Update: Aug. 19, 2009

I've been working on the odd figure here and there. It's been a busy week at work, so nothing has been finished just yet.
I have a week of furlough coming up in September, so I'm trying to think of a small project to undertake. One possibility: I've done a dead mammoth using Sculpey, so I'm thinking of trying a live mammoth. It would be a challenge; I know I can get the anatomy down ok, but I have to get the movement correct as well. I also would cook it in layers, mostly so I can sculpt the fur on a solid model without risk of leaving unwanted fingerprints.
Otherwise, I may just purchase a couple figures to paint for the week. I DO have other stuff planned for the week. Maybe a trip, possibly some painting in the wild (painting some landscape in watercolor.)
In the meantime, I'll try to get a couple figures painted and posted. Don't forget to check out my gallery on Flickr.


  1. Loved your original butchered mammoth, inspired me to get some air drying clay.

    How about a mammoth in a pit trap, only half the sculpting?

    All the best Airhead

  2. ooo, great idea, especially for playing Tusk. Along the same lines, I think a mammoth struggling in a tar pit would be fun (and easy) too, if only as a mini diorama.
