And I will sing, waiting for the gift of sound and vision... Special thanks to Sergei Rahkmaninoff and his incredible use of the Crystal Hau (which you can see here) for inspiration and Modalt Masks for the wonderful paint job on the Pakari.
During March i took part in the MocAthalon over at MocPages (kinda using it as a spur to get out of a building slump, really) One of the catagories i was handed was to build a life-sized bust of a real or fictional person. And can i just say, man was this catagory hard... special thanks to whoever thought this catagory up, i had a blast and wow, was i stretched as well! It was my partner who actually suggested i make a bust of David Bowie as she is a huge fan - initally i was dubious but then when i recalled the classic "Aladdin Sane" album cover, i thought, could i actually pull off that lightening bolt across his face? I didn't know.. and there was only one way to find out! ;) I had a hard time photographing this with all the brick shine - i knew i wanted some white background shots to recreate the album cover, but i actually thought it would pop better on black and give viewers a better idea of the sculpting involved. So, here is a full revoloution of Bowie on black: The side on angles were the least flattering and showed where i struggled the most with the anatomy. The face is far too flat and you can see how enlongated the head is. But hey, the Ziggy Stardust character is a kind of alien, right? (Ok, just covering my failings i know!) He really did have an epic mullet in those days. Business on top, party at the back! Well, that's it. C and C welcome as always. Thanks for looking peeps!
