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!

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!

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.

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!

Raya and the Last Dragon
Practicing digital sculpting with Zbrush as I am fairly new to 3d art work. My goal would be to export the sculpt to Maya to do the fur texture when I am satisfied with the sculpt process.

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

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.

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?
