Ok, I am working on trying to model a giant rib cage and need some ideas. Ive tried using copper wires to form the foundation but it just doesnt seem to work. Any ideas out there from the pros, as this is my second modeling attempt?? Thanks in advance!!
Something else that you might try is some play-doh. Use the play-doh to form the body cavity inside the rib cage, then warp the greenstuff ribs and spine over the top...when the bones are fully hardened , scrape the soft clay out! The way I see it, you have two challenges...the first is sculpting the greenstuff to look like ribs in the first place...I can't help you with that, that takes talent and experience...talent can't be taught, and experience comes from practice, and when it comes to freehand sculpture of a skeleton, I have neither talent nor experience. The second challenge is how to make the rib cage shape properly while you're working with a floppy mass of greenstuff, and then hold its shape until it's hardened. That's where a form that you lay the ribs on comes in, as long as the form is made of something that can be removed later...like clay, ice, wax, and so on.

Hey thats actually a good idea! Im currently trying to make the rib cage from Cat5 twisted pair wire, and my main problem is getting stuff to stay in place while trying to form other ribs ect. Ill try the playdoh method and kinda stick the wires in it to hold it until I get them secure. Thanks!!
