Figurine WIP/ tutorial part 2 dress and folds by sculptor101 Figurine WIP/ tutorial part 2 dress and folds by sculptor101

Update: 6/12
I made a simple video on Youtube at: youtu.be/mP-Lj5bahU4
Please let me know if this works better, turn it on highest resolution for better viewing.
Please give me some feedback for improvement. Thanks a lot!
--------------------------------------------------

Here comes part 2 for the dress and folds, it's very long photos, sorry I can't find a better way... =_=

Please also refer to part 1 - armature and legs
sculptor101.deviantart.com/art…

Many friends had asked me "How do you make figurines, can you show me the process?" I had therefore made a tutorial that divided in several areas of the figurine while I was working on a self project, a project that wasn't base on commission, actually they were sort of work in progress. You may see a lot of photos taking during sculpting. It's long hours of work that I did beside my work. Please look for yourself and compare the differences of how it was made. I tried taking shoots as many as I can at the "turning points" in angles.

I know you might have a lot of questions, the materials, tools, methods... I would suggest you may look for my other tutorials for commonly asked questions. I don't really know how long this project may take. But I'll keep updated as it goes on. The pictures shown an angel figurine in progress. Enjoy!

 

Title: It has a title but I'm not going to say it now, please wait until you see the whole scene when nearly finish.

Material were used: Super Sculpey, jumbo paperclips, crazy glue, baby powder.

Please also refer to the following related tutorials:

Figurine WIP/ tutorial part 2 dress and folds

I'm guessing the torso and legs are baked; do bake the dress at anytime during the molding?  If you do, insert a daft picture of an oven at key point.  ;-)

You are so great that keeps on learning! Wait until you see the self project that I'm working on, I can't wait to go back working on it beside my work. Well, works are for living, but I need some fresh air for myself. ^^

Ah, cheers Alex. You using sculpey like that makes me want to keep trying till I beat the clay in to submission. I find it easier to use Chavant but can see the benefits of baked sculpey for Master parts; Thanks for putting the tutorials up.

looking forward to seeing what you are making. :) Personally, I think the current piece in the tutorial, is an Angel taking some-one to Heaven!! The clue might be in the name of your Studio!! lol. :)

Hey Tim, you are welcome! You may use any method that is good for you, also the materials. Whatever make the sculpture works would be good! You are right about the scene you had seen. But still wait a bit to see the whole meaning that I was thinking. ^^

This is very impressive, the dress looks so realistic :D I'm not so good at sculpt cloth D:
How did you make the dress 'float' around the ankle bit, the clay seems thin, wouldn't it not just colapse? Because gravity and things? :P
Reply
:iconsculptor101:
sculptor101 Featured By Owner Jun 11, 2014  Professional Traditional Artist
It is thin but workable for casting afterward, sort of illusion when you see the skirt, it is like a "V" shape that only very thin at the edge of shirt.

I found that making the tutorial and telling the process may help anyone who is working on folds. It's a nightmare if you don't know how to begin with.  So I thought why not just took photos during sculpting. They are dizzying but carefully see them bit by bit, imagine if you were me... Huggle!

Awesome... just awesome *_* Thanks a lot for showing us this step by step Hug
The dress looks really nice. It's so soft and (I don't know if I use this word right but I hope you understand anyway ^^) floating.

I'm looking forward to more pictures of this scene : )

And by the way: how do you make it that the sculpey doesn't collapse?? When I would make such a dress sooner or later the sculpey would lay on the leg >.>

Your are welcome and you know I'd like sharing... ^^
I tried making it like silk fabric which is soft and you mentioned and it sudden blows by the wind. She is floating above the ground. I'll keep updated as it goes on.

The clay... "I discuss with him a lot everyday".  :happybounce:  So I know pretty much what it is capable of in shapes. it's ok to lay it on the legs when you are sculpting, you would only need to left it up right before baking. Or at lease when the exterior is ok, bake first, come bake fix the inner areas of shirt after baked. ^^
