    Thanks. I am literally 14 so getting all the stuff I need to make a costume or whatever is problematic. I think for now I'll stick with figures, as it's a much cheaper practice. Also I can get hold of used ones pretty easily. But I'm open to any suggestions on getting started.

    Well I'm personally a sculpting advocate, and the earlier you start the better in my opinion :D
    I did my first sculpt at 16. It sort of ended up being a piece of shit, but practice makes perfect :)

    +1, my first paper model many years ago was perfect... perfect for making fire with it)))

    But yeah, Nic is right, practice makes perfect, and you've still got great years ahead of you! :D

    Yeah, it's pretty bad in my opinion ... the helmet is ok, but the rest is waste material.

    As to "how does it work?" I'm guessing you're referring to sculpting. That would start with clay like WED clay (which is cheap waterbased clay, but hardly reusable) or Oil clay like chavant and monster clay (which is more expensive, but reusable). Roughing out the shape of what your sculpting with your hands, and refine and detail the sculpt with tools.

    But you need to try every tipe of sculpting materials. They all have positive and negative sides, so you need to choose material for specific needs. After this you will100% know wich one is better for you (or for each of your works)
    p.s. Helmet if not so bad, even good. But armor looks like an armor of human trooper from the game 2000+ year :D (for me)

    Premo polymer clay, white.

    I think that's a good start. Let us know when you roll up those sleeves and get to sculpting. (y)
