Ecorche Class 8 of 16 by shalonpalmer Ecorche Class 8 of 16 by shalonpalmer
Ecorche Class 8 of 16, 2007
24" High
Oil clay; armature wire

This class we added the front quads on the thighs. We also started in on the hip and butt area - which we'll continue on next Tuesday.

The teacher seems to enjoy referencing dancers and horses during discussions - it's both educational and entertaining. Also a good chunk of talk goes into disection of cadavers which is quite interesting and is kinda sad (hopefully I won't come off sounding like a psycho...) it's kinda sad that they're only really done in medical schools, because I would love to see some of these structures vs. just seeing and imagining from illustrations or sculpted works which no matter how acurate - they're always an artist's interpretation.....

------------------

The class is Tuesday and Thursday nights at the New York Academy of Art. I will hopefully be taking pictures after every class - I'll post them up in my gallery and move the previous to my scraps. Eventually the figure will be 1/2 skeleton and 1/2 muscle.

Thanks for the link!! Yeah, on a similar note, the bodies exibit has been in nyc for forever now and i haven't made it in to see it yet. It's a different, unaffiliated exhibit - but close to me and I need to get to it before it closes... Also friends of mine are getting married in philly next month - so I'll have to get to the mutter museum too!! :D I think they're exhibits that I'll be interested in - but not sure if I would donate myself to them.........
