This year (as I do every year) I'm going to Anime Detour. I've decided to go as Krieg the Psycho from Borderlands 2 (A female take of course). I'm really excited about building his costume. I have his necklace completed, his mask, belt buckle.. pants are almost done.. shoes came in the wrong size.. blah blah. I'm working on it. It will be epic. You'll see.
I've been really behind on sculpting lately. I've been so busy with Russian classes, work, and my costume. I really want to sculpt a new Princess Luna and a piece from Маша и Медведь that I'm really looking forward to. I can't seem to find the motivation to work on them because my Princess Twilight was recently broken and I'm slowly bringing myself around to repairing her. She was FINISHED and I was nearly done priming her for painting. 
Wings broke, so I pulled them off, horn broke, leg broke, hair broke off. I've fixed a few of these things, but the wings will be the largest pain in the ass.
What do you guys do when you lose motivation? I want to keep sculpting of course, I love it, and I start new projects.. I just can't seem to bring myself back to the old ones.

First Plastic Cast Ever. Borderlands 2 belt buckle by Reyndrys
First Plastic Cast Ever. Borderlands 2 belt buckle
This year for Anime Detour, I am going as a female Krieg the Psycho from Borderlands 2.
I sculpted his belt buckle, made a silicone mold of it, then casted it in plastic. I was a bit hasty when pouring because it cures in like two seconds.. So there are a few bubbles..
But yes, the cracks are there intentionally.

Rarity Sculpt (last sculpt of 2014) by Reyndrys
Rarity Sculpt (last sculpt of 2014)
This was my last sculpt of 2014 as a secret santa gift for :icontriplerainbowdash: 
I had a hard time shipping her away, she's so cute! She is holding a Winnie the Pooh plush (sculpt) because that is one of the things TRD likes :3
She was made from Super Sculpey polymer clay.
I also tried a new type of primer and paint thanks to the advice of another Deviant. The primer is white Krylon, the paint is Golden Acrylics (fluid) and finished with Mod Podge.
She is quite a bit smoother than my other pieces (again thanks to the advice) 
I used to be able to see EVERY brush stroke I made in the paint and it bothered me because the clay was sanded smooth. I was using cheap acrylic paint. For some reason I never thought paint made a difference, but it really does. Wow.
