Sculpting and making toys is something that I've always enjoyed doing, but do not consider as one of my strong suits. I have been wanting to sculpt this caricature of myself for a while and do resin castings of it.
Finally last night, I got tired of wishing and decided to take action instead and began sculpting for the first time in a long while. The unfortunate part of the process last night was not being able to find my old sculpting tools. I stored them away somewhere and have yet to find them. Instead I used some Niji wood carving tools and the handle of a tiny paint brush.
So far he is able to stand on his own, but I haven't even added in his cowlick hair. I'm definitely worried about the overall balance of the figure and have a lot of room to fail still, but it should be a fun process none the less. Wish me luck!
I'll post more images as this project moves forward. Be sure to follow my instagram @johnengcheng if you want to see more process photos not only of this project, but other ones as well.
