Snow Woman Sculpture

By
Meanwhile in Wisconsin…

This is snow woman I made outside today. Shortly after taking photos of the final product I went to work only to come back home to discover her head had fallen off. I’m still very proud of her though. She is the first full sculpture I’ve ever done. Not too bad for my first time and no reference. My life drawing teachers would be proud.

I know the anatomy is off (hands are small and wonky lookin' and her head is big) but comments and critiques always welcome.

-Carli

P.S. I had pants on when I sculpted her.

this reminds me of those monks who drew things in sand and then the sand would be like washed away for some reason...

Your sculpting skills are pretty impressive (I'm still in awe of the pumpkins you made). Ever tried one of those fancy 3D programs like zbrush, 3D max, etc.? I think you'd have a lot of fun with that.

ah man, that would be so cool. I don't know the first thing about 3d character design, but It's never too late, eh?

Looks like you have an excellent ability to pick up new mediums fast. 3D Design has a steep leaning curve & can be highly technical and time consuming, especially with the hardcore programs like 3DS MAX & Z Brush. There are lighter weight programs like Poser or DAZ Studio (free) that allow you to focus more on the artistic end and get started faster. You can also mix pre-made content with custom work to save time.

I've been into 3D design nearly 2 decades and have studied it full time the past couple years. If your interested in learning more and have any questions just let me know.

I'm sure you'd pick it up in no time.
