This is the sculpting work on my latest doll, I thought some of you may enjoy seeing some work in progress pics
(please click the image for a full view)
With the arms I sculpted the muscle masses as strands of clay i attached to the armature, I built them up as the muscles of the arm would be layered, for reference i used photographs, Orthographic printouts of 3-d digital human scans and a very detailed ecorche model by Andrew Cawrse
In the second pic, Once the masses are bult up i would then blend them and begin refining
In the last pic, The last stage of the sculpting is to add are any surface and subsurface anatomy, like skin wrinkling prominent tendons and veins, the arms are then baked and sanded.
The finished arms as well as the legs I built as one piece then later i will cast in resin and joint to make my master.
