Its been a long while since I commented on your work. your skills are so great and inspiring and I wish I could sit down and watch you work (in a padawan way not a creepy one) Very impressive indeed. thankyou for doing what you do.
I really appreciate you taking the time to say it. I don't think watching my process would be terribly interesting...I'm mostly just staring at photos and trying to unravel the puzzle of a person's face for hours and hours and hours. A few hours of knocking my head against the wall and threatening to quit sculpting....then a few minutes of bliss as I start to figure something out. haha! It's a crazy process.
Thank YOU for letting me know the work inspires you...truly the best compliment anyone can give to any artist.
This guy embodied Superman better than any actor I've ever seen, at least from a visual standpoint. This bust, in my opinion, looks more like The Man With No Name or Cumberbatch's Khan. It's probably the knitted brow. He really looked like Superman when he was closing his eyes and turning his face to the sun.
Y'know? Your Drake's figure helped me for paint him in my Uncharted fan comic. I don't know how thank you. Only I can say you must have a very special talent to capture people's face and translate them in figures. Few people know it and I'm very impressed. Congratulation for all your works
This is incredible. Very worthy of the Man of Steel. And the final statue looks absolutely superb.
It's a given that anything you craft will look perfect - having your work delivered straight to my deviantart inbox was the best decision ever.
Do you have any particular methods of photographing your pieces? I've only done one head sculpt so far, and it's no where near as refined and brilliant as yours, but I still feel it looks a lot better in person. I can't seem to capture it properly in photographs. And help you could give would be great! Thanks!
Oh yes...photographs. You will have a love hate relationship with photographs. They are a tricky thing to get right, and they almost never represent the sculpture properly. Other times, they can make a decent sculpt look really good, though. So it can work in your favor.
For tips: try lighting your work from above, and see if you can put a light off to the side of your sculpture to bounce a highlight on the edge. Also try taking your photos from far back and zooming in, rather than up close. It reduces the 'fisheye' effect of being close.
Haha, ok. Well I guess I'll cross my fingers for the photos making them look really good! I'll definitely try out those tips and play around with the lighting to see what I can conjur. And of course, keep practicing my sculpting!! I'm looking forward to trying to turn a Harley Quinn/Poison Ivy drawing I've done into a sculpt. So far I've done little chibi characters and a head sculpt, so I'm looking forward to expanding on that.
