I didn't realize how difficult it was trying to document a process. I'm trying to make sure I get more photos taken from this point.

I think it took me several sculptures before I felt comfortable enough to start cutting them apart. I always felt I'd be ruining the piece if I did. the beauty of being a figure modeler is that fixing any issues I made in the process should be no problem.

Thanks. I hope others can correct me or help clarify if I'm not making sense. I'm still learning as well and I gain a lot when I see other artists methods.

Well, I wasn't sure if this thread fit in this section or if it would be better in the pitstop. It might be more fitting in the latter.

Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.

Glad to hear. I also enjoy seeing how everyone else works. There have been times where i've found better solutions to my methods from others.

No problem. I did sort of gloss over that mainly because there are so many ways to go about creating an Armature Support. There are some really intricate ways of building them, but I've always been a proponent of "Simpler is better". I'll give a quick run down of my Support tree, but i encourage you to google some other ways because there are better methods than what i use.


The support tree for my Armatures consist of basic galvanized steel plumbing you can get from most hardware stores. I got my materials from Menards.
1/2" base flange
1/2" to 1/4" galvanized bushing
Assorted lengths of 1/4" pipe
Assorted 1/4" couplings (straight, T, corner, etc)
The photo shows a 1/4" threaded bolt, but it can also be swapped out with a 1/4" galvanized cap


The support tree basically gets assembled together as shown in the above photo. Base flange screws into random wood board. 1/2to1/4" galv bushing threads into flange. 1/4" pipe threads into bushing (mix/matched to fit desired height). Topped with either 90 deg coupling or t-coupling with additional desired 1/4" pipe threaded in other end. If you reference my armature photos, you'll notice the middle of the armature body (around ribcage area) has some epoxy putty attached to it. On the backside it has a 1/4" coupling cap stuck to it. That is where the support tree threads into. That's basically it.

I place a cheap Lazy Susan underneath the wooden base of the Support tree to make it easier to spin 360 deg. Hope this helps.
