Took the grass skirt off this week. Decided that no matter how well I got it rendered, the shape and placement was always going to suggest wings. Not what I had in mind at all. Going to experiment with a buffalo-type hide instead.
I got these images from the sculpture in front of the Philadelphia Museum of Art. One of those beautifully rendered, totally forgettable sculptures that dot the urban landscape, and which I have come to respect, if not love.
I think the textures are particularly well done on this one, and not having a buffalo handy, I decided to use these for reference.
So, got home early from work today. Had 30 minutes in the studio. Being a sculptor with two kids and a full time job means you gotta be quick. Ask Darla.
Going back to the tinfoil. Makes it look insulated.
