Carl's house (from the movie pixar, UP) 100% handmade, in Polymer clay.
The house is about 20 cm high, and the base is 15 X 13 cm. Each axis of the house, every tile, every window, was first modeled and mounted, each axle has its veins ... Crush to pieces, was assembled at the end of cooking.
This work took 50 hours of modeling, and has been for me, a job completely INSANE.
Hey dude, love your cartoon style sculpts! All of them
That house must have taken ages, you baked all the tiles and beams and stuff seperately?
Looks beautiful though and like Rufus2000 said, would be awesome with tiny balloons with helium on top
For a crit, I feel the hulk could use some more realistic muscle anatomy, even if you want to keep it cartoony.
To me he looks kind of rushed, as if you weren't really in to it. For example the clenched fist: the fingers could do with some more anatomical structure.
You did put that in the toes, so that's why I think you may have rushed it. Anyway, I really love all the rest of your stuff! Keep going great and keep posting!

Well, yes, in fact, the anatomy of the Hulk is pretty rough, I wanted to make a more realistic test, but obviously I'm not ready for this kind of style.
I really like the character grotesque or funny, I express myself better with them.
Unfortunately, here in Italy, there are no courses in modeling ... I'm serious. I would like to learn how to make action figures, but the only courses I've found, are out of my country.
It 's very sad this thing ... I have to be satisfied with how-to videos from youtube!
Nice! Its seems to me you have a really good ability at capturing the defining characteristics of the character you're creating. You thought about creating some of your own characters?
Well yes, for now I'm doing a little 'practice ... I do not feel ready yet for any of my pieces. But I miss a little
Surely they are more inclined to fantasy art ... I'll start with that. ^^

Love your work and yes I agree with shrunkendesigner, you should look at developing your own characters. Look to your own local/ancestral folklore maybe?
thank you, you're very kind
My homeland has ancient traditions, I live on an island in the middle of the Mediterranean Sea. It 's the most ancient land of Italy, and boasts ancient traditions ... it is certainly a good idea to take a cue from here.
to get an idea, this is a carnival mask Sardinia, my land MASK
Now, my last works ^^
