Hi CodeNothing
That anatomy study looks great. What is it made of? I mean what type of clay. I guess you have a lot of wire inside to support it right? These muscles are painted or its some clay with color like that? ... I'am thinking of doing something like that myself, is there anything special I should know?

Yes, there is a wire armature inside the bones. If you are planning on making one, use a very stiff wire that will not wobble around when you are sculpting on it. If you dont need pliers to bend it, its probably too weak.
nail the armature into a wood base. They can be found at any home improvement store. Their cheep. The bones are made of super sculpty. Its a polymer clay (wont dry out) and can be fired in your home oven when its done. The clay is a flesh color, but once its cooked use a off white enamel spray paint on it. DONT use pure white paint, it will look like a toy if you do.

once the paint on the skeleton dries use sculpty 3 to make the muscles. Sculpty 3 comes in different colors and one is the red color you see in the pic. once you are done with the muscles use a hair dryer to harden them up a bit. You could fire it again in the oven, but it tends to crack the bones that were already fired and make the paint do wierd things. so i dont recomend it.

other than that make sure to get a realy good anatomy book and if you can find one get a book on making armatures. Rey Bustos is apparently coming out with DVD's and i made this sculpture in his class, so deffinetly keep an eye on his site.

Andreja - Very cool sculpture work! I want to do some traditional stuff really bad after seeing that! Hopefully, I will be able to take a sculpture class next semester!

Here's a paper mache sculpture I did of Gerald from the Hey Arnold tv show. I did this... 4 years ago. But I still like it. I know the way that it is supported is pretty "non-standard" but I didn't know a thing about sculpture when I made it. Oh well!

Smile Some of the portraits I did

Wow, great thread, there are so many great works in here. Keep it up guys.

Here are three of my pieces that I did last year at the Fine Arts Educational Center "Sumatovacka", Belgrade.
That small white one on the first picture is dated from 2002.



I have some more clay portraits at my site so you can check them out too.

Special greetings to my maestro friend, Andreja.

Can't wait to see more of your stuff guys. Keep 'em comin'!

ttesla,

Great to see your work here! I particularly like the picture of the 2nd sculpture, of the older man. I think the proportions on this one are much better, where on the first, the face looks a bit long to me ~ but I am quite envious that you have done such nice sculptures, it is something I've always wanted to do!

Checked out your website, you have more very nice stuff there, too!! Very happy to have you on the forum, hope that you will be posting more of your work and participating in the Workshops!

Cheers,

~Rebeccak

fooxoo,

Great to see you revive this thread! I have to agree, this is a really nice piece, particularly if you've never sculpted before.

Will you guys be doing full figures as well? Look forward to seeing more of your work.

Cheers,

~Rebeccak

wow some stunning work here!

heres my first humble attempt at doing a sculpt ... its plasteline (i hate it ... not much fun to work with imo). its about 6cm high ... you can see the size comparisson to the 50 cent coin.



cheers

sone_one,

Hey there, welcome aboard. What was this piece done for? It reminds me a bit of Toulousse Lautrec's caricatures / paintings * for example:



Were you really going after something stylized?

Cheers,
