Designing Your Sculpture– ReImagine Yourself
1 hours – Due Monday, Jan 11
Decision #1 – the CONCEPT: You are not just sculpting a replica of the head, but rather you are sculpting a work of Art. Your sculpture will need to say something, tell a story, design the head AS something.
Imagine yourself as….. older, as royalty, as a superhero, as a historic figure, as an elf, as magical, as a rocket scientist. Imagine if there were objects on or parts of the head were other things that contributed to the concept of this head.
Decision #2 – the POSE: How will the head be posed? How is your head positioned? Do you want an ordinary, front on pose, or would it make a more dramatic sculpture to have it tilted, turned or a dramatic expression?
Maybe you want to be wearing something:
Decision #3 – the BASE: What will the base of the sculpture be? You DEFINITELY have to have the neck in your sculpture. Will it just end? Will it end at a collar or necklace?
Take several selfie photos of your head in a mirror in 4 different positions. OR Get someone to help you so that your photos are clear and accurate:
ALL 4 MUST BE OF THE SAME POSE!
Your photos will help you a lot with sketching and with sculpting.
