How to properly sculpt expression

Expression can make or break a sculpt.  If on your figure’s face you’ve modeled a wonderfully goofy smile, yet his back is hunched, his shoulders are slouched, and his hands are hanging loosely by his sides, you’ve compromised the emotional cohesion of the piece. The body language tells the audience the figure is pensive, forlorn, or maybe even heartbroken.  His facial expression, however, paints a very different and possibly confusing story.

Take a sneak peak at John Brown’s Sculpting Expression and Fantasty Characters DVD tutorial and see how John approaches the concept of proper expression in context.
