nicely done! these are also done in a similar way as the bas relief sculpture assignment. Looking really good. The male portrait is especially well done. With the female portrait I might recommend softening the forms a bit like areas under the jaw which feels to sharp of a transition. Soft and subtle helps to capture the life like feel of the portrait. Keep it up!

First pancake try. Supposed to be George Clooney. I could see how these will be helpful with likenesses.

Awesome! It looks like the facial features might be a bit large compared to the shape of the head. Great job!

Nicely done! Be careful that the eye doesn't overwhelm the structure of the eye socket. In the photo you see how much of a shadow is cast by the structure of the eye socket and in your sculpt the eye might bulge out a bit much. Great start! I look forward to seeing more of your assignments!

The pictures aren’t the best, we are remodeling our kitchen. My usual spot is no longer available until that is finished.

This is looking great! ears might be a little large for the average person but the shape of the head and other features is looking good! Keep it up!

Hi Andrew. Do you have any clay brand that you prefer? Or that you indicated?

I really like Chavant NSP medium clay. I also recently did a video about some inexpensive Dollar Tree clay that's not bad. https://youtu.be/OmtQ7yCitgs?si=NQ0CTheiqyb3I1AB

hey great job! super fun sculpture from imagination. If I had to give a critique I think the eyes, nose and mouth might be a bit large compared to the size of the head. Keep up the great work! Also what type of clay is this?

Hi Andrew, Can I put the clay into microwave to heat it up ? Can you also provide some glossary in the lesson notes section for non-english speaking students ? Thanks

I believe you can though I haven't tried microwaving my clay.

Hey these are looking great! One thing I'd watch out for is making the hips too wide. I think I myself did this in the video lesson, so I might just change the width of the hips by bending the legs down closer to the centerline (spine) so the hips are thinner to give room for the clay. Can't wait to see these armatures develop! keep it up! really fun poses.

Hi Andrew Joseph Keith please help me comment on this other sculpture. I sculpted Michael Scofield in the movie Prison break. It's hard to catch his signature.

Hey nicely done with the base and the lighting on the sculpture! It's coming along but yes it is very hard to get a good likeness. I might consider getting some more of the photos when he has a more serious expression (rather than the smiling ones) and especially the side profile view.To me from the side it looks like the chin is tucked back too far and the neck doesn't extend forward in space enough.  From the front It looks like the shape of the head might be slightly off (to me it looks like his jawline is wider and almost as wide as the widest point at the back of the skull when looking from the front view. There's also more shadow and depth to the brow ridge and eye sockets and the nose on your sculpture looks to be a little large. These are just some of the things that stand out but great job and I hope you'll keep it up! It is really coming along and it's one of the better student sculptures I've seen so far.

Hi Andrew, no idea if you still read these posts, but i just started out with your course. I was wondering how you heat up your chavant clay considering it is in such a huge pot. Do you just put it on the stove? Or in the oven? And how high is the heat you use? Thanks for the reply :)

Hey yeah I try to respond to most comments though sometimes they slip through the cracks. I usually put it in the oven at as low as it will go and that warms it up nicely. Or I have also put it on its side facing a little space heater with a fan that warmed the clay up (a blow drier can work for that too). Really helps for the beginning stages but once most of the mass is in place then I don't heat up the clay after that early stage.
