Ecorche 2004

This is the first sculpture I ever did. It was an anatomy study in which notes were taken in clay; it took me 200 hours of hell to make. First I sculpt the skeleton, on top of which I sculpt the muscles on the right side. Pierre-Paul Richer's (professor of artistic anatomy of L'ecole des Beaux Arts) "Artistic Anatomy" was used as reference. This was sculpt under the guidance of Stephen Perkins at the Academy of Art University.
