    Purplecat's sculpts

    Some recent works, which I'm somewhat pleased with, but would really love to improve further. I started sculpting just over a year ago, and it's been a rewarding effort. I've been spending alot of time sketching more, and studying animal anatomy, I'm looking forward to seeing how it affects my work.

    Those are pretty good. They remind me a lot of Windstone sculptures.

    I hope you don't mind me asking, but what kind of paint did you use to get the metallic look?

    the paint is your average craft metallic acrylic paint and some Golden brand interference paint. It may look more metallic because when I shot photos of her sculpts there ended up being a bit of glare from the lighting.

    yup, there is some glare in these photos, but it's ordinary metallic paint applied with an airbrush, with interference violet on the siamese cat for a nice effect. I stink with a camera, and it's only grace of Koishii that the photos came out so well!

    I've been fortunate enough to add a few of the older Windstone sculptures to my ever-expanding gargoyle collection, so I'm familiar with the style. However, while you might have followed a similar process, your artistic voice shines through. And what vibrant colors. The palette you've chosen seems to fit each creature quite nicely.

    Of the series, the lounging "dragon dog" (I apologize for my crude interpretation) is my favorite. Lots of personality in the posturing of the beast. It projects a strong feeling of "just let me rest for a minute."

    ... 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.

    thank you so much. The lounging critter is something I've been calling a Tatzelcat, kindof a scaled lion thing. He's one of my favorites too!

    Hello purpletabby,

    Wow, I'm really impressed, you can certainly tell that you've been hard at work studying animal anatomy, which is something I find pretty difficult to get my head around at times! But anyway, what I like most is the texturing and the way you sculpt makes them look very sleek indeed. You have a distinctive style my friend. And is that acrylic ink that you use? And btw could we see some sketches that you've done? I love to see sketches!

    Well done you! :-)

    certainly! Though I must confess that my sketching ability is pretty crappy still. I've been a lurker here for a while, and have only recently started focusing on improving my sketching regularity and quality. I'd read the advice on sketching here, and on using references, and had also been encouraged by koishii to start using them to improve my sculpting. I'll have to start a thread in the sketchbook forum here.
