    COBRA sculpture (nearly 2YRS! in the making!)

    Hi guys,
    I don't know if any of you remember me, but I was quite active on this forum a couple of years ago (my name is Sabrina, 21 years old from Sweden). Tonight I FINALLY dusted off my cobra sculpture (my fourth sculpture and first attempt at realism) that I started nearly TWO years ago!! Wow, time really does fly... Well, I finally finished the sculpting and have started painting it. Here are some photos (comments, especially constructive criticism, are very welcome!):

    Yay Sabrina!!!! Welcome back!!!

    I think that your cobra looks great! Did you have any problems with the clay drying out while it was sitting on your shelf for two years??

    Yay, thank you Mike!! I'm glad to be back! ^^ Actually, strangely enough I found the clay still to be workable, after all that time. I was afraid that the clay would have completely dried up and that I would have had to redo the body completely (the head was already baked), but luckily that wasn't the case!

    I'm glad you like the cobra, I think it's my best sculpt yet! Hopefully there will be many more to come after this one! ^^

    Of course I remember Time really does fly! I was wondering what happened to that sculpt You are lucky it didn't dry and crack - happened to me a few times with abandoned projects. The cobra came out very nice, looking forward to see it completed. Maybe a wash with darker paint will bring the details more (but you probably was going to do it anyway

    Makes me really happy to hear that I'm still remembered! Yes, it's crazy how fast time flies!! Thank you for the tip about the paint job - and yes, I was thinking of painting it a bit darker later on. The paint in the pictures is just the basic paint. I'm also looking forward to seeing it complete, heehee, since it's been dusting on my shelf for way too long now. xD

    Yes, I can hardly believe it myself! I looked at my old thread when I started with the cobra and it was dated octobre, 2008(!) Yes, the eyes are made of glass. I bought them from www.glasseyes.com. I still have two pairs of glass eyes left, a pair of reptillian eyes and a pair of avian eyes. The reptile eyes were bought with a dragon sculpture in mind and the avian eyes with a sculpture of an African Grey parrot, so hopefully I can start on one of these projects soon.

    Yay Sabrina's Back!!! I was wondering how you were doing. Great to still you're still sculpting!!
    It's cool you've got the cobra done, congrats for finishing!
    My little crit would be on the paint, the brown on his head seems to be a little flat?...its hiding some of your detailing I think. Just my 2 pennies

    Really good to see ya back!

    Thank you so much, I'm very glad to be back!! I'm doing great, I've just been a very busy bee lately, haha! I agree with your critique, I think I got a little lazy with the detail in painting in the end - I just wanted to see my sculpture finished I think, lol! That's probably my biggest mistake when it comes to sculpting - I get too eager and tend to rush it, which also takes away the chance to get that "something extra" in my creations. Well, I guess I'll just have to learn to take it slow! :p I could try to better the paint job on the cobras head though - some day!

    Just a fun fact: I was born in the year 1989 and that makes my chinese zodiac the snake, haha, so the sculpture definately suits me.
