    Deon's Ultra Noob Sculpture Attempt - <NEW anatomy sculpt>

    Ok - here goes...
    A colleague brought this magical stuff called Super Scupley to work the other day, and I was like AWESOME!! Where do I get me some of that??

    A couple of days later, and I've started my first sculpture project in 15 years!

    Here's my design for my sculpture - an old character of mine...
    I decided to go the whole hog and do a 1:6 scale full sculpture of him - wish me luck!
    Armed with some awesome tutorials, I have almost finished the armature - just need to go get that pesky tin foil tomorrow....
    The head and left fore-arm are designed to come off for easy manipulation later.

    Crits and comments welcome - I have a LOT to learn..

    Starting with a Vitruvioid is a really good idea.

    Joshua - thanks, I got the idea from a tut.
    Mr Animation - you keep me exited

    Okay - so here's tonight's progress...
    I have bulked out the torso and hips.
    I just worry that I bulked the hips too much - oh well we'll see.
    I think modeling my skeleton man on a perfect Vitruvian man may have been a bit of a mistake, because my character has stylistically long legs, so already I can see the the hips may be too low. Next time I will do a sketch-over.
    I totally forgot to bind the foot wires for the base before I put putty on the feet, so I just poked some holes in there - hope that works...

    agrmrs - thanks and no problemo! - here's the next one...

    Sorry - not much progress tonight...
    I spent most of the night fighting with wires that were too thin or too thick, trying to get this bastard mounted to the base.
    I ended up having to do some serious surgery to the feet, but he's mounted relatively solid now, using two twisted loops through the re-shaped foot wires and base.
    More epoxy putty to set the pose in place and ta-da!
    I still need to put feet on the base to lift the twisted wires off my work table....so off to the hardware store tomorrow..AGAIN! Jeesh every time I think I have everything, I get home at night, just to realize I need another something...grrr
    I ordered some sculpting tools online - those should be here tomorrow - just in time so I can sculpt in peace all weekend!! yay!

    MrAnimation - thanks - pro? I dont know about that...

    Ok - tonight's update - got a lot more done tonight, but first some pics of my work area - at last I can just relax and sculpt!
    -I managed to solve my base foot problems with four loop screws. They make for great adjustable feet, so no wobbly statue!
    -I started laying on the under layer of muscle, using my anatomy book as reference - I just have one question about Sculpey - I'm layering quite loose at the moment. Wont that leave air pockets all over the place that could cause problems when baking? I'm just wondering if that is something to be careful of?

    I'm pretty happy so far - I just think the head may be too big - I will see later.
    cheers
