Cornelius Clay by Altalamatox Cornelius Clay by Altalamatox
In the interest of finding some hobby that doesn't further involve ruining my wrists, I've brought a big wad of clay back to school for to craft things of the three-dimensional kind. I made dorky things out of clay all the time as a kid, it's been years since I've tried anything.

So this was me sticking a toe back in the water. I think he came out alright, saving that his eyes are too far spaced and it makes him look spaced from the front. Wish I had some kind of real thick glaze to smooth out his skin and give him something like the thick, translucent outer skin he's supposed to have as a character. And next time I do eyes I'm going to bake them separately then gouge them into the sockets of the unbaked model so they actually look implanted in the skull. That's what I did with the fins, baked them separately and stabbed them into his back. I give it six months before I bust one of them off.

There you go, a tiny Cornelius bust thingy! I wish he really was this size, he would be my shoulder glatni and we would go all places. c:

He would be awesome at about a foot long and shoulder-riding.

I'm sure that will come in ridiculously handy when drawing his head from funny angles.
Welp. That seals it. I'm making one of Sansi's head.

Awesome stuff. He's so shiny. :3

He's adorable! Perhaps you could try layering him with a clear gesso or gloss medium?

For eyes, if you're going to paint the sculpture after it's baked, you can find metal beads or bee-bees to put in the unbaked head, and no one will know they're not clay.

Oooh, yes, I forgot all about beads! And if I could get some white ones I wouldn't even have to make them all fugly with paint. Thanks for the suggestion!
