Anyway, our teacher is super amazing and hilarious, and I REALLY enjoyed it, the 3 hours zoomed by. We set up an armature and then gave it a basic pose, and then learned about clay and the tools a little bit. And then a model came in and posed 4 separate times, facing different directions. It was an awesome class and I felt really surprised at the form I got after only 1.5 or 2hrs or so of work.
I spent most of the time on the abdomen/thigh/lower back/gluteal area and also a bit on the legs. I am pretty happy with the upper thigh and stomach area. There are definitely some weight issues in the torso, I think it's not in proportion yet with the rest of the body (needs more clay), and I need to give her arms, a few other defining features, and also spend a LOT of time on the head/neck/shoulders. I found the head very tough to get a good read on, and getting the shape of the chin and sides of the face etc was very tough and finicky. I will definitely need to spend more time on this next class.
Anyway, first sculpture EVER?!?!? That was crazy and really fun, and my hands smell like clay a lot (and probably will for a few days) :) Again next week! I'll post photos as it progresses. I think we're doing a male model sculpt as well later on in the class. This rocks.
