I love what I do, I have the best job in the world. So I'm being proactive and taking a vacation from sculpting anything for at least a month. I have a single custom order to finish in the next few days and then I'm putting away the clay and focusing on drawing, painting, and art education for a full month. Once the month is over I'm going to work on figural non-cephalopod sculpture for another month.
already up on Etsy in the brand new Paintings and Prints section.
My current project of the last few days is to work on copying Bargue plates which is a traditional drawing exercise. If you want to learn more about Bargue plates I suggest reading this great thread on ConceptArt.
I'm not doing these with quite as precise a method as described because
part of what I am doing is an exercise in learning to judge relative
distances without laying any measurement devise down directly on the
plate I'm copying from. If you are interested in downloading the plates
to work from go here.
