Detailing a clay sculpture
Get a feel for how to detail a clay cartoon character sculpture in this free video tutorial sample from CG Cookie!
Our friends at CG Cookie have been kind enough to send us a couple of sample videos from one of their clay sculpting video tutorial series. Here we see how CG Cookie's Lisa Schindler sculpts the Desert Wrangler, a character created by the CG Cookie team. Lisa takes on the challenge of transforming the Wrangler into a clay sculpture which is a multiple stage process. The two final parts of the series shared here revolve around detailing the sculpture to give the Wrangler depth and a realistic appearance while maintaining his cartoon-like character.
If you're new to clay sculpting you'll find out more about what's entailed and learn a few cool tips you can use if you give it a go yourself. We particularly liked how the wooden effect was created for the crate and how the texture of the sand was built up.
Access to the full streaming course "Making of the Desert Wrangler" is included in CG Cookie's SculptBox together with additional training and all the hand-picked tools and material you need to get started with clay sculpting right away.
