SO what's going on everybody? This is my first tutorial, so I'd love feedback on it!
I've seen several tutorials here on dA for creating armatures w/ bases, but none of them show how I make an armature. Hopefully I won't lead anybody astray with this; all this information accurately captures how I make my armatures.
This tutorial is specifically for creating POLYMER clay armatures. Earth/stone clays and porcelain are much heavier, and require a different armature construction. Only refer to this tutorial if you plan on making polymer, plasticine, plastalina, modeling clay, or air dry paper clays. Otherwise, the armature will probably break from using heavier clays on it.
In this tutorial, I'm preparing to sculpt a Superman figurine, and as a result the armature is very basic. I would advocate mastery of these basic techniques before experimentation with complex armature forms.
If you have any questions, feel free to comment or note me!!
