Stormer, thank you for the feedback, I would be interested for you to elaborate more on the "off Proportion" of our figures. Anything that helps make the sculpting better is a good thing.

An interesting observation from Stormer Robert. I’d also like to see why he thinks your figures are not in proportion. I’ve had issues with some of the Z-M offerings but yours have never given me cause to raise an eyebrow, especially that delightful WW1 mechanic!

The left forearm could be a little longer than it should be to my eye, but it wouldn't be the first one I've adapted to suit.

I will drop that forearm downwards anyway so can lose some length that way if needed.

We're modellers, …….adapt and survive!

It looks good,  I''ll get one for sure.

Its all in the eyes of the beholder I guess...

In my opinion there is a mismatch between head size and body, skinny legs, poor positioning of arms etc. (,in general).

 

But again it might just be me

 

P.s. we've had this discussion on Facebook too Robert

That describes people my friend, Leonardo da Vinci's "perfect Vitruvian man" is rarely achieved!

Stormer,

Thanks for getting back to me, I do appreciate it.

I do take time to measure out proportions when I pose the mannequins prior to sculpting. I also usually use 360 degree photos of me in the pose too. Perhaps I have a big head in proportion to the rest of me :) 

I will continue to keep checking proportions when sculpting and look out for the observations you have made. I recently released the 100th Elan13 Miniatures figure hopefully more are right than not.

Yes, there is no such thing as a 'perfect' human form.

Skinny legs on a larger body you can see everyday if you look around you.

Short  bodies, longer legs? My father had both and he was a big man too!

There are a lot of disproportionate people in this world, take one look at my beer belly and you'll see why!!! :D:rolleyes:

Have fun either way!

Just like the human face is almost always asymmetrical.
