Lots of distractions today during my art time, but that was still less frustrating than trying to sculpt a pelvis.

Obviously I’m not a sculptor. I’ve maybe touched clay 5 times in my life and today it is really showing. Although I think it is going to be great training and will inform my 2D work more.

Essentially I’m accustomed to translating a three dimensional image to two dimensions but sculpting is completely opposite. I’m watching Rey and looking at books on anatomy trying desperately to turn a flat image into something real. It’s really taxing my brain.

Well, at least the drawing was fun today. I didn’t really have much of a gaol, I just picked images at random and started. I’m still struggling with the right amount of shading though. Also, I constantly have this tendency to make the body larger as I get further away from my starting point.

  1. And I am not a fitness instructor, but sometimes we take steps out of our comfort zone for a reason, and the benefits will improve our true nature even more.

I am an Artist and a programmer currently living in the amazing state of Washington. I have a passion for art, but I'm stubborn as hell with it. My day is complete only when I do some piece of art each day, no matter how small. "There was a dream that was Rome. You could only whisper it. Anything more than a whisper and it would vanish, it was so fragile."
