How to sculpt a camel from modeling clay

Let`s learn how to sculpt a camel from modeling clay. I must say – the method is exactly the same as when modeling any four-legged animal. Find a good realistic picture and try to sculpt as it looks like in life.I want to say that it makes no sense to learn how to sculpt cartoon images – there’s enough merely to do something and then confidently call “camel”( or “mountains” or “dragon”). In general, I encourage you to learn to draw and sculpt realistic images.

And I always suggest to sculpt animals(at least mammals) from one piece by way of extrusion. After all, the real organisms cannot be divided into parts while alive, and are a monolith.
