Thursday Night Effort

Last night I tried using sculpting calipers to transfer the proportions of the model to the 16″ x 20″ canvas. Holding the calipers at arm length, opening them to the total height of the model from top of the head to the tip of the toes and transfering those measurements to the canvas. Then mark the size of the head and move down into the body marking the major intersections and body landmarks.

It worked out and at this size I was able more easily to concentrate on the major masses of tone rather than getting caught up in the details of the face, etc.
