So... here're a few more previews. A paleolithic venus, sculpted by me:
And the original reference material:
We've found quite a few of these ancient figurines - for 28mm scale mine is probably way too big - the Willendorf Venus that I copied my sculpt from is only a few inches high, small enough to fit into a human hand. Sculpting something that tiny is way beyond my ability, so I made one that's big enough to be carried (as an objective counter, maybe...?), but still pretty small. Idol sized - throw me the whip and I'll throw you the Venus.
I'm pretty happy with it - it's not perfect, I wasn't able to shape the breasts quite right, and I think the arms are too thick, but it's still recognizeable as a Venus (I think). I'm very happy with the rough, worn stone-y texture (which I got by carefully dabbing a tiny piece of coarse sandpaper all over the figure before the putty completely cured). I'm not sure when or if I'll release it, but I wanted to show it off.
Here's the "Mutant Terror Bird" that Tyson is working on, it's still a work in progress:
And another little thing that Tyson's just getting started with:
