Megaman X figure -WIP- by Halcreix

/ / ©2013-2015 Halcreix
I've been sculpting this Megaman X figure for 3 weeks or so =) It's entirely made of DAS modelling clay (it has no "skeleton", but I've put a few small wires on "strategic" places for support, like inside both legs and the neck), except for the "light" on its forehead, which is made of [SECRET MATERIAL].

I'm still working on it, though it's almost finished by now =) Sorry about the poor image quality, I took the pic at night. Of course, the final version will feature way better pics :XD:

EDIT: Added a better pic =)

Material secreto... más bien sería una afortunada casualidad de la mano con no haber limpiado del todo bien un recipiente, pero de última luce genial y es un detallazo así que para qué quejarse? XD Como te he ido diciendo a lo largo de los dias, esto tiene tremenda pinta, y ya quiero ver el trabajo de pintura dado que manejando cosas "metálicas" como la keyblade y el rifle siempre te has lucido. La pose, como tambien ya te dije, me gusta muchísimo y pega bien con como es X en esta clase de situaciones, creo que darle una expresión al rostro acorde a eso será otro de los cuellos de botella del trabajo y la frutilla de la torta :3 Que andes bien, amigo :3

Jajaja! Así es amiga, pero no arruines la sorpresa :XD: ;P

Ya le falta poco, y tienes razón, lo que falta es lo más crítico (y que en varias ocasiones me ha fallado un poco), pero confío en mi experiencia y haré lo posible porque el resultado final esté acorde al trabajo de modelado. Saludos!!! :meow:

Oh yeah, I can see this coming :DD The sculpt looks perfect! Tho DAS clay tends to break for me withouth a supporting skeleton, what magic do you have instored? :P

Well, it's really important to let the clay dry completely before detailing, the "secret" for working with this material is patience... a lot of patience: Every shape must be modeled and detailed with care, first with the fingers and some water and later with small knives and soft sandpaper once it's dry (I'll post later some "step-by-step" pics of the making of this figure) =)

Also I've noticed something really important: stored (or "old") DAS clay isn't good for such figures, I believe it's because its "cohesion properties" get weaker as the clay gets exposed to the environment, therefore it's more breakable -even if you moistened it before applying it somewhere-. I recommend storing the clay within 2 or 3 plastic bags once its package has been opened (do not take the clay outside its original package, ever)

Galvanized wire is also not good for making skeletons for figures made with this material since it repels water (that's why my Meta Ridley figure got broken in its "joints"), it only works really good with other materials, such as plasticine =)
