New idea- Pixie Children

I've been mulling over the idea of a less realistic human type critter for a while and I feel like I need to do something a bit different to get all of my sillyness out. So I've decided to make some pixie children.

The eyes are all done and I've made the armatures, they aren't as silly as I had thought they might be but it will be interesting to see what happens. I haven't painstakingly sketched up poses and faces like I'd ordinarily do and am going to make them semi-posable anyway, so I can change them later if I feel the urge.

I've begun sculpting a head but it needs some more work... updates soon (with WIP pictures hopeflly!)

Judith and Holofernes all Finished!

Here she is! I was going to dress her more but decided that she is on the run and didn't have time to put much on before rushing off.

Judith and Holofernes WIP

I've been working on Judith again today. In fact, I HAD finished sculpting her quite early but then when she was baked, her arm was singed so I had to resculpt it.

I originally thought it was a spike in the temperature of the oven but I'd never had a problem before. Upon second baking I encountered some darkening of some areas and realised it could have been because I added some Mold Maker to my mix to help with conditioning and flexibility of the clay as it has been sitting for a few months and had dried out a little. Luckily I will be applying some dark skin tone washes. Some parts darkened in the oven on the second bake but luckily look quite natural.
