Hey all,

This is a figure sculpt I've been working as gifts for my two sisters. They were both members of a rather unique high school drill team back in the 70's. They were called the kilties and were based on Scottish marching units. This one is going to be a drummer and I'll do another one that isn't. I started by using a Diamond Select figure as a armature. I'm not totally sold on the job I did for the skirt pleats. What do you guys think? Any critiques and or suggestions are greatly appreciated, I'm very new to figures.



Here is a pic of what their uniforms looked like. Colors are red with white belts and a traditional Scottish red plaid kilt and sash. Not sure how I will do on the plaid pattern but it should be a fun challenge.



Thanks,
Bill
