As those of you who regularly read my blog know, I have had several commission this year already. I’m proud to say that I have completed all but one of those pieces. I still have a very fun charcoal drawing to finish, but it should be done next week. I have said to myself for about the last 3 or 4 weeks (Probably longer), that once I get my commission finished, I would like to develop some of my current themes into sculpture. Well, I cheated a bit. Today while I was looking after my son, I broke out my old oil based clay and tools (That hasn’t been touched in oh…about 5 years) and decided to play around a bit. I’m happy with what I came up with…though the sculptures were more for practice than anything else. I’m looking forward to casting a little and working with straw, plaster, paper mache and various other forms of sculpture again.
Anyway, I figured I’d share a few photos of the oil based clay sculptures I toyed around with today.
A new spin on Ben Grimm (The Thing of The Fantastic 4)
An old “Codger” clay version (Without a reference photo) of my Re Imaging Gozer painting
Until next time,
