    It's your sculpture Pokrad, and if you want her to slim down, slim her down. But looking at the nude version of this babe, she is just fine the way she is...she looks like a real woman... real and hot. She's a pit babe, and healthy and strong....not a 100 lb. A. Jolie.
    Looks great to me just the way she is....

    Actually, I think I found the problem, I put down the side pic of sculpt on armature map. Not the whole rib cage is too big, but just the part below the breasts.
    That was reason why the rib cage looks too big, and breast to "sit" somewhat unnatural. I trimmed down that part and make side line of the abdomen somewhat softer-it looks much better to me now ;)
    Now, the part that is still poking my eyes is 3/4 front view of the hips - I'll find a way to fix that too - I hope...

    Thx guys for heads up !!!

    I should probably start it over with "grey tinted" sculpey, I cant see anything while sculpting :(

    Looking good, maybe a bit stern for a race queen though?

    I'm trying to get a smile, but I swear that clay is alive and keeps running away from my tools - one less steady move and I'm back 3 hours of work :):)
    Man, how the hell 1/32 guys do it ? Do you have some magic pill that makes your hands 32 times smaller ???

    I think you are very brave and do very well. The female form is not the easiest at all.

    And I share your view of pink Sculpey. Hard to see anything. I went over to "Firm grey" or would mix FIMO classic into the Sculpey to get a opaque surface. But my sculpts still suck!

    Super Sculpey is definitely more akin to working in med soft wax than a clay or putty.

    My issue with it is that no matter how one bakes it, it just isn't as durable and crack resistant over an armature as other sculpting mediums, at least not for me.

    All of the larger sculpts that I have done with it have shown some sign or another of hairline cracking after a few years, and believe me I've tried every possible combination of curing parameters.

    I prefer A&B Epoxy putty personally, especially for larger scales .

    Now that's a scary thought! LOL

    Hi, thank you all for heads up ;)
    I'm wondering for some time now, how it would be to use Sculpey just for "sketching", cast it in wax, and then continue with finer details-If I get a good wax, I'll give it a try.
    @Gordy - not so scary as that ugly head staring at me from the tip of the toothpick-refusing to get any finer form ;)


    Edit: forced myself to try to refine it further, hmm, not gonna throw it away yet...

    great Darko the face is getting alive, I would recomend to reduce the top part of the ear, looking very good mate!

    Yes, I need to refine ears more...
    Also still have some trouble with symmetry of the eyes.
    Thanks mate for cheering me up ;)

    Yeah, I know, it's not that small, but it's accomplishment for me:

    Well, thumb looks awkward here as "standalone", but when the hand is put on the hip with thumb up, and other fingers sort of follow the curve of the hip, it looks more natural. However thumb is still slightly wrong form I think...

    Looks like another challenging project Darko, but your progress is impressive.

    Following closely...

    Cheers,
