Thanks for putting all the highlight blocking-in photos.  It's always good to see all the processes that an artist goes through, instead of just the finished steps.

I almost almost made progress this weekend.  I even sat down in front of it and planned out the rocks to add to the frame. But then I realized it would take too much sculpey and I needed to come up with a more economic plan.  Which I still have yet to discover.  I may do some of it in cork and add sculpey to it.  I have to finish it though because I want to take it to world expo in july.

 

Thanks everyone!!!  I like going through the steps.  It helps me as well because I notice things I can change.

Yay!  You're going to World Expo too!?!?  Then you have to make sure it's ready in time so I can see it! ::):

Cork will survive the Sculpey baking process?  That's good to know!  I've been planning to do some polymer clay modelling, and thought about using different armatures & filler from wire and wadded aluminum foil.  Would carved pine or balsa scraps work, I wonder?

When I baked some sculpy on a pine base, the sap started to ooze out the sides....

Just a heads up...

oh- that's not what I meant and I'm not sure what would happen if I baked the cork...  I meant I would remove the cork and bake the bits.  I just wanted to try to cut down on the amount of sculpey I used!

Ah, well.  I may still experiment with balsa scraps encased in the Sculpey, or form heavy aluminum foil around a balsa wood framework, sculpt the model, then pull the Sculpey and aluminum foil from the balsa framework just before baking.

      Despite not having finished my second batch of zombicide abominations, my son has been on me every day since my birthday to work on this piece as he "gave it" to me. 

       
      Since I fear she's going to take a while since I'm going to really be pushing myself on the skin and the rest, I figure she'll be around a while with breaks to work on other stuff.  I also managed to break a piece of the ship while trying to remove the flash so I'll have to do a little repair work on that (put the rest of the ship back in the baggy when it happened as I was really tired at the time and shouldn't have been playing with tiny delicate pieces anyway...). 
       
      So fare I've cleaned up the pieces of the minuscule amounts of flash/mold lines.  Found one tiny, tiny air bubble right at the base of the bust at the back which I will likely ignore.  Really amazing casting on these.  Of course, like with the tooth fairy, I'll probably find more mold lines after she's got paint on her, but that's the way it goes.  Next steps will be to mount her onto something, give her a bath after a last check for any mold lines that need fixing and then another round of test assembly to see how much I'm going to assemble before painting.  Thus far I'm tempted to do a full assembly, minus the plume and the ship, but we'll see. 
       
      Of course, I may have to take some time to find some space to work as this is the current state of my desk... 

       
      Thanks for looking.

      Event though I need to finish touching up Alicia and finish her base, I have been distracted by this fine gentleman from Mr. Lee's Minis.  Still a lot of work to do, but he's coming along nicely I think.

      I saw amazing French sculptor Gautier Giroud posting up WIP pics of this amazing bust and knew I just HAD to have him, picked him up from Cinemodeles-creations. He's jumped up in my queue today while I'm home from work on a personal day. 

       
      Here's the the cast in resin pieces, held together by some blue tack so I could take the pics of the resin - 


       
      I've used my airbrush for the first time today, primed up Deadpool and 4 giants (the giants first to get the hang of the airbrush).
      Here's where he's at now -




       
      I drilled holes in his nose so that I can do the smoke sniffing scene as it's meant to be from the movie, which I'll probably use cotton or some other material to complete the effect.
       
      Going to get started on some painting of him now.

      I'll be trying to make this Mini into a Drow Vampire or something similar. I'm going to my FLGS Tomorrow for painting lessons. Wish me luck.
