First time ever leaving the country & I got to spend day one with Bernini πŸ€·πŸ»β€β™€οΈ
Still very unsure of a base but here's a shot of the finished form!!
It's important to take the time to look back on old work. I don't think much ever really changes, I think each piece just develops into a more mature sense of the same work. I think sometimes artists feel pressured to change who they are and produce "work that sells", to which I empathize with of course. But I also don't want to forget about the fucked up kid I was to make these in high school, and I sure as hell don't want to stray too far from it. Your experiences and interpretations are what separates your work from others. It's a wonderful thing! So just a friendly reminder to stay weird ✨ (or totally disregard me having an emotional rant on social media that works too)
A little late but I finally picked up my Anatomical Drawing final πŸ€— 8 hours of drawing & labeling the figure entirely from memory! Not quite perfect but still truly insane to see how much anatomy I've absorbed throughout my first year here
All I can think about is finishing this piece so here's a progress shot :-)
Testing out some new methods!! Not really sure how I'm feeling about it but it's still exciting to play 🐷 Casted wax figure from a clay model
I haven't been posting due to moving in & out of quite a few spaces. Now I'm finally settled & am very excited to be working on some new things! πŸ’
Shout out to my lady sculptors who can lift things up & put them down πŸ’…πŸ»
A couple of weeks ago I got to get my hands on the collection in the @nyamnyc 's library! These photos taken from the Albinus, Cowper, & Gamelin books simply couldn't capture how stunning they were in person! Thanks to @danthompsonart for giving our class this opportunity - truly, a wonderful experience
