My sculpture/pottery teacher is a freaking genius. He had the class start with three, 7 inch torsos, moving on to a seated 1/7th posed figure, then to a 17 inch, half-size torso. Looking at these torsos, I see how useful doing the smaller sculptures first was. I especially see the progress I have made in rendering the shoulder area. In the first photo, the smaller one, her shoulders are too broad. They look as if they belong on an entirely different figure, some kind of body builder chick.
By the time I got to sculpting the bigger one, I was able to realize and learn from my mistakes to not repeat them again.
So I rented an awesome camera for a couple days to photograph art. I have to give it back today, but I made sure to take a ton of pictures before I do. Here are some of my classmates who are awesome.
