How do you start? What sort of structure to you place under the sculpt? I'm looking to sculpt a Ashley Wood style Tank Girl head for a Cy-Girl body... I have a sketch of what I'm going for and have sculpted before. I always do this a different way though and was wondering if there's a "right" way?

I have Super Sculpy, Apoxie, and beads for eyes. I also have access to dowels, wood, and tools.

My Sketch:


The only pics I could find from the comic online, Tank is the one with blonde hair.

Was done with a tablet, was tryng to capture the look of Ashley Wood's take on the character while still drawing something that will work in 3d. I usually sketch in Photoshop and finish in Illustator but in this case the sketch is all I need.

Man I am so out of practice with the sculpting. I can't even get the shape of the head right... it's really frustrating. It's mostly the eyes giving me hell. Working with the beads is driving me nuts.

They keep floating around inside the head as I push clay around. Maybe I'll sculpt a skull-like shape as a base to stick the eyes in, cure that, and then sculpt over that. I'll keep trying no matter what I do.

I ended up sculpting the skull first, which was a nice exercise. Helped me get back into the groove. I am also contempating leaving the final sculpt rough like the skull is now (and not smoothing it with lighter fluid or something) to better represent Ashley Wood's style. Not sure about that yet though.



I think I need to cut down the cheekbones a bit though. Make them flatter and tighter to the skull. Tank has a round face but not particularly jutting cheekbones.
