Sculpting tut part 2 1 of 2. reupload by mangakasan Sculpting tut part 2 1 of 2. reupload by mangakasan
Sorry for the spam but there were spelling mistakes (really dumb ones that bothered me to no end...) that needed to be fixed....so why the re-upload? Because DA was being buggy and wouldn't let me edit the upload as it thought the submission was a text file instead of an normal file -_- and it wouldn't change no matter how much i refreshed D8 So i had to delete the old one and resubmit the tutorial.....
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

1st part: Armature building-> [link]

Next part: Sculpting part 2/2: [link]

First part of my playing with clay and make it into something awesome tutXD

Hope to have the next part up soon (gotta work on some more commissions so bare with me )
Curious about wip's of my newest projects? Then visit my public FaceBook page [link] which i will update with photos/sketches regularly.

I've drawn for eighteen years and know how animal anatomy works, but sculpting is a whole different challenge.
I've made/tried five sculptures so far, and I always get stuck and give up around the time when they look like something between the "start doing the head" and "detailing the head"-picture groups you have there. :| (Blank Stare)

there is no denying sculpting is hard and needs lots of practicing, my first sculptures were not to good, but with every piece you make you learn from it's mistakes, i suppose maybe you should try to finnish a piece up, even when it fails you can use that to improve a next project.
Sculpting just requires a lot of practice and patience :)

What type of clay do you use? I like it
Reply

mangakasan Featured By Owner Mar 19, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
polymer clays (oven bake clay), usually a mix of super sculpey and sculpey firm

How did you made that eyes?

i made them with clear resin + clear resin mixed with acrylics/other mediums in self made silicone molds (i cast in multiple layers, 1st transparent dome/lens, then pupil, iris and sometimes a 4th layer the eyewhite) sometimes when i want them done faster i just cast the dome/lens and paint the back of it after the resin is cured.

Thank you for all the details, how did you create the silicone molds ?
Reply
:iconmangakasan:
mangakasan Featured By Owner Nov 19, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
i used a two part silicone putty, when mixed in equal parts it stiffens up within minutes, so before it goes hard i quickly push some beads in of different sizes (i push them in half way) once the mold has hardened i take them out and you got yourself eye molds :)

Lunewen Featured By Owner Nov 20, 2013
Perfect !! Thank you hon ♥ :glomp: I thought to try with silicone for joints for the first try, I'll see if it's a good idea, it's not very expensive. I just need to find different size beads, now ^u^
Can't wait to see more sculptures from you !! I'm in love with your creations !

And thank you for answering =D

mangakasan Featured By Owner Sep 8, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist

Oh I have bought a little amount of this resin but I haven't tested yet! I haven't any molds.. maybe I will try to make something without using molds ><

mangakasan Featured By Owner Sep 9, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
i'm afraid you need molds as it is pure liquid and highly toxin (it's dreadfull when it gets to a curing stage and become pasty like..i once got a bit on my finger by accident and took me an hour to get it off (some skin peeling too) thats how nasty this stuff is...., you can buy mold making silicone (for eyes i suggest the non liquid press on form) at art shops or online shops and make sure you get a release medium aswell otherwise the resin wont come off where you casted it in

It really helps to sculpt all the muscles, tendons, etc. right away I guess... I've seen a lot of people who just make the basic shape and try to sculpt all the surface details while sculpting underlying features and it doesn't always turn out so good. Can't wait to try this!

mangakasan Featured By Owner Sep 1, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
ah there are so many ways to do this, it's just whatever way fits you best, this worked best for me, you just have to play around and experiment and figure out which work pattern suits you best :3

Any advice for smoothing the surface out (when it's not baked)?
Reply
:iconmangakasan:
mangakasan Featured By Owner Sep 2, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
i usually do it with a flat tool or with my fingers but you can use oils (vegetable oils and such) and smooth your services with a brush tipped with oil, i never do that because the clay becomes messy if you want to continue to work it so you first have to wait till it vaporizes, but there are many artists who use this medium and it works quite well

Yeah I looked some stuff up, and it seems a lot of people like to use rubbing alcohol and then use a heat source to speed up the evaporation. Might try that out, and thanks!

What I will happily repeat is that I am massively grateful that you've taken the time to make this tutorial and to share it with us :heart: It's very kind of you and I feel makes you an even better artist; that you're willing to take the time and share your 'secrets' with us :heart: Thank you for that! :hug:
