I've spent the last few months getting things together to bring this first polymer clay art doll tutorial (as well as many others). In this first video, I'm making a dragon head sculpt with Sculpey and in future videos I'll show you more of my process for making poseable art dolls. The head is sculpted with a few stainless steel clay sculpting tools and, more often then you would think, is shaped by my fingers. When I'm all done, this dragon artdoll will be for a St. George & the Dragon illustration.

The majority of my future videos will focus on fantasy characters from mythology and folk-lore, I've got some fey characters lurking in my sketchbook waiting to be brought to life. I've thought about doing fan art of characters I love, but I'm still not 100% sure I will- I'd love to make a Daredevil (and a bunch of the other Defenders characters) or The Rhino from Spider-Man (The Rhino's costume is just ridiculous!) or maybe if I do make them, I'll re-imagine them as fitting into more of a fantasy setting. What do you think? I'd also love to make the time to play around with stop-motion animation with my poseable art dolls.
