Hey all, Studying sculpture has been a fascinating experience for me, and I try to take it lightly. Coming from the digital sculpture in Zbrush, working with clay helps me visualize shapes better. Unfortunately, I had difficulty handling the aluminum wire, but I believe it was due to a lack of practice. To determine what would perform best, I tested different manufacturers and thicknesses. In the first exercise, I worked with three different sizes, and I hope to achieve better quality in the future.

shoulders and hips look to be too wide. You might double check the measurements to see if they are right. these seem to remind me of kids proportions. Keep it up! you might go larger on the size of the cranial unit if the wire is giving you a hard time.

Hi Andrew, I'm just starting into sculpture, quite excited to see where it goes! Heres my first armature, made with old thin tie wire I had already (I've ordered some proper stuff) with the pose from a photo I found online. Used 1cm as the cranial unit, so it's quite small, but I like working small :)

Andrew is a great teacher. I'm following both the Figure Sculpting Fundamentals and the Portrait Sculpting premium courses. It helped me a lot with understanding the basic forms of the human figure, gesture and how to sculpt difficult areas. I fell in love with traditional sculpting, so I'm looking forward to finishing both courses and see where it takes me. As a 3D artist learning to become character artist, I absolutely recommend Andrew's courses.

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!

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.

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

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 :)

Hey these are not bad at all! great job! I think you can continue to develop these. continue to focus primarily on the silhouette. the anatomy is always tricky but so far it looks like you've done a good job of focusing on the primary forms first! Keep it up!

You might double check the side view silhouette. it looks like it might need for the chin to be brought down a bit and the forehead might need to be a little higher as well. remember the eyes are about in the center of the head when looking at someone straight on. Keep going! good job!

The content and format of Andrew's Portrait Sculpting course has been a really great way to break down a complex subject. It's made me feel a lot more confident in approaching the portrait, and shown me new ways to tackle areas that I've previously struggled with. Getting feedback from Andrew himself has been really beneficial - highlighting those areas for improvement that I hadn't noticed. Very happy with the premium course content, and I look forward to progressing with it!

The lessons in figurative sculpting fundementals, both the free lessons and the premium, has been a watershed experience. I can finally sculpt in a way that I have wanted for decades. Learning how to make armature, and the armature stand was crucial. The library of models in posespace likewise. Would also have liked real and not only digital courses :) But it is really useful to get critique online, based on pictures. Thank you for making this possible, Andrew and Proko!!

Hi Andrew. I have sculpted a pretty nice life size arm in oil based clay, and I want to cast it into something that is durable for my outdoor sculpture garden. What material should I use for the mold, and the sculpture. Plaster won't hold up outdoors, right?...should I use some kind of resin? I don't think that concrete casting stuff could get fine detail. I am assuming you can't take a plaster cast of an oil based clay sculpture, have to use polyurethane? or Silicone? I watched zoe dufours course, but that is water based clay and a plaster waste mold.

yes I usually use some type of silicone for mold making and then plaster for the mother mold. you might check out the YouTube channel "Brick in the Yard" mold supply. they have many videos showing the mold making process and options for materials. I'll be doing some lessons on cheap mold making techniques but those might not come out for a little bit.

If you've benefitted from the Figure Sculpting Fundamentals course or the Portrait Sculpting course I'd love to hear about it! I'm looking for student reviews on the course to use in future marketing. Even if you've only been able to learn from the free lessons and would like to leave a review it would be greatly appreciated!
