Good stuff, definitely something worth knowing.The difficulty is attempting to make every chain link look similar.
This is the best approach I've seen so far. Thanks for posting these. Wink

cool . just a question admiral , after you have done the chains or the pearl , how many time do you wait until you put it on the model . do you do it immediatly or do you wait some time ?

Thank you!

@Timothy Archer: Ah, sorry, I should've probably written that in the tutorial. All the tutorial sculpts are done on a flat base for clarity (no curvature cutting line of sight, or surrounding details to distract the eyes), but i never remove them to use on a model. They just stay on the base. The similar parts on models are done in the exact same way as in the tutorial, but fastened to the models themselves. Happy

ok thanks , that was a mistake i didn't know about . i always try to create things on a flat base and then to put them on the model , and they get all the time destroyed in the process . thanks
