1st Attempt: head fell off, the sculpey was too far from the armature (had to strip it down and start back from the armature).
2nd Attempt: I did the full sculpt in a generic forward looking pose (kinda what you have a t-pose in 3d i guess), no expression on the face, no Contrapposto, no heart - it was technically sound, but had no heart - and i quickly learnt you cant just repose a real sculpture, i had to resculpt quite abit after bending into a pose.
3rd Attempt: Learnt my lessons well and finally hit a pose i liked and did some self-reference in the mirror to get a nice expression out and finally got it painted up - much thanks to my dog for providing the nose and eye references. Then i learnt it also takes quite a bit to light it... (thank god for my macro lens and experience photographing small stuff). And so heres the result
