Step one - I find or take a photo to use as a reference. Many times I take screen shots from videos I find online. This time I took photos of Griffin and Alex. At the time I was planning on sculpting “The Guy In the Astros Cap”. I had Griffin carry Alex and I took photos as he walked. I can still use the pictures of Griffin walking. Alex is too cute and tiny to stand in for the pig. I will have to wing the pig.
Step 2- I start with the armature for the feet, piecing them together from the small leftover scraps of my last sculpture.
I really like the pigeon toed aspect of this photo.
Even though I like work from photos I feel free to change anything I want.
