Treasure Seeker Ashkii by mangakasan Treasure Seeker Ashkii by mangakasan
Treasure Seeker Ashkii (native indian for boy XD) is an OOAK sculpture and will stay in my possession, tho in July i will open up for sculpting commissions so if interested keep an eye out on my journal around that time :)

Ashkii (i called him Bob previously) is a project i started for a sculpting tutorial, you can find the first part here [link] The next part of the sculpting tutorial in which the sculpting process is portrayed will be up soon :)

Ashkii's tack is completely removable from his body and all the items on the tack (bags/rope/butt piece) can also be removed separately.

Another shot:

Materials:

*iron wire/aluminum foil/tape for armature
*Clays: super sculpey and sculpey firm for the jaguar, Kato poly clay for the little bags and decorations on the butt piece
*Tack: used various fabrics/strings and leathers for it which i glue together with super strong fabri-tac glue, used iron wire for all the buckles.
*Painted with Acrylic paint (eyes/spots/accessories on tack) pastel dusted 20+ layers as base color for the jaguar, used little bit of bronze pearl-ex on the bags.
*finishing touches: 3d lacquer on eyes and nose/lips to make them look shiny/wet synthetic hairs for the wiskers

Hours taken for this project everything included 80+ hours

This is great! Your improvement is amazing. Yo should totally do a tut on accessories too, I have never seen sculptures like this with removable 'tack', as you put it. Truly one of a kind!

woaaaaah :squee: I was never inspired to try sculpturing till I saw this a couple of days ago. Now I've been searching in my country for the materials you talked about in the tutorial, didn't find much but I have no problem with getting them over the internet but I would like to try with simple stuff first to see if it works for me. I just wanna ask you 2 questions & I hope you reply back.
1- I only found Fimo clay, can I use it to explore this sculpting world.
2- Can you provide links for the material (plastic tools, metal tools & polymer clay) so I can purchase them later.

Thank you soooooo much for this huge inspiration :tighthug: & sorry for my long comment :forgiveme:

Fimo clay i havent used myself yet (tho i just ordered some fimo puppen myself and cant wait to try it) but i heard its a decent and strong polymer clay at least if you got fimo classic, if you have fimo soft that kinda is similar to sculpey III, soft and pliable but can become very sticky/smudgy when the clay gets warm and isnt very durable, but you can certainly use it to try sculpting with :) as for materials... try and see if your local art shops sell any of these other wise you surely find them on ebay :)

Thank you so much for the fast reply, really appreciate it :hug:
I found soft fimo & another fimo. I read an article few hours ago & it advised not to get the soft one, so as you said better not get it. I'll get the other fimo, I was asking to make sure that it'll be a good start. I live in Egypt & there is no much variety as in the US, not even around art university, won't use ebay cause we don't have paypal in Egypt. So, I found some stuff on amazon, gonna try with simple stuff at home first & then buy stuff if sculpturing work for me :pray:

Now I saw your first sculpture & you are definitely born to sculpture :clap: do you think I shouldn't start with something as complex as it or treasure seeker or try more simple stuff. How did you start? whats your advise? & how did your FIRST sculpture look that good?

Thank you for replying back that quickly as I'm gonna go shopping for those today :happybounce: & sorry this comment is long as well :forgiveme:

i think you shouldnt go start off with something to difficult, make a couple of sketches of the subject in a simple pose you want to sculpt, play a bit with your clay and materials to get a hang of it :)

ok, went to the shop today only found fimo soft, natural, material, accessories. Only fimo soft can enter the oven. Also found something called DAS. plus Amazon won't deliver those stuff worldwide. I'm out of luck with sculpturing :cry:
