spring and a storm by razimo spring and a storm by razimo
one time I tried to sing
about spring
and a storm
but you know
how it goes...

:XD: Man, will you just look at this nonsense. I shouldn't post things when I should be in bed, and especially not after I've gotten into the tea, but oh well. :heart:

Anyway sculpting is fun, I don't know that I'm good at it, but I enjoy it. My photography skills are as haphazard as ever, although of late they're helped somewhat by my not-awesome but super-forgiving digital camera.

This is, actually, a full-body pose; I'm only posting the shoulders because that's what I've worked on most, because I have a thing for clavicles, and a sweet, patient boyfriend that (mostly) gracfully endures having his chest poked and prodded. :3

Just like everyone else has said, it looks great. But, those eyes, they're so lifelike. Did you use a lighter clay or paint it, mayble the lighting? Anyhow, great work!

Ack! I mean, thank you! ^^; I meant to take this one down; I've worked on it SO much since.

And umm..... thank you for the very kind comment! I love comments, just like cookies; I nibble them so they last a long time. Delicious! :heart:


.... you're still here? Oh, you asked a question... you were waiting for me to answer it? Right.. well, would you think less of me if I told you that the eyes were, here, about 75% fake? ^^; They photographed terribly, so I photoshopped them.

In this pic:


...They are 100% real, just dark enough that you can't see how crappy they actually are. *G* They're just straight-pins, the kind with round plastic heads, stuck into the Sculpey. I cut the metal pin down so it wouldn't stick out of the back of his head, then I lightly drew a pupil and iris on with a very soft pencil.. my whole motivation was to get rid of the blank alien look, but it ended up looking rather cool! Cool, assuming you can't see them clearly. :lol: If you can, you'd see that they're really very blobby.

I hope I haven't ruined the magic for you! ^^; Thanks again for the kind words!
:O !!!!!
I am amazed and stunned! That is absolutely incredible! Great work, just... Wow. :o

Awwwww shucks!! ^^; Thank you very much!!! :heart: :heart: I've worked rather a lot on the sculpture since I posted this; I've been trying for, uh.. maybe a month?.. to bounce up the courage to post it again... I'm happy enough now that I just might do it!
Oh! Yes, please do! I'm quite awful at working with my hands when it comes to clay and the like, I tried it once and my teacher suggested I just stick with drawing and design... rofl. But if I could, I would love to learn to sculpt.

I'm interested in the recent progress! :D
Oh and you're welcome :)
Hmmm... That's some boyfriend you have there, Ms. Razimo. ^^

Okay, I don't dare laugh; because... in a manner of speaking, I...

.. :XD:

.... well, two things: This isn't a portrait of my boyfriend, although I have talked him into growing his bangs out. (Hell yes! :D ) .. however, he gets credit anyway for amiably enduring having his joints prodded and muslces pondered over, until I could figure out how to sculpt This or That bit. Boyfriend, let me look at your elbow; boyfriend, let me poke at your clavicles; etc.
And now he comes to life (so to speak). *g* I've watched this come from the most simple trunk with four appendages to this and it still amazes me.

And to think it's ...oops, HE is your first attempt at this! :glomp: Sib rules!!

He's lovely, but share the rest of him!! :D :love:
