Another aspects of sculpting is to do naked skin (sorry Andy, no Lady this time!). In this case here a Dinosaur will fill in as an example. Here I have done a Deinoychus. The idea is from an japanese dino book, where this boy is shown in exactly the same stance, with the same skinny body. I thought of this as really interesting and duplicated it in 120mm. And it needs less shelf place of cause. The main idea here is the skinny, foldy appearence of the figure. The tails is long and very thin, more rat like in comparission, the body with its cloaka thicker, the legs and arms very thin but with most possible skin details and structures.
The whole body is preshaped with aluminium foil, the tail is a wire. The most difficult aspect here is to get the skin details in without having enough masses to work on, especially on the tail. On the body, the most work is done already with brush, sculpting tools I have mentioned earlier, toothpicks and needles. You can carve all this in the yet soft putty without having trouble. The most important aspect is to wait till the magic sculpt starts to harden a bit. If it is still wet, you cannot work as good with it as a bit later, because the surface will get clumpsy and brittle a bit. When it is like chewing gum, you can work without any problems, the details stay the way they should and all will come out as you have planned.
