The sculptor population has increased here at Wetcanvas lately and there seems to be a wide variety of talent and skills. Maybe some of you would be interested in submiting a tutorial in the online school. This is the address if you want to learn more about it. http://www.wetcanvas.com/MediaKit/submissions_guide.html
I think this could draw even more sculptors to the site.

I've been considering doing this sort of walkthrough for a bug sculpture. I really need to borrow a digital camera to do that well, though...

Thanks for pointing out the link though!

Hi Roxanne and Pixelscapes,
Thanks for replying. The tutorial doesn't have to show a complete project, just some info that someone else may be able to use. Like what tools do you use carving stone as opposed to carving wood, how did you make that tech fossil, how to use winterstone or wire mesh, how to make an armature etc...
I did one with a 35mm camera and skanner and it wasn't a problem. I took pictures as I saw fit and when I got them back from the developers, I skanned in the ones I thought were most informative and wrote something about the process I did. If anyone wants some help doing one, I'm willing.

The best way for me has been a demo software that came with my computer called Front Page Express. It's a "what you see is what you get" instead of html program. It does all the html programming for you. If you have a Windows system there is a good chance you have this demo on your computer. It's pretty easy to use, but also limited because it's a demo.
I looked at the template and I didn't want to use it either.
I'm not sure if they will accept a format other than html, but you can ask.

Rox....and others.... Soon a new system will be in place so that anyone can submit articles, or lessons to WetCanvas without having to know HTML. This will truly be a great thing because we all have so much to share. Look for the complete new system in a few weeks. Scott is working on it now.

For now, why don't you start planning your lesson/article on paper and then when the new system goes on line, you will already have your article ready to go. You can have your images ready to upload as well.

I can't wait to see what all of you do!

That's good news. I went out to my shop and took a bunch of pictures of armatures and will see what I can put together to try the new format.

Frank - I will try to put something together for carving. I have a lot of resources and my own experience, but will take a little time. When will the new system be in place? I also need to figure out my photo program.

Hi Marilee,
Phyllis says a few weeks 'til we get the new system, so you have plenty of time. I'm looking forward to it.

cool - I will certainly go check it out. I probably wouldn't have time to do a tutorial, but I regularly do "walk-throughs" on my website. Right now I am working on a sculpture there, for anyone that wants to see a piece as it gets made (most of you already know about that, though).

I am very glad to see sculptors here, and excited by the varied and cool things being made

I took my own advice and submitted an article on armatures using the new publishing tool. The publishing tool wasn't easy to get the hang of, but I think it's worth taking the time to learn how to use. I would suggest printing out the step by step instructions before you start.
