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!

Nose texturing
question! What is the worst smell in your opinion? I did a demo on texturing in my most recent Patreon video where I took this nose from the rough stage to a more finished stage. Here you can see where the nose started and 50 mins later. People often ask me about texturing and the way I achieve my finished look so that’s what this demo was about. On patreon I do more casual projects where I film the process without cuts and just talk through my approach as I’m working. We do 2 projects each month and the demos usually last around 1 hour. Obviously I recommend first getting the Proko figure sculpting fundamentals course! After you’ve got that if you want even more demos in a less structured environment you might like sculpting along with us on Patreon too.

Loomis head
Loomis head sculpture anyone? The loomis head isn’t just for draftsman. It can help establish the primary forms on a sculpture so the details can be built on top. Check out my new sculpture course where we’ll go over this and much much more!

My first Zbrush Bust!
Hey guys! I've been learning the Zbrush software for two weeks now and I was able to come up with my first bust. In this case, it's my own version of Gandalf. I attached some of the concepts I did as a first aproach to what I wanted to do. Since it was me who sculpted and did the concept I felt free to not stick to any version in particular and I ended up with a slightly different version (Altough I was kind of aiming for bottom right design and hat number 5). All the painting was also done in Zbrush. Any critique, comment or tip is more than welcome!

My first portrait sculpture
This year I signed up to participate in the Canadian carving festival. It was long overdue. I had been thinking about it for years and I finally took the plunge. Knowing that I would eventually do this I watched many of Stan's videos to help me better understand the construction of the head. Needless to say I also watched Zoe's demo. It was very helpful. I am very happy with the results of my hard work. I made mistakes and I wish I took better pictures of the process and the final result. A rookie mistake. But ultimately It was a great experience that taught me a lot.

Critiques Needed
Hi everyone, I have no artistic training, but I like to sculpt, and I am trying to improve my skills. I am far more interested in hearing suggestions about how to improve my skills rather than comments that might apply only to this piece, but I imagine my errors in this piece are representative. In any case, I would be happy to hear any comments you have. I would also be interested in hearing what sorts of practices I might take up to improve. Should I just try to sculpt as much as I can? Should I try to watch as many videos by sculptors (or perhaps draftspeople) as I can? Should I seek out regular critiques by sculptors and art teachers? The sculpture in the pictures is in water-based clay and is a little larger than 3/4 of life size.

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!

Sculpture competition
If you can I highly recommend starting an artist’s group competition. I helped start the Intermountain Figure Sculpture Competition in Fall of 2020 in a private studio with several other professional sculptors. It was 3 days, 2x 3 hour sessions each day from a live model, and under $100 for the participation fee. As the youngest I was able to learn a lot from more experienced sculptors and it was just a great environment. These photos are from the second spring 2021 competition we just had.

I did this 45 min nose sculpt during an Instagram live video I recently posted. Fun little exercise. I’m thinking the next sculpting course will be on portraiture!

Concept sketch
On average, how many concept sketches do you typically do before you move to the final work of art? For a finished stone sculpture I’ll typically do around 3 sketches then a small maquette in clay, then transfer that maquette to the final piece of stone.

Gesture study from live model
Here’s a 3hr gesture study I did from a live modeling session with some other sculptors. Working from photos is sometimes the only option but whenever possible it’s great to work from life. Have you ever done a live modeling session for sculptors?

20 years ago I started with Sculpey Sculpture
It is never easy to draw the head before I learned how to head sculpture. Now with the skills I have more confidence and understand where I need the land mark to put in. I learned sculpture because I love art and at the same time I was attending 3d modelling and animation school. For those wanting to be a better artist, sculpture is a way to go! Bruce Willis is my first sculpture 20 years ago and the drawings were done this week. I putted in my color painting which I have always been struggling with color for years. Glad I came across Marco Bucci color theory and that I never looked back! I don't get paid to promote his work but great artist and teacher are hard to find!

1 hr Gesture study
Dark clay is great for focusing on the silhouette or outline or contours (which are much more important than the inside information). A lighter clay is good for seeing delicate surface details. Something to keep in mind when deciding on clay or the finish color for a resin cast. Here’s a gesture study I did today for my patreon patrons. If you’d like to join us over there I do a project twice a month where I record the sculpting process without cuts and I talk you through my thought process. (But of course get the Proko figure sculpting fundamentals course first to support all the great work Stan and his team are doing!) https://www.patreon.com/Andrewjosephkeith
