First upload for 2013, yay. Also, first work this year. It's almost finished, but I thought it will be fun to post progress montage earlier.I tried to start sculpting in past year
, but I wasn't able to complete it due to lack of materials and such. Recently I received wonderful gift
and other beautiful sculpture
. It boosted my morale to try it again. I wanted to have Albireo on my shelf as well
I had bulk of Super Sculpey stashed somewhere and I put it to use.
This will be my fist complete sculpture/statue
! I'm really happy about it. Very refreshing experience.
I learned a lot during process, from armature constructions, through sculpting, baking and painting. I made more mistakes than I can count, I had more accidents than I remember now... But somehow it doesn't matter. I love it. I am preparing materials for another one already!
Only thing that puts me down a little-tiny-bit are muscles. Their definition changed from first concept. [cracks, baking accidents, breaks through process]. I was more fond of first version. Still, it's good tho, no whining
P.S. It was fun for me, done completely for pleasure. I wasn't using any real animal muscle reference. Please don't treat it like it's TRUE vision of real being. It's art, not National Geographic.
Anyway, apologies for silence in both notes and comments. I'll be back on track soon.Will go to scraps when finished sculpture will be up!
Super Sculpey, wire armature, many hours
