The Stimson Competition

Every year, the sculpture department at Pafa holds an in class, figure modeling competition. 2nd and 3rd year certificate students get three weeks of class time to sculpt a 32-36 inch figure. A judge is then brought in. The winning sculpture is cast in plaster and added to the academy’s collection. This tradition has been going on for over 100 years and I am honored to be a part of it.

The competition started last week, and for my first session with the model I just drew. I tried to analyze the gesture and major twists of the pose. Here are my studies.
