I always enjoined creating artwork. But recently I decided to become good at it. I started with the figure drawing and character design.

Here is my 2nd attempt. This time I tried the full figure. I used one of my 20 ga wire armatures but it was too clumsy and made things a little harder. One thing about the wire armature and full figure is I don’t know where to start. How to start building the elbow joint for example. I started with the pelvis and the rib cage but then I got lost pretty quickly. The other challenge was to make sure the sculpture is balanced otherwise it doesn’t stand on its own. Also, I didn’t use any tool for this sculpture. Not that I didn’t want to, I just didn’t know how/where to use it. I would appreciate any feedback.

I made these three using a 20 ga copper wire which I already had within my hands reach. They are about 12, 7 and 5 inches. The tallest one is too flimsy so I guess I’ll make more using 14ga aluminum once I get it.

Here are pics of my $5 challenge. I accidentally purchased Soft NSP Chavant. It was a little difficult since it softened so quickly, but still doable. Also used aluminum wire and foil. I also used a wooden knife from previous ceramic work I already owned.

This is so nice. Can you post a picture of the armature as well? I’m curious to see how it works.

Hi! Here's my first sculpture. It's very cheap: my hands, kid's clay for 1,59€, wire for 1€, an orphaned chopstick and some wood stick from an ice cream. The armature was not easy to make, I spent a lot of time thinking about how to start. In the end I made it too small 😂 The clay I used is hard but flexible. Easy to handle in small pieces. There was times I just wanted to punch the whole thing but I had a good time overall !

Nice! The pinch on one side and stretch on the other side shows the gestures very well.

I’m a total newbie but I think I could more or less capture the gesture. One of the hardest part was to make the creases like where the leg connects to the pelvis or where the rib cage pushes out the skin. Also I think my foil armature was too thick. I would appreciate your feedbacks.

I’m very new to painting and never heard of color hormone. It feels like a mystery is solved in front of me. Thank you for this class and I’m looking forward for the next sessions. I would also appreciate any feedback or comments.
