Tortured faerie

Postby saevilarvae@gmail.com » Thu Jun 06, 2013 6:18 pm

I plan to fill in the hollows, and wetbrush the silver, wiping the raised clean. antiquing the metal also, lots more tubes,
It is going to be floating in a glass box, filled with water, or oil, and illuminated.

I'm giving you a total 'Wowser' on this beauty
but I continue to implore you to take nice, clean, close-up shots.
Your work is very intricate and I'd like to be able to view each part and piece.
Stephen, I'm gonna stay on you about this!!!!! Thank You, E

This is great. We are big fans of sculptures. Love the metallic look.

I am not commenting on the sculpture.
Just something Im flagging up I wished I had been told once and may have no bearing here - but if you were to turn to commercial possibilities, how would the work replicate. Here I am thinking of the moulds and casting and it looks a nightmare

No this piece would not be considered for commercial potential, there are alot of surfaces that hold symbolic personal signifigance like the sea shells incorporated into the arms andbody, the tail "fins" are sections of a feather, and the sum of the mermaid half, is all finely worked metal plates that had once been a finger sheath ring. , If I where to reproduce this piece as a production piece, I would definetly know where to cut down the dimensions, detail, surface tensions etc. etc. Thank you for your intelligent critique style, I find it refreshing to be subject to what I percieve as profesional opinions.

Stephen, I now understand. But. A camera is essential for showing your work.
You can go to Wal-marts and pick up something decent for around $100 bucks.
Beg, borrow or steal the money (or a camera). This something you absolutely must do. E

Yes, a nice, interesting artwork. However I agree that a digital camera is a must if you are to show off your works.

God bless.
