I think it's normal that it doesn't look perfect on the first try xD But sometimes those little flaws are what makes something unique. I've actually been wanting to try making a little Bulbasaur myself as a gift so once I actually decide to do it I might ask you for help if I need to :laff:
I’m no expert but I’d gladly help you out. I say use polymer clay if you can. Or high quality air or oven dry clay if you want to paint it afterwards. Otherwise, this is the video that I used for my guide. Even though I stopped following it partway through and improvised with the sculpting tools that I have on hand and glass from a picture frame as my work surface. ^_^

I was considering FIMO but it's quite expensive so I think polymer clay would probably be a good alternative (it even shows up when I search FIMO so I guess they're similar things). I actually looked on amazon just now and there's polymer clay sets that include some beginner's tools so when I'm up for trying it out I'd definitely get something like that :D Also thanks for the video :luvu:

I’m pretty sure FIMO is a type of polymer clay? So it’s just a matter of what brand that you get? I almost bought some when it was half off recently but I didn’t. I got the super cheap stuff. *shrug* alas, I need to figure out if it’s going to harden or not though. It didn’t come with instructions at all. I might need to bake it. I’ll see how it’s doing tomorrow. I got my tools on wish because I wanted to use them on my thermoplastic and EVA foam. But since they’re actually clay tools, it’s perfect.

You’re welcome for the video. There’s plenty on YouTube probably? But a lot are speed videos, not the slower tutorials. Then again, you can pause them or whatever. It just depends on how much instruction you need.

thanks!! Yeah I go for super soft yarns for the amigurumi. That’s a velvet one. Or those are colors of a velvet one. It’s a bit tiny for hugging but you could hold it in your palm and snuggle it that way! ^_^

Yeah that's possible xD I didn't find anything in the description so I didn't want to make assumptions.

Yeah I'll probably look around some more. That video is very fast for me. I know I can pause it but I probably need something with more explanations because I'm a noob :ohno:

I looked it up. It comes in air dry or oven hardening types. It’s actually what I have in the air dry variety in white. So the regular modeling clay is oven hardening. I will need to put little bulby in the oven to set it. That’s fine.

I’m very much a noob. I’ve made one thing before (outside of art class in grade school), a fertility goddess modeled after my own body. So I watched the video a few times through without clay and tried to follow along pausing as I went then gave up and did my own thing basically, going off of pictures. Then again, I’ve watched an actual potter at work live, so that helps lol. And I used to play with play dough a TON—like I made super intricate things—full on plates of spaghetti and meatballs with silverware and decorated wine bottles, goblets, etc. I guess it carries over? You could always practice with play dough lol. It’s much cheaper.

And... here’s the second idea for a piece that I had for art when I went digital. This is the first one I started on my pen display. I totally forgot about it but I remembered and now I finished it so... here it goes.

Thanks! No, the full resolution version was originally to be a submission for publication in an electronic BLZine. I don’t know if it’s too late or not but I sent it over. If it (and the one I already sent in) get published, I’ll post in the advertising thread about the final product. It’s a PG-13 product. But I do plan on printing it if my partner likes it and doing a female version of them at some point. Or some other conversion of one of their photos.
