I notice the way you are holding the round brush as if you are writing chinese calligraphy. Is this normal holding style or your own style? Thanks.

Since we know the length from the neck to the knuckle is 5 inches, instead of bending each joint, we can measure once and rewire back in. I understand we need to compensate the movement of each joint but we can add 5 and 3/8 inches to the length of the wire. I notice I have been fighting with wire when at the joint and taking much time. Working a large new coil of wire is no fun, I decided to cut off an excess of wire at the final run off the shoulder and knuckle. I just rewire the excess black to the neck. I'm having problem uploading my iPhone photo format .HEIC, this web site doesn't take the new format and I hope Proko will update soon! Thank you.

If you already have gouache, I recommend you do some black and white photo studies instead of using colour (it's so tiring to get colour mixed right...), then you can grasp the value relationship pretty quickly, which is a heavy lifting element in a painting. I'm not against going directly into digital, but digital brush and display will tend to lead you to not discover the real luminance range of an image, because a screen it's emissive, and somehow doesn't really put context lighting into your vision. If you go digital directly, I recommend that you paint some pure white and pure black squares in corners of your image, then you will always have a reference of the luminance range you can go.

I always see a lot of great artists started out in traditional then to digital, their works stand part other! But again finding the right traditional paint teacher can be a challenging! You seem any good teacher?

Hey everyone, I'm doing the figure sculpting class to hopefully improve my drawing with a better understanding of form. It's a lot of fun so far, even though it feels like I'll have clay under my fingernails for the rest of eternity. I had already bought monster clay before the 5$ challenge was posted, but aside from that I only used aluminum foil and paperclips.

The texture feels like marble, nicely done! I have the hard monster clay, found it a bit hard to work on!

Here is a face that I based, especially in the early stages, on Jesse. I began with the profile, and I tried to really get Jesse's basic profile. After I had that, I tried to work without the photo reference as much, exploring the shape of the face and the features in ways that I thought was interesting. I probably would have learned more by being more faithful to the references the whole time, but I enjoyed working in something of a hybrid way. Is this a bad way to use reference materials, in this sort of hybrid way? I didn't used an armature for this--it is solid clay. I used a cheap clay that comes in multi-colored bars, which I kneaded together. The clay was a little over $2 a pound, but I used less than half of that. (I gave some thoughts on the clay in another post in this thread for a torso I did, so I won't repeat that here.) For tools, I used a paperclip, which I mangled a little bit so that I had loops of slightly different sizes and shapes. I also used a tooth pick. I broke it in half by accident, half way through sculpting, but then realized that the broken off end has its uses as well.

Nicely done, it is tricky when the medium is soft, I always deformed it when holding in my hand!

My first entry from tradition sculpture to 3D was tricky that I couldn’t see the form of reality but after practicing and my brain can see it now in 3D form. I gained a lot after sculpture and my 3D were most improved. Best of luck.

Funny my 20 years old wire stand I made but never get to finish, so using an old stand, foil and a 2 inches wooden shim from picture framing. Here is the head and upper body study.

Hi Tim, nice work. Just curious when you took Steve’s course did it have the tutorial videos or this is alive class? Looks like someone I can learn from too!

I’m using my old armature stand that was already build, can I use it or I need the under $5 foil to build into. I’m using whatever household items I can use to sculpture with that is not even a dollar, lol
