I have used clay modeling method to bring queen CLEOPATRA to life. This method as most of you might be aware of gives you the liberty of woking with fine details. I made the basic body shape first and then added the muscles to it. Finally, the skin was added and then the detailing was taken care of. A live model helped me in understanding the anatomy of the subject.
Besides, the ornamental work on the pillar (i.e. the cat, open wings and the columns ) is done freehand with the help of modeling tools. I tend to focus so much on the details that the overall look somehow gets a step treatment from me. It would be really interesting to know, if you guys also have a similar drawback like me………
