These are the progress pictures I shared of Inkling while I was working on her. From start to finish, she took around 6 months. A lot of people are faster than I am, but I work full time and I'm not a very natural sculptor. I could only spend a little bit of time on her daily, and there were some weeks where I didn't work on her at all.
I first sculpted her out of Apoxie Sculpt, which is a two part epoxy clay that cures to rock-hard. Even so, the thin pieces were too brittle to string. I junk molded her, then cast her pieces in resin. At that point, I could test out her posability. Many things changes, some dramatically, but I think she stayed very true to the original. Finally, I finished and perfected those pieces and created a new set of molds.
These pictures are in chronological order.
