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

Cool sculpt Sabrina... I have only been on this forum a year almost so let me say welcome back. The cobra looks fierce.

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

hello again, has it really been 2 years?! you started the cobra just after i joined the forum nice to see it finished, the glass (?) eyes really set it off. So what have you planned next?...

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

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!

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.

Well Well Well,
Super-Sculpey is cheap for you - if you only use one package every year and a half ;-)
Soooo - is this the finish, or the start on something new?

cool one...a touch of slime would have made it complete i think...i can relate to you so very much when you say that you tend to rush things towards the end..hope we learn to be more patient..

Welcome back (but I don't remember you because I've only been here since last fall...) It's cool that you picked up a project again and finished it after 2 years....usually when I go that long not working on something it becomes permanently abandoned because I lose interest in it.
So this guy is only your first realism sculpture? Pretty impressive! Are we going to get to see some more stuff from you?
