The Marquis: progress

Trying different collars…

And I’ve changed the position of his arm. The straight arm looked fine from the side, but not so much from the front. Also, I made his arms bare and then put the ‘fabric’ over the top, but I think they were initially too skinny and now I’m getting a bit lost. Might have to take the clay off and start again.

In other news, I’m doing an ecorche workshop in April with sculptor Jason Arkles. I’ve wanted to do ecorche for ages, so am really looking forward to it. If I decide to remake the arms I’ll wait until after the workshop!
