|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.
|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.
