Getting Back to It / by Giovanni Nakpil

After a two-year absence, I've decided to attend the sculpting sessions after work.  It's been a while since I've been in a studio with a nude model and a ball of warm clay between my fingers. No amount of Zbrush, Mudbox or whatever fancy software out there can compare to the tactile nature of having a real three-dimensional object in front of you. Even though CG is my trade, sculpting is my true passion. This is why I'm determined to dust off my sculpting tools and re-train my muscle memory.

I'm currently in my third session with this piece below. We have six sessions in total before we switch to a male model, so I'd like to take this piece to a state that's fairly finished. I will continue to post my progress.
