Thanks all, I'm glad you like him! The celluclay "dirt" is taking forever to dry, and all my dirt texture is just shrinking into celluclay texture...which is basically the same thing, so no worries there I guess. Painting the first one is going to have to be put off though, due to the slow dry time.

That said, I started on the second ground breaker of the three this afternoon. I used the second foam ball for the skull from the initial pics in this post. This one I am trying to make look a little more menacingólearned some lessons from the first one, so far so good.

I guess I'll just keep the progress of all three in this thread, so without further ado, on to Round Two!

Yeah! Number 2 is beginning! (Love Sabertooth #1) I guess #2 is the rough & tough big brother, not taking any lip from anyone. He will probably chew you up and spit you out...Figuratively speaking, that is.

I think he looks happy. JK, he does look more menacing.

Lol, thanks guys. This second ground breaker has certainly got a different vibe than the first in the post!

I don't know if it is the weather—my "dirt" on GB number one is still pretty damp—or if it was the paper clay I bought this time around—kinda dry—but I had a ton of cracking and separation on this version. All the grooved tooth holders split apart and the cheeks and the forehead cracked as well. All was fixed by making a little slip out of paper clay and water and smoothing it all back together. Either way, it will be covered in mache by tomorrow!

All fixed up and ready for sanding!

Not much of an update, but the weather has kept me from work on this as it has stayed wet for so long. Anyway, here is a before and after of the head all sanded up and ready for mache this evening. The angle of the second photo is a bit more head-on, but it retained most of the look from the rough version, maybe a touch less menacing, but still more so than my first ground breaker in the thread. Again, as you can see, the paper-clay really takes sanding well. You can do a lot of manipulation at this stage.
