    Vulgar Dragon's Sculptures: 2-Part Mold Tutorial UPDATED 11.5.10

    Hi folks,

    It's been ages since I posted any new work here on CA so I am starting a new thread. If anyone is curious, my old thread can be found here.
    Anyway, I recently finished my hellboar sculpture. I started it last fall and used a ceramic pig as a base for it. I had many interruptions and other things that distracted me from finishing it, so it sat on the shelf for a while. Now I was able to finish it. It wasn't easy because the clay had hardened from sitting on shelf, and I had to scrape parts off it and put new clay over it. And then after baking, it developed scores of hairline cracks everywhere. I had to repair the cracks, and then paint it over with one coat of acrylic paint.

    MOVED PHOTOS TO POST BELOW

    Awwww....that's just too cool for words! We have a pet kuni kuni pig who sits just like that. Great job and has a serious attitude. :-) Love it!

    Awesome piggy!!! - I love all the thorny horns all over him!
    Woulda been cool if you could make his tail stand up, but that's actually quite a neat solution you have there for the tail.
    nice!...an welcome back

    Thanks everyone!

    Theo: He is pretty good sized-- a foot long and 9 inches tall.

    Deon: Thanks for the welcome back I made the tail like this because I'm planning to make a mold and get some few casts out of it (which we will see how it goes). The tusks and the ears are also removable.

    Bongsplat: Thanks! Yes, I'm going to paint one when I get some casts made. I'm thinking of painting it reddish brown

    Mah' Crub: I'm not sure either but I prefer my pork smoked, not smothered in sauce. Just like they do it in the South.

    Nice to see this guy finally finished up. He looks quite pissed off.

    That dusty greyish brown colour really looks good on it.

    Awesome sculpt man! He's from the Hellfire Peninsula, in World of Warcraft, right?
    Are you from Puerto Rico, and you sculpt? Contact me if you do! Looking for people to teach me more in sculpting.
