I had some fun working with the subtle shades on this one. It makes the sculpture more realistic and also to avoid any visible patterning, I added the blue on the back in a very smoky spread effect. Turns out it can be wuite fun figuring out the color layout. Also it can very quickly send you in to experimentation a little too much and possibly ruin what you were doing XD12.01.2019
I'm really enjoying this one. Even with it's very simple pose he's still very much alive. sometimes less is more indeed :D
Building up the muscles slowly can very quickly get you to make a mistake and you have to predict where to start and how far to build up. mostly because you spend stearing at a certain shape for so long you get too used to it and don't see how it should be any more :O
Also as I mentioned before, paper clay is sooo messy to work with :O but regardless I find myself loving paper mache clay as much as I did all those years back.
