Howdy folks and welcome to my contest entry!
I decided to sculpt one of my favorite comic characters of all time, Hobbes from Calvin & Hobbes!
A little background of my sculpting ability: I have none. While i've been known to pickup a pencil or model something in 3D, I've never touched a piece of clay before in my life. Not even as a kid; always went straight to the brushes.
With that being said I decided to do some research and settled on Super Sculpey as my clay of choice.
A trip to Pearl's and I had my supplies. I also picked up whatever sculpting tools I had thought I've seen other people use. I know the wire thingie's and the pokie thingie are staples in everyone's arsenal. I've seen the wood thingie's elsewhere and figured why the hell not.
