I made this in my Sculpture 1 class, the assignment was personal mythology/self portrait, and it had to be based on a human bust in some way.
It's almost 3ft tall and was painted with acrylics using the dry brush method. I had references for the head, but I didn't find any decent ones for the torso,
so I kind of struggled with the human anatomy.
It's apparently really hard to get turn-around shots of the female body.
I apologize for the weird presentation, these photos where taken in front of a bright red wall and there was work from other students in the background, so I did my best to edit that out.
That's why there's a red glow.
I started out here (AAU) in the Illustration department, but I'm switching to Sculpture. I had more fun working on this then I have on any painting or drawing, and it was a lot easier too.
I might go the fine art/illustrative route with my sculpture, but I'm not sure. There's still a ton of different mediums and techniques that I've yet to try.
Anyway, my instructor thinks I'm could start putting stuff in galleries if I wanted to, but I don't know about that.
I heard that I can get a lot of really detailed and honest critique here, so I was just wondering what some of you thought.
This is very cool, and has a lot of personality. Very well done.
Yes, the slit throat is supposed to represent sacrifice, and the symbol on her head is a wolfsangel, and old Germanic rune that is now used to symbolize "overcoming opposition".
This a very good piece. Disturbing but that aside, I think you did a great job on the deer face and head, very good likeness. You will find that most of us here are like you...tried the other arts and have decided that sculpting is a much better fit. Good luck in your schooling and your career. Have fun.

I like the texture and the paint. If you're having trouble finding references I find that stock photography sites are a great help. I use gettyimages.com a lot. Hope that helps.
