My Clay Baneling Model - WIP

General Discussion
Post Limit:
Hey everyone,

I recently decided to get some modelling clay to try out, as I've never really worked with it before and wanted to expand my skills, as I mainly draw. I ended up choosing a baneling as my first project as they're relatively round and simple!

I figured I'd upload some pictures of my work so far:

Early stages:

Getting the 'pieces' sorted:

Finished the modelling, waiting to dry:

The painting begins:

I'm pretty happy with how he's turned out so far, it was definitely more challenging than I thought it would be, but that's okay! I'm now waiting for it to dry, which might take a little while as I'm in Aus, and the flooding weather isn't ideal!

I'll keep you guys posted on how the project turns out :)

I do. :) It wasn't bad though. It is comparable to this.
Looking real good, hope it turns out ok in the end.
This is looking great! I'm looking forward to seeing the finished product. :)
Would any-one from the Blizzard staff or this thread mind if I made a SC related drawing and post it?, I'm a graphic artist too! 8P

I wish other people would post some of there stuff too!

Thanks guys! :) I actually used to collect tabletop miniatures, and have painted a few armies, so I feel fairly confident when it comes to painting him! :P

Love the support, I'll have to do some more sc2 related art for you guys after I finish the baneling!

Fricken what colours are you gunna paint it? Just regular baneling stuff or no??

Amazing especially with your first time with clay. ever think about selling these infested terren statues sell for 500$ a pop
I involuntarily blurted "holy crap" when I brought up the third image. It amazes me how you and other talented artists can go from picture 2 to picture 3. I'll stick to music, it makes sense to me. :P
