Riven Sculpture/Figure (LoL) by Sushumo Riven Sculpture/Figure (LoL) by Sushumo
View 2: [link]
Base closeup: [link]

Made with polymer clay (Sculpey!), with wire for her insides/"skeleton" (I don't sculpt over doll bases or anything, though it might be a good way to learn proportions...) and painted with acrylics. The sword was a pain because I couldn't find a saw that wasn't huuuuge, so I ended up cutting, shaping, and carving it with a box cutter, sand paper, and a screwdriver (for the engravings). And after I spent 234082394234 hours doing that and getting awesome hand cramps, I found a mini saw and a cheapo engraver, which kind of sucked balls because my hands were already twitchy. But I did use that to clean up some stuff!


I'm not really an expert with sculpting and painting, nor am I an art student or anything, so any suggestions (appropriate for a novice, of course) and tips on how to improve would be baller! I see that some of her proportions are a little off, and the face is pretty derpy.

Also, Redeemed Riven = one of my favorite skins in the game :D

Edit: Thanks again for the support, guys! I've gotten a few messages about whether or not I'll be selling her. Unfortunately, I'd like to keep her on my dresser for a variety of reasons, but I'm flattered that some people liked her enough to want to buy her =]

If you were to sculpt another, I'd buy, even if unpainted.

Not perfect, but looks very nice and detailed. I like how you paint her, cose i sculpt too and know how hard it is><
If it is interesting to hear about the shortcomings of her hand-arched unnaturally best to sculpt the body, align and bake, and then sculpt armor and clothing (I have even rolled into a thin pancake and then cut out the shape with a knife, and glue to attach the relief). And do not listen to me, just practice, over time, things will be better;)

Sushumo Featured By Owner Jun 24, 2012
Thanks! :D It was around a week and a half from start to finish. I'm not sure what the actual work time was, between consulting interweb tutorials, sleeping, going to work, gaming, letting the paint dry, being social, etc. ;D

My friend actually linked me to your sculpture. It's honestly amazing! If you ever plan to start making them and selling, I'd love to be your first customer!

You should add me in game! I'd love to play with you. :)

Thanks! Yeahhh, I tried her face over the course of 2 days, and once I got one feature right, I ended up smashing some other part of her face to death in the process. Maybe I'll figure out how to do those one day.... :(

Thanks. :D I started off a pale bluey white grey color, but after attempting to shade, fixing my screwed up shading, and remixing paint over a few days, I completely went off base without realizing it. I'll have to try to fix it next time I whip my paint out.
