Time lapse videos are so much fun to make and also to watch and for artists it is a really good way of documenting the whole process of creating an artwork.
In this video I am making a 3D model of Faceless Void from Dota2 in polymer clay. Now working in polymer clay could be very tricky, it’s hard to shape and unforgiving, unlike any other sculpting clay, it’s sticky and gives you a hard time in modeling. In order to avoid any such troubles you should always use good clay brands and understand the nature of your clay, you need to soften it well before starting your project and be very attentive while working in polymer clay. The best thing about polymer clay is that it can be baked, so in order to preserve your final piece you can easily bake it on a particular temperature and finish it off later with either paint or any other material you like.
For this sculpture I made an armature first using wires and then to support the armature and give it a fuller look I wrapped aluminum foil around it. Making a base out of aluminum foil gives strength to your sculpture and also saves on clay. I than applied clay over the armature and using modeling tools I gave details to the sculpture, after the sculpture looked satisfying I baked it at about 275°F, for 20-30 minutes, the baking time and temperature depends on the size and thickness of the sculpture in case you’re not sure if your sculpture is fully baked or not you must observe the change in its color, polymer clay usually fades after its heated.
To give the sculpture a realistic look I painted it using acrylic paints and attached it to a base with the help of super epoxy glue.
So here we are Faceless Void from Dota2. Watch the video on my YouTube channel ,subscribe and leave your feedback.
