Measurement is the KEY METHOD we use to create realistic sculptures. Whether you want to sculpt portraits, animals, figures or fantasy creatures YOU MUST MEASURE if you want your sculptures to be believable.

Our methodology at The Sculpture School is founded on the principles of measuring (all the time) using our unique charts specifically designed to make your sculpting life easier and measuring is ESSENTIAL for achieving the realistic results you want. You need to know the important datum points from which to measure, how to take measurements from your model for portrait sculpture and if you are a beginner, actually understanding how to use and manipulate the callipers – all taught here on our courses! Our figurative charts also have Vital Proportional Features which are key points of measurement – keeping your figure sculpture on track and in proportion.
