I totally envy you guys that can carve...how you can work an image out of a solid object is mystifying to me!!!

Well, does already having the supplies count?!? After all I did not buy anything for the challenge...Bought some monster clay a few years ago it's been sitting around ever since. Looking for excuse to try it out...

Looked at some you tube videos. Don't know what else I need to start. For the first lessonI guess I will also need wire cutters or Pliers to make an armature? How will I soften the clay? Torches, lighters, double boiler?hair dryer?What is recommended? What solvent is safest for a low circulation area? I Never made an armature or worked with oil based clay. I apologize I posted these questions elsewhere also. Thanks!!

Aaron what type of material are you planning to use because that will determine some answers to your other questions. For example, you will not want to use torches with polymer clays (that could be bad). To answer you solvent question, you'll likely want to circulate your area somehow whether it's opening a window, a fan to draw air out of the room, or something along those lines. However, in my experience it's too early to think about solvents because those are used in finishing techniques. Think you'll be working in to rough for awhile to get the basics down.

Thought I might chime in here, and post a few links to sites that have sculpting clays/waxes. https://www.sculpey.com; https://www.chavant.com; https://www.monstermakers.com; https://beesputty.com. Each material has different characteristics that, I'm sure, Mr. Keith will explain. I've used Sculpey, Chavant, Castilene (now owned by Chavant), and a product no longer made (dang it!) CX5 by adambeaneindustries. You can get tools all over the place, apart from what's mentioned...Amazon, Blick, Michaels, Hobby Lobby...Online https://www.sculpt.com; https://www.sculpturedepot.net are a couple of neat sites to shop. Shoot you can even look up on youtube on how to make your own tools!!! Hardware stores are good alternative to art store armature wire...you can get aluminum wire cheaper (quick search) Lowes has 39ft for $9. Oh one last thing, a trick for saving on material...get some aluminum foil. It can also help with weight issues.

Personally, I would like to see topics on movement. Twisting and turning etc.

Should be pretty proud of yourself....looks like you have the fundamentals down very well.

I'm in...looking forward to learning. Really interested in pushing the dynamics of the figure...you know twists and turns, and how that effects the musculature. Also, honing in on anatomy. Lastly, not sure how much you'll get into portraits, but I kind of live in (what Ryan Kingslien refers to as) that valley of the suck with regards to faces. Of course, may not focus in this series...but here's to the future!

Sculpted this in polymer clay, and painted it to look like a bronze.

Part of proko for awhile...New to 2.0. My interest, mostly, include figure sculpting, so excited to see what Andrew Keith will be teaching. My endeavors, however, have taken me into the world of Zbrush (less mess, makes wife happy). One of my biggest struggles is getting the twist of the body right. If any of y'all could help simplify that then I would be most gracious. Many thanks!
