    Default Tiny Fire Foot Fennec Sculpt

    I recently just got a Fire Foot Fennec animal companion in our DnD campaign for my 6.4 foot tall phalanx soldier fighter due to the choices I made in character. I was looking at sculpting the animal as I can't find ANY model out there I could use. Though I've not sculpted an entire model before, (large or small) and was looking for some advice. Where should I begin? Should I do it in separate pieces or all together because it will be so small?

    For those of you who aren't aware what it is, it's basically a Tiny Fox with big ears... Here is a couple of links to some pics.

    Thanks for any help,
    Fox.

    Hiya, I presume you're at least familiar with Kneadatite (greenstuff) or another epoxy modelling compound? Anyway GS is idea for doing something like this and might be the best choice because it stick together so well and it's good for seeing tiny details.

    I think the best way to approach the sculpt is by making some small ovals of putty that roughly correspond to the head, neck and body (think balloon animal) and then pressing them together gently so they stick. Let that fully cure before sculpting on top of it with a fresh layer of putty. If you want to sculpt a distinct texture for the fur I'd practice first a couple of times on a scrap model or just flat on a piece of plastic card, slotta base or whatever. Fur texture isn't inherently hard but it takes practice to do it neatly and evenly.

    Thank's mate. I use GS regularly, just never went about making a scratch built model before. Thanks for the advice, it makes a lot of sense and give me a starting point. Really helps.
