Short update: 

Past week I did a study on Scandinavian style troll. A lot inspired by John Bauer and Paul Bonner drawings. Big nose stuff basically. I hope I can get more time to do stuff like this. 


Clay Sculpting Seminar in Toyama by Hiroshi Katagiri

General / 05 March 2020

What a weekend I had last week. I feel anew and very thankful to @hiroshi_katagiri_insta our teacher with over two decades working in Hollywood, he runs sculpting seminars all around Japan. This time I joined his quick sculpt seminar in Toyama. Many thanks to the people I met there, it was a great combined experience of challenge and joy. Toyama is famous for Japan’s most delicious fish and their Japanese Sake was superb. Never had anything good as that before. 

I want to share photos of my sculpt that I did during the seminar. 4 male and 4 female head sculpts in 2 days and sculpt of choice at the last day. It was a real challenge to get it shape and right proportions right. Time ranges from 45 minutes to 1 and half hour. Kept repeating that and having demonstrations in between by Hiroshi. Finally the last sculpt I did was a free of choice so I picked Darth Maul. This one we had about 6 to 7 hours to do. Still didn’t manage to bring it to the end but still it was so a great learning experience!
