These are my curent sculptures that I'm working on.
A dark elf(110mm to the eyes) and a black orc (170mm to the top of the head).
If any of you have any tips I'll be glad to read them.
The elf is 100% polymer clay(green area=fimo classic) and the orc is a mixture of polymer clay and epoxie putty.

These are great, the elf girl is super hot and the orc is super orc-ish? Great sculpts. Nice chain mail. Lots of detail. Really good stuff.

Thanks Mah ' Crub!
The chain mail is my favorite aspect on the Orc.At first I wasn't sure but after 2 days of work and enough area covered it looks apart.
hey Wow I love your elf really she is beautiful and her hair is amazing,and your orc is spectacular the chain mail is increible ,so clever idea and thanks por sharing whit us.
Man I really love the work. great detail and very inspiring. keep up the great work and keep posting...
can i ask some tips on how you sculpted the hair on your dark elf?
Ok that is one of the coolest looking ocs out there. You dont, by any chance work for Games Workshop do ya?
Here's the avatar Orc.
For normal colors just watch the negative.
renkinjutsushix I made the base shape and then simply added layers opon layers of thin rolled clay sausages.After 4-7 maybe more sausages(yumy!) I sliced them in half with a blunt tool(directly on the model).
MrAnimation Thanks for the compliment . I'm working for myself so far, just a fan of GW fantasy world.
Thanks again for all the feedback!
It's topics like this that make me doubt the whole 'CA doesn't dole out meaningless asspats like DA' thing.
First off, great job on the sculpting. There's a lot that's good about it. It's just that someone might need to point out where it's not going quite right. Since no-one better piped up, I'll have my say. It won't be pretty.
The elf: it looks like you concentrated on the big round breasts and buttocks to the detriment of other parts. The legs, especially the lower legs, are too long. 'But it's an elf' doesn't cut it, it still looks strange. Also, you might be going for an airbrushing cheesecake look, but give her some muscles. Just a hint of definition to break up the tubes.
The muscles and masses of the stomach seem to have been stretched downwards but didn't have anywhere to go, which also results in a strange truncated-pelvis effect. Otherwise, something about the torso seems too 'compact'.
The face is very flat across the brow and cheekbones, with only the nose breaking up the effect. It's very noticeable in the bottom profile pic, and unfavourably exaggerates the deep philtrum, and protruding lips and chin.
The hair is good, but looks strange twisted around itself and her body, with no visible fastenings.
The armour needs a bit more smoothing and sharpening.
More on the orc a bit later...
Whatever,,,, I can tell you as a stone cold leg man, that there is nothing wrong with this girls legs!!!! These are really good and cool sculpts! Keep up the good work! I want to see her finished!
Mah ' Crub
The legs are really fine so far.No need to do extra details on them as she will have long boots and leather pants.
Everything else is well pointed.
Awesome! details and textures are great!
The girl hair is amazing, please make a tutorial!
tedjohn09, I use the normal techniques, nothing out of the ordinary.
shader, I'll make an example with more pictures.It's really easy to to a hair like this, all you need is a little time.

Finished sculpting the orc, and here is some paint:
Skin is slightly more advanced, the rest is just basic colors.
The lady's hand is not mine.
Hey Tomapaul, really great work! Love the details. Just want to point out Dark Elves probably don't stand like that. From her pose, she looks more like an Amazon.
what a nice Orc~~~
I'll get her fixed.
Metal still not satisfys me (I want to be identical with the two metal balls) so I still have to apply several layers of washes. The rest is not finished yet but here's the big picture:
Stunner! Excellent on every level.
We are remembered only by what we leave behind.
You have done a beautiful job on this, so much work!
Mah ' Crub
Thanks all for the kind words!
It's home made.
nice work pl tell me you use different clay
I use polymer clay( FIMO soft or classic) and epoxy resin (Milliput).
I worked with the brush, slowly again. The base went well, I really like it.
WOW! This is AMAZING
That is absolutely fucking badass!!
Love your painting skills!
However I do have some crits.
The humanly shaped nose is rather strange in my opinion.
Warhammer orks have skull-like nose actualy!
I would love to see you paint up the dead human guy, he was fantastic!
Throw some scratches onto the red paint on his armour (the arrows and red skulls). That will push the realism of your paints a lot!
Love your work !
Yeah, the nose is my personal "thing". It's just didn't look evil with the regular Warhammer nose.
Not yet finished...scrathes will be added.

Dang...Disgusting, dangling, drool dude.
Mah ' Crub
Fantastic work! I love the scars and the slobber - totally convincing. Would love to see some more grunge and weathering on the armor tho - it looks a tad bland in comparison with the blood and drool.
