Doc Butchers victim ... sorry, patient.



I finished off the operating table last night whilst doing some other bits and bobs. All I really needed to do was to add a drip stand and a line. Overall I'm quite please with how it's all come together. Next up for 462 Field Ambulance is some stretcher bearers but I've got a few other things I need to get done first.

Damn, you go above and beyond for your army sometimes. That's just freaking awesome :)

Looking good sir! Though I would suggest filing off the nobby bits on the respirator. Right now it looks more like a hostile environment air purifier instead of an oxygen mask.

But other than that, sweeeeeet...

That's certainly some beautiful work there, but if you don't mind me saying, there's something unnaturally static about the piece. I get that he's unconscious, but he's also quite stiff looking. I believe the isue is that he's too perpendicular: both his head and his feet are sticking straight up in the air, and that's just not a relaxed position.

Granted, I'm not knocking the piece--as it's amazingly well crafted. I'm just trying to offer some constructive criticism. Keep it up!

Very nice work. I have to agree about the pose being stiff i think his feet would be lolling to either side if he were unconsious. Or maybe set a helmet between his feet as if it's been left there so when he's fixed up it's not left cluttering up the OR.

A bit stiff, but really nice stuff, I really can't wait to see those stretcher bearers.

I want to preface by saying that the fig looks really quite good as-is. However, I'm from a medical background and am OCD, so hopefully you don't mind some feedback...
1. Your incision area is starting about 2-3 ribs above the tip of the sternum and looks to travel down just past the navel. It's a little too high for doing bowel/stomach work and a little too low for heart/lung, especially if they were going to spread the ribs. Also, it's just so... clean. It's vertical, perfectly centered, and straight.
2. The cut seems a little... too clean. It's centered, vertical, clean and straight. It looks like a clinical liver transplant rather than a battlefield shrapnel removal.
3. While you have an area drape, there's not any other tools set on or in him. Some skin clamps, swabs, scalpel or other such could add some details. Also, the area drape should be larger or the opening smaller.
2. Where are his pectorals and ribs? Right now you have a slight bulge for the stomach, but there's nothing going on for the chest.
3. The guy would have to be heavily sedated or comatose for that kind of incision. I think the mentioned tension is somewhat in the feet but mostly in the hands. I'd have the hands open and loose, not clenched. Pillow chocks to keep the head from lolling would also be good.

Cheers!

Mucho kudos! This fig looks great, can't wait to see him painted up!

Cheers guys, hopefully I'll have it painted up soon.

On the stiffness, yeah, totally agree, that's what happens when you glue your casualty before puttting him on the stretcher. You live and learn.
