WOAH that is realistic looking fire! I don't think I've ever seen 'furry' flames look so real! Do you know what would look really awesome, just as anotehr idea? If you had one that was darker coloured on the sides and then had that kind of fire-look all the way from the top of head, down the middle of the back and down the top of the tail. All your works are epic, especially this one, I just think that'd be another cool idea (in my head, anyway, lol, it might not look so good when done :XD:). Oh well, just a suggestion =P

This is beautiful! Your stuff just keeps on getting better :).

My personal two cents, if you want this artists's input anyways! It's very cool that each one of these is a one of a kind, but you may want to consider casting some day...molding and casting does not take away from something being special (I sculpt, mold, cast and paint, and sell my own work). I saw that you use sculpey. The problem with sculpey is how breakable it is, and the advantage of casting is you can cast in a durable resin, so your work will literally never break. I sculpt my originals in Supersculpey Firm, then do a silicone molkd and cast in fine polyurethane resin. It keeps all of the details, and they're near indestructible. Since these are mostly dolls you're doing, you could cast the faces with a very simple one piece mold...and then the body and paint jobs would still all be 100% unique. You could do this entire process by hand too, without equipment. You could also limit each to 5 dolls or less as well, so they would still be very limited. This would make you more money as I'm sure MANY people would buy more than one...but would also make the pieces nice and durable, so people could enjoy your art for years to come :). Even for yourself, your own pieces...you wouldn't have to worry about hours or days worth of work being destroyed if they fall or take a bump too hard.

This is just my personal 2 cents though..you can take it or leave it! I know what materials to buy and how to mold & cast though, so if you ever need help shoot me a note! Parts like paws or hands can be cast as well obviously. Great work though, I love how colorful your stuff is! take care.

Thank you for the info and the kind words! :thanks: I've looked into casting before but the process I was looking at seemed really complicated and time consuming. ^^; The faces are sculpted in sculpy but the ears and anything that may be fragile is sculpted in "Ultra Light Sculpy" which is slightly rubbery and bendable when baked and has passed all my high (rough handling and dropping tests) with ease. :D I tremendously enjoy sculpting each and every face and I like how each face is never the same, not just the paint and color job. :) So duplicates of the faces I wouldn't want to do but the feet on the other hand, I would honestly love to be able to cast a lot of feet. ^^;

You're welcome! Your stuff really is beautiful! I have been sculpting since a young age too...I can't remember if I found you on another site, or on DA or not first but I was like "Wow, that girl's a lot like me!" lol. I think you're a Christian too right? I can't remember. I've been drawing and sculpting since I could use crayons and play dough, and I'm 30 now :P...it takes a long time, there's so much to learn and practice. People are the hardest to sculpt, that's for sure.

That makes sense about the faces and wanting them different...if you can sculpt them fast enough then the molding/casting doesn't matter as much...and it will keep you sharp. You DEFINITELY do not want to be taking too much of your art time up with molding and casting. I made the mistake of getting a bit too caught up in that, I should have hired someone ages ago to mold and cast my larger figures. To mold and cast feet should be fairly simple though if pointy claws and such are blunt enough and not too crazy skinny. You can run into air pocket issues with pieces that are too thin, unless you hire someone else to mold and cast (then it doesn't matter).

You can probably mold and cast feet with a simple two piece mold which I can tell you how to make, and where to buy the supplies. It's complicated only trying to figure out what the heck to use, since there's a whole sea of materials on the market. The types of molds and resins I use are mixed by equal measurements, so you don't need a scale (for both the silicone AND resin). I just buy cheapy clear cups, or semi clear cups at target or Walmart, and pour equal amounts of part A and part B resin (or silicone). Then you just mix them together, and depending what resin you use, you can have a casting done every 15 minutes.

You may also want to consider what types of stuff you can make and sell that is flat backed or bottomed. A one piece mold is sooooooo easy to make and cast from. For example..this cartoony tarantula I made! I sculpted the little figure, hot glued him to a piece of cardboard, built a little clay wall around him (non hardening "Klean Klay" used for mold making..it's cheap)...then mixed equal parts A & B of silicone together..poured it over the figure...4 hours later the rubber cured and I had a mold. Then you just mix the resin the same way. This is the result --> [link] . Cute little figure..and a one piece mold! Basically the underside of the figure is where the top of the mold is...and where you pour the resin. Figures like my werewolf here though, who has legs and everything, and paces between the arms needs a two piece mold...which is a bit more complicated but not by much. [link]

The way the two piece molds are made is also very simple once you form a basic understanding.

It depends though, it's something you can definitely do, that will save you sculpting time for sure. But you can also pay to have a mold made and castings done. That's what I'm saving up for currently for that werewolf figure I sculpted. He's a NIGHTMARE to mold and cast...he's too big and detailed, and I get loads of airbubble problems in the detail work. It's going to cost me $450.00 just for the mold, and $50.00 per casting...but seeing as that I sell the castings fully painted for $300.00-$400.00, and the casting work costs me a lot in resin, and takes a few days to deal with all the airbubble flaws...for this particular piece it makes more sense to have someone else do the casting for me, from a new mold without the same airbubble issues mine has. This person has all the high tech expensive mold making equipment I don't have, and I want more time for making art not castings. However, the little tarantula I showed you, is much less complex, so it's an absolute cake walk that doesn't take me very long to make all on my own. This is also a flat backed pendnat of mine used with a one piece (it's two of my pendants linked..but each piece was only one mold) mold. --> [link]

So, that being said you may want to just pay for feet/other parts molds....depending on how big or complex they are. Molding and casting is soemthing you may want to learn though, I'm definitely glad I learned it,I just spent too much effort for too long with it. I doubt it would cost much more than $50.00 for a mold for a foot or something, and that mold would last for 50 or more castings. My werewolf is only so expensive do to the size, and detail, and undercuts. A foot or hand is fairly simple and small.

Either way feel free to shoot me a note. I can give you the link for the person I'll be paying for my werewolf (very sweet older couple, who run a family foundry business for the model horse industry). Or Google them, his shop is called "Resins By Randy".

But yeah, definitely look into casting feet one way or another :)..then you'll have more time to sculpt your faces, paint them, and make the cool bodies! That's what's so awesome about art...nothing can replace someone's skill and uniqueness, but there are soooo many tools of the trade to choose from for different tasks and to free up time for more creative focus. I'm getting into digital sculpting too, and it's way better than I expected.

I LOVE sculpting too...and I also am crazy about painting, I'm so excited having a new airbrush as well. i can't wait to paint the dragon castings once I get this dragon I'm doing done.

You're welcome, and no worries!Thanks for the compliment on my werewolf! I'm sure you can do one too if you wanted (or something similar), just keep practicing and NEVER fear leaving a comfort zone or assume you can't do something. Your stuff is already so far along and unique, just tackle whatever blanks or weaknesses you may notice in your own work. One thing I need to do is dive back into studying anatomy, but actually start memorizing what each muscle is and such...it's tedious but worth it.

The paint job is that soft because I used an airbrush, not just brushes :). I used one a while back in a special FX place, and when I was a kid...but finally invested in one about a month ago. What kept me from buying one before was the cost, not really knowing what to buy..and assuming it required specific types of paint. But I did some research, and I was able to mix a little bit of this "Flo Aid" liquitex stuff, and water, and thin down my cheapy Folk Art and ceramcoat, etc. paints to a milk consistency. An airbrush is something you may also want to invest in. They're not all that complex, I can give you some guidance on what to buy for that too if/whenever you're ready. I still use brushes, but for general shading you simply can't get the softness and realism. I'd be happy to help with any pointers since you do very similar work, I'd hate to see another artist have to go through the insanely long and tedious process of trying to figure all this stuff out. The materials and such I know to use took LOTS of searching, experimenting, and asking people about. So if I can help another artist save time, cool, lol.

Thanks for the advice! Although, I started out creating full sculptures for a few years [link] then converted to making them more intractable as Poseable sculptures later on. I used an airbrush to paint the full sculptures but finally went back to brushes since I found they worked better for me. Again thanks for all the info! :hug:
