figure sculpture stuff

When asked about casting, my sculture professor said "You want to cast something? But that would take a whole day! You could sculpt another figure in that time!"

paper doll

John begged me to draw him a female adventurer-type character for him to sculpt. Orthos and an awesome motorcycle will be forthcoming.

PS. Also, there are some new updates over at my thesis blog that people should check out

quick, random doodles. I'd love to take a more painterly approach more often, but something about the brushes I was using made Photoshop crash repeatedly. ughhhh

male figure

I always find myself wishing I had much more time to work on these before class ended and I had to tear them down........ I wish I could at least get to the point of adding some detail

spanish art 1500-1600

a few more sketches from the exhibit

st. Francis Borgia

I took a train down to DC today with my figure sculpture class and sketched some of the crazy statues in the 1500-1600's Spanish art traveling exhibit. The exhibit included works by Velasquez, Pedro de Mena and some of their contemporaries.

done for a Baltimore public works campaign where we art school students illustrate poetry written by local middleschoolers. I ended up with a strange psychedelic poem about flying.

I'm really enjoying my figure sculpture class. All we do is sculpt from life for 6 hours, then tear everything down only to start again. Every day. It's so awesome.
