The final project for my sculpture class last semester was to design our own unique creature - we had to start with concept sketches and take it all the way to a finished piece including an environment (I didn't do an environment yet though, as I'm debating repainting the sclupture).  My creature is an alien, and her name is Lucy.  She's made of Super Sculpey over a wire armature, and painted with acrylics.





Here are some of the design sketches:

I was planning on putting Lucy in armor, but I once I had the form filled out I liked the fleshy look of her.  I am thinking about making detachable armor pieces that could be put on and taken off, but I haven't really figured out the best way to do it yet.

Some in process pics:




I've never used Super Sculpey before, and I had a hell of a time making it really smooth.  In the end I just baked it and sanded it down after it was hardened.

I used an airbrush for the base coat, to get a really smooth transition in color.


And more pics of the finished product:






And my favorite part, 'cause I'm a perv - she has a fat little blue vulva.  ^_^


Like I said above, I'm not sure I'm entirely happy with the paint job and I'm thinking about re-doing it.  I think she needs more visual interest, more contrast; maybe instead of purple and blue, she should be blue and orange or something.  And maybe her belly and the inside of the neck should be a lighter color.  What do you think?

for a first time working with sculpey this is awesome! I really like it (alien obsessed here)

I like the paint work a lot actually, if you want to give her more contrast I would put more bright blue like in her paws in some spots over the body. Lighter colour in the belly would work as well  Cheesy have you thought about painting her eyes in a bright colour? maybe it would help  Smiley

but as I said I love it! hitting this rocks!

This is great! I'd love to see her environment. I like the coloring as it is, but I suppose you could add maybe a little bit of orange coloration? It looks great, whatever you decide on doing.  Smiley
