sculpting blog

sculpt work for clients and sale.
See my illustration blog at http://findphil.tumblr.com/

Starting an illustration blog today, as this one gets sidelined when I am working on illustrations for clients. This way I can hop back and forth depending on what I am working on so it doesn’t seem like I just dropped off the earth.

After much painting and stripping (5 times). I went back to my original idea of a bronze finish. In color, it rode the line from cartoon, to creepy, to toy. As a bronze, it’s a statue/trophy. Best of both worlds.
It was the subject matter that caused the problem. I think I could have swung it several ways with the paint if it wasn’t a clown, but sometimes you just have to make an executive decision on how it’s going to go.
Client was excited and happy with the change. It looks more like a showpiece than a toy. :)

after seeing this, I think I may have to break his head off and reposition it lower. It also seems a bit small. urgh! Tomorrow’s problems…

Robots 2 show is cancelled, but on the upside, I now have time to change a few things I was going to have to let go. 
Second pic is the clown I am doing for “Ricker’s gas stations”. Been working on the base for a day or so. Got some clown parts done.

Robot update Going with Jason Freeny style guts in the chest cavity. Clean and not gruesome.

Started working in earnest on my sculpts again. I need to get the clown done as well as a robot for the ROBOTS2 show. Both in December.
The race is on.
