Many, many hours and she is coming along...

I am still working on the left arm and hand and then will move to the right arm and hand. I hope you like her.

I had time to sculpt!

I had time to sculpt today and that doesn't happen often! After about five hours, this is what I have to show for my day. The pictures are not very clear, but it is late, so I don't have natural light to work with.

New Beginnings

I have decided to set my ruined sculpt aside and work on another that has been in my heart ever since a friend, that I have know for years but yet to meet, posted a picture of her little girl longingly watching her older sisters dance on pointe. She named her picture "Pining for Pointe" and has graciously given me permission to give my sculpt the same name.

I hope you enjoy following my on my journey of Pining for Pointe...

I have pictures that I have from the internet that I am using for reference but will not be posting them due to not wanting to inadvertanly infring on copywrite laws. Now that I have my references the next step are the armatures. They were finished yesterday.

The little girl is going to be kneeling on a bench, looking in at the older dancer.

If at first you don't succeed, cry.

I have been working and working. Today I put him in the over and I burned him. I melted him so bad that his little clay butt stuck to the oven and his foot just fell off. His hands burned the most. I was just heartsick.
