First, I must apologize for the length of this thing. (There's a lot I wanted to say to make sure the basics are covered. The next one won't be so annoying.) I had to split it into 2 parts 'cus it was too long. I wrote this a while ago, I just hadn't posted 'cus there aren't a lot of pics at first, and then there's a big clump where I talk about hair. ;/ I figure it's okay though, 'cus that's the hardest part. (Some of it may be a little confusing. I didn't re-read all of it.)
Let it be known, this is a slightly bigger sculpture than most of mine. I wanted it to be easy enough to see.
This was a commission I did. You can see the final product here: [link]
I also recommend two general clay tutorials:[link][link]
You may need to download for full size. I'm not sure.
