Gwaine and Apple - Sculpey by sparrowcrazy Gwaine and Apple - Sculpey by sparrowcrazy
Gwaine from the Merlin 2008 tv-series. Lives in my Flower pot.

This sculpture started out as someone else. It was supposed to be a woman....

However the sculpey had a better idea and the more I worked on it the more it looked like Gwaine.. so after a few changes to make him look more male.. (this included flattening him out) this was the result.^^

I'm really fond of this one, it's the best human-sculpture I've made so far, and it's deifinitely the one with the most detailed body.

I really like the legs, though you can't see it very well on the pic they look very real compared to the lumps my other sculptrues ahve had so far.=P

The face painting could need some work but considering it's a bloody miracle when the faces don't turn out like picasso paintings I suppose I should be happy.>.<

Of Course Gwaine has his apple. Apple-love <3

..and he doesn't have any friends.. so I'll probably have to do a Merlin so he has someone to talk too.^^

This is amazing, really, I've never sculpted a human, too scared of screwing up haha. Love the paint job too - is it just painted super sculpey?

Haha it was easier than I thought actually.=) I have a few other human sculptures but they where made pretty basic, this was the first one I tried to do anatomically correct so to say, except the hands.. it's a pain making fingers on small sculptures.=P

really? I might try to make something human with it then. Did you use an armature for this? :)
Yeah I can imagine, I'd hate to try fingers and toes and things on something so tiny. It's hard enough getting biggish things correct :P

Nope, I never use armature with sculpey if I can avoid it. But they will ahve to be baked laying down, I used to lean then agasint bakingforms before but they tended to turn out leaning forward of backwards in the end.>.<

And be sure the feet are even.. otherwise it won't be able to stand.XD

Really? Ack, I'd hate using so much clay with such a delicate thing as a human body, imagine the limbs snapping @_@ scawy.
Doesn't lying them down flatten the back somewhat? And any details on it :O
Hahaha imagine that. I'm not great at weighting my sculpts correctly so I'll have to practice before I take a human on. =P

Well the ones I did aren't that large so if I added armature they would have to be bigger. I don't think there's much of a risk of anything snapping, as long as you don't dropp them or anything and even them I'm not sure they would break. I did use a stick in the sword, but it was just to keep it straight.^^

Well yes a little bit.. but I haven't found any larger problem with it really, the hair got a little flatter but it's not noticable.=)
