Man you are awesome, I wish I could sculpt like that. How long do one of these take you, a couple hours?

Rodney Dollah said...

Very Nice!

If you do not mind me asking, how long did it take to sculpt, from armature to the present sculpt?

Best,
Rodney

Yo, everybodies!
Gracias for los commentos, mucho fabricato chica ferdi parasol.

l e d o, Rodney Dollah: It takes me 20 minutes per piece.

Well, not really :

Instead of answering your question, let me ask you: Why did you ask that question?

I've always been fascinated by that question, people always ask how long it took you to do this and that, as if that matters any. I really don't see the point but I may be in the minority. Lots of artists like to tell us how long they spend on their pieces, that practice I understand even less.

In my particular case, and since I am not a formally trained artist in any discipline whatsoever, meaning I mostly learn by trial and error, I take forever and a day to do any of the things I do and I'm totally aware that everything I do is consistently flawed; with the sort of flaws that only come from ignorance. This is how I teach myself.

I couldn't even tell you how long it takes from start to finish because nothing is ever finished. Every drawing, every poem and every skulpch I make exists in a perpetual state of progress. It never gets done, it's never finished, is forever flawed and forever improving, all at the same time.

I've never been concerned with the time things take to be made, however, I must say I do work tirelessly for ungodly amount of hours, feverishly non-stop to take things to a certain level of completion; this semi-completed state is a rather uncomfortable but tolerable stage. At this point I can call it a day and leave it alone (at least for the time being) and from this point I can assess my personal progress, take leaps of faith, fail, succeed and fail again and learn some more and so on and so forth until the end of time.

Way too Awesome!

Rodney Dollah said...

Process Junkie,

Well I can only speak for my self but I only ask this when I see a piece of work by an artist that I find very interesting. I wonder to my self if the artist painstakingly attacked this piece over and over again or maybe he or she had developed a technique that helped in producing it in a matter of a short time. I find that time does not measure an artist skill or how well they approach a piece. This only matters in a production environment, where you get paid more for great looking art in a short period of time. There are artists that I know that have been working on a single painting for more then ten years and in my opinion I think a piece of art is never really done, it is only at a stand still till ones skill level increases and if still interested in the piece you start at it again. I hope this helps explain why I ask and hope that you were not offended by my question.

Rodney

Process Junkie said...

Rodney Dollah No, not at all, I was not offended in the least. Actually, I am always flattered by the question because people are interested in knowing more about something they really like or admire.

More precisely, I'm puzzled by the question because I don't understand the motive behind it. I mean, no one can read anybody's mind. I can definitely understand sheer curiosity. that is very human.

Most often, though, speed (or the lack of ) plays an important roll on how most people perceive a piece of art. It makes no different to me but somehow I find it fascinating. I like telling the story of a writer friend who at one point was bragging about an artist who was pencilling his comic. He called me and asked what I thought of his rather mediocre-to-poor artwork and to be quite diplomatic I said something to the effect of "it's OK" to what he replied, " "Isn't it amazing? and he does an entire page in 20 minutes"

I sketch furiously fast because I believe in my own crazy theories about learning how to draw and I approach sculpting in a similar manner, to a degree but since they are two vastly different mediums, I spend a lot more time modeling and massaging the clay because the act of touching and feeling the form is pleasurable in a way drawing can't be.

For sketching, I'd much rather have a model in front of me for the duration, whether live or photographic reference.

For sculpting however, I don't like using reference, sometime I would use an old sketch to loosely base the pose upon. Since the 2-D drawing is flat and shows only one side of the figure, the fun part is to figure out the rest.

Noooo, terrible, buenisima maestro.

Shannon said...

I'm really diggin' these sculpts! They look incredible.

Carito said...

Hola Alberto, Además de decir "felicitaciones por todo lo que ponés en tu blog, guau! y demás exclamasiones de admiración" quería preguntarte qué material usas para hacer las esculturas?, quedan definitivas y duraderas o al secar se resqeubrajan? Veo tus cosas y me dan ganas de probar!
ahora pruebo en inglés... paciencia... What is the stuff you use to modeling the sculps?

Abrazo!

Desiree Cassidy said...

Everybody's gotta be in a Gang said...

That's so cool, Alberto!

BToole said...

I was curious to what kind of clay you were using? This figure looks great. I have been wanting to get into clay myself but when i visited the local art store there was a world of selections to choose from. I am familiar with super sculpey but wasn't sure if that was a good choice. any suggestions for clay would be wonderful.

Thanks :)

Process Junkie said...

Plastilina Roma, that's what I use.

Liam Collins said...

Lucio
That is an awesome model. Are you thinking of producing? I especially like the version with the long bangs
: )

Process Junkie said...

I'm considering it, it could be something fun to do Thanks for your comment.

Marcos Mateu said...

Process Junkie said...

Thanks, Marcos
BTW, I love your work!

Steve Talkowski said...

Wow, just now seeing this sculpt for the first time - what an AMAZING interpretation of your drawing!

Process Junkie said...

Thanks, Steve.

I loved sculpting this one, many challenges, though.
