Sorry for the delay, Monday was a non-stop day! Please expect future days to be without posts as I get back into the swing of working with the high school students on the set, try to finish my parents odds and ends, and maybe, just maybe sculpt something to sell.
Short post today. The male has been detailed and is ready to cure. I have decreed today a sculpting in my jammies day so I will cure the Satyr then start the nymph.
All rough sculpting is finished, Now the details can be completed since I need not hold onto the body to add or shape anything.
Veins are added (note the forearm) by using a round-ended tool such as a stylus to press the skin to each side of the vein. The ridge of the vein is rounded over with your finger and the ridge beyond the vein will be blended back into the skin surface.
Muscles on the ribs are added. As the torso twists the skin of the abdomen will pull and show stress. Sometimes these are folds but in this case they are merely slight ridges and valleys.
Nipples are sculpted onto the pecs. The nipples are placed lower than a woman's on the chest.
The scrotum and penis are attached and some veining is sculpted into the lower abdomen and inside the thighs.
Hopefully we will have a cured piece to examine tomorrow. (If we are real lucky, it will crack and we can look at a repairing how to)
Have fun sculpting and have a great day!
