Find or make a few study boards, and start practicing! You can use it to focus on practicing difficult subjects, make a bas relief of anatomy tracings, or any of the uses outlined in the lesson.
I found it difficult to work with the left leg and arm because of the foreshortening.
Study Boards Assignment/Notes Board 1: Direct clay onto board. This one got pretty funky, and I pulled the ripcord and bailed on it. Either it was because this was my first attempt, applying the clay and having the proportions grow, or some combination of both that created the perfect storm. All good. First Steps. Board 2 : Laying down Clay First This was great because it was more familiar to figure drawing and allowed me to really figure out the proportions of the figure before carving away and adding clay. I think these boards are probably a bit small. I may need to work larger so I don't feel cramped. Board 3 : David's Lips I picked up a set of cast facial features of David, and started with the lips. It's decent, but I kinda rushed it and ignored doing some direct measuring. Just eyeballed it. Overall: I definitely approached these as sketchbook pieces, and made enough panels that I have a bunch on hand when needed. I definitely see the benefit of having them to help work through some skill building without getting too precious
