I fiiiiinally finished my Dishonored whale sculpt! This poor thing has been sitting unbaked and neglected on my mantelpiece for actual months now, and I finally had the time and energy to work on it. I might still do a little touching up. I also need a proper stand for this guy eventually.

This thing was absolutely riddled with problems from start to finish, not the least of which being the fact that I’m out of practice with sculpture because of how rarely I do it. So I’m not 100% happy with this. I still like it though!

Process shots here!

anonymous asked:

what books do you recommend for sculpting?

Well, that rather depends on what sort of sculpting you want to do. Some books I have personally found useful in my learning, however:

ANATOMY

THE MASTERS

METHOD

Really though, don’t take my word for it, go visit your local library physically and get to know the Art & Architecture section for yourself, you’re far better off that way than relying on me or the Internet. My sculpture education has been so informal and piecemeal that I don’t have a good resource base to draw from– only my limited, hands-on experience. But there are SO MANY books on anatomy and sculpture and how to sculpt, and all these wonderful obscure ancient ones that don’t even show up online. Go visit your library if you can, I guarantee you’ll come away with something useful that you didn’t even think to Google. I’ve discovered many, many sculptors that way.
