Rough the Magic Dragon

Postby CrumbReaper » Sun Mar 27, 2016 12:14 pm

started another and will be step by step updating the WIP just to keep me motivated, not convinced this is the best
choice for a "my first figure sculpt" but I'm going for it anyway #notquiterightinthehead

the rough out of the body shape and cut into 3 portions

Thanks, been nagging myself for ages to try a figure, thought I'd better "go large" for the first one rather
than sculpting a humanoid......... the very thought is daunting!!

I've got the 3 body sections first coated with a mix of Greenstuff and Aves Apoxie, as I've put this on the main body
section has got little blisters appeared - anyone know what might have caused it just so I know for future?

Only seems to have occured on the larger torso, none on the head or tail..........

nice one - and guilty as charged - would that affect mold making before I go any further with it? (you know - just in case!!)

I can probably make a stronger core shape from some bath panel like I did with the Tree of Doom.........

My heart goes out to Andy on that project. The dragon looks amazing though, I re-read the blog on it
before starting this yesterday, just to focus my brain and take onboard what Andy says about lessons
learned etc....... I think my dragon is a lot less ambitious, so fingers crossed!! 8)
