Naked Clay People, as promised:

So here's the final round of naked clay people for now, sculpture number 4.  At this point I'll have to make more naked clay people before I can post any more of them...

And that was the conclusion of the first stretch of figure sculpting.  More other stuff on the way, more naked clay people eventually most likely.

A little break

So here's a brief intermission from the naked clay people parade: Train stations!

Little photoshop quickies, might even paint one or two up all fancy too.

... there will be more naked clay people shortly.

More Figure Sculpture

So, here's some more of this. We have the third attempt, which is more of a sketch - as the time allotted was much shorter than all the others.

My favorite parts are as follows: I like the way his hand drops off into the lump he's sitting on. I also like that he looks like a very stern, naked, news anchor.

More soon, really.

Figure Sculpture!

So I've wanted to try figure sculpting for some time now but have never had both the time and the opportunity at the same time. Recently however things have come together and I'm sculpting from a real live human at the Art Students League of New York, and it's fantastic! These here are shots of my second attempt, which could use some more work, but the pose is over - on to better things.

And I was wondering if I could get some opinions on this: I like the academic work I do, and I like to share it, but it feels pretty mismatched with the general content that I have here... how do the humans that look at my business feel about it? Do you guys like the more academic "Look! I'm painting!" "Look! I'm sculpting!" is it preferable that it go by the wayside, or maybe somewhere else. Thoughts? Opinions? Irrelevant statements?

Depending on the consensus, there will be more paintings and sculptures shortly.

Oh, and just for kicks here's a couple shots of attempt No. 01 at this whole figure sculpting bit:

That's all for now.
