Sorry if seeing illustrated/sculpted musculature freaks you out - let me know if this needs to be tagged as mature!
Anywhoodle, latest sculpture! I'm a total nerd, and my passion lies in the sciences, specifically biology. I actually teach in the labs at my university, Human Anatomy and Physiology course, so naturally my passion is fueled.
My favorite side
This was made with Sculpey over a wire armature, and painted with acrylics.
Still looking for a name for this little guy, Markhors are so cool. Such long shaggy manes and magnificent horns!
Naturally I can't complete a sculpture without adding some sort of fantasy spin, so he got the treatment as well. At first I was going to go with red balloons holding the braids/twists up, but somehow the idea morphed into birds and butterflies.
He's about 5.5" tall, 5.5" long, and 4.5" wide, made with Sculpey clay over a wire armature.
Lovely bum view shows off the birds and butterflies nicely.
So I've been on a bit of a tea-dyed paper run, I'm loving that stuff for art! I dye the paper myself, and then use it in various ways. Here is the latest piece!
"Starchild" was sketched in and detailed with ink, then washed with watercolours and amped up with soft pastels and some white ink for highlights. I'm loving the way the purple compliments the tea tones!
