So, this is my version of what I could remember from what Don Caldwell made in the Jam room. His dogs were some of the most awesome balloon dogs I have ever seen. Each one of them had an amazing personality that you could just read in their faces.
This week, I finally was able to sit down and try to recreate what I remembered of his puppies.
This is what I came up with. After finishing it, I decided that it was the eyebrows that I like the most...
So, I decided I was going to take Robbie Furman's advice and make a bird. And to top that, I was going to make a bird that had the AWESOME eye brows that Don's dog had.
This is what I came up with.
It has a similar face to the dog and then I used a similar technique to that of my rose t make the body and wings for it. Overall, I liked it quite a bit.
However, the body looked like it could be something else to me...
And that's where this guy came from!
Actually, I tried to make a Lamb first, but it looked horrible. Lucky for me, I was able to see the face of a turtle in it. And, sticking to the theme of "personality," I had this turtle become old with age and despiration as it constantly chased that perpetual apple on a stick.
For Contrast, and so I could show off one more photo, I added this guy in here.
This is a fairly intricate sculpture that I made recently and I (later) noticed that it has a very neutral look to it.
So, my next challenge is to make a pirate with attitude.
Next time I am asked for a pirate and have time to experiment, I will be adding that to my photos and making an update to this post. Keep out a ready eye. We'll see if I can twist up another treasure yet... ;-)
