Hi! So, I've been working away the past week or two on a spirit animal as a Christmas gift for an awesome somebody. Sculpting is super fun because I'm never really sure what the results will be except that I'll probably make a huge mess and end up bleeding at one point or another during the process. A recipe for success!
I started with an aluminum foil and wire base to keep the shape, and then sculpted on top of that. It was hard to make it kind of chubby and cute without being too top heavy, so I ended up playing with the proportions a lot.
The snow leopard slowly gets its spots...
Finished piece to come! Enjoy!
