My Clay Buddy
So this blogger thing replaces the pink-flowered, heart-stamped diary I used to have (which my cousin read out loud at a party one time). I was so angry at him, I ran out with my large, stuffed rabbit onto the front lawn and cried. Oh well, that was a long time ago. Glad to be here!
Anyways, I'm using this to post progress on multiple projects of mine and gain feedback from professionals (like you). I've always been interested in character design. I'm trying to spruce up my drawing skills and study anatomy on my own time. This past weekend, I've been working on an anatomy armature made from floral wire, aluminum wire and Klean Klay. I started on this sculpture last year, but it's been collecting dust, until now. The left over clay's been in my closet since 2007. It's crazy! The clay still works well!
I know that some elements may seem larger than others, but they'll be adjusted once I lay down layers of muscle. I'm having trouble working with the skull because it's less than 2 inches high and my fat fingers/tools are delicately poking it. I plan to make a much larger, separate model of just the skull so I can work more details into it. In the mean time I have to keep working on this one!
