Sculpting time! Here’s the wire armature I’ve made in preparation for sculpting Max. I used his character turnaround to map out how much wire I needed, and how I planned to bulk up the skeleton. I used aluminum wire (useful for its flexibility), aluminum foil, epoxy putty, and some super glue to make the armature. I also used several tools including needle-nose pliers, a wire cutter, a handheld saw (to cut down my piece of plywood for the base), and a drill press (to drill the holes in the base that the wire would fit into).
The next step will be the finished sculpture! See you then!
