Spicing up the neck

Spicing up the neck

I’m a very dynamic sculptor (I’ve said this before and I am sure I’ll say it again). With my own original art I usually have a basic idea of the sculpture I want to create but once I get started I just kind of make things up as I move along. Personally I view this as a strength and not a weakness because the final design usually ends up better than the original vision.

That being said the new design to the horns has given me an idea on how I can spice up the rest of the sculpture a bit. I’ll start with changes to the neck in this tutorial and will move on from there in the later lessons.

* This sculpture is created with Super Sculpey.

The first step is to take little balls of clay, at various sizes, and press them into the neck.* Ignore the ear for now (I know it looks terrible). I will cover sculpting the ear in the next lesson.
