Another figure drawing class

Here is anther portrait from tonights figure drawing class. For this one i made it slightly larger than life size. I started off trying to get the basic structure and then went for an emotion. To finish this piece i am going to try to add more evil and horror, then i will make it into a halloween mask. Will post pics when i get further.

I am currently working on some videos to put on youtube. I am doing some airbrush work and i will be doing sculpting. If anyone has any ideas they might like to see i am open to suggestions. i will start out with filming my quick sketches in clay which are 20-30 mins sculpts and then bits and pieces of other sculptures.

New portrait sculpture from class

This is a new sculpture i just finished for scupting class. I had a week long intensive session with John Horn at PAFA. We worked from a model for five days. Overall it was a good class, i was forced to do a few things i never done before and focused on the structure and the planes of the face. The first day we had to make a head armature, which i hate using, then we did a generic skull with planes. On the second day we started from the model. Another thing i found amazing is how much larger the male head is to the female. My first measurements fromt the generic skull were from the male model we had. Then the class split up and i decided to work from the woman. The male model was not a large man, but to scale my head down for the female i had to lose at least 5-10 pounds of clay. These exercises really help me understand the structure better. Comments and critiques welcome.

New sculpture mini busts

This is the finished girl skull scultpure. I just finished making a mold and will be casting soon. This will be casted in latex and filled with foam. This is about 1/3 life size and was sculpted from the model. The model favored one side towards me which gave me the idea to only have one side a finished face.

Here is another mini bust i have been working on. I am happy with the character and the way it looks right now. I need to finish up some texture wrinkles then it will be ready to mold.

This last mini bust is still in progress. I came up with the idea while sculpting. Next step is to figure out what to do with the mouth.

This is a creature sketch i just finished
