Another little update,

Sculpt on "The Stag" is pretty much finished!









You can see I added some texture to the base of the antlers, I use a resin sand medium for this, when I paint over it, it will look much more like a natural antler.

The demon mage is a bit further along than this today, but here's another pic of him from yesterday, I'll be doing the finished piece with his mouth open like this:

I use magic sculpt, it's a two part resin the chemically hardens in about an hour or so. I order it from these guys in California. http://www.kitkraft.biz/home.php

If you're comfortable with sculpting and working pretty fast, I can't recommend it enough. It smooths with water, adheres to any surface, doesn't need to be baked, and cures to a very tough hardness. it's a bit trickier to work with, and takes a million years to sand, but I prefer it to sculpey for this kind of work for sure.

I'm loving these! And the wip is awesome. I especially like that trouble boy so far. These make me wish I had 4 extra squadts so I could make a castle crasher's style theme.

Making wings:

I took more pics than this of my process, but my phone crashed over the weekend, and for some reason, some of them got lost. Sad

But the basic Idea is still here.

I start out with a simple wing shape made out of tinfoil:


I then do the first row of feathers, and allow it to cure and get the basic curvature before doing the rest of the feathers on that side, then that cures and I repeat the process on the back side. this process takes a couple days, but doing it in these small phases saves me lots of trouble from accidentally smooshing things or getting weird asymmetry from trying to get them all banged out in one go.



I wanted these wings to look a bit ragged and kind of crow-like, and I also wanted them to have a good span, so I decided to do a larger feather, which I think fits the character very well compared to the smaller feathers I have done in the past.

Also, I made some changes to the character as well, I thought it would be more fitting if he had sleeves to his robe as opposed to the chain mail arms in the sketch, making him a more proper looking mage. I wanted him to have a pose of kind of floating and casting a spell, the collector suggested haveing an arm stick out, which I loved the idea of, so I reworked that arm as well. Now he's really starting to take shape, at about 90% sculpted or so.











Here you can see the last phase of the wings where I added feathers over the post that goes into the back, giving the fairly heavy wing a bit more surface are to sit against the body and a better fit in general. The wings will be detached for shipping and need to be glued back on when the owner receives it:



I've also started the scenery base, cut I'll save that update for another day when it's a bit further along. Razz
