First time posting, with my first completed sculpt! Here's something I designed for my old company while there... It is a creature design for a CGI movie. They moved on to other concepts, but I kinda liked this one, so it was a good opportunity dig out some super sculpey and paints. This is the first sculpt I've ever completed all the way from concept to paint, it's taken me 6 months on and off. At one point, he was finished but fell over... so I had to resculpt the mane. There's still a base and groundwork to think about, but the figure itself is done.
Comments and crits would be much appreciated.
The original design -
The final painted sculpt -
Right, tell me what you guys think!
Great concept and execution Gene.
I like the form and rendering of the mane you did.
Only crit I can give would be that the skull feels a bit heavy. It might be because he is in a process of jumping, or maybe because of the way the beard goes down. Maybe if it was flowing back and a bit to the side it would work better? That's neatpicking though

The figure's actually in a fairly static pose. I realise my original drawing was slightly off, proportion and perspective wise, and so the head's already been shrunken slightly in the sculpt. I also tried to compensate by giving him a massive neck. The mane's a little bit 'anime' in the way the hair spikes out... and I couldn't really figure out a way of making it look lighter. Thanks for the comments
great concest and realization!
Here's some WIPs... forgot to post them here.
Hi Gene Compliments ... Good Work ..... much interesting yours progress.... moreover beautiful the interlace of a human and zoomorfe anatomies
Wow Gene, I already posted a couple comments over at The Clubhouse, but
I can't believe this hasn't gotta more attention over here. Once again, great

Great concept and a great looking sculpture.
MAB, I'm glad you noticed the mix of anatomies... I was trying to create a 4 legged creature that didn't look canine or feline. I also thought it would be cool if the forelegs could grab things (like little villagers) with very human looking hands.
Amazing sculpt, and that hair on his forelegs is unreal. I love the paintjob too, really makes him pop... pop? Yes... Thanks for the rotating view too
Cool sculpt. Like the 360 turn. Paint job is very nice too!

Awesome work, man! Just one thing...how can this thing stay in balance with so much weight in the front? It's got a massive head and small legs. Again, well done!
Wow pretty sweet... so did you bake it after a while, add to it and bake again?
Crappy stuff by me!
Please check it out and drop advice, tell me what I'm doing wrong, and suggest things to learn!!!
Praesagus - The hair was crazy (at one point I was rolling them strand by strand) and totally impractical... half of the finer strands broke off as soon as I touched them with my paintbrush Lesson learnt!
Shadowwing - More than one person's commented on that... but I guess I just wanted it more stylised and figured most of the strength would come from the forelegs.. not nearly as extreme but sort of like Star Wars Ep1's Sebulba.
Marked970 - That's exactly what I did as I wasn't too sure about how I would go about sculpting things like the mane. It was hard work getting fresh sculpey to stick onto the baked stuff, so I figure next time I'll try to get it as finished as possible and bake it all in one go.
Love it. Specially the way you added detail (hair, etc) by baking the sculpt in two stages. Nice painting job too.
I would totally buy that sculpture if it were for sale.
Just wondering what kind of paints you used? I've been doing some work with sculpey but don't know what paint to use.
i love the hair. awesome
yeah sir the hair was amazing how did you that
Indieo, you do realise he posted this just a couple of weeks shy of two years ago right? He probably isn't checking it still...
Wo this is great,I love the way you've done the fur. looks spot on
Great Design concept through to great sculpture.
I'd buy it, Nice work
