Sculpting Begins Armor - Tutorial


I put something together that may help those that are looking for some basic guidance in sculpting. You have to do the work and develop the skills and finesse to make whatever you are working on really nice and something you would want when it is finished and know one can give that to you you must accomplish it on your own but here are the basic steps in sculpting something from start to finish.

It can be found on my site [sign in to see URL] or go directly here. I also redid the store finally so it is organized and easy to compile a suit from generic pieces.

Paul,

Good [sign in to see URL] last couple of pics really show just how much work goes into refineing something.

That is an amazing level of detail in your piece. The finished suit kind of reminds me a little of The Green Goblins armour from Spider-Man combined with some elements of the Begins design.

Hee hee. "Get her." That was your whole plan. I like it; it was scientific.

I agree with Luke. Amazing work Paul.

Just a question. If your pectorial area is a little high on your chest, can your suit be modified to have the pecs a little high in the chest area?

Thanks gang.

I simply cut the neck line lower and hoist it up for shorter people. Also the belt area can have inches taken out under the belt to bring the legs and knee caps up.

Re: My Batman Begins Sculpting Tutorial.


how would you mold it so that it would wrap around the shoulders and partially around the hips, thighs, and biceps?

Any clues will be appreciative.

Re: My Batman Begins Sculpting Tutorial.


:lol

Paul,

Your tutorial is a wonderful thing, but to be honest (for people like me anyway), putting it as simply as you've done, is almost like saying...

Okay...
           Step 1. Get a lot of rock
           Step 2. Start piling it up to the rough outline
           Step 3. Build Rome.

 :rollin It's easier said than done, when it comes to sculpting. I can build anything out of wood. Flat, curved, radiuses, elliptical, etc. But for some reason, clay turns to sh*t when I come near it.

That's why there's people like you, so your talent can be put to excellent use! :)

You're one of the best... That's for sure! :up

Re: My Batman Begins Sculpting Tutorial.


Echo Six. Good point. The rest can not be told. It must be learned like playing the piano. You can be told how but you must learn and practice. That is the development of your artistic skill and takes time and must be developed in turn by each and every individual willing to walk down that path. I only show how a certain thing is done because people have expressed curiosity and some can use it as is, very true. To do it well requires more but that more you can provide. There are no secrets there just hard work and desire to move forth in the world of art and creation. Do not turn away from clay when it doesn't turn out like you wish. Keep at it and if you want it will happen. As a man thinketh so he is.

Paul
