Sculpture WIP!

As I said on my intro post, I like to craft things.

This time I'm showing you WIP shots of a figure I'm doing, I'm sure you'll know what it is quite fast c:

What could this be?...
DSC_1250
A Sylveon of course!
DSC_1251
DSC_1252

I wanted to take a shot of the mouth (it's really cool and I'm really proud of it ;w; ), but instead I got the derpiest shot ever XD;
DSC_1253

The photos don't make it justice... I blame it on being late and having no natural light source :I (also snapping the photos with my phone).

Now... why a Sylveon? Well, I blame it on all those collectors showing off their Sylveon stuff and me thinking "it can't be that hard to sculpt a Sylveon"... well, let me tell you I was wrong, especially with the frigging ribbons!! Dx

I still have to sculpt the ribbons' tails and make a base for this guy... everything made of sculpey! I can't wait to bake him (it's going to be quite a challenge XD; ) and work towards the finishing touches (and of course paint).

Wow, Sylveon's mouth looks really well-done!
I sculpted a mega Charizard X (which is still unfinished) as my second figure ever xD And I also made an open mouth but yours is faaar better. I had such difficulties with the mouth.
Pretty excited to see the finished result :)

Thanks! I'm really happy with the outcome of the mouth x3

How did you make your mouth? For mine I sculpted the lower jaw first and with a needle I carved the tongue and put the teeth together onto it, then I sculpted the upper jaw separately and once I was happy with it and added the teeth I blended it with the head.

I should finish it this week! I baked the figure and the base yesterday, and tomorrow after an exam I'm going to get some imprimant to make the surface more uniform and easier to paint c:


I hope you post pictures of your M!Charizard X!

That's similar to what I did. I also sculpted the jar parts seperately, and then I added the lower jaw to the head and upper jaw. But I tried to change a few things in the inside of the mouth afterwards and everything, it was really a pain in the ass >.<
It was my second figure ever, and I am really inexperienced. I don't sculpt at the moment too. I just sculpted because I made a Leafeon as a Christmas present for my boyfriend since this is his favorite Pokemon. ^^ I also made two keycheins for my sister for Christmas, but that was basically it. Might try it again though because it's really fun, and of course I have to finish Charizard :D

Yes, I once posted pics of the unfinished Zard on the community. It's in this post, you can have a look :)

Wow Leafeon looks lovely!!! I love the detail in the eye and the gradient on the leaves *--* you did a wonderful job!

The Zard looks really powerful! Can't wait for you to finish it >w

Aw thank you :>
Zardie has a lot of mistakes though. It is really uneven in some parts and the feet look strange :D But I am pretty satisfied nevertheless since it was only my second figure.
I draw as well just like you btw :)
Ah and unfortunately, using your Helioptile drawing as my profile pic still didn't work out :( I don't know what's the problem.

Nice to see another polifacetic comm member x3

That's... really weird, I can turn it into a profile pic just fine and another user managed to turn a drawing I did for them into a profile pic as well O_o

If I make it into a profile picture, is there any way you can make it yours afterwards? (I think I'm not making sense)
