How are your sculpting skills?
Sculpting at twice-life-size helps enhance your observation skills and sculpture techniques, because it allows for easier manipulation of the sculpture tools as you’re learning. Neill has a tutorial in the current issue of Prosthetics Magazine on sculpting the ear at twice-life-size: this is a very simple, cost-effective exercise you can do at home that will hone your anatomical accuracy, which is essential for creating believable prosthetics.
Prosthetics Magazine always has great step-by-step tutorials covering the skills and processes involved in making prosthetics, and regularly features Neill himself and members of his team at Millennium FX.
The magazine is available in print and online – a digital subscription will give you access to all the back issues including those that are out of print. You can check out some of the ear sculpt tutorial content below…why not give it a go?
