I was working on this and got a headache. Don’t know why. I think it was the amount of caffeine I had today.
I bought Artistic Anatomy by Dr. Paul Richer to review anatomy but the book has been stuck in transit for four days.
I drew a few arms, but am a bit lazy to post them at the moment. There is no AC at my home.
This took more time than expected. I think I started it back in January because I added notes and stuff. It’s okay looking (big gluteus maximus due to large iliac). It’s not perfect, but by the end of the road I was looking more towards the goal than the journey.
Just have to wait two days and paint over muscles with some mod podge, then paint the base black to cover the clay below.
On to new projects.
Oh, and the eBay skeleton that I bought, it came with half female and male pelvics so I couldn’t put them together. All in all I have two partially incomplete skeletons but still make for good reference material.
I am on part 10 of 11 vids.
Also still cleaning the skeleton I got from eBay.
The Goo Gone helped with the stickiness. It’s time for me to submerge the bones in bleach water. Just a bit of bleach and a good scrub.
The residue was still sticky so I’m leaving the bones in the tub overnight. Maybe that’ll help.
It’s a mess. Next time…it will be better.
Read up more on this clay…not good for small details at all. Not recommended.
Was trying to paint right hand and feet but colors didn’t come out right. Oh well, next time.
I will use polymer clay next time. This clay that I’m using keeps breaking because it’s a stiff and crumbling type clay (breaks on the spinal process and ribs). But I am finally finished with the scapula, just need to mold the skeletal hand before baking.
I’ve made more notes. I’ve decided to write with a blue pencil since I keep getting graphite on my hand. I’m almost out of General’s Colortex np blue pencil. Haven’t gone through Prismacolor’s np pencil yet.
I’ve made some notes as well. Need to draw more foot bones and pelvics. I’m trying to decide if I should volunteer to teach drawing if it helps me understand art terminologies.
