    Beast (first sculpey sculpture)(BIG DL)

    Hi everybody!
    After seeing Smellybug's awesome tutorials, I really wanted to give clay sculpting a go. I did a crappy creature head with Fimo couple years ago (I basicly did everything wrong with it ), so I count this as my first proper sculpture, and oh boy it was fun!
    I decided to do a monster beast or creature that I'm going to propably use in my 3d project. So I'm trying to do it allso in 3d. Hope it works out

    Sculpting this one was so much fun, that I just had to buy some more super sculpey So there's propably going to be another thread by me (if I don't mess it up).
    Biiiiig thanks goes to Smellybug for those tutorials and inspirational stuff.

    dkounios - Thanks!
    jungle - I'll post more pics tonight. I promise. Well I got my super sculpey from finnish online shop. If you don't know any local store that sells it, go online. For example http://www.sculpt.com/. It's relatively cheap
    Saittam_j - Thanks!

    wait, was this your first time sculpting? or simply, your first time working with sculpey? cause if it was the first then damn.....and even if its the second, then its still a freaking awesome sculpt.

    One critique is that the pose needs some work, it looks a little generic, as if its not really doing anything.

    Fax - Yeah it was my first time using sculpey. As I mentioned, I did 2 Fimo soft "blobs" year or two ago. A cave trollish head and figure, but now as I watch them, they look pretty crap Thanks anyways! Yes, the pose is generic on purpose, because I plan of doing it in 3d allso. This way I can photo it in every angle and the I can use those pics as a reference in 3d app and model it.

    Now, a big load of making of pics!

    great work! love the paint job and the front legs especially (almost identical to the ones on my first sculpt). sure wish i could handle my airbrush like that. so far all i can do with it is put one hudge layer of paint on the surface.

    Very cool sculpt! The paint job is especially well done. the only place I might see a problem is with the anatomy of the from limbs. I'm not 100% sure and I havent really gone back and looked at any references, but I think it would look more convincing if you had him supporting himself on his knuckles rather than his wrists. Again, I'm not positive, but I dont think there are any animals that would stand that way. Obviously this is a fantasy style creature, but its always best to ground your design with realism....just a little point on an otherwise awesome job though

    kinkyMonkey - Thanks a lot! Well, I don't have any special techniques because I'm still learning. Basicly I did everything pretty same way as Smellybug in his tut (or atleast I tried ). About smoothing: First I scraped the overall form and did the wrinkles, then I brushed it with lighter fluid. I'm not sure if it's the right way, but it did the job . I tried allso turpentine, it does the same thing, but it stinks (though lighter fluid stinks too). I'm not sure, but I think lighter fluid has a bit stronger effect and it dries or evaporates quicker. Remember good ventilation

    limion - Thanks! Yeah, airbrushes are pretty tricky tools. I'm still learning it. Mine chokes up all the time and I'm pretty lazy cleaning it

    Jive Turkey - Thanks! The idea was that it would walk on it's knuckles a bit like gorillas do, but I didn't manage to get the look I was after It turned out like elephant feets with some weird mutant claws sticking out of it's heel

    You said that you're gonna use the model as reference for a 3d model, right? it wouldnt be too hard to fix it up there. All you really have to do is rotate the hand toward the head. See the part thats directly on the ground? That would be the top of his hand, opposite of his palm. If hes going to walk with his knuckles, the top of his hand should almost be in line with his arm (perhaps even on a slight angle in either direction depending on where his centre of gravity is) Does that make sense? Take a look at this rendering I found to get a better idea of what I mean.

    The detail in your creature is amazing, its just some little anatomy changes. One thing that I found that I found kinda funny though...when he poops, wont be poop on his hind leg webbing? I think you should leave that though. See if anyone notices. I really hope you dont think I'm picking apart your sculpture. If I didnt like it, I would've looked at the pictures once, then moved on. The reason I'm finding these things is because I'm looking at it so closely. I'm FAR from being an expert myself. I'm still very much a beginner. But I know how much I appreciate a little constructive critisism. Also, I could learn a lot from you about skin texturing. Yours is top notch!

    Jive Turkey - Thanks for all your effort and interest on this one. I appreciate constructive critisism too. You're right about the hand and those tips you gave are pretty good. I don't mind you "picking it apart", we're all here to learn. About the pooping thing I noticed it allso myself and I've been waiting when somebody notices it allso
