...even the back is pretty.
|I'm still about half finished but here is my latest Pics...
|For my base (also not finished) I have started sculpting my Finger & Cabbage Corals which will sit on black granite.
|Sooo much work to do...a lot of smoothing out, filling in and tweaking.
|Well after another three days of work...he's starting to take shape but he's a long way off from being completed. I know I have at least a week of just cleaning him up. More later...
|May 6th 2011...I started on the side fins yesterday...and I now know why I haven't seen but a few bronze Lionfish sculptures especialy realistic ones...all I can say is that this is tough to do!
|This is about 3 days of work but he is starting to take on a bit of personality.
|Don had to make a wooden cradle for this guy, he's about 15" long and starting to take shape.
|Getting better at sculpting him, it's a bit different from sculpting jewelry but I'm enjoying this project. Today I'll be working on adding some more personality to his fins. The part that makes me a bit nervous at this point is the side fins...the part that makes him so unique.
|I'm sculpting this guy based on around 100 photos and this is the main photo...this is what the end product to look like.
|...and this is what the side fins will look like. Needless to say, I want to get as much practice in before I attempt these awesome fins.
