Sandman Bust by captain-amazing Sandman Bust by captain-amazing
i have't really sculpted before, and i've not had much time to work on it, so it ended up taking much longer than i thought it would. but i'm glad i did it, because now i have that thing in the picture :)

i made it because i don't really like the existing official Sandman sculptures/models. plus they're REALLY expensive. so i decided to try and make my own :D

i've also decided not to paint it because it reminds me of an old marble sculpture this way (which sort of suits), and i'm not yet confident enough in my ability to paint 3D objects. for now anyway :P

made from clay.

sorry about the photo :|






the character (Dream) is copyright Neil Gaiman.
the design is mine.

ha yeah, i originally planned to do a mold of this, even just to try painting it without ruining the original. but i'm pretty sure his hair makes that impossible.
meanwhile it makes a nice bookend for MY absolute sandman volumes :D

contours were difficult, i wanted it to look like one of my drawings from any angle you view it - a more difficult undertaking than i thought it'd be :D

the pose was more difficult to do than i initially thought it would be, because i couldn't just rub out a line to adjust it :D
