Sculpting the Styracosaurs Body

Once I had the head and legs added to the armature I began to sculpt the dinosaurs body in Aves Apoxie Sculpt clay.

Since the neck and jaw were going to be manipulated for stop motion animation I installed a stop nut in the side of the body. This would enable the Styracosaur to be tightened down onto the set and prevent unwanted jiggling during animation.

When I had finished the sculpting I gave the dinosaur several light coats of grey automobile primer. I then built up the sections of jaw and neck which would be animated with foam rubber.
