Thought I'd post a shot of my new sculpt. I will get a newer shot up this week. After some feedback from Bill Stout, I am changing the very heavy spine texture, and taking the heavier thigh scales, which were only the roughest indication, out of there.

I had thought that based on Knight's agathaumus that heavier textures might be an acceptable interpretation. However, I am going more with the heavy wrinkled skin with some scales.

Best,

Rick

Well, I actually only had a couple tools with me when I did this, and no rakes. I just used a bit of plastic wrap to soften the indenting as I tried to cut in main wrinkles, then added the lighter wrinkles that break across the main pattern. I also used a rubber tool to just edge in a bit for some smaller indents or pushing some shapes a little more. Then I went back and varied the depth a little based on what I thought seemed natural. After that added some additional skinfolds where the leg joins the body. (you will see that when I shoot some more shots when I go back in tomorrow evening.

Here's the updated photos....mainly reworked the heavier scales out of there, and worked a bit to start matching the opposite side. With the term ending, and much grading to do, and a few vacation days, I may not get back to working on this right away. But I plan to finish it and perhaps sells casts of it.

You mean it is'nt finished yet?It looks fantastic as is!I am ashamed of my sculpting skills in comparission.I need to play with clay more.

......well here's the other side....

Rick,is this a project for yourself,a client or are you sculpting this to make resin casts and a kit from?Just curious.

It's just for me.....I was demonstrating how to make a maquette for an animal anatomy class.....and I would like to make some casts and hopefully sell them.....

I think dino fans would definately "buy".What's the scale/how big is it if you don't mind me asking?It reminds me of a Haryhausen dinosaur from....1 Million years B.C.

that texture looks awesome 

Thanks. He's about 11" long.

A proper Monoclonius. Everyone gets better results with Sculpy than I do.  Very cool!

I have sculpted a characters body using super sculpey with a couple areas that ended up being half an inch thick. I still need to bake it and I was wondering how do you know when the super ssculpey has been baking long enough? Sorry, I am pretty new at this and have sculpted a few characters, but have not baked them yet.

Hi John- Thanks!  and I've seen your sculpts, so I have no idea what you mean...

Corey- Well, I do about an hour at 100 degrees if memory serves me correctly. It will always feel a bit soft while it is warm, so you have to let it cool to see how hard it really is.
