working on a model of the plasm wraith from pikmin 3
usually to make a more organic shape i use clay but the shape and orientation of this model would make that very difficult as you can see by the form on the right, one of the legs is already gone and there's numerous cracks. i knew this would happen so instead of making the model out of clay i decided to use it as a form, wrapping it in plastic wrap and adding multiple layers of paper and glue with some wire to help it keep its shape. then i cut it off and attached the two halves together and added more layers of paper and glue. the result is a very light, very large, and very odd organic shape that would have been hard to capture using my normal techniques.
now for lots of sanding, filling, and painting
