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!

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.

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

Sculpting the skull
What would you like to see in a portrait sculpting course? While lessons are still coming out for the figure sculpting course I’m working hard on the upcoming Portrait Sculpting course! Here’s a look at one of the assignment demos, sculpting a realistic skull! I’m so pumped for this course!

Sculpting Facial Stubble in Chavant clay
Can anyone recommend a good technique to create facial stubble? I have tried a few different ways. One, just scraping various lines using a fine tool, however it just looks like I've scraped the face. So I tried using a fan rake tool thing, seen here. However I think it looks like sort of tight curly African American stubble, and not the Anglo Saxon stubble I'm going for. HELP!

First attempt. Feedback requested
Hello This is my first attempt at sculpting the head. It would be great to have feedback on proportions. I used air dry clay. I think I’ll use oil based clay next time, as I got dust everywhere.

Where Can I Get a 3d model Which I can rotate the joints?
Hey guys, I don't know anything about 3D but I saw an artist use a 3D figure model for his artwork, and he could rotate any joint he wanted (I attached some pics so you get the idea), including fingers and so on. Do you know where I can get one? Preferably of a woman, thank guys

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!

Question
Hi! I'm interested in getting into sculpting soon and there's just one thing I'm curious about -- what do you guys do with your gesture studies? Is it possible to reuse the clay and armatures from your studies? This is probably a very obvious question but I honestly have no clue about any of this stuff so I'd really appreciate an answer!

Female figure sculpture competition
This was sculpted over 18 hours during the Figure Sculptors United competition that I co-founded in my home state of Utah USA. It was a 24 inch figure sculpted from a live model over three days. I love these types of competitions as it really pushes you to work at your best and it allows me to see how other professional sculptors work and how my work compares to theirs. I haven’t won the competition yet but I hope to one day! Check out the Proko Figure Sculpting Fundamentals if you’d like to learn figure sculpting! We’ll be releasing video lessons again weekly after the holidays.

Rotation Photos of Human Head
I want to practice sculpting heads, and I was hoping to find some good references of the same person from multiple angles. Do any of you have recommendations? Posespace seems to work okay, but seems geared more toward figurative work. I just wondered if there were some options that I was missing. In the past I have tried to use celebrities, since it is easy to find lots of photos of them, but something with all the photos gathered together, with photos from all angles would be great. Any thoughts? It seems to me that there could be room for a crowd-sourced collection of free artist reference here (especially if we are just looking at portraits, since people would be more willing to put up their face online than nudes), but I don't know of anything like this. If 20 sculptors took photos of three friends each, we would have a nice start to a collection.
