Dragonling WIP by xiShadowWolfx Dragonling WIP by xiShadowWolfx
▀▄▀▄▀▄▀▄▀▄▀▄▀▄▀▄▀▄▀▄▀▄▀▄▀▄▀▄▀▄▀▄▀▄▀

I've been working on this dragonling sculpture over the last few weeks, figure I'd post it here for people to see.
It's not finished yet, but it's getting there.

I have never done anything like this before. Ever. So it's an.. interesting learning experience.

-

Sculpted with Super Sculpey over a wire/foil armature.
Also, If you're wondering about the other dragon, That was my original project, but I was unsure how to best use the clay, so I made the smaller one as a test, and as practice to see how it went when It comes time for baking. I'm glad I did, Ive learned quite a bit from it.

Finished dragon here;

This looks great, I really like he scales. I was wondering, do you have something you use to cut them so they are identical or do you just cut the, by hand?

I didn't use anything to cut them, I sculpted each individual scale by hand. ^^

Okay.

1) How do you keep the sculpey so smooth, without any fingerprints or indents?
2) How do you do the scaling? I haven't been able to figure out how.


Thank you so much x3

I always end up with fingerprints all over my sculptures. ^^; I use a paintbrush to lightly smooth them out.
And for the scales, I made each scale individually and stuck them on one at a time. For the smaller scales on the face and the tip of the tail I carefully craved them in. It's very time consuming, but is totally worth it when its done. :)

Hope that helps, even if a little. :)

JUST ONE MORE QUESTION, IF YOU DON'T MIND.

How did you make the wire base for the wings?
