translucent, which is my standard sushi rice, but it'll work

running out of clay

ljcswartz: either is ok

ljcswartz: I moved my clay to the computer soon after getting to the
doglove22000: I can only watch inteermittenly - I still need to get
ready for today's outing to the bank!!!!!
bettyintennessee: I have to do that, too
doglove22000: Watching NJ is such a treat!!!!
bettyintennessee: I agree with that
auntyalias: so roughly form the head, torso and one leg
auntyalias: then separate out the other leg and the arms
auntyalias: set them aside
auntyalias: now I'll move the cam angle and I'll be slicing down the
center of head, torso, leg, and bury the pen cover so the opening of
the pen is at the foot
ljcswartz: I am checking for the pen opening this time
auntyalias: LOL
twinmom94002: heh...reminds me of "Alien Autopsy"

bettyintennessee joined the room
twinmom94002: i believe she mixed pearl/white/trans/burnt umber (?)
bettyintennessee: Thanks..I can't say much without getting knock
off..Especially a question! lol
twinmom94002: Hi there!
bettyintennessee: hello!
tricia_608: hello
auntyalias: I love it when we blow minds
bettyintennessee: lol
auntyalias: the young people are so tripped out when I show them what
we are doing
auntyalias: pat yourselves on the back
twinmom94002: ok...looks like I don't have to play yente after all,
huh NJ? *grin*
auntyalias: for we are Techno BUff
meowys_hairball: hehe
auntyalias: nope, Said is "interested" in this gal
auntyalias: he says her parents are "normal"
auntyalias: LOL
auntyalias: like we're not
twinmom94002: hahahahahahahahahahahahaha
meowys_hairball: hehe
auntyalias: LOL
auntyalias: God save me from being normal
ljcswartz: hehe
twinmom94002: no doubt! here here!
auntyalias: ok, about this foot
auntyalias: the instep of this foot will go on your finger, where the
pen rests
auntyalias: so pick up your pen at this point and see if the instep
lands at that knuckle of your middle finger correctly
auntyalias: as we sculpt going upward on this body
auntyalias: we will continually pick up the pen and see how it fits
your hand
auntyalias: the booty lands on the outside of your forefinger
auntyalias: see
bettyintennessee: I have to run..Need to get to the bank and to the
teller before 4. Thanks, NJ
tricia_608: Bye Betty
bettyintennessee: bye, All
bettyintennessee left the room
auntyalias: so there's the calf, and the knee is made by pinching the
sides, pushing up ward on the knee cap and then pushing down from the
top of the knee here it meets the thigh
auntyalias: so we have a nice leg surrounding the pen cover, see the
top and be frightened
auntyalias: LOL
auntyalias: don't trip about how the top will look at this point, if
we have extra clay we pull it off the top of the head
auntyalias: how I sculpt is to pull the clay, drag the extra upward
auntyalias: any questions at this point?
tricia_608: Nope just trying to keep a 2 & 5 year old busy in
and out of here..
auntyalias: ok, what I'm going to check at this point is the booty
auntyalias: will the booty land on the thumb side of my forefinger
auntyalias: now I see that the calf needs to be trimmed down
auntyalias: the knee needs to be lowered
auntyalias: or the figure will have a really short thigh to have the
booty land on my finger like I want it to
ljcswartz: \mine too but I really liked that knee I had
auntyalias: don't be afraid to make a new knee
auntyalias: the more you do it the easier it'll become
tedi382001 joined the room
auntyalias: Hey Amy
auntyalias: how ya doing honey?
tedi382001: good thanks
auntyalias: here are the screen shots from yesterday

female and just got one leg done so far
tedi382001: yes I saw the one from yesterday
tedi382001: what kind of pen are you using?
tedi382001: ok thanks, bics round stic

chelyha55: hold on...
chelyha55: ok I think it's ok now
auntyalias: those screen shots will get you caught up
auntyalias: but today we're doing a female form
chelyha55: ever since I downloaded the stuff to do postage online I
have had trouble with Java
auntyalias: ergo the booty call here
chelyha55: I just popped in to say hi
chelyha55: got plenty of time now...
auntyalias: I found that I made the leg too long, I'd have had a ton
of clay above the pen, so I'm moving the calf, thigh and butt downward
auntyalias: nice thing about doing things live is you can see the back
and forth of the process, trying this and that and if it doesn't work
out, do something else
meowys_hairball: sorry, went afk and kinda forgot I was watching the
doglove22000: I will have to leave in about 10 to 15 minutes - and I
want to say that "I DO NOT WAnT TO LEAVE" - And Thank You NJ for
sharing your talents and bye to All.
auntyalias: see ya Rickie
auntyalias: since we're going to add the other leg, give some clay to
the hip that has no leg at this time

different from that perspective
