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!
Hello, here is my next one ready for comments and critiques. Reference is Felicia 004 from posesspace.com. Thank you
I would just bring her left leg in closer or even directly under her center of balance. It would be a little more dynamic that and it shouldn’t be that hard to do. Just my suggestion.
Hello, another study ready for your comments and critiques. Reference is dawnmarie 020 from posespace.com All responces are appreciated.
Hello, this is my first try. Reference is jenni 026 from posespace.com Any comments and critiques are welcomed.
I think the pose has more tension in it, but I really like the more relaxed pose you sculpted, nice job ! :)

My first (man) and second (woman) ones. I originally thought the first one was a disaster. But when comparing them, I found the second one could be even worse… I think I really need to learn anatomy now :)
This was my attempt to sculpt The Predator. I guess I wanted to compare it with the Zbrush model that I'm doing, or It's just unintentional photo bomb, I can't remember haha.
Here is my first ever sculpture, and I think it's very well suited to point out common beginner mistakes :D
My first sculptures I have ever done.

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..
Hello, the sitting figure is my first and the lying down figure is my second attempt at sculpting a figure.
I actually really like the back arch of your lying down 2nd photo.

they are all the ones I have done.
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"

Help me out! Post bad sculptures!
😄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...😂
