Well, this sculpture sub thread has been made at a good time as Ive just started sculpting!
(along with that, im not entering the comp as I dont want to pressure myself with this build). This outfit is actually for next year, but ive got a lot to do, so earlier than later is the best time to start
(Oh and for those of you watching my HEV suit build, this is on hold until I can find a place to work with chemicals + power tools, Im actually really happy I can use clay in my garage - No travelling to get things done for once!)
Ok here is the character im building (minus the wings as they are normally retracted most of the time) :
So the build thread begins! - Summarised, I made a cloth tape expanding foam mannequin for the base, and im sculpting wed clay over the arms, legs, and torso. The hair will be wig ill have to construct and the face and eye will be a prosthetic and latex makeup.
IMPORTANT (so you dont think im entirely terrible at sculpting) : Im unable to make molds or do casting in my garage, so I have to transport these parts over to my friends house to do all the molds when time comes - But first thing after the move will be the main fixes to the surfaces and finer details will be applied. For now, im just get the main parts down, getting all my proportions right etc.
Basically, if I do the details now, the cling wrap and transport trip will negate any effort put it in so itll have to wait until they are moved
Pictures speak for themselves, hope you enjoy the progress so far :
First time working with wed clay. this stuff is reallllllllll nice to work with!
