This will def help me, mostly because where i live we dont really have sculpting tools and it bugs me xD and the expensive ones on teh internet dont help either haha
but im also having trouble finding wire for the base/skeletons of my scultpures(that i have never done be for, but the lack of tools and wire are preventing me soo..xD) do you know any hardware stores or online store that sell it for a decent price? maybe ive missed somehting while searching the internet haha. thanks and i love your sculptures!
Thank you for the comment! ^^ Yeah sculpting tools can be expensive. And you'll end up putting most of them away and you'll never touch them again XD For the armature wires, I always buy them at home depot or reno depot. They're A LOT cheaper there than they are in art stores.

Yes I know, her work is wonderful! She's one of the many artists who inspired me to try sculpting!
First of all, you have to think about how the skull of the animal is made. Use many references and start to build the animal from within, in shapes. You can worry about the details later. The first step is forming the right shapes and for that it helps if you have skeleton and muscles references of the animal. I have a folder on my computer with over 300 drawings/photos of different kind of animals! Do your research and practice! Actually when you think about it, it's just like drawing! Take your time and have fun!
Here's a list of very good sculpting books that you should definitely take a look at! They're my favorite references:
wow thatīs great! I love you for posting this <3 Will save a lot of money
could you please list some things you used to make these tools? I canīt identify all on the big pictures at the end D: Besides the ones you showed in your tutorial. I can only identify the keyring XD Oh and whatīs the thing you showed in the second picture? Thereīs a Hairclip, a nail, the "flat" one and ?
Thanks, glad you like it! The last thing is part of another hairclip, that was broken. On the last big pictures I've got different kind of nails, more loops and pins. But honestly, the only tools I use all the time are the loops made with the guitar strings and wires! I don't use the others as much. ^^'
