Multipart helmet question
I'm new to the site and school, and burning through some sculpture tutorials while waiting for a bunch of supplies I've ordered to come in.
One of the things high on my to-make list is a helmet. It's part of a design experiment I'm doing to reimagine the Stormtrooper armour, and I'd really like to get a helmet in multiple hinges, with a faceplate that hinges up. Visually it won't look like the Iron Man helmet, but as a reference, a similar "helmet in multiple pieces" kind of thing. So my question is this:
What's a good way to sculpt a helmet that will be in multiple (2, probably, but maybe 3) pieces? Should I sculpt them separately and then hope they come together? Sculpt in one single piece and cut it up? My intent is to mould the pieces, if that helps.
