Alas, no, but I really should now that finding work is so difficult. I'll definitely post something if I do get back to sculpting. Though a question--when using Sculpey, do you always use a wire-in-wood armature, or is it all right not to, since I don't have a lot of wood lying around?

You can make a floating armature that goes past the bottom of the foot and loops into a ring at the very bottom to form it's own stand. I've seen lot's of sculptors do this and get excellent sculpts. They cook the sculpt with a heat gun so the exposed wires at the bottom don't have to go in the oven.

Ah, that's interesting, and worth considering, other than the lack of heat gun. Would putting it in the oven with exposed wires lead to tragedy?

No. If your wires are metal the sculpt will be fine in the oven. I completed this guy with a heat gun:

Okay, great! I really will get back to sculpting one of these days. Plus that sculpt you made looks great--did you use Super Sculpey firm for it?

I mixed Super sculpey firm grey and regular pink Super Sculpey - 50/50 mix. I never use firm grey Sculpey by itself.

Sometimes I tear into them and don't get enough pics showing the process. Like the next two don't have nearly as many pics due to deadlines...:(

I can fall in and out of the habit of shooting WIPs on a nightly basis; I'm currently out of the habit...

It can be disruptive when you have a flow going.

That's it, exactly-- but then again, at the end of the day when you're sort of shifting from one side of the brain to the other, sometimes you don't mind so much... :iconjustkiddingplz:

Sometimes I forget and get so far along the sculpt you can see the huge jumps in the images. If the flow is there I won't break it. I lost concentration once taking too many images and the sculpt came out disjointed and I just lost interest in completing it. Looked terrible, LOL.

Yep-- WIPs really can fuck things up-- "observing the process will change it", as Built To Spill once said...

Wish my armatures were that simple!! Nice progressional!

I stopped making complex armatures because they would end up sticking out of the final sculpt. That used to drive me nuts.
