    My very first (finished) + my second sculpey creature

    Here are some photos of the "work in progress".

    My very first (finished) + my second sculpey creature


    My very first (finished) + my second sculpey creature


    And here is the sketch that the sculpture is based upon (the creature is entirely a product of my imagination ^^)


    My very first (finished) + my second sculpey creature

    My scanner is acting up, so the sketch didn't turn out that well when it was scanned, but you can see the general idea.

    So, now I'd be very happy to get some crits, since this is my very first I see it more as an "experiment".

    the experiment was a success, fruitdot. your beginning shows a lot of potential. keep it up! one question though, how does your creature move since its two legs are one infront of the other?

    All right Fruitdot!!
    So you (finally) made it.
    Off to an interesting start.
    You need to get your camera to focus on the horse-creature - not the sofa ;-)
    Godt gået kammerat!!

    Thanks, I'm very glad you like it!

    It doesn't move. It's a tree-creature, the legs are tree-trunks. I guess it roots to the ground and awaits its prey. That's what the flower on the head is for- to attract the unknowing victims. :p

    No, honnestly I haven't really thought of it. xD I just thought it looked cool. :p

    An attempt at a more "detailed" picture,
    but my camera is bad at getting good focus on close-ups... :/

    By all means - stick to your treetrunk-explanation. Its your creature after all...
    Just to warn you: I ended up buying a new camera - it can be a pretty expensive hobby this one ;-)

    Thanks for the tips guys!

    So, the creature is progressing. At the moment I am working on the flower and the vines on its head. ^^

    Here's a photo of the flower on its head. I tried cropping the photo, but I apparently don't have PS on this computer so I had to use MS Paint. :/ And it didn't turn out that well...

    My very first (finished) + my second sculpey creature

    So I took another photo from a farther distance, and then zoomed in instead. The details are more visible on this photo.

    Okay, here are a couple more photos, with better focus than the previous, of my creature and its progression.

    My very first (finished) + my second sculpey creature

    My very first (finished) + my second sculpey creature

    Wow, this whole sculpting business is just way too much fun! ^^

    Anyway, thought I might share the background to this creature. I first created it in 2003 and called it "Växtdemon" or translated "Plant demon". Then I found my original sketch a few weeks ago and redrew it; added some things and took away other things and made the creature more detailed.

    In 2003 I had also written some "facts" about the creature. They were:

    "Lives in tropical rainforests. Is often misstaken for a tropical plant. The flower on its head attracts insects which the demon devours."

    Length: approx. 1,2 metres
    Weight: 15-20 kilograms
    Diet: Different kinds of insects



    Just thought it could be fun to share.

    Also, in 2003 I drew a total of 12 "demons". It'll be interesting to see if I decide to sculpt them all.
