    "I'll show you, bird!"

    I love the idea and execution. Did you sew the clothing?

    amazing, love the concept and execution. great expression captured.
    has a very nice puppet animation film feel to it.

    could you recommend me some sculpting exercises? what i could try to practice. im currently studying art for video game/game design; i am quite familiar with poly modeling in maya, UVing, texturing and so on but i would like to get into sculpting as well.
    any beginners exercise you recommend? I would like to be able to do stuff like you are doing

    thank you

    Thank Gogojo, the clothes are the most dificult part, because i don´t know anything about sewing. Sometimes the size of the sculpture allows you to buy the clothes in a kidshop but not in this case so the best way i found was asking to a friend to sew the clothes for me.

    Hi Katzenminze ang thanks a lot for your words.
    As far as sculpting is concerned, i think there are no secrets, only work, work and work. In my case when i begin i used to read all the books i could find about modellind, casting molding, etc, and then try and try in my studio to get better results as times went by. Nowadays internet is a powerfull openbook where you can fin almost everything. But in my opinion, the best way to learn is trying to work as an assistant for a profesional sculptor.
    Is a very good shortcut (the otherway you waste a lot of time).

    I know how that is, I don't know how to use a sewing machine, only sewing by hand. It's also harder to get the texture of fabrics to translate to a smaller size without looking off, but you and your friend managed it. It's too bad I don't live closer to you, or else I could knit a sweater for your next one.

    Takes a few seconds to get, but then the penny drops...
    And a great sculpture becomes even nicer. Well done in capturing the frustation boiling over in most every commuting worker-man-bee.

    Thank you champloo, In this case i use poliuretan resin that can not b pigmented. So what i do first is to cover all the surface with white imprimation and then i finish the piece with oil paint (like iif i werw painting on a canvas) when it dries i aplly a matt barnish. That's all, i hope i have helped you.

    Wow, amazing, very humerous work. The tense in his neck and face are really expressive, only the upper arm seems to have less power than the rest.

    Is that bird poo that he's upset about? :d haha awesome simple but cool concept.
