I NEED YOUR BAD SCULPTURES!
3mo
Andrew Joseph Keith
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!

Here is my first ever sculpture, and I think it's very well suited to point out common beginner mistakes :D

Here is the first bust I attempted when I discovered sculpture. I sent this to you via IG when I was working on it. You were very supportive and helpful. I am still thankful for that. Excited about the new Proko courses! Good luck.

And also here are two following ones. The male one is the most recent one and hasn’t been finished yet. (Seems like I can’t change the sequence of the pictures on phone) Any advices are more than welcome!

Hello this is my very first one. I think it is a bit too rough to provide any typical mistakes..

I can't say this was my worst project, but it was early on in the learning process. Unfortunately, I wasn't smart enough to photograph my first piece (which was worst than this...big head, wrong proportions, no anatomy) And, This was back when we were still processing film, so I was a cheap skate ;) I will say that there is something very humbling about photo documenting...Just when you think it looks good-take a picture (it sucks after that). Nonetheless, this was not one I was very fond of and is good candidate for pointing out errors.

Yes I also have a hard time presenting the work the right way in the photo. They seem to be much more out of shape than the work really is lol

Here you go Andrew! I doubt this was my first sculpture ever, but this picture was taken nearly 30 years ago (notice the very modern phone to the left!). So it's among my firsts as it's pretty old!

Interesting that, even with the rough spots, he still has a lot of character.

Well, not horrible, but plenty of things which, looking back, I can see are some classic mistakes. These are from when I had just started getting serious about figurative sculpture, ten years ago. A note about the figure with the lantern -- her bottom half is actually a lighthouse on the tip of a rock outcrop. "A Light in the Storm"

OK Andrew, you asked for it! The first sculpture Of the first sculpture course that I took as an adult was 2 years ago. It was human portrait sculpting in water based clay. It was the only weekend I had off so I took the course even though it was way above my skill set of nothing in figurative sculpture . I had a little memory of human proportions as it had been years since I did any visual arts at all, even drawing. The textures are terrible the proportions are off, The cranialfacial structure is abnormal, And the ear looks like an old boxer’s!! The neck is collapsed. From the front view, my otherwise normal looking 20 something model looks like an older “Data”from Star Trek ' if I remember correctly! There are some good aspects and it was a great learning experience!. It looked nothing like a model at all. It was vaguely humanoid and that was an accomplishment for me at the time.

😄In this class, I will be making a stitch in time for my first sculpture. This is how far I have gotten so far. It's looking pretty interesting...😂
