Figures, Figure Everywhere


Today we started doing our 36' sculpture of the standing figure. I fitted together the armature and wire and by the time I got it all done the class was over. I am looking forward to spending the last 6 weeks of class on this piece. He looks like Jack Skelington now, but I'll slap some clay on him next week.

This was the first session on the new pose from the new model in Carolyn Pyfroms class. The last two sessions have been a bust with the model. We only have two weeks for this pose so it's gonna be a fast block in and value study. Only 7 weeks left in school, time is flying by....

Love seeing this 'in progress' stage, with those lovely chunky brush strokes

Thanks, yeah, we have to work fast on this pose and it's more about blocking in fast to establish the values as quick as we can, and then detail it up as we have a chance. The thing we are going for is the creation of space, putting the figure in space, so if you get picky you are in deep trouble.
