Rather think that 'classical statue sculptors' may have worked from a 'sketch' but had live models brought in to 'play' with  Evil Evil !

I think that has to be true  !

I sometimes thing that they 'cheated' by making some sort of plaster cast of real people....Without suffocating them ! Wink

Having said that, there's one bit of classical sculpture that I've always wanted to 'have a go at' as a miniature. The Laocoon by Agesander.
Only problem there, is that I'd have to have an almost infinite amount of time to get anywhere remotely near it.
Maybe if I'd started about 40 years ago........ Grin Grin

Marble sculpture works in the flat.
Each side of the block would have a flat drawing sketched out on it, then the sculptor would carve it down until the sides met.
Bronze wax sculptures, where you build up, that's the hard game that you continue the tradition of... thats witchcraft

No Idea how you create such amazing figures, especially if you have a hard time envisioning 3d   

I have just sculpted ( i use the word sculpted in the loosest possible way) an octopus for our Venetian Frostgrave campaign and while it has 8 tentacles and a blob for a head its more representative than looking like an octopus.

Why haven't you posted the piccy you sent me, Will ?

That's very kind, Mark,  Embarrassed but I really DO think most folk could do it. I've just had an awful lot of practice.
There are some shapes that I've 'done' SO often, that I DON'T have to think about what I'm doing.....I know the rough shape to slap onto the model, and work from there.
Once the rough shape is on the model..I'm fine.
I've 'cheated' in the way I've made some models...Not dissimilar to the way Will was describing how marble was worked. Wink
