04 Modeling Nº 24
I draw some lines on the upper torso in order to define where the breasts are going to be. This is the same way that Peter Rubino does it in his book, Sculpting The Figure In Clay, and it is the way that I did it when I was making the small torso sketch awhile back. In this case I used my working drawing to locate the pit of the neck, and found where the nipples are supposed to be located, using a pair of calipers. I measured from the vertical center line and from the pit of the neck. Click on any image to enlarge it.
I use my paring knife to draw the lines in the clay.
I cut out the small triangle with my paring knife.
This is a three-quarter view.
I add some pieces of clay to the top of the breasts, then blend them with the rake tool.
This is a three-quarter view of the breasts, after using the rake tool.
Finally, this is a shot of the figure with an inch tape measure next to her, and the front view of the working drawing in the background. This oil-clay figure is 27.5 inches tall (70cm).
