Animal Portaiture: Sculpting Solid on an Armature

with Shelsea Dodd
Virtual One-Part Demonstration Workshop using the Zoom Platform
 
October 24th, 2021 | 1:00-3:00 p.m. ET 
 
In this workshop, participants will discover the challenges and advantages of building solid on an armature, a versatile technique ideal for sculpting animals, human figures, and other complex forms.  Using the animal portrait as our focus, we will delve into how to plan and build a pipe armature and mass in a sculpture while paying attention to gesture and proportion.  We will then discuss how to cut apart the piece, hollow it out, put it back together, and add finishing details such as fur texture, facial features, and decorative ornamentation.  We will cover sculpting accurate facial anatomy and explore how to use facial features to create compelling and expressive animals.  We will also touch on clay, tools, and firing techniques.
