Anatomy course – building a small muscle figure in Chavant

art, sculpture, sculpture process


Last semester I attended a brilliant “Anatomy for sculpture” course so these are photos of modelling a small muscle-man made on an armature in soft chavant modelling wax. He was built over 11 sessions starting with the skeleton and adding all his muscles on one side of the body. As well as a life-model we used books, wall-charts, various damaged 3D models of the human skeleton/muscles, and a very useful iPad app for reference. Approximate size: h: 35cm x w: 15cm x d: 15cm.
