Bronze Kudu sculpture, start to finish

I promised a while ago that when I began my next sculpting project, I'd post my progress. I've just started now and am posting the armature and first application of clay. I'll continue to post periodically as the sculpture develops all the way through to the end product, the bronze. Hope this is interesting to some..

No they didn't. Are you using the "manage attachments" button. That works best for me.

Kudu

Yes! I didn't think they had gone through! That's the armature and first clay; have a long long way to go but this is the beginning..

This is wonderful work Kristikay. I have no idea how you can do something like that. I mean build up a clay statue from a frame like that. It is going to be fun to watch your progress on this.

I think David (Bushcraftonfire) took your photos from your album and loaded them to his post, the ones that you uploaded with your post did not come through.

Maybe we can help you figure out why they didn't load when you tried to post them. Which method did you use -- the picture icon or the 'manage attachments' link?

Reposted kudu

TerryCurley, I think the problem was that my pictures were too large so I had to resize them, make them smaller. I reposted and added the smaller pictures, all looks fine now. Thanks so much for your help! And thanks to everybody who has commented! I havn't worked on the kudu since I did the armature and first clay application. I've been so busy with other things but will continue next week.
