Dragon diorama WIP 2 by AntWatkins Dragon diorama WIP 2 by AntWatkins
Still in the works, about to remove him from temporary base into his sculpted base (this will be a diorama of him busting through a fire swirled cavern with chunks of rock, soot and ash everywhere). He will plug into the base at his waist and 2 hands (they will also be sculpted to the base). He'll have both hands gripping rock climbing through. Just have to make 1 final adjust. on his right arm, and more flamework to finish...I will sculpt a few tiny demons coming through the ruins along with him

simply amazing sculpt, do you bake the horns and teeth separately before applying them to the sculpt o do yu just smack them on as you go homping not to bump in to them? having a real hard time with horns and such, plus the webbing for the wings is a real pain in the behind. again awsome work m8, your one of my heroes.

Wow thank you very much!!! I really appreciate that!
Sometimes I bake horns and teeth first, it just matters what might be easier for each individual sculpt. For closed mouths with teeth showing, I dont bake the teeth, I sculpt them right onto the mouth (if the teeth are showing with a snarl or something). For webbing, it is easiest to use very thin mesh as a armature, then sculpt the clay on there. That way it stays on.

Thank you so much!! I really appreciate the kind comment! It did take much time, but it is so worth it in the end! I am currently sculpting another dragon which is also taking quite a lot of time: But I do love the dragons!
Thank you again!!!!

If I end up getting this molded, then I'll paint a casting.

Thanks everyone!

Minicreatures, kind of yes, instead of drawing ideas I just sculpt them right out...I skip the drawing process and jump right into the sculpting.

DesignEm: Thank you. I do, I use a bunch of different things for different effects: Pinpoints, loop tools, spoon tools, etc. mostly use sculpey but have also used WED clay, Chavant NSP, Chavant Le Beau Touche, Roma Plastillena, I also love to use Magic Sculpt for things like weapons, machine pieces, etc. Never used Wax! never actually tried it yet. I understand there are 3 consistencies: Soft, Medium and Hard. I imagine Hard would be perfect for fine detail, provided it is not too warm...and yes you can mold right from the sculpey, it works great.

do you use a lot of dental tools/ picks,etc to get into the smallest details? Do you strictly use sculpty or what else have you tried? Have you tried taking molds out of sculpty, does it work well? I have been trying to cast my clay sculptures in bronze -(once I've taken a mold and done a slush wax) - still trying to get the hang of sculpting in wax, if it gets too soft, doesn't work as well to carve. Very cool BTW.
