Little head sculpt

wisdom

Unblooded
Hi,
I´m newbie and I decide, that my first step will be little head sculpt.
This is the way, how I´ll test my conditions, skills and patience :rolleyes:

So, during 1,5 hour I was made this sculpt

But because this clay dry on air, it was very difficult to make all things and details, beacuse it dried very fast.
So it´s reason, why it looks so bad and cracky.

Anyway: for prototyping I think particulary it's useful to try to get your hands on oil-based clay, it never dries, remains semi-soft for long periods of time depending on heat, and gives you more than enough time to work.

Using the bottleneck as a base is a great idea, it gives stability and provides you a grip, a axis to rotate your sculpt easily.

For a first attempt it looks very good, and with some more time you'd be able to do a lot more.
But mind your workflow, it's much like sketching: take your time to block the general shape, and slowly start working on the details. Else you might end up with one hyper-detailed eyesocked and a mandible, while the rest looks different in shape and flow.

Keep working on that, I need to practise my sculpting-skills more often, maybe we can contact each other on this.
