Completed Sculpture

Here are a few photos of my latest. Now it's time to have it cast in bronze. The sculpture was modeled in water clay, but her right hand is in oil based clay to prevent the fingers from drying and breaking off.

New Photos

Here are some new photos of Yma after the 6th session. I had a great time working on the arms this evening. The model is very defined and took a lovely and expressive pose, which will be more apparent when I add the right hand.

Three Sculptures Delivered to Foundry

It's a big weight of my mind to have finally delivered these sculptures to the foundry. They've all been in progress for too long. It takes a great deal of diligence to maintain hydration while also controlling the mold...

Five Week Sculpture

I had only five weeks (15 hours) to complete this 1/3 life sized sculpture. The pose was quite complex as well. It's a bit rough around the edges, but provided a good challenge. Since it doesn't have any armature, it can also be fired.

Something New

WIP Update

It's been a few weeks since I posted images of the figure study that I'm currently working on at the Gage Academy's reserved sculpting studio.

Week Three Progress

Here are a few photos of my latest WIP after 8.5 hours with the model. After blocking the figure I spent the last 5 or 10 minutes of the session starting to map in the face and hair. The next stage will be to finish the secondary forms and start with the tertiary level of detail. There are a lot of compound curves in this one which is always  fun!
