Great sculptures, was wondering where you learned your trade as I would love to hone my skills and always looking out for courses, training in the U.K. Do you do any courses yourself?

Hi there. Thank you for the kind comments. I did a three year degree course at Wimbledon School of Art back in 1999 - 2002. It was called Technical arts & was an amazing place for learning traditional life sculpting skills as well as the basics of mould making & other things. It's basically a course for people wanting to get into special fx in films etc.......

Before that I did a course solely for make up fx.....lots of blood & gore! Thats where I learned the importance of being able to sculpt & began to focus on that in between making ropey zombies & monsters! :)

Thanks for the insight, they both sound like great courses. I have had a look at the Wimbeldon course and it looks like it would be a great way to learn, just a shame it's a three year course as I have boring things like my mortgage getting in the way. I will try and see what short courses are available.

I am trying to self teach at the minute and it's a slow process but I'm really enjoying it. I am currently trying to sculpt a Judge Dredd, this was when I came across you amazing work. I'm finding it hard to get get really smooth, sharp, hard edges, any advice?

No worries. I'm sure there are quite a few short courses around & I know that talented film industry sculptors such as Jordu Schell & Aris Kolokontes occasionally offer courses in monster maquettes etc.......they tend to visit various countries so its worth keeping an eye out for them.
 There's also the Stan Winston School of Character Arts that offers a whole range of instructional videos. Then theres always the Gnomon workshop.......the list goes on!!

At the end of the day though there are no shortcuts, just hard work, practice & application.......& you'll never stop learning. I've been sculpting for pretty much 20 years now & still have a long way to go!!

As for smooth, sharp, hard edges I find that slicing the material with a really sharp edged tool will help you get a nice edge & smoothing is best achieved with raking over the surface in all directions until it's even, Then you can smooth it out with whatever works best for the material you're using....water for clay etc.
