Sculpting class:The Character Head with Bill Nelson

I take a class from Bill Nelson on making character heads. Wonderful to see his works and drawings. He is so different from me!... but it inspired me to try to do something my own style…so this is the head I’ve sculpted….no colors or hairs for the moment...

For the first time I used Super Sculpey. It's a little different from Prosculpt: the color, the texture and the clay is matt. It's s big head! about 7 inches tall.

That head is wonderful! I'm amazed at the eyes, also.

Thanks for sharing your photos, Stef.
