Introduction of Hyper Realistic Reconstructed Sculpture #7 Part 1

 Welcome to the the introduction of Hyper Realistic Realistic Reconstructed Sculpture#7. For those who are not familiar, this is a series of eight reconstructed sculpted busts using eight different skulls,four male and four female. After each clay model is completed,they are then moulded and afterwards cast in silicone. The entire series will be eventually part of a planned art installation.

In the meantime,today's post is the first for this project.
The individual shown appears to be an adult male. I'm not sure of his age. He's not likely to be young. The most impressive aspect of this particular skull is the extensive tooth loss especially the front teeth plus a noticeable reduction in his maxilla and mandible as well. .

 The first order of business is to carefully reconstruct the missing teeth and lost bone. This will aid in establishing the anatomical structure of the mouth.  After the teeth are restored, I'll begin the process of mapping out all the important anatomical landmarks on the facial mask. Following that procedure, the clay build up will be under way.

In my next post, I'll be showing the early build up of this sculpture with the facial features being established.
I'll report back soon on this sculpture and other studio news.
Have a great weekend. Cheers.
