Here are some photos of my very first maquette! It was a lot of fun to do.. probably the most fun I've had all semester. Super Sculpey is nice to work with, though it does get really soft after a while if your hands are kinda hot, so doing thin areas like the eyes were pretty challenging.

I know in the last post I said that I needed to go to workshops.. but it's been hard for me to find time or energy for them with all the homework I've been given every week. Hopefully I can go to some during summer. In the meantime, here are some quick 2 minute drawings that I did in class. They're all the same model, but the goal was to characterize and exaggerate proportions and stuff. The model we had that day was really great - he really got into character and did some nice dynamic poses that were a lot of fun to draw. I've never seen him model in any of my other classes before, but hopefully he'll be back some time.
