Mori Practices Sculpting!

Of course it is! You just learned several ways to NOT do things!::D: Which is actually incredibly important, because now your path to sculpting is a bit smoother because of it.

Sadly it seems the best way for use to learn is from our own mistakes. People in my family tend to be a bit stubborn (ha, understatement) and even when we get good advice we try to do it our way first. Good on you for keeping notes and continuing. I'd really like to be able to sculpt but have never put enough effort into it. Small conversions I can do but my few times trying to make a whole mini are unique to say the least.

RIP, Mr. Skeltal. You were too strong for your own feet.

 

I will continue my anatomy studies separately by drawing from the anatomy books and by drawing the muscles over photos - I'll probably put a few of my exercises here just for example, but I won't post those daily in a sculpting thread.

 

I'm going to finish making a bunch of little armatures today so that I can start practicing tomorrow, which leads to this question.

 

I have in my sculpting notes (I'm not sure where I got the info) to sculpt minis at a slightly smaller scale than what you want because you don't want all of your minis to be giants, and it gives you space for stretched poses. I was going to make a bunch of 32mm armatures for practice, which would mean 30mm, but when I compare the minis I own to an armature sheet, they are 35mm tall! :O So now I'm confused.

Are you saying this would have been Mr. Skeltal?

      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,
       
      SCULPTING Sculpt something! 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. I'd like to get better at drawing - I want to learn the fundamentals and develop my own unique blend of animated and realistic styles. I'll post my favorite drawings of the month here. 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%!!

      Apr: 9/30 30% - Ouch! I did a lot of lessons on those days, though. Lesson 2 completed! May: 31/31 100% - !!! Both challenges completed, and nearly finished Lesson 3.   Jun: 30/30 100% - !!! I did it again! A lot of fast sketches this month. Jul: 31/31 100% -   !!! 3 month streak! Cosplay and Overwatch sort of took over, though I did get some sculpting in!

      So way back, y'all probably remember that I got all excited about snow globes. Yeah. I haven't tested any of those materials. I started sealing my test pieces and kept seeing terrifying warnings everywhere. So the water part is on hold, but pleeease add to that post if you have any waterproof suggestions!
       
      Here's my sketch for it. I'm unsure about the fence. I'm hoping that running it next to the little guy in the front will lead you to the middle so they feel connected. I've been watching some art videos and they said that guiding your viewer's eye is important! I think I will -not- cross the bars on the fence. Then the fence will go in an easy direction to the middle of the globe without your eye stopping to figure out the X's. Save the detail for the "focal point," right? I've also got to figure out which side the slanted end of the fence should be.
       
      I'd also like to sculpt in little things on the side, like an empty mug of hot chocolate or a scarf, excitedly cast aside when the friends decided to make a snowman! Maybe add some teeny little pawprints in the snow....
       
      If I have time, I'd like to add in a surprise....
       

       
      Here they were as of last Friday! Over the weekend I cleaned and primed them. The snowman got some green stuff on his head because those mold lines were tough. I've started a basic ring of air dry clay on the base. It should be dry today and I can keep building it up.

       
      Next, the color scheme. I tried to color some ideas in a few weeks ago, but it's been difficult to not accidentally copy parts of the amazing one featured in the store. I end up adding too much yellow and green.... :S

      Say that 3 times fast!

      This will be a thread for my sculpting journey. Critiques and tips are GREATLY appreciated (I wouldn't mind a kind word every now and then too ).

      I'll get into more details later, but right now I'm looking to a nice Saturday night spent sculpting!
