Sooo I’ve been messing around with some clay and this is what I’ve gotten so far… His head shape is still being tweaked and he doesn’t have ears either… I just wanted to share him!
Please feel free to critique him! I am not soft hearted either so you can be harsh LOL
I’m actually quite pleased with this little smiley guy!
(Please ignore the black lip I accidentally got red powder on him)
Aw he’s cute! His left (my right) eyelid looks pretty good but the right one doesn’t match. If you look in a mirror you’ll be able to see it more clearly. That’s a good practice, to look in a mirror periodically while you’re sculpting. You’ll pick up the little flaws easier.
Yes, mirrors are your best friend! Also photographing the baby and looking at it upside down can help you see where any proportions might be off. What I see is that your nostril shape is not quite right. Look carefully at how a nose is actually constructed because they are quite complicated and each one is very individual. You are off to a great start though. Sculpting is HARD. I hope to get to mine a bit later this year. I never did last year but my intentions were good.
I think he is adorable!! On his right eye (or as you’re looking at him the left) there is a natural indent where the nose meets the corner of the eye, but I didn’t see one on his left eye (or as you’re looking at him the right). Do you ever think about selling your clay sculpts? (After they’ve hardened of course)
