The Astro-Sloth sculpture was great fun, if you like sculpting cloth wrinkles which I do.  Now that I'm putting together this post I realized that I did not do much documentation I wish I had!  Promise I will do a wrinkle sculpting how to in the next month.  The pic above was sculpting the back detail, the problem being how to get to the underneath as well as the back with out ruining the front.  Foam padding is a great thing to lay the sculpt on, I was using a fluffy towel, fluffy-ish anyway.

The head was sculpted separately after I baked the body.  Sometimes it's freeing to do parts individually.  The ring around his neck is a 2" diameter  PVC pipe breaking up the flow of the sculpt by having sharp machined piece to contrast the soft wrinkles and fur texture.

People seem to be liking the Astro-Sloth maybe there is a vinyl toy of this guy in the future.
