I made these a while back but forgot to post them.

It is very childish but I am a big kid *shrugs*

I used the lego format for this as well as the bearbrick design.

lol The bearbrick shrek was fun to make.  It was hard to get those noodle ears to stay up on the lego shrek.

Me too... especially when it was the cheap sculpey.  I really hated using that cheap stuff... but it is cost effective for background stuff like a dungeon floor or a tree.

Yeah I am not keen on big figures... too much investment... besides I'm no sculptor, it would just be a waste of money (it would turn into a white elephant).

I have thought of making a fake dinosaur bone that I can display in the living room though lol

 LOL - I love shreks noodle ears Smiley so cute

 p.s. If either of you ever want to make a slightly larger character/thing/sculpture -Im not sure what others use but I use alfoil in my polymer sculptures.
 I sculpt the basic shape out of alfoil and then cover it in polymer clay - acts as an armature and also bulks out the clay so I dont have to use as much. Its so easy to work with and you can scrunch it down to wahtever thickness you want. I find it easier to sculpt onto aswell, as it holds its shape better.

anhored - i do use foil inside but even just covering uses way more than little figures.

clay - don't sell yourself short.  your figures show that you have a talent for sculpture.  and imho it is harder to sculpt small.  the dinosaur bone sounds awesome!!!  i have 'fossils' on my to-do list...

Ankhored, I might give that a go since it saves on clay.  That firmer sculpey material is expensive.  I just have to figure out a way to keep from smudging the clay off the armature.

Nouga - haha fake artifacts is cool to hang up around the house.  oh imagine you could make fake roman coins.
