3D Modelling... the traditional way

I recently got tired of digital art, so I decided to get myself some wires, tin-foil, acryl colors and Super Sculpey. As first try I decided to make one of the bunnies of my game MindScape. I was afraid of it ending up as a piece of... clay... but I'm actually happy with how it turned out. The proportions may not be 100% true to the original and the paintjob may not be perfect, but I'm still proud of my little baby.
Hopefully I'll find the time to start on another figurine soon.

Anyways, here it is, rendered using my bare hands, sculpting sticks and Super Sculpey, textured using acryl paint. Tell me what you think or post your own work if you've tried traditional sculpting / modelling yourself :)

Thanks to both of you!

Can't wait to see your finished MindChamber, MindChamber. I love how you involve non-clay parts, very inspiring.

I like it. If you made the detailed paint (eyes, mouth) it would look terrific. It is still fantastic though.

That is a suave job my friend. I think it looks good. I haven't messed with anything clay like in a year or so. I think its about time I started up again. Maybe my stuff will turn out as good as yours did.

Moar MOAR! lol

It's great but the arms are too big, but that should be easy to fix.

It's rather hard to get a really smooth surface, but then again I might not have found the best way to do this yet.

Yeah, that's one thing that bothers me about the proportions. But it's already cured and painted, so unfortunately it's too late to fix anything. However it's never too late to learn ;)

Looks pretty good, but the paint job is a the weak point here. It could be a bit smoother and the tongue, in particular, seems quite poor, which is a shame since the bunny is obviously pretty well made!


Fun: THAT IS THE BENEFIT OF DIPLOMATIC IMUNITY!

Quite awesome that your broadening your horizon, Heretik. I have to a agree with Vert on his points, and implore you to do more of these! ;-) The character of this piece just screams out insanity and I could see why your proud of your work It looks like your using a looped copper wire as a base? Something tells me that was the final touch! "I'm a battery!!"

I'm not good with paint, but yes, I guess I'm also guilty of getting lazy towards the end. (njeehhh)
For the base I've build an armature with wires and wrapped it in tin foil for volume. I've documented the whole process here :)

Here's a pic of the armatur, without the tin foil.
