Very Early stages just getting the general feel and Structures in place before I start to sculpt the details over them.

She is going to have x2 wine bottles in her hands one held in a thrown position an smoke attaching her to the base as if she has swoped in to launch and Molotov cocktail at her foe

Started detailing over the Gremlins cleavage and sculpting the top over her boobs kinda hard to see detail at that scale in the pics

Added a green stuff nosecone to the jetpack and some clock work parts to the wings as well as extending the smoke fumes from the exhausts!

certainly you'll want something the rough structure if your trying to make a point. u can use anything abit of spru even strong wire juse to make the tip firm. secondly flesh out the area with green stuff and use fingers and water to get it near the shape you want don't worry about any excess coming down past where you need it sharp scalpel kept clean and wet will cut that to shape it is easy to clean up if there is to much on one side simply use your Model Clipers and pinch off the extra then you will need a large SILICONE brush and you start smoothing it out and polishing it.

alittle bit of water or saliva on brush and polish away push down then drag up use the widest flattest silicone brush u can find work around the cone in circles then work back the opposite direction in circles then work up and down verticaly hit one side then opposite and work around it like that hit it from every direction keeping it flat and level and slowly working it leave it to firm up when your happy with it and come back and hit it again in like 45-90 mins. the green stuff will be firming up and hardening but still be plyable and you can realy push hard now at tip and work it up into a point. this is when that hard skeletal structure your glued in place realy helps :) if there is a decent frame under the tip to support you pushing and smoothing it then just and continue to polish it smooth out the shape you want :) Silicone brushes are amazing aid to polish up green stuff smooth out joins so there flawless! they inscrease your skill loads!

Finaly a Video im happy with the quality of my camera skills/equipment is getting beter lol

The finished product. Gonna clean up abit of the grime/texture that I added to look like rusted metal. I added abit to much on one of the wings in particular other than that she is ready to paint.

thanks jimbo Im not 100% sold on the smoke either but I drilled and pinned it into her face :(! Dnt fancy removing it I hope paint could realy make it pop and draw the attention away from it!

Im not sure I agree with the angle thing tho if you consider she is "BLOWING" smoke out the side of her mouth and also the angled propulsion of the Jetpack it would drag down in that sort of arc/line ish... kinda... maybe... I don't know???? LOL
