Sculpture: Clay on Other.
I used to participate in ice sculpture competition events. I always carved heads. You only have 4 hours to complete your design. This is a very hard thing to do because unlike clay once you chop off the nose you have a really hard time to put it back. Carving and modeling are opposite brain thought processes. Carving removes material, modeling adds material like making a snow man.
So when you carve ice you have to be fast. That means you need a plan if you want to finish before they call to drop your tools.
When I started I had a bunch of pictures to work off of. It takes time to convert 2D information to 3D information. If you have a 3D model it saves a lot of time. This head was my model.
I always wanted to carve stone but I have the patience of a nat. Stone and ice are hard substances. I finally realized I could train my brain to carve stone by learning how to carve ice.
