Inspiration Piece: michelangelo's david

Inspiration Artist: michelangelo

I built this project using mostly clay , wire for the skeleton the pieces of wood for the stage and trees. i used the box to place everything together. I used simple clay modelling tools and carved everything from hand . There were no molds used in my project .i started out using large chunks of clay for the mass and smaller pieces for the body, after the wire frame was made . then i made the background from painting on the canvas board. I made goliath out to be an Apache helicopter then I painted and glued all the pieces together. The RPG was made from the block of foam that was provided. and scarf was made from the cloth provided.

I tried to cook this clay before i panted it , bad idea!
