Big Luna Sculpt MANE COMPLETE by bigponymac Big Luna Sculpt MANE COMPLETE by bigponymac
This is a HUGE milestone in the construction of this sculpture. Why? The mane was the very last major building step. And because of this I didn't size down the pictures that much in case you wanted a closer look.

From here on out I just have little things like the horn, the tiara, and final detailing, smoothing and corrections. I estimate one more week (I have 4 day weeks btw) if I can manage to work the majority of the day. I estimate no more than two weeks on a normal schedule. Cross your fingers, hope, and pray nothing cracks during this time.

I'll make two maybe three more sculpture posts before it's fired. One when I get the horn and tiara on, one when I'm done detailing, and one when it's sitting in the kiln before the fire.

Guys. I'm almost freaking finished!

Going to do that in the process of doing all the other details. I had her mouth carved out initially but I didn't like it so I covered it up. I plan on doing that the next time I go in.

Looking at the markerboard I bet the students present were like holy shit that sculpture.....

I take it you're going to cut out Luna's eye... don't forget the iris! Such a lovely shade of green and blue
