I think you're gonna hafta be a whole lot more detailed than that. You know what you need to do, but we have no idea whatsoever.

Make top/bottom plates from plywood, curved as needed, fill in with standard studs. Then 2 layers of 3/8 drywall wetted on both sides. It will be bendable enough to fit most curves. For really tight curves, use layers of 1/4" drywall.

Here is an easy alternative - premade drywall corners. Install and finish just like drywall but way less hassle.
