In this course you will learn how to do a realistic human head from start to finish with the international artist Alex Oliver. It's an incredible course for both beginners as well as for the more advanced, moving from building the base, blocking, primary forms until the completion of the entire model. I will show you the techniques I use when creating a solid base using a wooden base , an iron bar , polyurethane foam and aluminum foil. Also show you how to make initial volumes and from there begin to take the shape of a male head . Also I show my techniques detailing the model and finish . Along the course will be made available references used during the course and how-to guides ear , mouth, nose, eyes and the structure of the head.
In this video I show you step by step to make a blocking done well, that will structure and leave in place the rest of the carving process.
In this video we will see how to proceed with the secondary forms and set more objectively sculpture.
With secondary forms completed , we finally got the part of detail. In this video I will show my process to make more specific details, very carefully not to invent what does not exist in real life.
