Wire Armaures
1yr
Andrew Joseph Keith
Hey if you have any issues with building wire armatures let me know! If you have other methods for building wire armatures for sculpture I’d love to see them too! Post images of issues or other methods for building the armature. Just keep sculpting!

This should be taught in schools because it’s fun to make and it helps us to build finger calluses like guitarist. Which is cool. The only difference is, our hurt more🤣(🥲) Jokes aside, this loop thingy is very cool. It gives us more flexibility to change the basic posture and build of the sculpture. About the armature. Unlike last time, I have kept the hip unit a little less than one unit. I see the problem in my previous armatures now. But can I use them for future studies anyways, by bending them downwards or something? Please tell if the proportion on this one is ok? It might look off at the head because I cut the wire too soon.

Hey these look a lot better! And yes you can make the hips less wide by bending them downward or upward but just be aware that this will change the proportions between the legs and the torso. Keep up the great work! And I agree it would have been fun to learn this in school!

I did ones at 6, 9, and 12 inches. I imagine the 6 inch one would have been easier with a thinner wire, but I only have this. I used the sharpie to mark the wire with the measurements, and that helped a lot while figuring out the process.

Took longer than expected and my thumb hurts a bit from the twisting. but they seem promising to me, i guess i'll make some even smaller just to play around with the clay

My wire finally showed up so here are my 3 armatures. I should have listened more to the measure constantly advice, because somehow after it was done I found the middle sized guy has one leg too short! Not sure what happened there, but need to practice more. Had not done anything like this before and it was fun.

Hey looks great! Yeah the hips might be a little too wide too but other than that they look good! Keep it up!

Did my 3 wire armatures. I tried 1st one while watching the lesson and forgot to make the left leg :P So, I had to add left leg separately. 2nd armature is 1 inch per unit and 3rd armature is 1cm per unit. I just created the armature with exact ratio mentioned but didn't give any posture to them. Please suggest me, if that needs to be done as well.

Hey looking great! The proportions look good, make sure the hips aren’t too wide though because we’ll still be adding clay to them! Better for the hips to be too narrow than too wide. Keep it up!

green garden wire helps clay stick better

Nice! Looks great! I’m liking the block in of the rib cage and pelvis as well. Keep it up!

Just watched this, and, yeah, it's much simpler than approaches I've used. Gonna give this a try.

i used Dr. Garuda method on my sculpture it’s pretty unique but I wouldn’t recommend it, yours is more productive
