    Hi Mr Animation
    I think that working from well thought out concept drawings will give you a good foundation to sculpt from, so keep drawing lots of poses until you find the pose that you want to use.
    YOu should probably move these thumbs over to your sketchbook and work on them there. That way you will get a lot more crits from the sketchbook folk

    Looking forward to see what you come up with!

    Tester

    Before i start my main project, i think it might be a good idea to test out this Super Sculpey, see how much detail i can have in small objects. Gonna try to discover some cool tricks and techniques. wish me luck...

    ok first the reference... some Jurassic park

    The begining continued...

    This is the idea for my main project, after tons of crappy poses, iv decided to use this one. I really want to have the feel of movement and emotion come out here... looking forward to figuring out the the metal parts.Attachment 906607

    WOW! As in "Holy Crap, that seriously rattled my cage" type wow! Dude that is outrageously cool. Movement, intent, weapon hardwired into her, it's all good.

    And I so want that critter on the warthog. Damn but that is excellent work. For me the indication of top work is that that has everything going for it long before the paint is applied. Fact is a ivory coloured wash would work well on this. Only thing I find slightly distracting from the rider is the blade. Such an excellent piece deserves a fine weapon such as a parang, kopis, sabre or even Kukri style. :-) Cool.

    Waipunga: Hay! gosh, thank you so much for the amazing complament! I have this worry about colouring them in though... the Samurai Panda i cant paint as it was given to a good friend of mine as a gift and now we stay in differant parts of south africa.
    Dam, i wish i had your input before i gave him away that sword idea is awesome! hhehe I would also like to make the brother of the Samurai Panda with the rolls reversed, so the Warthog would be the samurai, riding the Panda.

    Im scered of adding paint to the things i make, as i feal i destroy it (not to skilled with da paint im affraid) need to practice more on that. any tips?

    Im working on this new pice with 2 lions fighting each other, but with this one ill be posting the production.

    Wow... that girl with the bad attitude and the blaster on her arm is pure, sculpting sweetness.... the dino is cute as hell, looks like a baby rapter running for his life...but the sweetest of the sweet is... the bear on the pig....that stands out the most of all to me. It has a concept appeal that touches the heart.
    I don't really like to see the sculpts all painted up. I don't know why we do that. But I do it too,{how's that for irony,}, but I always am moved more by the monochromatic finish of just a solid grey, or sand color, or the beauty of the simple red clay.
    I think more, and more often, that less is more, it may just be the stage of life Im in.....
    So, it's ok if you don't want to paint it, {for the likes of me.}
    Great job, keep'm coming.

    Deon: Thanx man great to hear from you man! any new projects on your side?

    One Eyed Terror: Thank you very much

    Mah ' Crub: Geee, thank you dude! i know! in alot of cases the colour makes the sculptur go from 100% to like 85%, But! one the other side, some cases it makes it go to 125% (I cant do that just yet... T_T). But I love to see it in a base colour though.... makes it more sketchy, like leaving sketch lines on an illastration. I have a few other projects and ill be shoure to post them up for you to check out.

    Hay people

    I'v been working on this guy for a while now he's taken me about 28 hours to make, i gave it to a frind of mine baked and painted and he has a light switch for his chest with a removable light (Yay it worked!).

    I wasnt happy with the actual look of each of the the metal parts, know of any method i should have taken to make better looking armour?

    the next one im making is a nined fox...
