SWSCA – Week three – Sculpt 03 (Angry Dragon Frog, detailing)

Here’s the work on my second character. His jaw was fairly heavy at one point and in the process of moving him to a different stand for sculpting, the weight of the clay at one point pulled down the jaw, so much so the clay cracked horizontally around the mouth! I’ve got him better supported now though. He needs a permanent stand until I fire him in the oven.

It’s been a learning experience!sws.week03.AngryDragonFrog.A..petercooper sws.week03.AngryDragonFrog.B.petercooper

SWSCA – Week three – Sculpt 02 (She-Dragon, Detailing)

Well, here’s my 3rd homework assignment through the Stan Winston School of Character Arts.

I’ve been juggling between ‘bread and butter’ projects this past fortnight, so it’s been difficult finding the time to push the sculpts forward. I worked back into the forms, changed things and applied lots of details. I used a lot of reptile and elephant reference. She’s come along way since my last update. In case anyone is interested, I plan on posting a picture based ‘making of’ very soon complete with some of the tools I used.

Despite making big changes to her horns, baking her teeth (thanks to Casey Love’s baking tips) and playing with secondary forms etc, she still needs work regarding detailing, but I’m getting there. There will be an update on her progress soon.
