Anyone got them? Are they worth getting?

I'm specifically looking at the Aragorn Marks and Jacques-Alexandre Gillois ones as they are with Fimo and I just started working with that material.

I can tell you now already, I wish I had done that a long time ago! So much more relaxing to work with than with Green Stuff! :D

Hi i have the following

Basic sculpting is rubish :doh:

Aragorn Marks are great but the guy is too good and too fast for me

Miniature Sculpting with James Van Schaik is my favourite he uses GS, the video has a gradual learning curve that can give good information to all even if you dont know how to sculpt.
From making the frame to shape forms and final details you have all that.

Aragorn is awesome but to me you need to be already a sculptor

Thanks Panda!

Not that I'm not interested in the Gs one but as I am working with Fimo at the moment those tutorials have my interest! Do you have the DVD versions or the downloads? I find 50$ a lot for a dvd so want to know a bit more before I decide to buy any...

Too fast you say? Maybe play them in slowmotion?! :mrgreen:

i have the download version

You will see Aragorn is just too good for video he makes sculpting look too easy and then reality hits you in the face :lol:

those 3 videos are great

I've only seen one from Aragorn Marks and it's very good but the guy is so good and so fast that it may be a bit discouraging for some. Haven't seen any others though...
