View Full Version : 3d gorilla

Just wanted some input on this clay gorilla I'm almost finished with.

I had an internal server error on my first try so if this comes up twice on the board, that is why.

wow...I am not a sculptor, but always wanted to try it. This is so real looking, just great! I understand there are different types of clay etc. for sculpting...what do you use?

nice job. I like it .\ I think the shoulders and chest may look too human. could be wrong but somehow it doesn't look quite right to me in those areas. Good job though.

It looks good to me but it took me a minute to realize that it is his right shoulder under his turned head. Maybe that's what through Figgby off. Is he rising out of the swamp ? Can you show it from a different angle ?

Thank you all for your comments, the clay is a waterbase low fire clay and I also do figures and portraits.
Figby, my son told me the same thing about looking too human around the shoulders. I guess I'll beef him up in that area.
He's not coming out of a swamp, unless you want him to be, I just wanted to stop at that level. It's sitting on black plastic which gives that swamp look.

Frank..great job..nice to see some 3D work posted here! The figure is very expressive and I like the head turned..as if he just heard a jungle noise and is at attention. I would love to work more in clay and would like to know more about your materials..by low-fire...do you still have to have a kiln..or is this one you can put in the kitchen oven? Perhaps you can post one of your portrait pieces..great for all of us to see!
