Hello Oliver !Thanks for your feedback.
All the complex is made from the simple. I used ready-made human and horse models, cutting them into pieces and assembling them again to get the desired pose. Some elements are sculpted in Sculptris. All other elements and the assembly of the entire figure I did in Rhino
Yes something like that. Here's a simple example. I needed to make a taffrail sculpture for the Royal Caroline yacht. I found a suitable figure on the Internet (this is a scanned real sculpture) and changed it a little.
