Thanks guys! This is a resin cast and I've made molds so if anyone wants one let me know!

Went to school for Claymation (TM). Would be willing to trade clay tips for knowledge about sculpting wrinkles.

Don I'd be happy to chat. Did you have specific questions about sculpting wrinkles? I've been doing digital and traditional sculpture for 10 years or so for both video games and film so I've been lucky enough to work around and learn from some very talented career veterans. Feel free to PM me or post your inquiries here.

Cool, man!  When you're sculpting the fold of a fabric, do you find that you're mostly doing additive or subtractive sculpture? The kind I'm most interested in is subtractive, or the kind of wrinkling effect you can make by carefully placing indentations created by a sculpting tool. Just not sure what kind of shape the tool should be or the rules for making such intentations to appear wrinkly.

Looking at this figure, I think it reflects the fact that wrinkles in cloth (or leather boots) need to be both additive and subtractive.  When you consider that there is a leg under the trouser fabric, you can't take away the hollows so much that the flesh inderneath would be carved away, so the folds bulging up are probably the more important.  A good question Don!   I think I have a tendency to do too much subtractive and not enough additive.   These ones are really nicely done, now that you've drawn my attention to them.  If I had gone to art school 40 years earlier I probably would have been made to draw the drapery on plaster casts of classical sculptures, which I would possibly have sneered at - but would have learned a lot from.

Agree 100% with stopmoNick. I find that whatever type of cloth has been sculpted I can always tell if the artist worked exclusively subtractively. I guess sometimes that method works, but often time it just looks like the lazier method in my opinion and it always shows in the end result. In fact in my research I've noticed that the real pros (I'm definitely not putting myself in this category) use both methods consistently.
