Proko 3D - New Sculpting YouTube Channel
We just created a new YouTube channel called Proko 3D! https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCVJZ_7rNdX2NO2K8pG4uF5w We’re developing so much new content now that it makes sense to create a dedicated channel for traditional and digital sculpting. This Thursday, @Andrew Keith is releasing a course on the basics of figure sculpting in clay. The free content from that course will be available on that YouTube channel, published weekly :) We need your help to make this new channel thrive. If sculpting and 3D modeling interest you at all, please subscribe and share the channel with anyone else you think might benefit from some sculpting lessons. It would really help us out to bring you even more Proko content!

I NEED YOUR BAD SCULPTURES!
Hey I’m reaching out to ask for images of your first sculptures! If you are anything like me they were probably pretty terrible and you probably made some common mistakes that most beginners make. I need references for an upcoming lesson on “top 10 sculpting mistakes” so if you’d like your work featured submit it here! Don’t be self conscious and the worse the better! Haha whether its the face, a feature study, torso, or full figure. If it’s a sculpture and its terrible post images below! (If possible good quality, well lit images) I look forward to seeing your worst work!

Sculpting Course Review!
If you've benefitted from the Figure Sculpting Fundamentals course or the Portrait Sculpting course I'd love to hear about it! I'm looking for student reviews on the course to use in future marketing. Even if you've only been able to learn from the free lessons and would like to leave a review it would be greatly appreciated!

Sculpting materials
People have asked for a list of materials to start collecting for the course. There will be a lesson on materials coming soon but this should be enough to get you started. I’ll be using Chavant medium NSP clay which is an oil based clay. You can use that or monster clay, or other types of plasteline clay also called non-dry modeling clay. (Even the dollar tree and Walmart have some non-drying modeling clay that’s not too bad) I recommend a reusable type of clay. I also recommend some soft aluminum wire that’s between 12-14 gauge of thickness. (For armatures) and some simple tools (a cheap set of wood tools and perhaps a loop tool) the first assignments are coming soon so get your clay, wire, and tools ready!

At What Temperature Should I heat Clay?
Hello, so recently I bought some clay, but the seller just said that I needed to warm it once at a high temperature but didn't tell me the details, so I don't really know the exact temperature to warm it up and for how long should I heat it? Thanks!

Sculpting Hair - Help!
As you can see, the hair looks a mess. this is a life sized sculpt using monsterclay and bits of plastic toys etc. for some of the mech parts. Can anyone suggest how I should tackle this? Terminator 2 has short hair, and I've searched how other sculptors have managed short hair, and they usually tackle it by creating hair in a more stylized manner. Should I just stylize the hair? The problem is, the face is not stylized, so may look off. Thanks community

Queen Elizabeth Portrait Sculpt
Just did this two hour portrait sculpture study of Queen Elizabeth II. This is a great exercise to try to capture a likeness in a short amount of time. I uploaded a video of the process to my personal YouTube channel if you're interested. https://youtube.com/shorts/jw53To2oSsE?feature=share Join the Portrait Sculpting course if you'd like to learn the ins and outs of portrait sculpture!

Male Torso Sculpture exercise
The torso is always a great exercise. I added on the head to this torso because something that's tricky to get right is the size and shape of the head correct in relationship to the neck and torso. If you do any torso sculptures post them below!

Some Head Anatomy stuff
Some diagrams and stuff from my ebook as well as from the portrait sculpting course. Anatomy is interesting and great to learn but knowledge of anatomy won’t make you a great artist. The fundamentals are more important than memorizing muscles.

Secondary Form
Here's some images of the simplified head that I sculpted for the upcoming Portrait Sculpting course! Feel free to use these as references for drawing, painting or sculpture. No need for attribution! This was also the donated reward for the Proko Ukraine Fundraiser but it looks like those are out of stock. If you'd like a limited edition cast of this sculpture I did a little kickstarter to make it available. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/pentamantis/simplified-head-sculpture-cast?ref=project_build Or better yet sign up for the portrait sculpting course so that you can sculpt your own simplified head sculpture! I hope to see you in the course! (presale ends soon!)

Hand temperature and sculpting
Hi all! I'm new to sculpting and my first prompt of curiosity is the topic of clay 'hardness' in relation to body (hand) temperature. I bought some NSP Medium clay and I'm finding it nicer than the Sculpey Premo to smooth and shape, but quite sticky and soft. Now I'm wondering if I'm finding the clay sticky more-so because I have a quite warm natural body temp (e.g. my hands feel warm most of the time, even on cold days etc)? I'm not in a hot climate either, so I'm wondering what others' experience is with clay and hand temperature. Is it a factor in choosing clay? I couldn't find anything specific about this searching the web... I'm wondering whether I order some NSP hard or try a different clay?

New to the world of sculpting!
Hey all! I've just picked up sculpting and I'm quite keen to see where this rabbit hole goes! I already love drawing and painting insects, but I realised there is a somewhat limited range of insect sculptures and 3D around. Ideally I'd like to be able to sculpt fairly accurate wasp sculptures to paint and maybe one day make available for educational use (as wasps are often so small as to not be able to understand their anatomy well with the naked eye). Anyway, here's my first go after signing up for Andrew's course. Used some tie wire I had lying around (I've ordered some aluminium) for the armature and got some Sculpey primo to start with (I've also ordered some NSP medium). I hope to eventually build insect/wasp armatures to sculpt onto. I like to work small, this figure uses a 1cm cranial unit size. I find the primo polymer clay a bit soft, it's hard to just wrap onto the wire. That's the first lesson I've learned, get harder clay... Feedback appreciated, I'd also like any good info or courses on sculpting small creatures (aside general tabletop miniature sculpting with 'green stuff' I see a lot of - which I'll also probably be interested in)? I'm also maybe picking up 3D with Blender too to help plan sculptures, I really like Eric Keller's work as an (ideal) example!

Clay finishes
Hi community! Anyone here know about using waterbased clay that can help me? This bust I've used waterbased clay and I've never used it before. I want to fire this, but I have noticed due to shrinkage there are little gaps in the ear and a few uneven surfaces. This is not completely dry, however is very powdery and no longer cold to the touch, so probably close to be ready to fire. Can this be sanded or slightly tooled? or could I potentially ruin it by doing this? It may be hard to match the surface finish if I sand it as i did lightly sponge the surface while it was wet to give a nice finish. What are your thoughts. Thanks
