I’m going to start my first big sculpture in stone soon, so I’ve decked out my work area in plastic (to keep the dust down). I think Dexter Morgan would be impressed!
Another small sculpture I finished last night, based upon the character Arlen from the excellent novel, ‘The Painted Man’ by Peter V. Brett. http://www.petervbrett.com/
He’s made out of polymer clay and is around 5cm in length.
I had a Tweet from Peter Brett himself, “Wow. Incredible sculpture of the Warded Man by @Darrell_Hayward”, “I love it”
For those that don’t know, the Warded Man is the alternate name for The Painted Man. To follow Peter on Twitter, use @PVBrett
Here we go – my work for the past 5/6 months, a bit at a time, while doing other stuff! The problem occurs in that it is ‘shave a bit off, add a bit here, wait for it to dry, get on with life, next day….’ etc. I guess if I were to do one in one go it would be 4 weeks or so, Monday to Friday, 8 hours a day. Perhaps net time I’ll put a timer on each time I do a bit! Anyway, here she is, Cleopatra, based upon a painting by Sam Weber, done for National Geographic. Please take a look at the original, which is beautiful. http://sampaints.com/2011/11/22/national-geographic/
She was a little hard to do, seeing as I only had a side-on reference, but I hope I did his painting justice.
She is made of air-dry clay and is full (head) size. Better photos will be posted when the weather (ie amount of daylight) improves!
