With the beginnings of a plan in mind, I've begun on this little raccoon. The size will be important - I'd like it to be about 9" tall. So I began by sketching the outline in the size and shape I want, then I used that as a guide when I sculpted the head.
In this photo, I've just begun painting the head. It's a bit difficult because I sculpted it last night and working with the dark clay in the low evening light, I didn't get the surface as smooth as I would have liked once I began painting. With all the contours, sanding would be close to impossible. So on with the painting anyway! And there's a lot of painting to go - this is just the first layer.
