An attempt at digital sculpting

I got the free 3D modelling/sculpting program Sculptris aaaages ago, but only dabbled, making a couple of really basic models out of boredom.

Anyway, since then I've been admiring the outstanding digital work of several equine sculptors in the model horse hobby and thought I'd give it another go. XD
I've no idea what breed it's going to end up as but as long as it looks like a fairly decent equid I think I'll be happy, haha!

It started off looking like this... XD (yay, giraffe pone!)


...after maybe an hour or two. (I can't remember exactly when I started it today so that may be way off, lol.)

Aaaaand, right now.

I'm putting off dealing with the lower legs and feet as they're really not my strong suit, haha.

So yeah, still very early days but I'm pretty chuffed so far!


  1. Wow! Looks very good so far!

  2. What a TALENT! You really know what your doing, my efforts would begin and end with the "giraffe"
    Beautiful work Christine! :D


    1. Ha, I'm really just making it up as I go along! XD

  3. oh my god, I'm so impressed :D I have tried a 3D programme to see how it works and while I'm very handy working GIMP, 3D is so different.... I used a youtube instruction to make a simple object to get the feel of it, but boy is that hard.. It will take ages to understand how to design things. But you definitally get it and did an amazing job, it looks stunning!

    1. I think a lot of programs are needlessly complicated with too many options and settings but this one is VERY intuitive so I'd really recommend it if you ever fancy giving it another go!
      I haven't actually done any more work on it since I posted this so perhaps this is a good time!
