Hi Folks,

This is my first sculpture and I must say this has been much fun :D ! I really struggled with the facial features, mainly due to scale I think. The face is a very tiny area and my hands tend to be a little shaky.

The lighter version was done in plasteline and the darker is done in non-firing clay. Comments and critiques welcome...

Very nice !

I will say, though, the length of the forearm seems a bit long (the arm used to support the head).

I think the face proportions are good, though.

I bet you had a ton of fun making the pieces!

Very nice first pieces! Seems you have a knack for it. As you move alone you will get better at body proportions. I know in drawing it is hard to draw a tall thin lady and takes practice and patience. I think it is similar with sculpting. Very nice detailing on your ladies, though.:thumbsup:

Nice work. I use non-firing (air-dry) clay, too. I notice that the smaller the face, the worse time of it I have with the air-dry clay. You've done well to get the detail you have. Keep sculpting, and have a blast with it!
