WIP: Maeve

Here is the latest.... she is my largest sculpt yet, standing at 26 inches. Such a large scale is proving to be quite a challenge as just about every bit of her has needed its own armature... even her ears!

She is the sculpt I plan on placing in the alcove in our foyer... to watch over guests as they come in... and point them in the direction of the fun. :)

ok! Mina is done

Man is she a pain to photograph! Still need to get some wire and hooks to hang her in front of the window...

WIP: Mina

Its been a couple weeks now since I've finished a new sculpt.. and this one is the culprit. Started her when I finished Farley.. She's my first suspended sculpt.. its difficult!!!! I had another Grover moment and got so frustrated and unhappy with her I just tossed her in the oven as is to just finally finish her. And again I am more pleased with her than I thought I would be! :)

So here she is so far... I hope to have her finished tomorrow.

When she is finished I plan on hanging her by the front door looking out the window.. to greet visitors. ;)

Two sketches

Here are a pair of sketches from the past few days ....

I had an idea for a sort of satyr... but man and deer instead of man and goat.... might make a complete illustration of him eventually... a sort of green man... maybe even a sculpture... who knows.

This one though... she will be making her home in an alcove in the foyer of our home. I've already started her armeture, and although she will be sitting upon rocks.. standing, she is 26" tall. She is on hold for now though, as I've run out of clay!! Her name will be Maeve.

Another Stray Sod

By the way... Delwyn is for sale on ebay!

I think its obvious I was rockin out to some 80s musica nd David Bowie/Labyrinth soundtrack while working on her. :)

Well this one is finished. I timed how long this one took me to make... just about 10 hours. :) I will post her on ebay probably tomorrow... figuring she is a days work... to get a better idea how much of an income I would have if I wanted to do this on a full time basis. :) Teehee.

Her hair still needs a bit of taming... and she will probably have her photoshoot tomorrow.

WIP: "Pretty" Faerie

Here is todays progress... well.. this mornings really. Its into the oven with her tomorrow... then perhaps a bit of paint... if I am feeling especially ambitious and the day isnt completely sucked away by house cleaning... I will give her hair.

She is also ready to be named. I should know it be the end of the day tomorrow.

WIP: Pretty Faerie

More progress tonight.

Will be adding her head and details tomorrow night.

"Pretty" Faerie

So I am making another attempt at a "pretty" faerie. Although my style is more suited for the weird and earthy... I refuse to accept that creating something foofoo is beyond my capabilities!! BAH!

I know her tah tahs are a bit massive right now. She will be getting a reduction tonight. ;)
