    Smellybugs Maquette Tutorial completed!

    Heya folks, Petey here, aka Smellybug.

    It has been brought to my attention that the 3d/sculpture section could use a tutorial. Well I'm happy to be at your service. I've been in the movie racket for a number of years and have made a lot of creature maquettes. Along the way I've learned a few tips, tricks and techniques and would be helpful to those just starting out, or even a few bits of info that even advanced artists might find helpful.

    I plan to do a supersculpey sculpture in the typical way that I do these things, posting progress and descriptions along the way. You can follow along an make your own or whatever, it's up to you. I probably won't post ever single day, but every few days. Ask questions and I'll try to respond coherently.

    Here's the design I will be doing. Keeping it rather simple in terms of number of parts, complexity etc.

    Tools!

    Here are the sculpting tools I use when making a sculpt of this general size. I figure the model will be between 10 and 12 inches long.

    I've accumilated these tools over the years and they are a mix of store-bought and homemade. Having the same set isn't necessary, it's just about finding out which tools work best for you on a given project. More on how to make your own later. Take a look:

    Btw; Don't forget to pick up one of these calipers. Very essential. I use them all the time when I'm working.

    This tool isn't exactly necessary, but it saves me a lot of time and sore hands. It's a pasta maker, I use it to mix sculpey colors together. This can take a long time if you're doing a lot with just your hands.

    BTW, here's a shot of part of my filthy studio....haha I really need a maid!

    I'll probably use most of them, though a few of them will get the most attention. You'll see. I'll be pretty detailed about what I'm doing once i get going.
