“We’re trying something new this week: learning a craft from a professional! Effects artist Frank Ippolito spends the day with us to teach us some basic sculpting lessons. The first lesson sounds simple, but makes us look at common shapes in a new light.” -Tested
This is a full hour lesson by the guys from Tested.com (run by Mythbusters Adam & Jamie) on basic sculpting philosophy and techniques. They are being taught by artist Frank Ippolito who is a regular in their YouTube Channel. If you are interested in the rest of this video series, they are going to release more episodes for their website’s subscribers. I would also check out some of Tested’s other videos on behind the scenes effects, monsters, and makeup. My students always loved seeing the behind the scenes artistry of movies and it is a great segue into talking about careers in art!
