Ok, so I doubt any of you know me, Names Brian. I'm Nonies younger Cousin, Assuming you all know Nonie.
I'm a late bloomer for sculpture, Only started last year, and haven't had much practice. However I've come to like it more than any other medium for art. SO MUCH FUN!
Anyway to the point. I asked Nonie if i could do a Redo of one of her concepts called Fatty, because of all things I would give up everything to be a full time paid artist (Still need practice! I know!)
as seen here
Well I fiddle faddled, ignored the project for months, but now I've finally gotten around to it. So I figured I'd share it with a community of artists I have come to admire over the past couple years, kind of lurking in the shadows.
I had some technical difficulties. Lots of newb stuff such as lack of tools, baking too long... and one that I never even thought would be a problem. Mind you I've never actually done a complete sculpture using sculpy, so i'm still very XoX about everything... Oh did i mention that my macs camera will not go out of the mirror mode? so please be kind, the tentacles are the right way... just not my camera
Here we see the horror of baking sculpy for too long T____T
I apologize for the sizes of the images, my computer and camera hate me... all these images are on my mac, which does not have Adobe on it... and I can't for the life of me find a way to transfer files BACK to my pc from my mac... so frustrating...
Now here is the most terrible thing EVER... do not do this... I was NOT warned... T___T
I ended up filling in the cracks on Fatty above, which is fine, I used plumbers apoxy because it forms well and takes to the holes very easy without taking away from the sculpture... HOWEVER, the apoxy was a blue color, and my over baked fluffykin above was very dark and burnt...
IT LOOKED AWFUL
so I figured, I'd PRIMER him... do not do this... at least not with spray paint. It was BAD... the spray paint didn't want to stay at first... then i noticed when i picked him up that the chemicals in the spray paint were eating his feet!... I said it... EATING HIS FEET...
anway Here is the result. It ended up turning out better than I thought it would, not that my camera does any justice to it... bluring out details and everything... I SWEAR THEY ARE THERE... even the stitches!
I'm SORRY for the awful size... I have the camera of the devil... It can not decide what size images are going to be in... again I say I can't seem to get these on my pc so i can't change it.
