Well, only got 19 responses from 300+ followers so we will use some of those ideas for the next sculpture. Thanks to those who suggested things; some a bit odd, some intriguing.
Here it is:
So here is what we will be addressing from your list of wants:
1. A small child in action (we will look at the proportions of the child). We will also cover putting clothes on a full figure sculpt.
2. An armature for a more complex set of figures where the largest figure seems to have little support.
3. More expressive faces.
4. A hybrid creature- in this case a sumo wrestler and an octopus.
5. Tentacles and how to get them to not break for shipping.
6. Sculpting a "nightmare".
7. Maybe we can add a tattoo to the critter just because you asked so nicely.
Sorry that we won't be getting to the Equine hybrid for those who asked. Good idea, maybe later this year.
This is the rough design. Hopefully the final piece will flow a little better. I definitely do better with sculpture than I do sketches.
We will start next time with laying out and creating the armature for this piece.
Have a great day!
Very KEWL..looking forward to this...Thanks Mark !!ReplyDelete
Aha! I was hoping for a child sculpt but was hesitant to ask...who knows why?! I am glad someone else did, though. Eager to this in production. Thank you!ReplyDelete
Looks awesome thanks Mark!ReplyDelete
Awesome!! Thanks Mark!! :)ReplyDelete
Mark, I just can't wait!!! I would love to sculpt along, but you are too fast for me! Will look closely though!!!ReplyDelete
Patrizia, I promise to go slowly with this one. I will space out the posts to give anyone who wants to work along a chance to ask questions before moving to the next steps.ReplyDelete
Love the concept! From my perception I see a low self esteemed OctoSumo who can not see his inner beauty. His demon, being in the form of the perfect beautiful child, keeps his true kind self chained to a shy personality with no confidence. :) Wonderful Mark!!ReplyDelete
your creativity never ceases to amaze me! :)ReplyDelete
Mark, I have been reading all of your blogs. I am going to try my best to follow along with this one. Very intriguing.ReplyDelete
Love the Demons face! Perfect for this setting. Can hardly wait to see more. Love the drawing too!ReplyDelete
I am so glad you will be going a little slower for us that are not quit as skillful at sculpting. I love this and hope I can follow along. It looks like it will be a lot of fun! Thanks Mark for sharing you talent with us...ReplyDelete
I've been following all your latest posts and thank you for sharing. I'm working hard to finish a big project so I can participate with you in your sculpts. I truly appreciate what you're doing.ReplyDelete
Intriguing and very deep!! Love it!ReplyDelete
I wish I could keep up, too. Maybe a little slower will give me that chance. I'll be following along closely though. This is going to be an absolute blast to see how you do this one! Amazing. And, thanks for possibly using the tattoo idea, too. That is one technique that I have to learn, but seeing this demon in the air like this has my mind going wild with ideas already! I love your creativity and envy you for having it. Do you see how green I am? LOLReplyDelete
Mark you are too, modest, great rough sketch.ReplyDelete
This is going to be so much fun, so many ideas all rolled into one and even a SPeCiAL homage to KeLLy!
WOW! i love the concept and the sketch :D would love to play along, let's see if i can squeeze in some time.....can't wait to see your final result!ReplyDelete
Yippee!!! Original and intriguing. I am going to love to sculpt along. Thank you!ReplyDelete
Sweet! Looks like its gonna be a fun one! I can't wait to get started!ReplyDelete
Such a great concept I love it! This is going to be fun :) And I love Mamie's view of it being reversed, wow!ReplyDelete
Mark, you are the best!!! Thank you so much!!! But maybe you don't know you are too fast even when you go slowly! LOLReplyDelete
Patrizia, If we go any slower, we will be going backwards;)ReplyDelete
This is so generous of you!!! Thank you, vielen lieben Dank!!!ReplyDelete
I'm still struggling with the anatomy and proportion, but will happily watch you making your art.
Best wishes from Germany,
