This took so much work it wasn't even funny.. My first attempt at making a humanoid character! Made this for a friend for Christmas.. And I'm super happy with how it came out!

I kind of got carried away with the grass... and ended up regretting it because of how fragile they were. Lesson learned, figure out how to make that sturdier! Oh well.

I'm guessing the "friend" was good ol' Chuggaaconroy? Amazing statue by the way! Wish I could get my hands on one like it...
:O I just saw this (before looking at the comments) and was like "I swear I saw this on a Chuggaaconroy's Facebook!" And then I looked at the comments and saw that I was right!

How did you make the core of this? Was it a foil skeleton or just full clay? This came out really nice. What glaze did you use as well? I've tried a couple clear paints and they get really sticky after a little or when it's hot out.

-I'm sorry I ask so many questions...

Hey there! :) Yup, you were right about that! Haha. Don't worry about asking questions. If it helps out I'm more than happy to answer!

The core of this is made up of a wire frame wrapped in foil. There were two parts of this-- the head half, and the body half. The head half was just a foil ball with a hole underneath. Near the neck-portion of the body I just had a wire hoop sticking out of it so I could later attach the head to the body after the first bake.

As for a glaze I just used a clear, acrylic sealant. It's fairly easy to use, just spray the whole thing and let it sit. :)
Thank you so much! I really love your work!
I wish you could teach me how to do that. It's been ages since I've done any sort of sculpting and I miss it.

Sculpting's definitely a lot of fun. :D I mainly learned from sculpting tutorials here on DeviantART! :) Try searching for a few, they have really good tips!
Thanks for the suggestion! I'll add it to my list of hobbies to get into.

Let me guess. This friend goes by the name Chugga. Chuggaaconroy.
