04 Modeling Nº 33
My working drawing shows the neck angled forwards slightly.
So I cut into the front of the neck on the figure, down to the collarbone. I also removed some clay from between the collarbone and the muscle behind it. Peter Rubino, in his book, Sculpting The Figure In Clay says that this low area on either side of the neck is a transitional area between the two high forms of the clavicle and trapezius muscle.
I used the wooden rake tool to blend in the cuts I made.
Later in the modeling process, I will add coils for neck muscles that go from the pit of the neck up towards the ears.
