so, uh, im starting to realize how underdeveloped the sculpture community on deviantart is. there are very few sculptors and the work gets very poor reception. that's pretty upsetting to me. if any of you know about an online community that is highly supportive of sculpture, please tell me about it. 
Totem B by Zanikal
Totem B
a little guy that i sculpted as a materials test (and for practice) - he stands about 2 inches tall. his insides are aluminum foil, his bulk is super sculpey, and most of the details are sculpey firm. i made him to test sculpey firm's sculpting performance and to test glove molds/material compatibility. ill probably give him a paint job later :) 
Inquisitor Shemalat - WIP wire frame 2 by Zanikal
Inquisitor Shemalat - WIP wire frame 2
this is the frame/skeleton of my next mask (BACK VIEW), it is made of galvanized steel, floral wire, aluminum mesh, and aluminum foil - this might look a little ridiculous (as in, way more work than necessary) and you're probably right! but this makes it so that i don't have to use nearly as much clay (it would crack at that thickness, anyway), and so that the thin layer of clay has a very sturdy foundation that acts like rebar does in concrete. the frame easily took 15 or more hours, i honestly was not keeping track, but it is totally worth it to make sure the final piece will not fall apart under stress. i think that i will use more wire mesh in the future, as this makes the process much faster, but unfortunately it does not seem as sturdy - we will have to see how effective it turns out to be, as this is the first time i've used it. 
this frame will be covered with sculpey, then baked, molded in silicone, cast in wax, and then cast in bronze. i will probably make other copies in other materials as well. 
this is the design i am working off of (although it may change a bit as i work on it):…

Fairly eccentric, perfectionist, very unopinionated, and very curious. Contrary to popular belief, rather friendly.
