Sculpture Final by JessicaDru Sculpture Final by JessicaDru
It's done!
Well, as done as it'll get. I enjoy the rough texture of tooled clay.

I need your help, of the three back-side images, I can't decide which angle I like best, gimme your opinion. I'd like to submit my sculpture for a best of term competition my school is having and need a front back and detail shot to give them.

Clay: Medium non-sulfur plasticine
Class: Character Maquette

I saw that you did this one quite a long time ago, still I wanted to write a critique as you requested it.

It is obvious that you have a good knowledge of proportions, especially the face is very well done. The woman's arms are very thin at the shoulders, but not too thin. It is interesting that you highlighted the muscles on the upper parts of the arms because in comparison to that, the muscles on her thighs are rather weak. The woman makes the impression of being a well trained dancer, skinny and thewy at the same time. The pose fits excellently and so does the mask.

There are only little and few things which could have been done even better: First is the neck which is a bit too long. Going down, her breasts are next, which could have been closer too each other. The space between them seems a little too big. Last, the belly button should be a little bit lower, closer to the hips.
It could have been interesting if you had colored the mask to set an additional highlight.

Still, a very good piece! Worth mentioning is your personal style of scultping. Your work on the sculpture remains visible in the surface which is not absolutely smooth. This gives the woman a unique character which is very important as there is no clothing that could do that.

Summary: Very well crafted and creatively designed with only few things to improve.

This is cool! I always wanted to do clay sculptures, but never really had the time to learn. I have some polymer clay, but i haven't time to do the real deal yet. I have been doing wood sculptures and such. Do you have a way to process the your finish product on how to mold your figure sculpture?

I am pretty crappy at making molds. so i haven't made any.

tho i plan to sculpt a friend from work, and then have him cast the mold of the sculpture. will be a cool experiment

It took some time. I did this sculpture for a class, so we were required to do a different part of the anatomy each week. it was a 10 week long class :)

I would use the photograph on the right. Just a glimpse of face is there and the human eye is naturally drawn to the face and will grab attention that way. Kind of a manipulating way of thinking but as I looked at the three pictures, that was what drew me to the one picture ultimately.

Very cool perspective. You know, when other people take pics of the statue, they aim for the face as well. i think you definitely know what works!

Excuse my ignorance, Im very new with the topic of sculptures, but the pipe in her waist will be there forever?
Reply
:iconjessicadru:
JessicaDru Featured By Owner Sep 18, 2010  Professional Digital Artist
i can un-screw the pipe and fill the area in. i would do that if i were going to have her cast in bronze. but since she's gonna be clay forever, i'll just keep it in so she can remain standing

absolutely beautiful! i love it! if you don't mind me asking a couple of questions...

I read roughly in your comments that it takes about 9weeks from start-finish..

what is the final sculpture size ?
how much money was spent ?
would you ever sell it ? and if so how much?
is it outdoor proof? Rain/Sun

i really like it, it's very original and human like, it captures life, emotions and movement.

:iconjessicadru:
JessicaDru Featured By Owner Aug 26, 2009  Professional Digital Artist
Money? about $100ish. maybe more, but it's been ages since i worked on this. she's about 24inches tall. i love working in 1/4 and 1/3 life size.
the material is just a sulfur free plasteline clay. i need to have her cast before she's good for anything but a work in progress.

selling it? i don't know. she isn't in a transportable, or even presentable condition atm.
