    Harley Quinn sculpt.

    Thought I'd have a go at sculpting Harley. Took me a week to get the armature in the best pose then I started sculpting her over the weekend.

    This piece is really quite impressive. I am not so great at armatures but yours is extremely nicely done. Also look forward to seeing this piece start to head towards completion. So far excellent stuff. Keep it up.

    Ok that armature is class. I mean it's beautiful. The hands are works of art in themselves and probably deserve to but shown off and not hidden in clay

    I thought I was putting a lot of time in spending a day on an armature but you've proven me wrong. The more I learn, the more I'm realising the armature is incredibly important to get the pose right. But then I see people like the Shiftlett brothers http://www.shiflettbrothers.com/ and their armatures while very strong indeed are also anatomically very poor and rough. Maybe they are an exception to a rule, not sure but I'm studying the heck out of your armature and taking notes.

    Beautiful sculpt so far too. No point commenting on anything that I see still needs doing as you're obviously way more talented than me and have it all in hand. This is going to rock.

    Thanks...much appreciated. I spent about a week on the armature to get it perfect and made it so both arms and the back leg can break away for baking and moulding. I think it's each to their own when making the armature.
    Here's a link to the armature in more detail and an armature scale comparison

    I guess it must come down to how you approach the sculpt. the Shiftlett brothers whos work I greatly admire, just thought I'd add that in case it sounded like I was dissing them, seem to do everything rough and then it all just comes together at the end somehow into great art. Yours looked right from the start.

    Thanks for the pictures, got them printed out

    A few questions. Are you using proper armature wire there or just sourcing wire you've found suits you? I can't seem to get hold of real armature wire and when I did find a place online that said it sold it, it ended up being really tough wire that I couldn't even cut with pliers. What gauges are you using for the thick and thin wire?

    I'm a fan of the Shiftlett brothers also...I have one of their pieces.
    I think because they are so experienced in the field of sculpting they dont realy need a perfect armature...they've done it that many times a rough one will do.

    I dont use proper armature wire..I buy regular wire from my local hardware shop. I buy 3 or 4 different thicknesses...the thickest one for the main body and thinner one's for wrapping round the armature.. And I use milliput for holding the wire together.
    I'd suggest getting hold of a book called Pop Sculpture...it's a must for any wannabe sculptor. I bought my copy last year and I still haven't put it down.

    I love seeing photos for a work in progress and how it develops over time. Wish more artists would do this, although I understand how you get carried away in the work and forget to photo. I know I do that.

    She is great Dude....I don't know the character, but I am assuming she is in the world of Batman....I love her wrist cuffs and the base is really cool. She has a really cute face....makes you want to pinch her cheeks and her nose.
    great job.
