    Find The Stone...

    I've been re-inspired by some of the stone work that I've seen in here lately. I'll put in some of my other sculptures in this thread in the future. For now, I need som help with this piece that I haven't worked on since last summer. I got stuck and need some direction. I want to keep the one side unfinished to give this the look that he is emerging from the stone, but I'm stuck on the legs, this part just looks like crap and I can't figure a way around it, so any comments would be appreciated. This is soapstone, by the way.

    Hi Madplanet,
    Just seen your thread and Wimpo's, sketching over photos of your image might be a good way to kickstart the imagination again, especially if you have been laying off it for a while. And it may help you resolve what to do with the legs.
    Which part do you want to leave unfinished?
    It's looking interesting so far, let's see how it progresses, it's just too easy to leave stuff unfinished.
    (I don't envy you having to carve that face from that angle ! Good luck.)

    Very nice pose,

    my tip:

    just draw over the image (in photoshop) and don't be afraid to cut to deep.
    Try new angles(cuts) and see what the result is. If it is to deep , no problem,
    try to look at it a different way and work on that.
    just sculp A LOT !

    keep up the good work !

    Robo_3: Thanks for the advice, I will do that to work out just what to do with the leg, I hate that part and it needs fixing bad. The part that I want to leave unfinished is the part in the last pic, the area facing us. It just looks too good to eliminate.

    Wimpos: I'm a bit too nervous to cut too deep, because I could just see it cracking in half! But, then again, that's how we learn, right? Thanks for the tips, you got me inspired to work in stone again after seeing your work.

    Hopefully, the weather will break here and I can get back out to the garage to hack away and I can show my progress.

    While I'm still working on the previous piece, I thought I'd post some of my other sculptures to see what you all think. This first one was done a couple of years ago in alabaster. I went with the stone on this one and that's why it's kind of a strange image.




    This was done in super sculpey and painted in acrylic.

    Hey Tim, thanks for checking this out. It took awhile, but here is a little update on the soapstone piece. I decided to solve my problem about the leg by tucking it under the thigh. I still don't know what to do about that chunk right in front of the leg, so any comments on that would be appreciated. I've worked on this for the last three days and it doesn't seem like much because I'm into the details. I'm fleshing out the fingers on the knee and getting at the face. The face isn't impossible, but it is difficult and time consuming. I'm farther on it since these photos were taken. I'm having fun, so more pics soon.
