Baby Sea Turtle...Updated 8-30-08 Painted Piece
This is my first time posting a sculpture here. It is also my first 3d sculpture done in Sculpey. I know it is really nothing special or really detailed. I am still learning and trying to improve. I have learned so much from all the wonderful artists here though, so Thank You all for posting your sculptures and tips.
The baby sea turtle is life size at 2½ inches tall.

I think it's adorable. What did you use for the eyes? I really should try to do something cute like this instead of always trying to do monsters.

LOL Thanks! I need to try monsters I really love the evil things, but I love cute things too.
I used hand blown glass eyes...7 mm size in dark amber color. I get mine on ebay from a seller named jncshop. They have all sizes and colors, even split pupil for frogs and reptiles. Do not get the plastic eyes though, they will melt in the oven if you are using sculpey!

I think the curves and the shape overall are awesome. Details like texture are just decoration, but the form is really sweet. Something seems to be wrong with the shape of the egg, but the turtle itself shows some great work and understanding.

Kilh- Their eggs are round and kind of leathery so when the babies hatch, the eggs arent round anymore, they kind of stretch a little That may be why it looks odd.

Nice little sculpt - and in my opinion the word is "cute".
Come on - you can do it - lets see some cute paint as well ;-)

I'm quite certain with a dose of imagination and a little paint, this cute, lovable hatchling could be transformed into a vile, slavoring carrier of infectious undersea-rabies. It all comes down to vision.
And if this is your first sculpt, it shows a strong start and a careful hand. I'm looking forward to seeing more.
... a cry went up into the shuddering air, and faded to a shrill wailing, passing with the wind, a voice bodiless and thin that died, and was swallowed up, and was never heard again in that age of this world.

Absolutely adorable! I think it's very well done, so don't be too hard on yourself. I'm still only on my second sculpt, hope my third can be cute like this one!
