I recently picked up a book called Pop Sculpture and have been blown away by the amount of information inside. This was the book I wish I had a loooong time ago as it covers (or at least touches on) practically every aspect of sculpting from start to finish. It even has a section on making joints for action figures! This book approaches sculpting from the larger scale and their favored sculpting medium is wax based products but the techniques are relevant to almost every scale. So much is covered in this I feel like I hit the jackpot, this is amazing stuff and I cannot recommend this any higher. If you get a chance swing by their blog spot and see whats going on over there, the book is excellent but the blog is always being updated with interviews and behind the scene pics so it's like getting a double whammy.
Hope you get to check it out!
