Ecorche - Skull Refined

As Andy says: "Really nerd out on all the little details"! It was fun to spend the day doing all the tiny refinements that make the structure of the bones feel both delicate and strong. I was thinking, just like with painting, it's so important to notice the difference in edges - sharp versus rounded, and everything in between.

That looks awesome! So much detail in there, and those are tiny.

Don't you go trading in your brushes for chisels now Sadie!!

Beautiful job. It will be exciting to see what you do next.

Wow! That's really cool! It'll be great to have around the studio for reference. How big is it?

Mark, thanks! It's small, only about 3.5 inches high -it's part of a ecorche figure. And yes, I'm excited to have the finished figure to keep in the studio for reference! Muscles on 1/2, bones on the other.

Michael no worries, I much prefer painting and drawing to sculpting :)

Thanks, Sidarth!! Maybe I'll bring it to class near the end of the semester so you all can see it :)
