    Hi,

    This sculpting course is Filled with valuable information! I especially appreciated the emphasis on patience and scientific thinking to make a good anatomical inner construction.

    There is one thing I wonder about. This sculpture has much wrinkles over its surface that helps to clearer show its forms. But how does one do with a creature that is more smooth, like a human body with some underskin fat? My sculpture often looks good under lamplight, but out in daylight many forms become invisible because they are so subtle. I don't know how to exaggerate forms without distorting. For example, if the muscles of the human are exaggerated the body will either look lean and wiry or else overly muscular. How does one do exaggerations for better clarity?

    Hey smellybug, good stuff man, I usually use supersculpey but have recently become interested in using chavant (cm-50 the hard stuff) lately and Im wondering what techinques work for smoothing out and doing all the finishing work with oil based clays, can you use alcohol on it and stuff like that?

    Hey there smellybug, we met briefly at the workshop in austin this summer and you mentioned that you sculpted some of your maquttes and production pieces out of chavant clay, my question is how do you do the final smoothing of the piece, say like a 15" character with like semi-muscular anatomy, its usually nice once you have sculpted the anatomy and wrinkels to go back over the piece with some kinda of solvent( like you show here with turpaniod for sculpey) how do you deal with this in Oil based mediums like the hard chavants.

    Thanks for all the inspiration!
    -Kris

    I have a few questions about sculpey, so... what is the purpose of mixing? just to get the right colour? or is there something else. and also is it one of those clays where you can just add water and smooth out the little bumps and things like that? and what is the average price?

    Hey cloak, well for the color there are 2 main reasons, first its nice to sculpt in opaque colors so you can see the surface better, super sculpey comes in this real translucent skin color that can be decieving as to what the surface detail is, it will look great then you cook it and all of a sudden it doesnt look the same anymore because most of the translucency is lost when you cure it in the oven, So I mix mine with promat or I think its called preme now, mix with black till you get the shade of grey you like.

    The second reason to mix it, is super sculpey is kinda brittle and will crack pretty easily on you ( especially if you armature isnt nice and secure(stiff) so if you mix some promat or preme in there with it it makes it a little tougher becuase those clays are alot more sturdy than Super Sculpey, so why not just sculpt with that you ask, good quesiton, because its way more expensive than Super sCulpey, which to answer your last question goes for anywhere between 7-10 bucks a pound ( or is it 2 I can never remember) at retail stores and if you order it in bulk online you can get it for around 4-5 bucks a box (pound whatever) but you have to by like 50 pounds to get that discount.

    hope that helps some.

    oh yeah and you can smooth it out with water, alcohol (91% works better than the 70%) so watch for that if you by alcohol, and the real smoother that breaks it down the most is turpinoid, but it will be kinda messy for awhile after you use it, it helps to keep a glass of water handy to dip your tools in while you sculpt with sculpey as it will keep the surface smooth and keep it from buggering up on you so much.

    THanks for all the kinds words and all. Sorry I've not been around, busy as heck. Plus, I thought people stopped posting in this thread. Anyway, if you fwd you questions to my user cp, I promise to respond to all of them. Come to the workshop in SF, should be a lot of fun and worth your time and money. Also, I'm doing a Gnomon dvd on maquette sculpting as well, so look out for that later in the year. Thanks again, peepels.

    I came across this thread way late, but i figured i'd show my support since i'm completely blown away.

    smellybug, that was friggin awseome. The concept drawing was very cool, and the finished piece was even more amazing.

    I'm really thankful that you made this tutorial, I'm just starting to get into maquettes and your posts taught me so much. So many things i wouldn't have thought to do myself, except maybe after way too much time making mistakes and getting frustrated.

    The more i learn from you pro sculpters, the more excited i am getting about making maquette sculpting a stronger career goal, as opposed to my undecided general illustrated concept art.

    I look forward to the next tutorial, can't wait!!
