How I Work:
The process starts with a sketch. Then I work out the proportions on an armature map. This allows me to set the proportions for sculpture. From the armature map I layout the armature wire to distinguish length of the body, arms, legs and other important items. Then, I attach the aluminum armature wire to a wooden base and work in anatomy with NSP clay. It's an oil base that allows me to work for as long as I like without drying out.
Once the sculpture is finished, I disassemble the sculpture removing parts that will not cast as one piece. Arms, legs and heads are disconnected and cast separately.
Then, I create a rubber mold and cast the sculpture with a plastic resign, which I reassemble and smooth over with filler. After all the parts are put together, I paint.
What's New: Take a peak at my next sculpture project. It's a quick self-starter creature development piece. I'll update as I make progress. Take a peak.
