    Cthulhu

    Hello everyone,

    I'm currently working on a 1/61 scale Cthulhu for a Kickstarter; http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/...-foundry-style

    It's in it's final days and fully funded!

    The two greens at the bottom are H.P. Lovecraft and Sonia Greene sculpted by Tom Meier.

    Damn 3cm tall and still able to get a recognisable likeness.
    Great Cthulhu sculpt but that thing is going to be a nightmare to mold.

    Fantastic work - I want to ask - those wires sticking out of the limbs (specifically the ones that have the loop at the top) - how did they look before they were covered in clay and do the loops serve a purpose? I'm trying to learn all I can about sculpting before I go waste materials due to having NO clue what I'm doing. Never did a free standing sculpture before.

    The wire loops I added after I started the model. On hind site I probably should have added them before hand, but it worked out. Since it is a multipart model and the limbs are inserted into aluminum tubing the wire loops allow me to pull the pieces off to work on without putting pressure on the piece itself.

    The main armature is the pipe with the aluminum armature wire. The wire was put in an aluminum tube, then the tube was scored and broken at the joints. The tubes work as bones and helps keep things ridged when trying to resolve the positioning of limbs. I then bulked him up using construction foam, added in layers, then once set, carved down with a serrated knife. then add clay work.

    Okay, been trying for the past three days it seems to say thank you for the information. The "Thanks" didn't register either. So, without further adieu, thank you for all the information. It's good stuff to know.
