Can you tell us a bit about your background and training?

Thank you!

I'm so happy..

Thank you for putting up a traditional 3D section, R! I don't feel so far behind in this.

first: Snow white witch, project: art doll for sale on eBay.
process: sculpt head, feet, hands, paint, construct doll.
Material: prosculpt and premo. Eyes hand-painted.

Me: I am self-taught, as much as anyone can be self-taught with the wealth of books, inspirational artists etc. floating around the universe.
Sculpture is my first love, but I crave to draw and paint.

First image is base witch, second is head and hands to give an idea of scale and third is closeup of doll's finished head.

Thanks for the crit.
Well, about my background & training, as many artists I do not have a "formal" diploma.
I grew up in an artistic eniroment _my dad is an artist_ and started practice since I was very young- the old times apprenticeship... - I did study drawing, sculpting in Fine art academy, but left midway 'cause I was already working as a cartoonist for newspapers. We also have good friends who are internationally aclaimed artists and spend some summers doing workshops there.
To not carry on too much, whoever is interested in more details can have a look here.

IMHO, luckily in this visual field, it is not the degrees that count but what one actually does! And one's qualifications can speak out imediately by spending 5minuntes and having a look at his portfolio.

This is a portrait doll that I did on a comission. The family of the girl were happy with the results. I am also self taught in sculpture. I have had some training in 2D art. I am just sharing, my work can't hold a candle to much of the art that I have seen here. Thanks for letting me share. I love this site and all that you are doing!

Euphrosyne,

Wow, I have to say that I am fascinated by dolls and miniatures, but have never had any experience with creating them ~ so it's awesome to see this work! Can you tell us something about your process for creating your dolls? Dolls have a strange, sometimes twilight zone charm which I appreciate ~ funny, but true!

Thank you for posting this ~ hope to see more of your work!

Thank you for your interest Rebeccak. This sculpture was modeled with a polymer resin clay called cernit that can be baked in a conventional or toaster oven. I used the picture that I posted next to the doll and another profile picture of the girl to get the proportions for the face. I learned the technics from doll sculpting books. One thing about sculpture that I have experienced, that is rare when I am drawing, is that I have sometimes gone into a
"zone" where the modeling becomes almost automatic. Like a pure form of observation being transmitted to my fingers without conscious thought or analysis. Perhaps I could get into this "zone" when I am drawing with much more practice. I don't know? I probably shouldn't have brought that up on this thread, it just popped into my head.

Anyway thank you for the response and I love all the information and inspiration that you are providing on these threads. I appreciate your generousity so much.

Patti Gibson

Euphrosyne / Patti

Thanks for elaborating on your process, it's really quite cool. And thanks for the kind comments, they are appreciated! I really hope that you will post more of your work and perhaps share with us some of your techniques through a tutorial if you are intrested.

Looking forward to seeing more good work!

I just started getting into sculpture a couple weeks ago. Here is my first attempt at sculpting anything. I have two other pieces in the works that I'll post once I'm finished. I'm really loving sculpture. I'm a tattoo artist so I spend all day doing 2d stuff...It's definitely different.

Thanks!

my experience at ACCD was great! and heres my story...

Right after high school i applied at a couple of colleges, got turned down, or couldent get a loan to attend them. So i ended up spending 3 years at community college just taking some figure drawing and terrible painting classes. Most everyone was telling me to just forget the "art thing" and just get a real job. But a good friend of mine (alumni of ACCD) told me to just apply one more time, so i did, and got in! More so i was also approved for the student loan to attend! (not cheap, ill be paying it back umtil I'm 40)

So i had enough money to attend, but i live an hour away (no traffic) from school. So i decide to just commute. The way this works out is that California has the worse traffic on the planet. So if i leave at 6:00 for a class at 8:00 i get there at 9:00. Three hours in gridlock traffic is not good. Something needed to be done. So what i ended up doing was leaving the house at around 2:00 am and geting to school before 3:00 am and sleeping in my car untill it was time to go to class. Not much fun, but It was the only way to get any sleep.

So anyway, the classes at ACCD are amazing. The teachers range from your best friend to your worse enemy, but they all know what they are talking about and are amazing teachers. The best part about ACCD is they realy encourage you to to develop YOUR own interests and designs. They of course want you to learn the basics, but then they just let you go wild with anything you want with very few restrictions.

anyway, long sory short. They have an amazing illustration department, but i felt that by 4th term i would be taking a lot of classes that didnt have very much to do with my focus (entertainment design) so i applied for some jobs during my school break and got one! The first 3 foundation terms are incredible. The school is incredible, I would recomend anyone that is realy serious about being an artist/designer to go to this school. But be ready for long hours, hard work, and a damn good time.

sory i rambled on so much!
