    I startet of with SS, but suffered all kinds of humiliation when frying the clay (burns, chips, cracks). I tried spicing the SS up with 50% SS-firm - and all my problems dissapeared! (might just be a coincidence ;-). The main problem (as I see it) with SSF, is making slight changes in the overall shape of the muscle, arm or whatever, as the SSF makes that close to impossible.

    Hey Bud

    I just want you to know that I'm not the one who thought of this technique because it's been round for quite some time.. although I have no idea who started it! I remember looking at some sculptor dude adding small strips to his sculpt many years ago and it took me a while to understand why back then but it makes complete sense. It's a great way to ensure accuracy in anatomical structure. I now own a book where this other dude does the same, and in fact every time I see a demo they usually use the same technique! May as well follow the sheep eh? Heh.

    And the legs I find are the most challenging part of the whole sculpt. Maybe because I find it complicated to understand at the moment. So I just hope I get it right! I'll post some more pics soon as I've detailed most of the right leg.

    Oh and thank you for your advice on mixing the sculpey.. keep that in mind!

    Many thanks again my friend

    Best wishes!

    And thank you

    I am also not sure who started this practice but i notice that a lot of the top sculptors use it to perfection. This is the way that the shiflett bros. work also. Kenshiro whatever it is you are doing you are doing it really well my friend.

    Hey Otta,

    Heh heh.. thank you very much friend it means a lot to me!

    You use this as reference? Great! The thing is I don't know how accurate the anatomy is on this is thing, but I do hope I have got it correct! (I do try very hard getting it looking right lol)

    Bets wishes!

    Heh heh.. I'm glad it can serve you as some form of refererence my friend and yes, I find 2d reference difficult to understand sometimes. I was thinking one day of making a 'normal' human body sculpture that I can use as refererence. Think that would be a good idea!

    Best wishes friend.

    Unbelievable!

    And of course, with the birth of the artist came the inevitable afterbirth - the critic.

    Impressive! The creative work of all the skin scales has had to be very tough. I love the face, and the details are fabulous. What is the tool that you use for minimal details?.
