i have been working on this sculpt now for about 2 years!! To cut a long story short i made it originally in sculpey had it ready to cast and done and instead of washing in ethanol i washed in acetone and rotted the hole thingA stupid newbie mistake, so i started again in chavant to see what this clay was like to work with. Anyway here is were i am upto now with it. however this time i dont have an armature and the legs keep braking because of the weight of the thing so thats another lesson i have learned
Arnold Schwarzenegger (to practice human anatomy)
1:4 Scale approx 19"
my first sculpt was a copy of smellybugs (pete konigs) sculpture of conceptart forum.
most up to date pic, if anyone wants to see progress shots let me know. i fist wanted to do it with the arms separate but have decided to do it as one. As you can see i haven't started the head yet as i am to scared becuause it will probably end up a complete mess but as soon as i have some more pics i will upload them. Please be honest and critical about anything that seems wrong and any advise you have would be greatly appreciated.
here is my first sculpt which like i say was a copy of smellybugs tutorial which inspired and taught me so much!! thanks for all the advice pete and help pete! i have broke this thing about 10 times as you can see from the pic and i also started to paint it but havent finished it yet.
