Sculpting with Play-Doh

Not too long ago, I came into possession of a large batch of homemade Play-Doh. Having some very minor sculpting experience, I decided to try and make something, even though Play-Doh is far from ideal as far as materials go. However, I’m rather pleased with how it turned out:

Here Be Dragons!

The model is of a wyvern/dragon as I imagine them. This one is an infant, because the Play-Doh wasn’t strong enough to support the proportions of an adult. Image has been spruced up in Photoshop.

Bambi eyes, eat your heart out.

Afterward I put some large glass spheres in for eyes. I really liked this addition, as they made it look much more like an infant.

The following are Photoshopped images just for fun:

Emerald City

Alternate coloring. He looks good in green, eh? Almost like something you could mount on your wall. Almost lifelike.

Born of Fire

In this picture, I took advantage of the lighting to make things a little epic. Flames are just fun-time for this little guy. Roughly wallpaper-sized if you fancy it.
