project something – somewhere around day 14

seemed to have stalled out on this guy – so trying to shame myself into getting back to work on him – pics in the round always show so much to work on. his back is very rough, and the curve of his spine, and the curve of the latissimus dorsi doesn’t work – also his torso is too thick , not enough compression at the side where he is bent towards his left leg. fought with his neck for a long time – it was horribly thick, its a bit better now, but the trapezius isn’t right. —- a lot of the curves that should be echoing/reinforcing the flow of the piece just aren’t.

ok. i see a lot to do.

  1. Don’t be down on yourself; at least you can look at it and see where it needs adjusting. Imagine how much harder it would be if you couldn’t spot where your work needed improving. I know what it’s like to hit a wall artistically — I’ve got two faces that have been sitting on my desk for going on three years now. Compared to that you’re moving at warp-speed.

    I saw this (sort of new) book mentioned on Muddy Colors blog: Pop Sculpture. It seems to have lots of info on moldmaking, making wax masters, and resin casting. Go look at it on Amazon (it has the look-inside feature) and tell me what you think.
