Thought I'd better get my entry in while I was thinking about it.


Wee Willy goes in the self portrait category.  He was built using the Chris Walas technique, meaning Sculpy over an aluminum foil armature. 











Now THAT'S impressive.

Thank you for the positive comments. I think I've demonstrated here that the self image I sometimes carry in my head doesn't quite match the image I carry on my aching feet.
Thanks again
Gene Walker

Now, is that what psychiatrists call "cognative desonance"?

Hello Richard

Would it be possible to get another added delay to the contest ?     I know, I know, I sound a bit like when I was in school......./DesktopModules/NTForums/themes/mls/emoticons/blush.gif     But for once, I am on the right way with this project, I would like to finish and present it........    The head is done , the body is positioned and filling up.     But I won't have enough time to detail and paint it for the 25th.......    So a bit more time would be welcomed....


Thanks, Gaétan

I'm done so it doesn't matter to me what the deadline is. The idea of prompting more people to do figures is the most important part of this.

Unless I hear otherwise from other entrants, I'm going to extend the deadline to Feb 1s and Feb 7 will be the cutt of on scoring pieces.

Hello all!

I finally got enough time away from the hospital (Dad's surgery) and work to post these. I'm grateul for the extensions.

My nine-year-old daughter suggested a while back that she would like it if I made a sculpture of the two of us. She loves to fish, so I thought that could be the subject.

I had no idea how small her head would be in 1:20.3!

Anyway, last night (before the pictures were taken, of course) my seven-year-old broke the cane pole I had carved out of butternut. I figured if I waited until I carved another it would never get posted, so instead I am holding a broken stick in our picture.:rolleyes: I told her that it was a fantasy scene, not just because we were wearing turn of the century clothes, but because she was worming her own hook, something she has never done.:)
I kept hoping it would get warm enough to take the pic at the neighbor's pond, but that never happened./DesktopModules/NTForums/themes/mls/emoticons/doze.gif
These two would never have been born if it weren't for the time Chris Walas took to post his instructions.;)
