About This Class

Hello!

In this class I'm going to guide you through the sculpting of a complex character.
I picked a mantis, but the class will help you to figure out how to sculpt an insect from the idea to the finish artwork.
It is not a difficult class and beginners can absolutely try it out, however it is a long sculpt to do and not something you can make in an hour, so patience is absolutely needed.

I hope this inspires you to tackle more complex sculpting project and just give it a go.
Don't worry too much about the outcome, to become a better sculptor you need to practice a lot.

xx
Stéphanie
