all,
Decided it was time for me to learn to sculpt, so in my usual fashion I've deviated away from the conventional learning methods/styles/subjects and jumping in head first .
As I've also wondered about folk's fascination with the whole Zombie/post apocalypse genre and being of the mindset "can't knock it you've tried it" it's now my turn to try it .
I did manage to get most of the core covered in modelling clay today however that stuff was past it's use by date and had to be stripped off again. So just waiting for the shops to open and get some fresh stuff to work with. Fimo for base coverage and green stuff for details (shirt, teeth).
So here goes, first off the inspirational art work (credits to an unknown artist) and then the bare bear. No it's not a bl___dy Minion :





As always with anything from me, feel free to poke a stick at it .

Cheers.
It's easy to tell I'm new to sculpting - shouldn't have fixed the arms yet .
Looks more like a scary gummy bear than anything else at the moment, however a few more blobs of putty and it might start to resemble the picture (fingers and toes crossed ).
I'm sure the figure sculptors are wondering what the heck I'm doing and using so in my defense "there's method in my madness" (and cheapness) .



Sorry about the poor photo (hate using the phone), next installment once it has some real shape.

Okay then, it's the early hours of the morning and this is bugging me so I've added a few more layers to get the shape more correct.
Unfortunately the arms are providing more and more problems SO I decided to cut them off.
This didn't go quite as planned and has created a few new problem areas so I think it's best I consign Version 1 to the bin and restart on Version 2.
Hopefully I've learn't a few things from V1 and will avoid the pitfalls with V2 .
Old dogs can learn new tricks, sometimes it just takes a bit more training.
Cheers for stopping by.

Being a "waste not, want not" person I decided to plug on with this so managed to reattach the arms and build up certain areas. Then with a bit of carving (this is more a carving than a sculpt ) it has started to take on the appearance of evil Pooh



Still needs a lot more work around the lower jaw.

I'd forgotten that phrase
Not a lot happening at the moment.
Carving a few more teeth, however did get asked if I'd consider making one of Pooh's mates:



Have to wait and see how this pan's out.
