Class with Kathryn Walmsley
I just spent a two day intensive class with NIADA artist Kathryn Walmsley taking her full body sculpt class. The goal was to have a little character sculpted and painted ready for dressing. Most everyone made it to the hair stage. I on the other hand had to put the hair on today. Anyway, here is my little guy. He is a brownie named Xe. He has shorts and a little mohawk style hair cut. His body is sculpted out of Super Sculpey polymer clay over a wire body armature. He is then detailed with soft pastels and acrylic paint. He is only about 8 inches tall and so was a big challenge for my visual limitations. Not impossible thanks to such a great teacher. If you ever get a chance to take a class with her please do. You can see her work here.
That's it for today. Hope you all have a great week ahead.
