    Mass Effect Bust, zombie bust and more!: Grunt by Lordluud2

    Hello everyone,

    This will be my first post showing something iv'e made.

    For the past two years or so, I have been on and of with sculpting, and I never lasted longer than about a week. The doodles I made were terrible, and it prevented me from going further.

    Now that I finally spend some time on something, and bought some better stuff, this first 'serious' sculpt begins to look like something. It isn't a masterpiece, but I am satisfied, and I want to continue!

    With the unfinished base, it is about five or six inches tall, and sculpted in Super Sculpey.

    Still got a few things to do though. I am thinking about doing his shoulder armor again in Super Sculpey Firm, but as it turns out, it's two year old clay and very crumbly. I tried to soften it up with Sculpey Softener, but it stays crumbly and brittle :sad:

    I do have a lot of problems getting everything crisp, even though I have some freeze spray which I use to carve in the details and sharp angles. I am also having trouble adding texture like scales or something, but I just end up scraping off the clay, and when smoothing it, smudging everything.

    Anyway, C&C is always welcome.

    Thanks for watching.

    Thank you for your kind comment, Mossi.

    I get a bit negative when I see all those awesome, incredibly detailed sculptures here. I would commit a murder to achieve such an accomplishment, but not yet being able to do that, makes me doubt myself.

    A quick question though: How do I create a thumbnail for my thread?

    @Washington: Thank you for the compliment. You are also correct about the practice bit, and it sure as hell is fun, but the end results can sometimes be a bit dissapointing.

    Guess I'm gonna do some all-nighters this weekend!

    @renatothally: Thanks!

    I think it looks great! Can you explain what you mean about "freeze spray"? I'm completely ignorant about sculpture technique....

    @Mossi; Will sure do!

    @Saracen: Freeze spray freezes the clay, so it becomes very hard. It doesn't distort as much when you carve it with sharp tools, so you can add more detail. It also helps lock in the details so they do not smuch.

    Here a work in progress shot of a Nazi Zombie bust I am doing. I gave it that classic mustache and slick hair!

    What ya think; Shall I give it a German officer uniform, or keep him naked?

    And btw: Darn you spam filter on this forum, because I replied to the posts above earlier, but still hasn't come through.

    Since my previous post has not shown up yet: @ Saracen: It's a can of spray that I use to freeze certain parts of my sculpture with. Because it freezes, it makes the clay hard and sturdy, and causes it to hold detail much better. It is really neat to carve in those little details when it's hard. When it is soft, you just push around way too much clay.

    Here's an example (darn, it looks YIKES this up close...).

    You see the arches above the teeth, where the gums start? I did these with a needle when in frozen state. It was the only way I could get it crisp and the way I wanted.

    It is still a work in progress btw, and the face is only about 50% done.

    Thank you Broderick! First I gotta finish it, but paint it...? I'm not sure, i'm not a big hero at painting. I think i'll end up ruining it.

    Cast/mould a few copy and practice painting in your piece.

    That's what I'd do.
