This is great stuff, keep it up !
I don't like the use of twisted wire for the dragon's wingbones, doesn't fit imo - mantis and Velociraptor are superb.
Thanks and agreed. I think it looks out of place too. I did it to lengthen the wingspan, after I had filled out the body I realized I had missed the mark on the wing length and that was an easy solution. Normally, I wouldn't do that, I'd rather start over but that's why I wanted to do some tests.
Your bug work is great. Must have a lot of patience mate.
Thanks again. Depends who you talk to. I have no patience for some things. I could never be a teacher. I'm a total wreck trying to teach my son anything, I mean, really, I need help. Lucky for him, he's got a good head on his shoulders.
But, oddly, I enjoy the tedious things, like base work in modelling, preparation and finishing in carving and sculpting (I.E. all the sanding and cleaning and polishing), so I can do that stuff forever and a day. Which is where most of this wire stuff falls, wrapping countless wires around other wires, until my fingers fall off.
It's a real problem sometimes, you never notice how much damage you're doing while you're doing it, then you go to drink your coffee or Coke Zero as is more often for me and you yelp in pain and drop it. Spending the next 11 days recovering from the blisters and joint pain before you can have your caffeine pain free again. But we all know what that's like, I'm sure.
The good thing with what I tend to do, it's mostly mindless, once I do all the research, make all the decisions, get to a certain point in the project, I can just go without thought, filling in the space as required. So, spend that time in front of the TV or streaming laptop. Unlike more traditional sculpting that takes far more concentration throughout.
