Re: Forum

Its looking great especially the feet which are very well done. Not sure about the hair though. There is a tendency to try to sculpt in too much detail to try and replicate individual or small groups of hair but it never works with clay. ive looked into this alot myself as Ive been guilty of doing this. What Ive found on looking at hair on figurative sculptures is that it looks more realistic if you ignore trying to put in fine detail of the hair and just sculpt the general shape with a few deeper cuts to show any larger gaps in the overall hair shape, it then looks less mop like

something like this
