I would also recommend Aine2, recently bought one of her tutorial. In addition, Nicholas Lodge DVDs. He has one on molding figures, nothing like aine2, but he is a very good teacher. You can find them on his website (don't know how to post it) or at Global Sugar Art.

Cheers!

Other considerations are polymer clay books. There are many around. The work is exactly the same, the medium used differenticon_smile.gif

Lindy Smith has some fondant people in her books with instructions on how to do them. You might want to check them out. Also any polymar clay modeling books dealing with figures will help you. icon_smile.gif
