WIP 4: The Huntress

This is the current progress of my Huntress sculpture. I'm not happy at all with the painting I did on her.. and plan to repaint her entirely.

WIP:3 The Huntress

I've been working on her some more for the past few nights.. and I've decided to take the advice to cover her with a piece of damp paper towel to keep her smaller bits from burning... so I've been able to freely continue sculpting her. I am almost finished now, save that I havent been happy with her left hand, and will be resculpting it, along with a spear which she will be holding.

Here are some photos I just took!

WIP:2 The Huntress

ok... got a chance to work on her some more tonight... and omg for about 3 hours her head looked JUST like Patric Stewart.. very frustrating! Somehow I managed to give her face a more feminine look.. but it was a fight!

Its amazing how differently you see your sculpts when you look at them as photos.. I can see so many more flaws now that I am looking at the pictures! I need to finish her feet.. fix her cankles... and smooth her out... I'm probably going to add her ears and hands after I've given this chunk of her a bit of a baking..

I am also going to sculpt onto her some dreadlocks... =) Hopefully she will start to look more feminine once she has some nice long hair.

WIP:1 The Huntress

So I decided to put Basil back on the back-burner. Clothing him is driving me nuts.. and I'm afraid if I carry on fighting with him I'll burn out and loose the drive to sculpt.... particularly since he is only my second.

So I've decided to do a smaller scale.. all hard bodied sculpt... I'm not clothing this one! And any clothes she will be wearing I will be sculpting on!

Here is what I've got for starters.... really wishing I had an artists anatomy book or some sort of reference... just working from what is in my head. But its proving difficult to lay her muscles and skin folds out right.

My plan for her is that she is not going to be a faerie.. rather.. a brownie of sorts. She will be holding a bow or spear in her left hand.

WIP:2 Basil

For the past couple of nights I've been working, or at least trying to work... on Basil's clothing. It is proving to be a HUGE challenge for me, and I wonder if his clothing will actually stay on once I've finished him.. or if it will all gradually fall off. I doubt that I will sell Basil... as he isnt really of quality that I would want people buying from me. Perhaps he might end up as a gift to someone one day.

But for now, he is a lesson learned that I should not do soft bodied sculptures... no matter how cool I think Jill Willich's pieces are.

It's unfortunate that this was the best shot I got of this one finished before wrapping it up and giving it to Dave's mom... I actually didnt realize how bad the pic was until just now! =( Ahh..well.

Anyways.. here is the finished illustration... all framed and matted. It felt good to finally finish a piece of art!!

WIP:1 Basil

This is a sculp I've been working on for quite some time now, but hit a stall once I reached the point of clothing him. This stage is completely foreign to me, so I've been struggling to continue. Altho, I plan on putting some energy into him this weekend... hopefully I'll make some progress.

He is sculpted from polymer clay, over a wood and wire armeture.
