Mori Practices Sculpting!

146 posts in this topic

Alright, I'm calling it. Finished! Not pictured: her eyebrows.

 

I managed to squeeze in a few hours of fire throughout the weekend. It was originally going to be in Fimo, but I am just way too clumsy to do that much stuff without getting my fingers all over it. So I went back to Green Stuff! This also worked out because I ran out of time - I wanted to be done before I left for a family event on Friday, but I was too picky and kept trashing it. GS let me do little bits as time allowed.

 

I'm unhappy with the blending between sections, as it was often spur of the moment sculpting, but I'm happy with the fire shape. I went for a stylized feel. 1f642.png:) 

This gives me the two days needed for curing + priming, and a few short days to paint!

 

There are a TON of things I'm unhappy with, but I'm simply out of time. Time to paint and start a new thread on Tuesday after it's cured and primed! ::D:

She looks great!

 

And she's bigger than I thought.  I think this is the first picture with something I can use as a size reference (your fingers).  Even more impressive!

Are you proud of it? You should be proud of it.

 

Honestly, not really. LOL. It's my first bust, so I learned a lot and that's a great thing! I'm not proud of it - there are a lot of things that aren't right and I want to restart it all. But sometimes you just gotta call it finished. :rolleyes:

Art is never finished, it is simply abandoned for other things.

But you should look at it and think about all the things you learned from it. You will look back at it with fondness one day.

Whew! Good, because I didn't think I could hide all these for much longer. And nothing ever seems "finished" to me, it's more like "finished enough." 

-coughs in an attempt to cover the sound of piles of various projects crashing down in the distance-

I did! That's why I said it was great that I learned things. I've yet to look fondly at my old art, though I appreciate the learning process.

Looking back at old art is more like...

Give it 10 to 20 years, it will happen. You're still too close to it.

Give it time, there's more important things to worry about. Like whether or not to buy Elder Scrolls Online.

Oh I'm not fussed about it. I've got other things to learn, and I'm happy to appreciate learning experiences without liking the final result. ::):

      Whoo! Time to paint for ReaperCon! RUSH RUSH RUSH RUSH

       
      I don't paint very often, and now that I'm entering a competition, it's painfully obvious that I don't know any techniques past basic color blocking and washing in shadows.
      I need to try a whole bunch of new things. So! Let's learn:
      - Dark elf skin (I want purple dark elves, to be specific)
      - Soft, gray leather
      - Wild hair color blending
      - Fire
      - OSL from the fire!
       
      First, dark elf skin. I found the first page of @Corporea's Drow bust very helpful - her initial attempt was much too purple for her needs, but super close to how purple I want mine to be! I've also gathered my own mess of colors to test out fun things!

      (Holy moly, I haven't done a WIP since Spring 2016)
       
      HOLY MOLY, how have I never painted a dragon??
      I went through my stuff - I have a BOX of unpainted dragons. Thanks, Bones III. We're fixing that right now!
       
      Questgiver here:
      I choose you, Three Star Stormwing!  
       
      My rolls from this morning (also here):

       
      I actually got some really lovely rolls here. Even though one of them is pure black, which limits me to 4 colors instead of 5, the heather blue and cloudy grey look nice together.
       
      Unfortunately for contrast, they sort of... blend? Together? Learned artists, what's the word?
      If I were to take all the color out of the heather blue, it would look exactly like the cloud grey.
      I did check to see if my eyes were learning - they are!

       
      So here is my dragon. My 3 rolled colors on the right, and my liner and white on the left. He's pinned but I still need to do some quick green stuffing!

      “They always say time changes things, but you actually have to change them yourself.†- Andy Warhol  
      2015 was a really big year of emotional recovery for me. It's taken several years, but I truly felt that change last year. So with that progress in mind, I decided I wanted more. I've dedicated 2016 to learning about my favorite thing in the whole wide world - ART!
      I've got a lot to learn and a lot of time to get back. I'm going to make it worth my while to make time for art. I'll be using this thread as a goal marker if you would like to learn with me.
       
      These are my 2016 Goals:
       
      PAINTING
      I would like to have a dragon and a snowglobe done this year. I want to have a ReaperCon entry as well. Progress will be posted on the normal part of the forums.
      - Mini Painting - Speedy Swashbucklin' Sea Scamps, Pokemon themed ReaperCon/Spring Exchange
      - Non Mini Painting - Drink Coasters,

Whether it's terrain or a Parading Penguin Present Party, I want to start! - Sculpting completed - Pokemon themed Spring Exchange, wolf lying down and campfire - Sculpting in progress - Learning to sculpt thread!   DRAWING I have a sketchbook that I'd like to fill up by the end of the year by drawing in it for a few minutes every day.

The rest can be seen on my Facebook albums, which are set to public. You can add or follow me if you would like.    Longest consecutive streak: 245 Days (May 1-December 31) 316/365 = 86%!!
