    My First Sculpture

    Hello this is my first head sculpture using a quick sketch I've done sort of a reference. It sort of differs from the original sketch and this is still a WIP.

    Morning, red

    Good-looking piece of work, especially for a first attempt on sculpting the head (which I find is a git at the best of times): out of interest, is this the first sculptural work you have done, and what material is it you are working in...hazarding a guess at polymer clay here? If it is, I would appreciate your thoughts on using this, as I am contemplating investing in some Sculpey III and moving away from crank and water clay and any tips etc. you might have picked up would be invaluable

    On the piece itself, the sketch you are working from is great and shows a good understanding of the forms of the head, whilst the sculpture has a good sense of character. I would be interested to see the work in its finished state, and was wondering if you plan to add more surface texturing, as I find this really helps to cut down on any distracting shine from a smooth clay surface and leads the eye over the forms of a 3D piece.

    Anyway, all the best with the work!

    Bulk up the neck some. Get the sinews going from the neck to the shoulders to really pop. You might want to get the shoulders just a bit wider and built up. Once you get that done, you should get the creases and cracks of the skin to show through. I can see this being a really good first go. Good luck.

    Great to see that torso developing red; I'd love to see some images of the piece in profle and from behind as well if possible to get a feel for the sculpture as a whole. Like Doc says, this is shaping up really well as a first sculpture, though I would go back and enlarge the supra-sternal notch (the V-shaped depression where the two ends of the collar bones meet at the base of the neck) to break up the hard line your creature's collar bone is making across the front of the piece Keep up the good work mate
