Here is a project I did last month, I had to create a character and a bust for my sculpting class, My character I based of a digital painting by Marcus Blättermann of Bowser, The alien bust is of my own design.
The clay used is Super Sculpy. I built the armatures myself. For Bowser I used coat hangers to create a wireframe. The Bust I had to get a little more creative; I bought a large lightbulb at Home Depot and used coat hangers to create a base for the lightbulb to sit in. I have even made it possible to connect wires to the lightbulb after baking so that if I want I can turn it on and have the eyes glow.
Super fun project as I enjoy sculpting by hand.
