Working title is “Self Portrait XIII”, but maybe I’ll call it “Surly II” when its finished – which it nearly is.

Self Portrait XII, Update #1

January 14th, 2014 · No Comments

I had a pretty fantastic beard for the last half of 2013, and felt it needed to be immortalized in a drawing, so that’s what this portrait will eventually represent. Beard awesomeness.

The first person that makes a “Duck Dynasty” reference gets a punch in the nose. Just fair warning.

Grimmy, finished … but badly.

December 18th, 2013 · No Comments

I really wish I hadn’t painted him. And then glazed him. I’m going to stop doing that … I hate the way they end up looking. The clean, matte finish of baked sculpey is so much more appealing.

Finished sculpture of a gargoyle named Grimmy Bignose

The reason I painted him gray in the first place was because I have a can of textured spray paint that is supposed to make things look like stone, but there was too much texture, and after applying it there was a tremendous loss of detail. So, I cleaned it all off and in a fit of “eh, screw it” I glazed him. I regret not leaving well enough alone and leaving him as he was when he came out of the oven.

Oh well.
