Every time I see sculptures like this makes me wanna try and do sculpting!

But I have to ask, how do you get the clay to dry? Do you use a kiln or let it air dry?

I wonder, have you even done any sculptures without a base bottom? Like the wooden stand there. Would it be even harder for you to do certain sculptures without it? o.O

HM.  I tend to use bases because it keeps the sculpt safe long term.  You're less likely to knock it over with a chunk of wood drilled and glued to the feet.  

For difficulty, yeah I use cantilevers that require the counterweight of the base, so many of my pieces need the base and couldn't stand up without it.  sculpting equivalent pieces sans base would be too difficult or too expensive for the outcome.
 
I theoretically ~could~ make a piece that didn't have a base, but I would have to take that into consideration with how it's posed/weighted.  I don't like the feeling of sculpting for safety/balance over using the base and being unrestrained with the pose.  If you wanted a 'baseless' piece I'd make some kind of clear foothold quasi base thing or use a clear resin base to feel better.

Just like my beloved Sonny - I can't do my work without the bass base.  :iconskrilllaplz:

I'm surprised you don't have Zecora as a sculpt yet. Very good though.
