    Building an armature for the dorsal. Waiting on plaster bandages to reinforce it.

    If any of these don't load please tell me.

    Ha! Yeah. He and his brother are going to need their own credits by the time I get this done.

    Got my head dress done. Someone suggested I go as a mermaid for Halloween and who am I to argue.



    Also, gratuitous cleavage.

    My wig came in!


    I started fiddling with a set of vambraces for Halloween and finally got around to assembling a base for my fluke so I could start sculpting. I've had to start cannibalizing chavant from other projects. Between this, my Ahsoka sculpt, and class projects I'm running out fast.

    Thank you guys for the support and encouragement, it really helps.
    Third pass is over half done, building up thickness, leveling it out, and cleaning up the ridges. I've run out of chavant again so now I have to wait until I can buy some more before I can finish the other half. Hopefully I can start cleaning the edges up and the shape, making sure it's symmetrical soon cause it's a little crooked, before adding in some detail.

    Does anyone know the average recommended thickness for a fluke? I found one for the scales but haven't come across one to go by when sculpting the fluke.

    Iím going to say that in places mine may have gotten 1/2 inch thick on the sculpt, but I am not sure if they are supposed to be that thick because I havenít seen silicone tails up close in person.
