Mastering Portraiture: Advanced Analysis of the Face Sculpted with Clay (248530)
In this follow-up book to his first volume Portrait Sculpting: Anatomy & Expressions in Clay, Philippe Faraut expands on modeling the human face in water-based clay featuring more than 100 new sculptures. Designed for the advanced artist, this text utilizes nearly 600 photographs including 64 full-page images to analyze the requirements for capturing a likeness. Emphasis is placed on an in-depth study of facial anatomy critical in developing compelling expressions and bringing life to three-dimensional representations of the face. Additional studies are included to show successful treatments of hair and drapery, as well as, the effects of the aging process.

Further Features include:
Studies of various sculpting styles.
Techniques for analyzing planes of individual features.
Discussions and comparisons of gender differences.
Methods for avoiding mistakes.
Examples of different finishing options.
