Hello. I just wanted to say how adorable this sculpture is and how genuinely beautiful it is! I was wondering, when building an armature, what do you do to make it sturdy enough and also how do you keep the armature from poking through the sculpture? I'm new to sculpting so any advice is most welcome! :D

My armatures are generally a little floppier than what I see most sculptors use but it's the way I've been creating my sculptures from the start and am quite comfortable working with it that way at this point.  I also appreciate the flexibility of it as it allows for some last minute pose changes so long as they aren't overly drastic.

The armature in the "pokey" areas of the animal are generally the feet and the head.  The head I wad a piece of aluminum foil around so that generally takes care of that and the paws are always a piece of wire folded over so it is a rounded end.  The pointy end of the tail is rarely an issue for me.  Also, my armature is covered in some layers of aluminum foil twisted around it so that helps the clay hold and not slip around too badly.

Hope that helps!  :)

Hi. Oh it certainly does! Thanks! :) oh also, if you don't mind me asking, do you study anatomy to portray the muscles on the animal subject? If so, I see you create depth and shape to the sculptures; do you have any tips on creating this on a sculpture? 
Thanks. :)

I've not taken any official anatomy classes as of yet but I have been interested in anatomy for many years.  I find that books, internet searches, and even taxidermy are great sources to learn more about the internal workings of living things.
