used Vaseline )
Greenstuff

In every step i use the gw tool and the lubricant to smooth the gs, and i always keep the toothpick lubricated too.

Step 1

Take an appropriate sized lump of greenstuff. This was a leftover from when i did some sculpting on my lord.
Posted Image

Step 2

Shape the lump a bit like a hand, or rather a paw shape actually.
Posted Image

Step 3

Now take your toothpick and make a hole in each of the "finger" spots.
Posted Image

Step 4

Take smaller piece of gs..
Posted Image

Step 5

Roll the gs to a cylinder, and then start rolling only at one of the edges...
Posted Image

Step 6

Until it becomes a cone-like shape.
Posted Image


Step 7

Cut the cone at a good length.
Posted Image


Step 8

Attach the cone to one of the sockets on the hand.
Posted Image

Step 9

Bend the cone with a smooth tool.
Posted Image

Repeat step 4-9 until all the sockets are filled.

Step 10

With a little poking around to style the hand it can end up like this.
Posted Image


And here is how it can look applied to a model.

I like it a lot.

It's fast, simple and gets you good results.

I especially like how you used it to build the fanged mouth onto the chest plate and the shoulder pad.

Let's hope some Librarium staff shows up and asks you if you want it up there. I think it's definitely worth it! ^^

You know you've been modeling too much...

When you slice yourself open with a hobby knife but the fine layer of superglue that coats you from the elbows down seals the wound before any blood can come out.

And then you note the Larraman organ is working particularly well today.
