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 :)

Accentuated the gesture and put in more secondary features, what do you think?

Thanks Andrew! With an armature stand tied to a finished sculpture, how it is detatched? We never see the armature stands in finished exposed works.

I believe it is cut off with bolt cutters before the piece gets molded to be cast in bronze etc.

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

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

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.

I’m totally new to sculpture, but these look great to me, the gestures look very accurate and believable, I like how you chose a theme and did three examples within that category - great job and thanks for posting your work!

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 :)

Hi Andrew, just joined the course have been enjoying the videos and trying to catch up with the assignments… this is my first sculpture ever as the “$5 challenge” j-Mac soft clay over a tinfoil bean using just my hands and a toothpick from the “Eva” photos. Excited about the course and look forward to your feedback
