    Creature sculpt WIP

    So this is my first real creature/character sculpture I have done so any tips and crits would be much appreciated as I continue to work on this guy. Im using the super sculpey mix mentioned in Smellybug's tutorial. Also I was wondering, if I have parts such as the head with tin foil in them and I shave away my clay so much that in parts there is a very thin layer of clay over the foil will that result in a problem when baking it?

    I've personally found that sudden changes in thickness (like an area close to the foil right next to an area half an inch thick) might cause some cracking where the two thicknesses meet. I patch this up with epoxy resin.

    I don't know if it was what you were looking for, but I think this guy is really cute! I can't really critique it much at this stage, except to recommend looking at references of animals and people to get the muscles right, but I'm guessing you're already about to do that when you get to the next stage. ^_^ So, basically, I'm looking forward to the update!

    Looks pretty good. I might suggest to take a rake tool and try to even out the lumps on the surface. Looking forward to seeing it finished.

    I find it a little comic! Witch I love it. I just think that the front hands are very disproportional compared with the rest.

    Thanks for the comments guys, here is a little bit of an update. Im still working out all the forms at the moment, afterwards I will go back and even out the surface and everything. But right now the legs are giving me some trouble so any advice would be great. Oh and Kinjiru it makes sense you find it a bit comical since it was actual based off a cartoon character I had to do during an animation course. This was my rough animation test for a walk cycle.
