Description

In this course you will learn how to model a human head:


  • Considerations about the differences between traits of a man and a woman

  • Make a simple and effective structure

  • Outline the main volumes

  • Carefully make all facial features, differentiating between women and men

  • Model the hair


Francesca guides you step by step with examples and clear demonstrations in the wonderful adventure of sculpture: this time, modeling a head. At the end of the class you will be able to model your only one man's or woman's head!


Francesca, Italian professional sculptor, makes a sculpture in front of the camera, explaining in detail everything she does and why, putting emphasis on all the stages that allow carrying out a sculptural project, the use of tools and different materials available. It begins with the use of appropriate photographic references, to then make a structure that governs the entire piece, to build the general volumes with lightweight and resistant materials. You will know the use of tools for sculptors, the use of solvents and much more.


Remember that you have a 30 day guarantee!
