I took a class on traditional figure sculpture. The instructor was Alicia Ponzio. Check her work out on the world wide web, it's outstanding. The class covered basic technique and major anatomical landmarks to consider in the sculpting process. This sculpture is 24" tall and clay. I had to finish early and didn't get to complete the modeling of all the forms. The finish is pretty rough, but I like the surface quality like this- also the face is very rudimentary due to time and scale. It was a pretty humbling experience overall- but I loved it.
