Course Description

Class Format: PDF & Videos Downloadable

Welcome to the second chapter in my Sculpting Studies Video Series. In this 4 day workshop we will be focusing on body proportion and sculpting hands, feet and shoes. 

The videos are shot from overhead so you can see my techniques and how the sculpting progresses . . . and I give you loads of tips and tricks to get the realism and details you want to improve your sculpting techniques.
This workshop is a great continuation of last year’s Sculpting Studies of the face and a precursor to the final chapter next year for costuming.
As a student you’ll also have access to our Facebook forum page where I’ll show you the completed examples we work on in the lessons.
I hope you join me in my new Sculpting Studies workshop and I look forward to seeing your work in the forum.
