OK, here as promised are some wip pics of the entire process I'll go through to customize this coarse jaw.
No pussy-footing around, time to chop off the foot!
As you can see there's a plastic peg within the leg and it's filled with a soft powdery resin. I removed the resin but leave the sole slightly on.
Here I'm carving away the shorts to accommodate the new design. Here you can see lots of the old resin. I'll leave most of it there and just cover up with the new harder Magic Sculpt resin.
Now that I've carved away everything I need for the moment it's time to fix the fit. I fill in the empty sneaks with my magic sculpt and use the sneaks as molds. Essentially I'm creating feet with the negative space.
With the shoe filled with Magic sculpt I place it back on the peg and wait for the resin to harden.
Once enough time has passed I cut away the sneaker top exposing the new resin. I leave the sneaker sole. This will eventually become the sandal of the character.
Here the new foot has been revealed. In this stage it is just blocked out but it's now a more appropriate size in relation to the sneaker. It's the size the coarse noop's foot would be if he took off his sneaker.
Here I've removed more vinyl and sculpted the new pants on one side.
Filling the other sneak with resin
Both sneakers blocked out and new pants sculpted.
And here I've sculpted the socks, sandals and begun the shin guard on one side.
That's it for now.
More to come.
