do you really expect us to believe that this is only your second sculpting project?! cyclops
if this is what you do as a beginner, i can't wait until you're experienced!

you are an amazingly talented artist!

ah, but you see, i don't believe that's really your first project! Razz jocolor

when you posted your zoo sketches (rhinos cheers ) you mentioned studying architecture. Are you an architect? That on top of your artistry would explain why you take so well to 3 dimensional work.

thank you so much for sharing!! sunny

Yes Carolynn, I'm architect (those days when I went to the zoo to taking sketches of the animals are a little bit far Wink ) and I try to share my work with my hobby Razz

You wouldn't say the same if you saw me with my friends Razz Thank you for your comments, I will start thinking on the next one.
