New Follygon Tutorial: Sculpting The Planes of the Head

Sculpting The Planes of the Head | In-Depth Tutorial

Hey all, I wanted to tell you about my new tutorial!

The human head is one of the most difficult things to sculpt. I've seen artist go years without fully grasping the most fundamental concepts needed to work from the ground up. Instead playing around in the mud until something starts to feel right.

Well that's no way to work, so in this tutorial I will be demystifying the head by breaking it down into its primary forms. Taking you step by step through close to 20 different stages of developing the head to build one stage at a time on top of one another until we have a finished bust.

This tutorial is FREE for all students of the Appeal Academy and members of The Rendered tier on my Patreon.

  • Learn how to sculpt the planes of the head, information that will be transferable to all your work moving forward.
  • Learn how to sculpt the head, eyes, nose, lips, ears, neck, and more.
  • Learn how to transition from hard planar shapes into softer, more organic forms.
  • Learn particular rhythms of the face to make it appear more masculine or feminine.

Seriously, I don't think I've ever gone so in depth in my entire life as I do in this tutorial and I'm very proud of it. Can't wait to have you take a look. I know it will be helpful!
