One of the 3 sculpture projects i'm working on, this is a pet portrait of my mothers dog (he passed away a year ago) it's going to be a christmas gift for her :3 This is one of the photos i use for reference to this sculpture
the kirin for the trade is almost done just needs one more hind leg and his tail worked out, the commission is half way done.

i hope to have this boy done within the next 2/3 weeks :3

The details are amazing and that coat is gorgeous! ^^ Can't wait to see it finished! :la:
I know this is a dog sculpture out of all clay but I have a question. ^^; I assume you've sculpted with Breyers before and I was wondering when resculpting, say a complete new broken leg out of clay, attaching and baking it, while it bakes does the Breyer model become soft as it gets reheated while the leg cooks or does the model stay firm?

I hope that makes sense :giggle:, sorry if it seems like a random question out of the blue but it's something I've been wondering for quite some time. I've put off sculpting because I was afraid I might ruin a Breyer. :lol:

Hey there! i...have never modified a model yet...i only have one breyer horse that i had ever since being a teen XD (i do plan to paint him over some time since he turned yellow of old age....) but usually these models are resin and shud take the heat, tho i wouldnt recommend it, i've been following people who do this for a living and most of them work just with apoxy sculpt (an 2 component air drying clay that smoothens with water, that way you dont have to bake them :3

Apoxy sculpt, got it! I thought maybe you'd done some breyers. ^^; I'd love to see the breyer when you repaint him. :3 I've customized with pastels but have so I'd like to resculpt, fix or repose. :3 Do you know where to get the apoxy sculpt and is it expensive?

Just curious, how do you manage to sculpt all the little details like the muscles around the jaws/eyes and whisker pads? I've never been able to get nice sculpts because the clay melts or I can't make things so small.

mangakasan Featured By Owner Dec 15, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
clay will not melt when it's applied on a good strong armature underneath, as for managing small details, i suppose there are different ways of achieving these but i usually carve them in the clay and add tiny bits of clay to give some muscles a bit of volume, i adding/carving as much until it feels right

For a split second I focused on the head area and thought this was a severely abused dog and freaked! This looks so real. This is a great tribute to your mom's doggy! Great job too.
