Model making (robot sculpture)

Here's a quick post showing the making of a small sculpture i made recently of a robot.

I first took the image of the robot drawn by the wonderful concept artist Megan Potter (please see link below for more of her work)

First i outlined the design of the robot on a piece of cut blue foam

I then used thick wire and super sculpy to make the legs and feet
I added more detail to the body using super sculpy and wire, i then hardened it all and painted it black
After this stage i built the arms again using sculpy and wire, i then glued the four arms (two large, two smaller) into place using a glue gun (superglue burns through the foam and makes it unusable)
I then painted the model using a green, silver, white and yellow to make the finished piece

Finished model
