Big Luna Sculpt Mane Construction 2 by bigponymac Big Luna Sculpt Mane Construction 2 by bigponymac
Continuing the mane. This is the result of a few hours work over the past two days. Here I'm getting the rough shape of Luna's flowing mane. Any smoothing and detailing will come after I establish the shape. I'm hoping I can get close to finishing by the end of the week because I won't be able to work on it next week due to Thanksgiving Break.

I'm also running low on paper clay. That means I'm going to have to make some more. Don't need much, but I'm cutting it close with what I have right now.

And guys feel free to ask me questions if there's something you'd like to know. I love sharing knowledge.

Only a couple, the mane and some of the tail. Everything else is completely hollow save the body and the majority of the neck. They have a single slab of clay acting as a "back bone" running down the middle to give them support. The legs are completely hollow and are supported by the thickness of the clay walls at their bottoms.

It hasn't been fired yet. It's starting to crack because we haven't been able to fire it in almost a year and it's drying out.  I haven't been able to keep it moist because I've been too busy to go to campus and the weight of the piece is putting stress on various points. 

Drying clay + stress = bad news

I use cone 5-10 Orangestone. I can't remember what brand it is.

As for a tutorial, I would have no idea what to do for one. There were so many different techniques involved in making this and the sculpture is almost complete. What kind of tutorial are you looking for?

I might be able to do something. It's pretty simple really. I could try to do a short video either Monday or Tuesday.
