Too strong to handle the images....
but they are so cool that I can't deny that I love them!!!
The style of the storyboard is unique as well, the effect of blur gives more feeling like looking through a lens.
It should always be bore in one's mind that he must be responsible for his life........
Heres a step by step process of a sculpture piece i did called
" SURRENDER "
ASSEMBLING SPACE AND TOOLS
I try to stay organized...most importantly on the initial setup....helps the creative process...have everything laid out....and thought of in advance....i hate needing something and then having to stop the creative flow because i dont have the right tool/s
CUTTING THE CLAY
It helps to have a bountiful selection of the clay needed - at hand and pre cut!!
The MOST important stage of the whole process...if the armature sucks...you will pay for it later....
like life right....strong foundation......
a mistake i might have made which may give me problems later is that i didnt consult with a mold maker in making this armature......for my next pieces that is definitely at the top of the task list....makes everyones job and mine easier in the long run....itll be allright tho...just a bit more work on my end with final assembly ....
i used " fast steel epoxy putty to hold the armature together....love this stuff...sets like rock in 5 minutes!
A REFERENCE MODEL
INLAYING THE FILLER
i used tinfoil for the filler on this one....it helps gauge the big masses and saves clay....which is a good thing seeing as how expensive that stuff is......150.00 bucks for a case of 20 2lb bars......wtf
FIRST ROUND OF CLAY
4TH DAY OF CLAY INLAY AND PROPER PROPORTIONS
