A forum like that would be sweet as fuck, man, a place where artists could share tips, tricks and techniques and inspire each other. I used to browse DA for inspiration, but holy fuck is it hard to find the good stuff behind all the sonic fanfiction and the overall cringy bullshit, especially if we're talking about sculpting. Feel free to pass a link to your profile, tho, I'd love to see your work, man

And thanks for the tips and that diagram regarding armature making, it certainly cleared some shit here. I'll see if I can make it work. I've already drawn some sketches for my next piece and it's definitely gonna need some inner structure to hold it in place so this will come in handy for sure

Godspeed, my dude, keep that sweet ass art going on

Glad I could help you out! My girlfriend and I are running a taxidermy business so my DA page was converted for it, but my sculptures are still there and I still post what I'm sculpting. toothnclawtaxidermy.deviantart.com/

Feel free to contact me anytime about sculpting stuff, I'm full of years of sculpting information, haha.

You should totally post your work around here, man. Do you have a website or something where people can see your creations? Like, man, you have something quite cool going on here for what I see

As for the skeleton thing, I've seen a handful of videos on youtube, but I still can't get a grasp of it. I've tried three or four times to make structures, but they end up either feeble as fuck or they straight up fall apart. Do you build everything from a single continous piece of wire or do you use different pieces for the limbs and such? And if so, how do you attach different pieces of wire together? I've tried to wrap thinner wires to the main pieces to tie it all together, but I can't tighten it enough and it ends up moving around, wiggling and shit. Las time I tried the weight of the plastiline made it all collapse once I started adding material. Also, how do you attach it to the base? I've seen people screwing the wires to pieces of wood, but fuck me if I know how that works. I feel clumsy as fuck with all this, I don't know what I'm doing wrong

Also, I've never used polymer clay, I've only used Chavant plastiline so far. Is polymer better for this kind of things? How does it behave in terms of malleability, texturing, etc.? Can you reuse the material after you're done? I'm sorry if I ask too many questions, as I said, I'm just starting with this and it's amazing to talk to someone who has experience in these endeavors

Thanks man, I appreciate it. I used to post on DA but not so much anymore because the community there for high-level sculpting is almost non-existant. If I had the spare cash I'd almost host a forum for sculptors like us seeing as there isn't really any active community for it.

As for armatures, I like to use a main wire of a thicker gauge that runs from the head down the tail (if there is a tail, if there's no tail I make the main wire go down into a foot and into the base.) I use shorter lengths of wire to make the limbs which I attach to the main wire using a thinner gauge jewelry wire and epoxy putty such as this hw.menardc.com/main/items/media/HENKE004/ProductLarge/251-6715Epoxy-PuttyStick431348.jpg

This will make the limbs strong and able to hold up to the weight of the material. I then bulk the entire thing out with tinfoil for added strength and also so I don't waste so much clay. Have this shitty dragon I drew up with an armature to help explain it better, haha.

The clay I use is polymer clay which is soft until you cure it in an oven and it turns to a plastic-type material. Sculpey is good but I find that it's brittle and small pieces break easily after baking. That's why I'm switching to Kato clay which is stronger. If you want to go super-strong (or can't bake it in an oven to cure) I'd use Apoxie Sculpt, it's really handy. Polymer clays hold detail really well and there's tons of stuff you can do with it. Some of the boils on the Bloater were made by liquefying polymer and applying it with a syringe. It isn't reusable, though, it's more for permanent sculptures that you want to harden and paint. For reusable material I like Monster Clay, it isn't greasy like plastacine tends to be.

That's cool as fuck, my dude, what material did you use there? Looks so fucking detailed and sweet. You got more of your art you can share?

I haven't made much yet, four masks and an alien head, pic related. For my next project I wanna make a chibi Nyarlathotep, but I'm yet to figure out how to build skeletons for full body statues, so I may just make another alien head
#84 - Underground (09/20/2016) [-]
I used a blend of Super Sculpey and Sculpey Firm but more recently I'm switching to Kato Polyclay because it's stronger and won't break as easily. And for sure, I make stuff all the time so I got pics of my projects like crazy.

That head is wicked! Reminds me of a mask I made a few years ago to wear for Halloween. Boss let me wear it to work so I could scare the kids. Also search on Youtube for 'sculpture armatures' or something similar and you should get a bunch of stuff on how to make the internal 'skeleton' structure. I use wire, tinfoil, and epoxie putty to make mine. For dragons or other winged creatures you'll want to build a support system from wire mesh for the webbing. I've made many a dragon.

The Bloater isn't quite done yet but he will be soon, I just have to find the time to work on him.
