Creature Bust WIP-Building wings by AntWatkins Creature Bust WIP-Building wings by AntWatkins
I wanted to post a WIP picture of a new sculpt I am working on. Building the wing armature at this point. If all goes well, I plan on making molds of this one.
Sculpted in Monster Clay!

Thanks for looking! :)

ooh I wonder if milliput would do the same job then...
Thanks again - sometimes you just need a wee idea to get you going in the right direction.

Not sure, never used milliput. I think it is a 2 part epoxy though right? If so, then it should work out fine.

Really nice to see a work in progress, especially what's going on with the armature!
What are you using to keep stop your armature joints from moving/bending etc when you start to work on top of it?
I'm at the stage where I'm having major issues with armatures everytime - having to rework areas as a result.
You got some blue stuff at the top of your wing joint - is that blue tac?
Am loving your work - you're an inspiration! :D

Thank you very much!!
That stuff you see is Magic Sculpt. It is an epoxy clay, when it hardens, it is as tough as concrete. I use that for the armatures, but be careful when you use it...it you put it on an armature and then find you must fix something or re-pose your armature, it is VERY tough to get it off or break it.

Thanks. I use aluminum wire for the armature, with aluminum wire form for the wing mesh. I use magic sculpt epoxy clay for strengthening the armature, and I use an oil/wax based clay called Monster Clay for the sculpture itself.
