"Dark Knight" by MarkNewman "Dark Knight" by MarkNewman
This is another sculpt I did for Thomas Blackshear's "Ebony Visions" figurine line.

Your work is amazing and very inspirational. 
I have a question if you don't mind how do you get large areas of skin and armor so smooth?
I usually sometimes have to briefly use sandpaper.

I brush the surface down with a soft bristle brush and turpenoid.
I do some light sanding after it's baked. I also use a very fine steel wool and buff it down if needed.

Thank you. I have never used turpenoid before. Does it work better than isopropyl alcohol (rubbing alcohol), because that is what I use to smooth sculpey.

Yes it does. Use it sparingly though as it leaves the surface a bit slimy for awhile.
It will dissipate after a few hours where the surface is workable again.

I actually bought this piece and I do collect some of the "Ebony Visions" line but this is by far my favorite piece.

Tried to leave a comment earlier but it didn't seem to stick?

Anyway, was going to say that I really love this piece. I was curious as to how you made the sword look so good though. Did you make the sword separately and then fuse it his hand for the perfect fit? Something so thin and detailed like that would seem hellish to try and make.
