:. Sculpting Process .: by XPantherArtX :. Sculpting Process .: by XPantherArtX
Finalllly! Took me forever! X) My very first 'tutorial'. It's the process I go through with every sculpture, along with some tips. Hope it's not too confusing or anything! Let me know what you think! :w00t:

Here's the final piece:

And my other tutorials:

** EDIT: I updated my tutorial a little, it's more up to date with how I work now. ^^

** EDIT2: For the paint, I switched back to ceramcoat paints! I like them better now ^^; But still, you can try both liquitex and ceramcoat and see which one YOU like best! ^^

What did you use for the armature?

I use aluminum or steel wires for my armatures (usually 14-16-22 gauge) and I wrap everything up with aluminum foil and masking tape. =)

You can use masking tape in armatures?

...
Hell, if I would've known that, I would've waited to start my current project!

do you have any tips on how to make the anatomy of a dog sculpture look right?

Well the key to getting the anatomy right on any animal is using a lot of references! Look at a lot of photos, study the animal and the way they move. Also, when making your armature, it's good to make it according to a real dog skeleton, like this one: yasirkhalid.files.wordpress.co…

Print it out and using your wires, built the armature using this as a guide. ^^
