    a try. The amount of amazing work you put out is nothing short of superhuman.

    Now a tiny crit...

    It may just be me but it strikes me as odd that Karma's suit would have folds between her
    boobs but none behind her boobs or under her arms. Such a minor thing but....

    Thanks for this thread!

    Thanks Cryminysakes, that's extremely nice of you. I hope you have good luck with the
    Sculpey and larger scale pieces.

    As far as your crit, you're absolutely right regarding the folds and stretch of the material.
    My only excuse is that, in order to make a halfway decent living doing this, I have to work
    at a pretty fast pace, and that often allows errors like this to slip through. I do my best to
    get as much as I can right, but misses like this are unfortunate, but almost unavoidable.
    Thanks for the feedback though.

    Ha! Don't I wish!! No, they're pretty much all scratch-built. I'm constantly on the lookout,
    wherever I go, for anything that I might be able to use for a base. Toys, hardware, electronic
    components, salt & pepper shakers,.....almost anything. With the skull base, I made a few
    resin copies from a skull mold I had and just attached them to a random, cobbled-together
    base I had up on the shelf. Easy-cheesy.

    Well - it certainly doesn't detract from the skill of your work and I also understand from a commission perspective as well as I have just completed my first sculpting commission - I could have worked and reworked them forever if I had had the time. Looking forward to more posts pictures from you!!

    Awesome! Love the expression and details in the face and ears. Also one of your best, if not best, base designs ever too. Still don't know how you get those smooth surfaces.

    Might I ask, what is supporting the cape/cloak, is there an armature in there?

    Oh man. That's it. Time to sculpt.

    ...oh and the hands are incredible too.

    Etrigan? I'm not familiar with that name, but I do remember a similar looking demon character that used to team up with the Defenders and he was named Issac. Are they the same?

    Anyhow, excellent work as usual!

    Thanks so much everyone! Really glad you dig him!

    I use the WireForm mesh that you can buy at the craft store (in the clay section), blend a really
    thin layer of Magic Sculpt on top, and then shape it as best i can before it sets up.

    No, that character was called Gargoyle, and while they looked VERY similar, they were different.
    I know the client who commissioned me for this piece is going to be converting one of his Etrigan
    copies into a Gargoyle, and I've also got another client who has commissioned me to actually sculpt
    Gargoyle from scratch, which I'll probably be doing later this year or early next.

    Wow this one is my favourite from you! Solid work, looks real dynamic.

    Now, how did you make the circular base for example? It looks like a base from an expensive vase of some sort.
    How did you get the shape like that?

    You see, for me sculpting is scrunching up tin foil onto wires and putting super sculpey on it.
    I can't make symmetrical geometric shapes that way. That is why I still don't understand how people make robot sculptures and circular bases

    Yay for Etrigan! Great job Troy! Love the interaction between the character and the base.

    Whenever possible, use found objects. The bottom of this base was the bottom half of a
    fancy toothbrush holder that I found in a store months ago. I have a giant collection of
    bits and pieces for scratch-building mechanical items and bases. Just keep your eyes open
    when you're out and about and you'll start to see things that could be very useful on some
    undetermined project down the road.

    You are awesome.

    I keep finding more and more great artist, which makes me scared of starting out with sculpting. How did everyone get so good?

    Awesome work, can't wait to see even MORE of you!
