Clay statues? That is cool! You're very talented! I've tried to do some sculptures of some of my pics but it never seems to work out too well. How big are most of these statues? Oliver Jöhnk
replies: "Thank you for your kind comment. The average size of my works is between 20 and 25 cm for a grown up. The smallest is 14 cm. Looking at your fantastic pictures it's hard to believe that you shouldn't be able to create some great sculptures. Though it costs a lot of time and some experiments to find out which material and technique you like best. Sculpting needs really much time and some less successful experiments. When I started with sculpting I left a sculpture standing upright while still not dry. The next morning I found this piece down on its knees, looking rather funny, but not natural in any respect. I had to start all over again. Therefore give it much more than only one try and in the end I'm sure your sculptures will be great."

Wow.. You got me shocked - Not only great drawer, but a sculptor, creator, inventor
Great work you have here. As for my personal point of view, it would look great if you've putted a small picture of a character next to figure (you know- in the same pic).
And then everyone would be stunned with similarity
Awesome work - keep up Oliver Jöhnk
replies: "Thank you very much for your kind words. I'm glad that you like my work. To show the finished sculptures together with the sketches is a very good idea and I think I will try this in future as far as I have proper sketches. In some cases the sketches are very rough or there are only several sketches of details and no sketch of the whole character."

Mythical creatures? Maybe you can do a mythical creature out of clay but the small detailed bits some times come off which is annoying. Oliver Jöhnk
replies: "Yes, it might be that I create some day mythical creatures. There are some dragon races in my story and even one race of winged unicorns. "

*A small golden/brown tabby cat trots in to Oliver's gallery and sits on a legde* Maybe when you have enough time you can send through pics of your dragons, hm?
*Licks a paw and quickly prowls out* Oliver Jöhnk
replies: "Hm, I'm not that satisfied with my dragon creations until now, but maybe I find some acceptable sketches."

OLIVER!!! *runs over and hugs* Sorry it's been so long since I last got in contact with you.. been fighting with the computer a lot. Anyways I just wanted to let you know that I'm still alive and currently waiting for updates to be posted up on my gallery... T__T no clue when that will actually happen. I look forward to hearing you again..

Wow, your sculpting is amazing! So much detail on comparatively small sculptures and then the very good paint-jobs on them, just great.
You say you use Efaplast- Do you use some wire-reinforcement in the more fragile parts like flying cloak folds or belts as well?
Am just wondering because I recently tried my hand at Efaplast as well and the fine details break rather easily even if it was handled correctly while sculpting.(And I was using a wire reinforcement on the fragile areas as well)
Anyhow, keep up this great work!
