It’s been a while since I’ve posted a blog on the steps of a project. This one is on a full life size 6’-0” Jesus with a 12’-0” cross which is one of three life size sculptures I will be carving for a new Retreat here in the Midwest,which I have 18 months to complete.
The pictures show some drawing and clay steps at half scale, then I can move to wood at full scale. This has been a big challenge for me studying human anatomy, which is not very easy for this simple woodworker.
The customer approved the drawing which took me a full month of drawing and now I’m working out the details in clay for approval and to help me see it in 3D, then I can transfer to full scale for the wood glue-up.
I should be done with the clay model by the end of the month. I’m starting on the hands tomorrow which will probably take about a week or less I hope.
Well, Thanks for looking and happy woodworking!!!
