lol! No, haha, I was speaking metaphorically--what with having watched every Jaws, Blue Thunder, SeaQuest, a hundred thousand times, and trying to keep up with the person who commented earlier that said their mother dated/knew him. When you get old like me you'll know how easy it is to blurt out stupidity and soil your Depends Undergarments.
I'm so glad that I follow your posts. Jaws is one of my all-time favorite movies. Ever.
Of all time.
This also made me smile because my roomie and I kind of decided that we would have loved for Roy Scheider to be Samuel Vimes if they ever made a Watch movie for Discworld. Won't happen, but I'm reading a Vimes-centric book now [Night Watch], and so I looked and said, "oo! Vimes!"
...not that you actually needed to know any of that...
I didn't know about Adam's new wax. I did a few pieces in some of his blend years ago, and it wasn't too shabby. Everyone prefers different qualities in their wax, though. So far, my favorite is still TMS, which is what I sculpt most of my stuff in.
Wow... I've been watching your Gallery for a while now. Never thought to look at your ID until today, and I'm shocked that you're only 23! My age, and doing stuff I would expect from a master sculptor with 20years of professional experience. Beautiful work. Keep it up!
Haha! That is incredibly kind of you. Believe me, I usually sit here wondering why the heck I'm not spending my youth just being YOUNG instead of working so much...but it really means a lot to know folks like the stuff. Thank you again, Trev
nice work as always and a pleasure to view Trevor. Have you spent the majority of the last number of years just studying the Portrait? i thought i noticed you could also draw portraits too so no wonder you got skills in 3d!! Lord knows what TMS must be like!, i tried to melt my Asbro i the micro(10 mins) and the container started to give out with no dint in the wax!! but once melted in a crock pot, it was the best wax i own for faces. carves so cleanly.
I have spent all of my time as a sculptor studying portraits. It's really the only reason I was able to start getting work, as I'm not as skilled as others with sculpting the figure and drapery and so forth.
I haven't tried Asbro, but most harder waxes are comparable to TMS. I'm a TMS fanboy. I would hate to be without it. I usually don't notice a wax's strengths or weaknesses until I'm finishing it off.
I'll just have to be more patient Trev and keep practicing the basics... I wanted to try some TMS once but never got very far with my PM enquiry so settled for trying a tub of Asbro. had it a while an only just tried it!
