Saint Nick

I went ahead and participated in the 3dTotal forum sculpting contest for xmas. There usually are like 4-10 really epic entries, but so far there are only about 2, so maybe I have a shot! The contest is open to literally anyone, so it's cool to see the different levels of experience. Plus, I can give some tips or advice if anyone has trouble getting something to look right, or how to use certain tools. Anyways:



The first pass was going to be wooden, like a folk art ornament, but I got some advice from Bryan Wynia.



And BAM! totally different character. This was a great exercise and I can't wait for the next one!



Coming soon: A rhino, a bear, 2 robots, and figure studies

Hey Andrew,
I feel like I've been being sort of short with people on the blogs lately, so I just wanted to leave you a message and let you know how much it means to me that you check by so often. It's awesome man, and I will try to leave more comments on your blog in the future.

Happy New Year,
Joe

Your Santa did turn out really good. Your sculpts most certainly keep getting better and better. I hope you win something this time, you deserve it!
