Hey because the holidays are so busy for the Proko team they’ve paused the editing but it will start up again in the new year! I have done some posts on my Patreon page in the meantime https://www.patreon.com/Andrewjosephkeith but that’s a separate thing where I do around 2 projects each month that show the full sculpting process so you can sculpt along.

My attempt at the $5 challenge and 1st attempt at sculpting a person. (70 minutes of work) I like how the left leg turned out. The three things I had the most trouble with were getting the right hip high enough like model in the reference photo, wrapping my head around the shape and position of the shoulders, and while I didn't focus on the abdomen near as much as the limbs it's worth mentioning I was a little avoidant of the area because I couldn't figure out how to roll the lower stomach into the upper torso without making the area too out of proportion.

Hey these are great! Yeah the torso and hip areas are a complex area because there is so much going on. I like that you did multiple studies and it looks like your capturing the pose well. Keep it up and I look forward to seeing more!

Andrew, I just received my Chavant clay. I was surprised by how hard it is. Apparently I need to soften a bit. Can you tell me the best way to go about preparing it use? Thanks

yes it's hard out of the block, I like to put it in the oven at a low temperature (like 130 degrees Fahrenheit) for a while to allow it to soften up. Once you start working it it becomes softer.

Again I'd say try to push the gesture, push it even further than the reference pose. that's a great exercise to start to see and apply gesture. Keep it up!

Ok Andrew, here are a couple of female torsos I have done from poses from posespace.com, I limited myself to 2 hours each starting with a tinfoil bean armature… feedback and advice on how to make them better greatly appreciated :)

Great job! I'd say to focus more on the gesture, yours is looking a little stiff. It also feels a little off balance. Keep it up! I look forward to seeing more!

Please submit gesture studies! I'm still looking for examples for the critique videos. There will be a little break in video lessons for the sculpture course as Proko is getting ready for the busy holidays but videos should start up again in January. This should give students a chance to catch up and submit assignments for critique videos. I look forward to seeing your work!

My first try was the same George Bridgman. I think the hips are too wide and he's a bit on the short side. I like this exercise.

great job! don't worry about the proportions too much during these but I would suggest trying to push the gesture a little farther.

Are the "Poses for Artists" (for $16.50) in the round? That is, can you turn the models 350 degrees? Alternately, is a pose photographed one shot by one shot in the round? Or are the poses all just one pose photographed from one direction? Thanks!

I believe those references are not in the round.

Somehow my measurements varied slightly…😂 but I got the 3 soldiers wound up… Now onto the gesture exercises!

nice! watch the hips so they're not too wide. those might be pushing it once the clay is added. Keep it up!

I chose some master sketches from the great Bill Watterson for my gesture studies; feedback appreciated

I chose a drawing from George Bridgemans Complete Guide To Drawing From Life, and made the sculpture in one sitting. It took me 1 hour and 30 minutes.

I tried to do this absolutely ridiculous pose based off a Loomis gesture. I think I probably could have pushed the gesture farther, but I didn't realize that until I had the photos in front of me. It was fun to try and figure out nonetheless.

Wow that’s a crazy pose! Yeah I have the same thing where I can’t see some of the mistakes until I take a picture or video and then I’m like “Is that what it looks like?”

Hi, Andrew. For the kneeling man I used a drawing from the Gottfried Bammes book Anatomy for Artists, and for the other two I used photo references. The left foot of the standing figure should be lifted a bit more, but I couldn't get it to stand properly for the photo. I call the trio "People in despair" :D. It took me a little over one hour for each figure.

Hey these are great! Exactly what the gesture studies should capture. In future lessons I will go more in depth on the shape of the primary forms of the head, rib cage, and pelvis which might be helpful but as far as what’s been covered these are looking great!

Ok here is my second sculpture for the $5 challenge - J Mac soft clay over a tinfoil bean using only hands and a butter knife - hoping this gets easier with tools… feedback appreciated :)

Hey looking great. Looks like you’ve got the primary forms pretty well established. I think this is good for a first sculpture, as you continue to work on other assignments start with these primary forms but keep it thin so that there is room to build on the secondary forms of the muscles on top. Keep it up!
