Today I got some replica bear claws (the wolf claws didn't seem to stand out too much, surprisingly. They would have probably gotten lost in all that fuzz around the fingers.
) and am now more than 50 dollars into my project thanks to the claws alone. >.< That's definitely not what I wanted to happen, but I am pure hogwash when it comes to sculpting anything at all, so maybe I can get something good out of all this in the end.
One nail is going to need to be moved just a little bit, but otherwise they're fantastic. They really give the illusion of retractable claws if you tuck your fingers under just a little bit.
Mask comes next. At this point I'm thinking some kind of fox/cat creature.
