I used the exact proportion of the human body, yet scaled down. I scaled up the scissor blade into a big enough blade for the person to lean on.
This picture is of me sculpting the beginning stages of the body. In the beginning, I was not very sure what I was going to do. I planned on doing a fight scene between two females, however I decided against this and moved onto the person leaned over a blade. In brainstorming stages, I wanted to make a life size neanderthal, made of wire and plaster strips. This project would've taken a very long time and was better suited for a team of people. I decided against it. I am very pleased with the finished product of my sculpture. I am not sure if I plan to paint it, or leave it completed white.
