If you missed my earlier blog post this is the armature I made for the sculpture.
I like to wrap the armature with floral wire to help the clay stay in place.Once the armature was completed I began adding Apoxie sculpt clay.
Here the final pose is taking shape. The legs are done but I can still reposition the arms and head if I choose.
Adding some detail to the face with a needle tool.
Adding the bat to the figure and sculpting the sleeve.
The finished sculpture and base outside being primed.
Beginning painting the face.
Giving the figure a wash to accent the details.
Putting the finishing touches to the gift box my bad Santa will be holding. I named this guy Clubba because, well, what do you name a character holding a Louisville slugger?
