philter4: Thanks.

Helen: Thanks, this model is actually based on the matriarch of the elephant herd at my local zoo. I studied this individual a lot while making this model.

HK:Glad to help out, the super sculpey clay can be found in most any art store. I find the grey version is easier to work with because you can see your shadows and details more easily since its a neutral tone. Also, great bongo from the other post you sculpted.

Ana: Thanks a lot, your sculptures are really nice as well. I appreciate how you make them so delicate and accurate.

Kiryuha : Thanks, I sculpt on occasion but not with any regularity.

Have you finished sculpting and painting your Asian elephant cow, elephas_maximus? I'd love to see a picture of your finished model. I'm about the start sculpting my own and I'm going to use your roughed out model for inspiration.

That Asian model was actually from a few years back and has since been reconstructed into an African elephant (though its still not done yet either).
I wasn't liking where the Asian sculpting was going so I just decided to reuse the clay/armature and start again.

HKHollinstone: I've put some more pictures of the Asian model in earlier stages that might be helpful to you.
