    World-renowned sculptor Johanna Schwaiger joins New Masters Academy, bringing with her over 20 years experience of teaching and producing figurative and portrait sculpture. In her first series, she demonstrates her method of sculpting a female portrait from a live model. You’ll learn important methods and procedures using various sculpting materials and tools, key landmarks of the skull, and basic clay application. Follow along with Johanna in this second lesson as she sculpts the eyes, ears, and mouth. She emphasizes checking the profile line of your sculpture often, keeping the width “under-built,” and checking for symmetry.

    Hi there, lovely course. Have worked through all the videos but would like to know why the course ends so abruptly at the end of part 7. The sculpture is not shown as complete and the eyes are unfinished by the end of the final video.
