I like it personally I think the pinky is more of fire fly's style like he's gonna kick your ass if you say anything.

Might I ask, why do some sculptors leave off one arm, sometimes? This is excellent.

this is amazing, you are the best sculpter i have seen on this site... i have stared at this for a long time and cant find any flaws

how do you get it so smooth and what type of clay do you use?

Thanks for the compliments!

For this piece I used a material called Castilene, which is basically a cross between clay and wax. To smooth it I usually just use sandpaper. It's a wonderful material.

Pinky is like "Oh my, I spilt tea on the ottoman .."
And the rest is just butch awesome. I sincerely hope the new GI Joe can have this much character packed into a cartoon.
