MAKING AND USING WORKING DRAWINGS FOR REALISTIC MODEL ANIMALS
To make an animal “live” in a three-dimensional sculpture, you sometimes have to make it live in a two-dimensional drawing first. With carefully crafted illustrations as a guide, the animal’s character will show, it will have realistic facial expressions, and its body language will be just right. No sculptor or model-maker can do without this detailed manual that covers the basic components–from trunks and limbs to paws and claws–of all kinds of animals. Collect and organize information on your animal, take measurements for reference images and modify them to suit your model, find out what materials to use and how to transfer shapes from the working drawing to the sculpture. Includes numerous photos and grids to follow.
