    Join internationally acclaimed artist, David Simon, as he teaches you his approach to modeling a three-quarter life-size portrait in clay.

    You will learn how to build your armature, take measurements of your model, block-in the facial features, hair, and neck, and how to build relationships between them. David will also cover the materials and tools he uses, and demonstrate his finishing techniques.

    This course is a comprehensive representation of the sculpting process from a few blocks of clay, a pipe, and a wire, to a finished portrait. 

    In the second lesson, David lays in the sculpture’s profile in between the measuring nails. He starts to block in the facial features and gradually adds more visual information. By the end of this lesson, you should be able to roughly pull all the forms together.
