Polymer clay Martial Arts sculpture


Here I go again, challenging myself to do something new and difficult. I’ve decided to try to sculpt a Martial Arts sculpture. It actually didn’t start out that way but since the head was determined to become a male I had to change my plan. I’m so glad I did now but at the time it was really frustrating. So far, I’ve gotten the head sculpted and cured on the armature and the hands are sculpted.

I had a lot of trouble getting the hands correct but all in all I’m pretty happy with them. I might try to do a little more detail work on them tomorrow though. Here’s a photo of the pose I plan to use but keep in mind it will be a bit different, hopefully in a good way.

 

 

Here’s the head I came up with after much pushing and pulling, adding clay and taking it away. I’ve only taken a picture of the left hand but I did get the right one completed today too. I’ve also finished the armature and added a bit of the skeleton to it. I’ll get some shots of that in the morning, time for me to get a good nights sleep so I can work on this again tomorrow without yawning the whole time.
