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!

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

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!

Gesture studies
Hey here’s a look at a gesture study that I filmed for the VisionX live conference that’s available to watch on the Proko 3D YouTube channel. There will be some gesture study assignments coming up but that video should be able to get you started if you’d like to do some now! Focus on capturing the gesture and motion of the pose without worrying about the details too much.

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.

Some people have asked about getting sculpture references of things like the facial features or torso sculptures so I decided to make that happen with this Kickstarter project!

If you’d like to get some of these sculptures and support the project here’s the link. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/pentamantis/adam-and-eve-sculptures-to-inspire?ref=user_menu Discount early bird prices for the first items sold so act soon if you’d like to take advantage of that!

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. (Access to video demos at $10/month) https://www.patreon.com/Andrewjosephkeith
