well,good news and semi good news!
luke warm news first : ive been busy. i got the sculpture of st margaret bourgeoys done, i may post a photo in future if i can stand to look at it for more then 5 min. -it turned out well, im just sick of it haunting my art room and "to-do" list.
i have 2 bits actually, 1, is that the mysterious box full of art supplies that went missing when we moved? FOUND IT! *image of me cuddling large war-torn box covered in paint smudges here* i had so much stuff in this box including a tin with miniature butterfly jars, a good deal of character sketches and this strange collection of drawing implements that normally hang out in my desk but i never really use, and yet keep... im sure you have some of those too. HAY dont lie! i know you do. yes you do. YES YOU DO! ok fine.
the 2nd bit( it gets better!) is that i have been working on other sculptures DIGITAL SCULPTURES! --i keep wanting to say" ive been sculpting in 3D" because of watching waaaay too many movies-- but since i normaly sculpt, in 3D because its a sculpture, this is a pointless and confusing thing to say.
SO ive been sculpting characters in Sculptris, its a pretty nice program although it does tend to give the prosessor in the laptop a bit of a herneia every time i go about 250,000 poly..er..triangles - basically the little bits that make up the 'mass' of the digital clay you sculpt with, the more of those the more detail/information. but thats because this laptop is old, so oh well i just keep a watch on how much i have then de-res it when needed.
with this im currently doing a little bit of a project with my friend, and i'll post more on it later if it works out for us.
for now, i'll upload some of the test/quick sculptures ive done
