Jmouse: Sorry Chelyh, was chating on ICQ with my niece. Yes, I

mommaclara2001: Is Samantha happyu?
rjchase222: Each time I watch NJ do a figure I get a bit more
knowledge into the long term memory!!
Shannon: oh yes! she opened her cd/karaoke player.... she's
singing... Heaven opened a new coat, and Celeena didn't want to open
till morning
mommaclara2001: Well great.
Shannon: :-D
Shannon: is NJ still working on the man?

rjchase222: OOOOOOOOO a she not a heeeee
mommaclara2001: YW
rjchase222: My dh just rolled his eyes & walked out of the shop
Shannon: LOL shame on him!
rjchase222: Not really as NJ said if it made him laugh then that is
what a jester is supposed to do!!!!!
rjchase222: But I am the first to admit that my work is
kindergartner level!!!!
Shannon: LOL that's true!
meplus5kids left the room
rjchase222: I do much better with flowers now if I can just figure
out how to do canes I shld b good to go Houston :)
meplus5kids joined the room
Shannon: I know what you mean! the pics I sent to the list a little
while ago show one of my first attempts at a flower cane :-)
rjchase222: I need to get my puter out to my shop so I can follow
the tutes!!!
Shannon: there ya go!
Shannon: get a big extension cord! LOL
rjchase222: but have to work on the dh on this one he already got me
a tv for out there!!
rjchase222: OOOOOOOOOOO thats an idea Shannon!!!
Shannon: LOL
Shannon: hehehehe yep! get one of those super duper kind the guys
use outside...
rjchase222: well since I've got cable out in the shop maybe I will
get me a laptop!!!
Shannon: hey!!! that would be cool@
mommaclara2001: My that looks good, NJ
rjchase222: I think I might just try & find me one doesn't have to b
fancy just so I can get the tutes for clay!!
Fearless Leader: ok, what sort of muscle mass do women have that men
alix: Got to go call again ... will check in after
Fearless Leader: anyone?
alixnc left the room
rjchase222: NJ why doesn't my jester look like that? :)
Shannon: I know what you mean!
Shannon: ummmmm.....
Shannon: tummy? LOL
analog_ed2001: shoulders and upper body mass
chelyha55 left the room
Fearless Leader: Men have larger shoulders and upper body mass
Fearless Leader: women have more hips
Shannon: I was close...LOL
Shannon: in my case, it's tummy :-P
Fearless Leader: men's upper torso is more like a V and then from
the waist to the hips there isn't a lot of difference
Fearless Leader: women, ideally, are hour glass
Fearless Leader: and the waist, if perfect is 1.6 smaller than the
breast and hips
Fearless Leader: we're just looking at ideal bodies, not the real
bodies that we have
Shannon: but who's perfect???
Fearless Leader: women don't have a lot of muscle mass on their backs
rjchase222: thats good Shannon cause if we follow nature nothing is
Shannon: or EVERYTHING is!!!
Fearless Leader: but when we're learning how to sculpt, it's a good
idea to start out with an ideal body and then move towards realism
rjchase222: gotcha NJ!!
miss_meme_30 left the room
miss_meme_30 joined the room
Fearless Leader: ok, ready for the trick of the knees?
rjchase222: yes
Fearless Leader: pinch the sides of the knee with the leg bent and
then push in at the knee cap
miss_meme_30: raz did ya see my bracelet?
Fearless Leader: Now I built up the back of the leg to make a calf
rjchase222: miss meme I'm not sure where wld I have seen it?
Fearless Leader: and built up above the knee to make the thighs
miss_meme_30: when i do knees they look knobby
Fearless Leader: then bend the leg and pinch and press a knee cap
Shannon: I need to get me some of those kemper cutters... that would
make things easier!
miss_meme_30: its missy raz
rjchase222: Thanks missy!!!!
miss_meme_30: sry thought u were here when i posted the
Fearless Leader: now here's a trick for the elbow. Bend the arm and
unbend it, there will be a mashed up area. Smooth that mashed up
area, leaving it as an indent.
rjchase222: no was in the shower!
Fearless Leader: pinch the elbow when the arm is bent
rjchase222: kewl NJ
miss_meme_30: she makes it look soooo easy
Fearless Leader: centaur hair is mashed in the clay
Fearless Leader: spines are rarely straight, they have a curve to
Fearless Leader: see
Fearless Leader: she seems less uptight with a slight curve to the
Fearless Leader: now the next bit I do at this point is to smooth
out the seams where the leaf cut sections were attached
Fearless Leader: but are there any questions at this point?
miss_meme_30: not so far
Fearless Leader: nice thing about the aluminum foil armature is you
can pose it after putting the skin clay on.
Jmouse: well, I just posted the creature I did this week for my
grandson. it's in the picture site under Jean was at the
very bottom of the list when I was there.
Fearless Leader: when you sculpt a figure and start with it already
posed it's just more work, cover the skin and get the muscle mass
built up with arms and legs extended. Put on clay fabric for
clothing and THEN pose the figure. Then Cure. It's a lot easier that
Shannon: NJ, for the chest and tummy area, did you wrap the coils
with more foil? I missed that part...
Fearless Leader: just added more leaf shape cuts of skin clay
Jmouse: yeah...that's what I just did this week >S< ... will need to
try your way NJ
rjchase222: NJ I am going to make another jester using these
Shannon: you go girl! RJ!
Fearless Leader: her breasts are uneven and she needs more refining
for her arms, the seams need to be smoothed out. But she's female
and that's no doubt.
Jmouse: so it isn't hard to pose the figure when not using wire?
Shannon: I thought we were all uneven.... one side of the body is
bigger... ;-)
Shannon: the foil acts like wire... making it posable :-)
rjchase222: NJ just used foil right no wire inside?
Shannon: correct
Fearless Leader: no wire
Jmouse: will do my next one like that
rjchase222: well my first jester I did w/wire & foil! heehee
Fearless Leader: I end up hurting my fingers with wire poking out. I
can't change the pose as easily as with just foil.
Shannon: once you have the foil compressed, it bends and holds it's
shape like wire would
rjchase222: I found that out NJ about gettin poked with the wire!!!
Shannon: that's a cute pose NJ
Shannon: I can never even get the wire armature to come out right!
rjchase222: See now my 2nd jester will at least have one new lesson
in it! :)
Shannon: LOL
Shannon: I can see a whole room of jesters.... like Jesters
Anonymous or something....LOL
rjchase222: Actually it could be either really scary or neat I'm not
sure which! LOL
Shannon: Hi, my name is Ralph, and I'm a Jester.... (applause) ;-)
Fearless Leader: when we lie down on the floor, there's a gap at the
small of our back, if you remember this when you're posing your
figures they will look more relaxed, straight backs are uptight.
Fearless Leader: ok, I'm going to take a break, save log, refill my
coffee cup and get some food. 15 minutes, it'll be 10 past the hour
where ever you are, ok?
rjchase222: Shannon ROFLMAO
rjchase222: OK
Shannon: LOL
Shannon: ok NJ!
Fearless Leader: ok, saving log and off to do biologicals
