I'd REALLY love to learn to sculpt busts of characters from movies and games and just people in general but I have no idea where to start. Now I don't mean 'What sites can I buy clay at?' or ' Where can I buy a book on sculpting?" or even "I want to buy a sculpting video, where can I get one?"
I'm posting this knowing that quite a few people on this forum are extremely skilled in this craft and that many people here would be interested in a topic such as this, including myself.
While I don't know where to begin honestly I am hoping some of the forums more famous sculpting professionals might chime in and give us all a look into what it truely takes to sculpt a bust of someone, from start to finish. Type of clay. Different types of bases and forms to sculpt onto. Building up the basic shape of the head, proportions, adding the basic features, aligning everything properly, etc.
I know it's quite a bit to ask but this would be one heck of a fantastic topic if it got off the ground. Hopefully one day it will be archived and be a great resource to those asking similar questions in the future
I'm not trying to cut on this forum by saying this so please keep in mind no disrespect is meant, but I remember when this forum was a place that shared plenty of 'how to' info. It still is and to be honest I have had many help me with questions and see this forum as a great resource but I haven't seen something like a thread of this type for a very long time.
So what do you sculpting masters say? Give us a hand? We'll appreciate it
