I'm trying to sculpt a Great Knarloc, a riding beast used by the Kroot from Warhammer 40,000. It's basically a big featherless chicken that can kill you. Here's what they look like if you do a fantastic paint job.
These photos show the initial armature I made, and the first few layers of clay. It's pretty ugly right now, but I'm happy with how this one is turning out. I used photo reference (that's right, the hard part is finding a plucked chicken to work with...), but I'm doing a different pose.
