2004 Holiday Marathon

Christmas Day - Log 3 - Sculpting and THE FEAR, Traveling Kai, Starting face sculpting

Demo Stuff
Fearless Leader: Third Log and top of the hour break
Fearless Leader: I'll take questions at this point if
there are any
Fearless Leader: They found Mistletoe, so they are
kissing. LOL
meplus5kids: Like that pose the best, warm and fuzzy
Fearless Leader: I love wrapping the figures around
each other, so they can stand alone or be entwined.
dragonladyw2001: Well, I still have the rest of the
weekend to work, and a four day weekend coming up next
weekend. Maybe I'll just do it.
dragonladyw2001: Figure out some way to do some
sculpting. Do you do critiques? :)
Fearless Leader: Beth, I know THE FEAR. James had to
get "serious" with me to start doing figures. He felt
I was just being a "wuss" not to start.
Fearless Leader: All I can do is be here for you in
Demo. If you have a webcam I'll watch or see what
you've done. You can take pictures of your process and
put them in an epson album.
dragonladyw2001: <working up courage in Tampa>
dragonladyw2001: Thanks, NJ.
Fearless Leader: Oh sweetie, I know what you're
feeling. You got a topic, you got THE FEAR. I'm here
to hold your hand while you jump over THE FEAR.
dragonladyw2001: What did you do to get over it?
Fearless Leader: Ever see or read "Dune" Fear is the
mind killer... we let the fear pass over us and after
it goes only we remain.
dragonladyw2001: Yes.

Fearless Leader: his hair is a mess, you'll have to
excuse him, he didn't expect to be seen

Fearless Leader: now do you want to see him nude? I
ask ahead of time so folks don't have heart attacks.
dragonladyw2001: I go to life drawing classes once a
month. No heart attack here.

legs are fused so his boot and pants are Uniboot,

Fearless Leader: he was based on the Motley Fool where
you can shake him and everything flings about
Fearless Leader: lol
meplus5kids: lol
alix: Exactly what is LEXX?
Fearless Leader: It's a TV series, came from Canada,
SciFi comedy with sexual overtones
alix: Oh TY
Fearless Leader:
alix: Ever done a Tom Baker Dr. Who?
Fearless Leader: On that page you see me smoozing with
the cast and crew, I went to Halifax to get permission
to use the characters for teaching.
dragonladyw2001: Tom Baker is my favorite of that
series. Haven't watched it in a long tim.

played Imhoptep in "The Mummy" movies. Jean Luc
Picard. Bruce Willis
Fearless Leader: love them bald guys
dragonladyw2001: Apparently. LOL
dragonladyw2001: Although Vosloo is pretty good to the
Rossija: So's Patrick Stewart as Jean-Luc.
alix: You do such fab noses
Fearless Leader: I love distinctive noses.
meplus5kids: NJ, got the tutes on hands & feet, but
what about making lips? Got the nose and eyes down,
but can't seem to get the mouth
Fearless Leader: Imhotep as MerDude: Arnold Vosloo as
a MerMan
alix: Does everyone know there's a new Dr. who

alix: TV I think ... original bit I saw was a BBC
Fearless Leader:
Fearless Leader:
Fearless Leader:
Fearless Leader: All the figures done will have
something on working the around the mouth area.
meplus5kids: Thanks, just saved them all.
Fearless Leader: We could review doing a mouth right
now if you wish.
dragonladyw2001: That would be helpful.
meplus5kids: Thanks, that would be great
alix: Sure :D
meplus5kids: Got a face going right now and the
lips(mouth) looks like kinda funny
Fearless Leader: full sized? So you can see or small
size that you'll be working on with your figures?
Fearless Leader: we got to do Joseph and Mary's faces
meplus5kids: I'm working with small size right now,
but whatever everyone else wants is fine
Fearless Leader: ok, let's work on Joseph and Mary.
We'll start with Mary's face, how's that?
dragonladyw2001: I'm thinking of starting on smaller
figures so whatever would be appropriate to learn
dragonladyw2001: Have at it.

stargazer_sbpcg: why is the body wrapped in plastic?
meplus5kids left the room
Fearless Leader: ok, I'm going to draw something here
on cam to review the face grid. Jean, the plastic is
so the body is protected while we sculpt the face.
Also so the arms and legs don't get stuck to each
other or the body while we handle her for face
alix: warning ... goblins who have taken over the
Brian Froud site ar planning Poxing Day
stargazer_sbpcg: ahh... Thanks!! (*)

width wide

way between the chin and the bottom of the nose

width distance from the side of the nose going outward
stargazer_sbpcg: <<==has a wild imagination... :)
alix: oh criminy ... excuse interruption
stargazer_sbpcg: i'll pass...
Fearless Leader: there's a pentagon around the mouth,
it is the under the nose, from the sides of the nose
to the outer edges of the mouth and the under the
lower lip, this is key to sculpting mouths
stargazer_sbpcg: cool, nj
Fearless Leader: now there are "V" shapes on the face
that are key to sculpting
