Hamlet the nidorino sculpture by Iron-Zing Hamlet the nidorino sculpture by Iron-Zing
**Want a custom sculpture? See my commission info here- [link] **

;D More Black Tourney prizes! FINALLY! I was able to make a bunch of sculptures over winter break, and this guy was one of them!
He's Hamlet the lazy Nidorino from Black Tourney winner :iconedface: 's comic.

Edface wanted Hamlet to be sleeping in his figure, but his pose was very difficult to get right, I actually redid it 2 times. I originally tried to have him laying flat on his stomach with his back legs stretched out behind him, but it looked really weird, so I redid it and had him laying with his legs to the side, like dogs do.

I'm personally very happy with the way the face and paws came out. I discovered a new way of doing paws thanks to a new tool I bought at my college's art store. I think his feet are a big improvement from my past sculptures such as Chain or Fenris. Instead of painting the pawpads on I actually sculpted them this time.

Hamlet was really fun to make, his anatomy kinda reminds me of a mix between a dog, pig and lizard haha

Oh and Ed, I hope I got his spots right! XD

holy frick you're so damn good at sculpting, and you've only gotten better over time ;-; I kinda want to try it myself, can I ask what materials you'd recommend for a beginner...? or just what you use yourself, whatever works xD

Ohhh thanks Kenzi! >w<

I think so too! Every time I do a sculpture I feel like I learn something new~

Super Sculpty is very easy to work with. Make sure you make a skeleton of foil first, to make the figure more steady, and then cover it with clay. When I do my details I use my fingers or a small tool such as a toothpick.
I recently got some dentist tool looking things, but most of the time I just use my fingers.
