The human figure in sculpture is a powerful form, capable of great expression and depth. Sculpting the figure in any medium is a rewarding practice, but one that presents special challenges for the maker.

Tanya Russell, founder and principal of the Art Academy in London, details the whole creative process for sculpting the figure, from the fundamental conceptual and practical considerations through to the finished and presented work. She covers essential tools and equipment, methods for building armatures, and the processes for creating not only realistic, but also abstract and expressive figures, in a variety of styles and materials. Techniques are supported by practical exercises with step-by-step instructions and images. The book is filled with the inspiring works of contemporary sculptors, all of whom are tutors, students, or alumni of the Art Academy.

Modelling and Sculpting the Figure is an essential companion for beginners and established artists alike.

Review:

Beautifully presented in a fairly simple format with clear and simple language. There are plenty of both colour and black and white images which are quite inspirational is themselves...This book is helpful in its focus on some universal artistic principles and approaches to sculpting the human figure. - --Mary Cousins, South Wales Potters Newsletter

Book Description:
