Redturtle Sketchbook
show user profile  Redturtle
Need to put more work out there, so I'm starting this sketchbook. I'm studying at a Traditional Art school in Philadelphia PA (US). I'm going to make an effort to put my stuff up here as I do it, even if its not amazing. Traditional sculpture is sort of slow process (for me) so keep that in mind, but I'll try and put anatomical studies up frequently. Anyway, here we go:
been working on this since Christmas break, though I havent touched it in 3 weeks. got a bit sick of it. this is a half scale copy of the ecorche behind it. mines about 34 inches tall head to toe. i'll put up better pictures on this
this is a portrait study of one of my teachers, i'd like to realize this to a photorealism level
digital painting of a skull, referenced an Italian anatomy book my teacher likes

Good stuff... is the top one done in clay? If so is it a particular type of clay that doesn't dry out?

Hey Thanks! Yeah the top one is in an oil based clay, the brand is Klean Klay. It's about $1.90 a pound. I've used water clay a lot but I'm falling in love with oil clay. They both have their benefits. I'm going to try and finish it within the next month or two and cast it in bronze by summer! I have 'Foundry' this semester, so I'll be doing a couple bronze pieces.

I made a wax copy of a plastic semi-relief type soldier guy. I've had this thing hanging up on my wall in my last 8 apartments. This isnt original artwork, but its cool so I figured you guys might be interested in the casting process. In the pictures below is the original plastic solider (faux iron/bronze surface), my plaster waste mold I made, and the cast wax positive I got from the plaster mold.

I'll post more images as I fix progress.

I also started another (smaller) écorché. You can tell my focus is greatly on human anatomy at the present, and the figure in general.

This the plastic relief I started with, next to the bronze I poured yesterday. I still have to sand blast the rest of the ceramic bits off, then weld fill in some small cracks, and i'm gonna polish it pretty hardcore to get a nice reflective surface. This is mainly an experimental piece.

This is my class doing the pour:

heres a sketch I did of MODOK:
