Cool, once classes come out, lets just find a time that neither of us are booked and we'll grab a table and have fun pushing putty. Others would be welcome as well.  I have done this after my How Not to Suck: Sculpting Edition class in the past; it is a lot of fun.

 

 

That's right, there are classes!!!!! I want to take the sculpting ones!! ::D:

 

 

I highly recommend it.  There are always a good selection by some of the greats (and in my case somewhat adequates).

 

don't make me come over with the express purpose of bonking you on the head. I have other reasons i would prefer to come over.

To explain the first post a bit better - I've got my sketchbook out and drew what I wanted to sculpt! This way I can clearly see what I want to sculpt and it keeps my daily drawing going. It's also n

You try sitting next to Julie and Bob for the last two years.  Next to them I'm happy feeling somewhat adequate.  At least they let me at the table.

You are coming to ReaperCon, right?  You and I can sit down and work on textures and such if you like.

 

Yes, please. I would love that! I've looked online for different tutorials, but I haven't found many decent ones for green stuff or for fur in general. I suspect that it's much easier to see in person.

Oh absolutely.  It's just humbling that's all.

It's been a while! July has been busy, but I've been diligently chipping away (or building up?) at my sculpting.

 

Imgur is not behaving at the moment so I'll have to rehost and resize later.

 

Some silly sculpts while I get the feel of green stuff and sculpey, and discover just how much fuzz/cat hair is in the room.

And my wolf bab! Fur is still silly. Maybe I should cut in the shadows of the fur, instead of the fur pieces? Does make sense? Is that a thing? I'll try it this weekend!

THE FUR (See first fur in the post above).

 

Caption from FB:

I bugged Andy several times over the weekend.... I learned a lot! 1f603.png:D

It's good-ish. It's much better than my first several attempts at fur.

It taught me three lessons: what happens when my layer is too thin, when I start trying to add detail too soon, and when my sculpting tool isn't lubricated enough.

Whoo! Learning things!

The next thing I learned at ReaperCon - faces!

FB caption:

The snarky dark elf I made in Derek Schubert's sculpting faces class!

The class was awesome! I'm bugging you next! 1f603.png:D

Unfortunately I'll be busy this weekend - partly work, partly oh-man-Skyrim-HD-I-can't-wait!

 

But I'll be sculpting Nerali Fendyn, Dunmer Battlemage next week!  ^_^

No sculpting this week ::(:

 

But for a good reason! I received some anatomy books from my better half and it reminded me that I need to get the basics done first! So I'm working on drawing fundamentals. I'm so ready to sculpt RIGHT NOW but if I can learn to see basic shapes and anatomy first, my sculpting should be much better. ^_^

      2020 was STILL spent on my brain and learning, even if my hands wouldn't let me practice it.
      Between my arms getting worse and *gestures broadly in 2020,* that didn't leave much energy for socializing either.
      But now that I have fixed arms, I'm excited to pace myself get my butt into the art chair! Wooo! Nevermind, my arms are still dying and the doctor said I have to pace myself.
      As much as I would like to continue with green stuff sculpting, I just can't sculpt physically as long as I can digitally. So for now, digital practice it is!
       
      While I couldn't actually *do* anything with the information I learned over the last year and a half, I took tons of notes and tried to reread them when I could.
      I'm happy to list the videos and books if folks are interested. :)

      Wooo! Since I have arms again, I can paint again!
       
      I know it can be more difficult to get better blends on larger surfaces, but some semblance of brush control seems more important to get back first. That seems easier to do with larger areas first. And I've been dying to work on this piece for years, so it all works out!
       
      These bookends were a gift from a friend a couple years ago. He was moving across the country and entrusted his more fragile Lord of the Rings pieces to me. I loved it. It's a Weta Workshop/Sideshow Collectible titled, "No Admittance."
       
      Bookends in their well-loved, gifted state and after a *very* good dusting last week!

       
      Primed a couple days ago! The weather has been kinda meh for priming so this is the best it's gonna get haha.

       
      I put some color on this morning! Reaper paints, of course. I grabbed The Hobbit audiobook from my library's app, so I'm very excited to cozy up with a good book and get to painting this winter!

       
      (Current time excluding prep: 1.5 hours)
       
      Bah. I'm gonna have to edit this later so Gandalf stays on the right side throughout my photos!
      Edit: You know, I think he looks better on the left. Then you can see both faces properly when turned.

      I apologize for not being on the forums (or doing art) so much lately! Between "2020," a new house, and my arm problems, I lost a lot of drive. Kinda hard to keep up the discipline of practicing and/or enjoying art when you physically can't do it....
       
      We finally saved up enough to get my right arm looked at in late September. I've only mentioned it a few times, but I've had problems in both hands for several years. I already couldn't do too much each day, but back in March my right elbow began to be in severe daily pain too. I couldn't do anything at all for seven months.
       
      My doctor listened (!), called for a test that we were able to do right away, and confirmed that I had pinched nerves in both arms. He said it likely happened when I was a kid and that's why I've had all those other misdiagnosed issues for so many years! Within 10 days, he performed the surgery on both elbows.
       
      I couldn't do anything for another month except pout on the couch LOL but I am finally cleared for all activities again! My hand strength is half of what it should be and it will take some time, but I have a list of exercises to fix that. He also set me up with another doctor who will look at my back problems in a couple weeks. Maybe I'll be able to start running around again too! I miss nature!
       
      I promised the doctor I would take it slow. But! I'm so excited to be back here with everyone for art and friend time!
       
      So how are you all holding up?? I've missed well over 400 pages in the Randomness thread!

      Started painting during the pandemic but was really intimidated by basing. Finally picked up some supplies and based my first couple models. Really improved the overall quality and aesthetic.

      I had to change the title since apparently "March of the Murlocs" is already a thing in the current game. And I was so proud of the name, too!
       
      My husband loves his gift (the biggest and bestest success!!!) but it would have been great if my painting for my ReaperCon entry wasn't so awful two years in a row.
       
      All the details, rambling love stories, and modding/creation details are in my WIP thread here!
