Tried to leave a comment earlier but it didn't seem to stick?
Anyway, was going to say that I really love this piece. I was curious as to how you made the sword look so good though. Did you make the sword separately and then fuse it his hand for the perfect fit? Something so thin and detailed like that would seem hellish to try and make.
So, how did you get the sword to look so good? Especially at that angle, that seems like it'd be hell to sculpt; plus it's so thin too. Did you make it separately and then fuse it to his hand for the perfect fit? I love this piece by the way
I love this one. I love the whole Ebony Vision series in fact but this one is my favourite. I like the fact you depict african people instead of western ones, I seldom see that. And I like even more the irony of putting this one in a western setting. I want to see even more!
I have tried the "prosculpt", but not with the results I wanted - it was so soft, I didn't care for it. Is the super sculpey that much harder, or do I need to face the fact....Maybe I just stink at this.....
This is a superb piece, my friend. I love the level of detail that you put into three dimensions, I love the silent strength that the knight expresses, but most of all, I love the contrast of cultures, and the fact that you make them look like they belong together. There's a lot of symbolism in this piece, and I applaud your effort.
When I was sculpting it the working title was 'Black Night'. But since you brought this up I just looked at the production samples I get and on the bottom side of the base where all the information is BAM! they actually named it "Dark Knight" and I used the wrong "night" in the first place. Thanks for bringing this to my attention.
woooowwwww, so your part of my inspiration, I guess its fair to say your one of the reasons I decided to take sculpture classes in scholl, hey thanks,...you also help he w/my anatomical, texture and drapery studies, thanks again
