There are a couple of things that bother me though. The interruption of the inner tibial line by the gastrocnemius makes his right lower leg look deformed. The calf too strongly wraps and overlaps the soleus creating an unnatural bulge. This does not appear in the original sculpture. 2) The lower abdomen could use some strong twist lines or folds, with less belly bulge, as in the original sculpture. 3) His left wrist is too bulbous from 3 views shown. The right hand placement looks unsure securing the back of the vase. 4) I donít understand the cavity in the lower back. Iíve never seen that anomaly before. The muscles in that area donít look quite right. I also think the flowing water would be more effective (and aesthetically pleasing) if it flowed down to the bottom of the base, as in the original sculpture. The base could be a little more chiseled and hard-edged to look more rocky.
I agree with some of those points, however, the main issue I had with this, was deciding whether to copy it warts 'n all, or make it more naturalistic. This Pajou piece is obviously quite a rapidly made clay prototype, and the forms are often exaggerated, and are never resolved to a finished level anywhere.
If you take a look at this image
you can just how impressionistic it is. I'd say the tibial lines are too harshly depicted, you don't see that in reality, and certainly not on my own legs, so that was artistic exaggeration on his part.
He would of course have resolved all of this in the final marble sculpt, but that has been lost so we'll never get to see it.
My version has ended up a bit of a mixture between trying to get the feel for this clay prototype, and a more finished look where I've added in my own anatomy.
Even if I had copied it exactly, there would still be anatomical errors, because they do exist in the original, as it was never intended to be a final display piece, just notes for the artist.
So this was more about getting the general feel of the original, which for me is the feeling of movement in it, even though it's a sitting pose, mainly due to the strained, exaggerated nature of the pose and muscle tension.

Rasmus - beautiful finish
ShamesDean - excellent
I will have to do without a final render - just needed a break from sculpting for a while and did not do much more in the end.
Proud of all of you guys , though... hope to see everyone back for the next workshop in a couple of months
I'm glad you guys found it useful and thanks to everybody for sharing their tips and tricks
Great job... the highlight thread will be coming shortly

Thanks to Intervain for putting the SPOTLIGHT thread together - it's my fault for not getting it up sooner, so for that, I apologize.

I know it is reeeeeeeeeeeaaaaaaally late to post this, but better late then never. If it wasn't for this Workshop I wouldn't have done this. I was really upset that I didn't have the time to participate of the workshop but then I decided to model this piece anyway later, so if you guys could have a look and tell me what you think, that would be great. It has been posted also in the galleries. There you'll find more views and information about it. Thanks!
