WORK-IN-PROGRESS series: Catwoman by TrevorGrove WORK-IN-PROGRESS series: Catwoman by TrevorGrove
I was asked if I could show my process more, and I'm going to try to post old WIP shots of my stuff, if I have them. I don't have a lot of the really ugly stuff, to be honest. I find a lot of my process really ugly and unappealing, up until a point. Obviously, I understand why it's interesting and educational, because I love that stuff from other artists....but when it comes to my own work, it's just awful to look at. Sometimes I don't even photograph stuff until it's looking OK because I get so put off to my own stuff.

Here is a look at the wax process for Julie Newmar Catwoman, from rough to finish....Follow the arrows. hahah!! This was started in wax, so there was no clay rough. Some of these pieces have a clay rough I can show.

Enjoy, if you're interested,

Trev

Wow, this is amazing!
...Everyday I work with wax too, but I would never be allowed to build such great scupltures. XD

I really like the details and how real the clothes look ^-^

:) Oh, you will surprise yourself! Just keep pushing....It's really just about enduring frustration for a few weeks to get to a result. Wax is powerful for small detail work!
So glad you like this, thank you!

Well, I just use it at work ^^° (I'm going to be a dental technician, so wax is one of my daily friends ^^ )
But I was always interested in making more with it, something like you are doing. Maybe one day ^^

No problem, it's just too great ^-^

You'll definitely have gained the skillset in dentail sculpture that you can apply to making figure work. The wax I use is so important to the process, and you might find a greater control with it. Here's a link to what I use: studiorgc.yolasite.com/wax.php

Try it some day, you'll have fun!
