Blocking II : Legion Part IV

Alright, so amidst the process of blocking and creating form, you will move on to unify and blend the surface of your sculpt.

Here's an example of the surface of an early blocked sculpture.

Now here are some of the tools i'll be using to refine the form and the surface of the sculpture.
Note that these are called "rake tools". Due to the raking action across the surface of your sculpture.
On the left is "loop heads" and on the right is "teethed/rake heads"

Teethed rakes are good to really scrape the contour lines in to the surface, similar to how your would sketch with a fine pencil the lines that make up contour.

loop rakes are good to smooth out surfaces and also create recesses on the surface.

So these are just a few of the tools i use, stay tuned for more in the future!
And a little update on the Legion sculpture.
