This is what he sculpted the first day with super sculpey, taking his time to show us every step:
Me, trying to sculpt a head... so hard:
You know what's amazing? Simon can somehow make a tiny, perfect hand or skull with just a few magical squeezes.
Here's what he made in an hour and a half:
Unbelievable!!! What a valuable talent to have. If I could sculpt that fast I would model every single one of my characters.
I'm not going to show you my sculpture yet--since it's uh, it needs work, but I will show you how it looks in the passenger seat of my car... I drove home carefully:
I'm looking forward to practicing more. I think it's a valuable design tool. You get to test your design out on gravity--see if it's balanced.
Also, I noticed I was drawing better after sculpting--I think it's because sculpting forces you to accept a little chaos and be more flexible to change the design.
