This is my submission for a local charity auction for youth depression and anxiety.

I wish I could have done a better job on him, but I'm swamped at the moment.

I hope you like him :)

EDIT: Sold for $200 at a charity auction for youth depression and suicide.

Thank you all very VERY much for all the wonderful feedback :)

I'm sorry about my absence, but I've been quite busy and DeviantArt can be a little daunting for me at times.

I'll try to be on more often from now on :)

200? Wow that is a lot, how big is it? I can't tell if it is small or tall from the photos

It was awhile ago now, but I think it was around 4 inches tall.

Thank you :) It was a bit disappointing. I have sold things privately for much more, but like I said, it was a local auction so it may have been a bit unrealistic of me to expect more.

Thank you, I used Sculpey Firm clay, I use everything and anything as tools, but mainly a scalpel, and some other tools I've baked out of clay. I've been sculpting for around 15 years :)

oh my! 15 years!!! no wonder this looks so great! :D i've just started and i'm having problems with understanding what tools i need and how much money i should spend on them ><
how do you polish your figurines?:)

:iconmorffincreations:
MorffinCreations Featured By Owner Apr 2, 2014  Professional Traditional Artist
Thank you :)

Sorry about the long wait, I haven't been on DA for awhile :S

I polish my characters before baking with clay softener and a smooth flat brush, or (if it need a drastic change or melting) I use mineral turpentine and a brush. Once they are baked I use a rough cloth and just massage the flat areas to smooth them out.

Best of luck with it all :)

amazing sculpt :D I see that you do a bit of 3d too, have you ever tried Zbrush ? :) its a 3d sculpting program, I think you'd really like it :D I started out in stop motion and 2d animation before 3d, and zbrush was really amazing for me :happybounce: I think you should try it out , you'd be really good at it I think :D

Thanks :) I've had a quick go a Zbrush and found the interface a bit difficult, although I'd love to give it another go when I've got the time :)

yeah I definitely think you should try it again :D it's pretty quick to learn :D just need to think of it like it's just clay, and you can use all the same sculpting techniques :D
