Niko...

Posted by Arna:

I did this two years ago in a sculpting class at the Toronto School Of Art. The model's name was Niko. I think I spent about four, three-hour sessions on the piece. He's just a little smaller than life size, made with Tucker's low fire white clay.

After I took this shot, I cut the head in half and hollowed it out. Then I put the head back together. He's been lying around since then, because we had no facilities to fire him. Now, I'm hoping to finally see it finished. A kind instructor at Central Technical School offered to fire him! Can't wait to see how he turns out...

Beautiful sculpt Arna! Love how you lit it for the photo too. Solid all around (well, as solid as hollow is.....) Maybe you should get Donald Trump to fire him, and I'm sure he'll do it for free!

(Insert rim shot here....or booos, whichever. I didn't get too much sleep last night.)

Really cool Arna...been thinking of trying this out for a little while now, you just convinced me I should get off my lazy ass and do it!
Cheers

I don't think I ever saw a photo of this finished, it's beautiful, and the b/w shot is lovely in itself. SL is well, hope you guys are, have a good weekend.

Thanks, Jez. Sculpting helps to balance work in the animation biz.

Smook. No boos, that's a cute li'l old joke. Do get some sleep!

Daniel, Hi! Thanks for stopping by. Start a blog too so we can see your sculpts!

Clive, Thanks! I also like the black and white. There is an archival feeling to images captured in black and white.

Cheers.
