sculpting

Posted in Custom Workstation

Hi guys.
Can someone please tell me how to sculpt faces and guns. I could really use some help. Please either tell me here or post a tutorial.

Katherine Dewey published a good, step-by-step book on sculpting human anatomy with polymer clays (Super Sculpey, Fimo, etc.) that I read recently and would recommend for aspiring sculptors. Nothing in it on making guns though.

I tend to have a practice with blu tac first, it's a bit different but is easily removable and may give you an idea.

there is a head sculpting tutorial or two on Fwoosh in the tips/tricks section.

EDIT: Here are three head sculpting tutorials and some other helpful things:

think of it as a camera that slowly comes into focus. Just start with a rough shape, then slowly refine it bit by bit. Mark Alfrey doesn some good video tutorials, should check him out.

My problem with it is I just don't know how to even start sculpting faces. I can sculpt other things but I don't under stand how to do faces.

yeah, there are tutorials around but I find that those don't really help. The thing that made me improve the most was to just print some good reference pics of whatever you want to sculpt and just have at it! Take your time and don't get frusturated.

The only tools I use to sculpt are my fingers, an exacto knife, a paperclip, and a curved metal tool.

Everything comes with time. Practice practice practice.
