I'm slowly coming back to the usual two posts by week rate, I'll try to keep it up. First thing you may have noticed is that I (finally) changed the header. It was long time needed, I know. What I had was a temporary solution (well, it was in my mind!), but you know, there is nothing as permanent as the temporary...
This new one pretends to be just another temporary solution until I make some other experiments (so I guess you can expect it to be there for another two or three years, ha!), this was just to help me finding a drawing style and combining tools. The composition is quite awful, but I'll try to make it up, promise.
Ahem. Now to the real stuff.
Today I'm rescuing a treasure from oblivion which is quite dear to me. My friend Maria from MCC Arte sculpted this piece for me a few years ago. She's a talented amateur artist making her way out in the world of sculpting and airbrushing. I've encouraged her many times to keep on the path of the arts, but I'm afraid she's scattered through too many things in RealLifetm to focus on her production.
Anyway, back in 2011 when she was starting, she sculpted this Captain Malcom Reynolds for me:
I'm a huge fan of the Firefly universe, so when she gave me this I couldn't but squeak and jump, for me this was the coolest among the cool. It's made out of Sculpey and it's quite big, it's not made in any commercial scale.
|Now it was up to me making it resemble the real guy!|
|Sooo, slow step by step|
|No power in the 'verse can stop me!|
|Agh! I'm blind!|
|This was all I could achieve on the face|
|I got a base for the guy, this is the final result|
Being the gift it was, you can understand this piece is quite dear to me, as I told above, and I consider it a little treasure.
Go visit my pal's blog and encourage her to come back to production!
On my behalf I can only say that this is not the last Firefly related stuff you've seen here, but only the first... (Plans! I have lots of plans!)
