CREATE 3 Thumbnails: 1 of each view. 2. After you do this, then based on the BEST pose CREATE 3 Full page sketches: 1 of each view. 3. All sketches that you do not complete in class areHOMEWORK Step 3:ARMATURE –FRAME(YES! The 1st step of sculpting a figure is the same as drawing the figure!!) 1. CREATE Frame with wire as demonstrated in class; don’t forget human proportions! Step 4:MUSCLE& BULK – FORM (YEP! Same 2nd step as drawing the figure even though we are sculpting!) 1. CREATE form with newspaper and masking tape; don’t forget all of the features that make us human beings! Head, neck, shoulders, torso, waist, hips, arms, ALL sculptures will be kept on back counter!
