Valentine WIP

I've been working on this love struck heart man off and on for the past few days.
The bad pic doesn't reveal much about him, but we don't want to spoil the fun do we?As far as I can remember, I've never made a Valentine's sculpture in the past. I suppose that makes this guy kind of special! Can't wait to get him painted.

I also have a few little heart ornaments in the works, so keep an eye out for them.

Sorry for the lack of updates. Steph and I have been busy Christmas shopping and celebrating her graduation.

This Christmas season has been so much fun artistically. Spookytime Jingles has been a blast. I've met tons of great people through the site, including its talented artists and the wonderful customers who have bought from me. Its very refreshing to see that the world is full of good people. Thank you all.

I haven't done much sculpting lately, but I do have some new sketches ready to come to life in January. See you soon!

Look Who Graduated!

Congratulations to my wonderful fiance, Stephanie, who graduated Saturday from Stephen F. Austin State University. She earned her bachelors of Science and Mathematics degree. More specifically she's a probability and statistics whizz.

I'm amazed at how anyone can make this accomplishment, especially with her difficult major. I'm very proud of her. Now for grad school!

^^ There she is with her proud fiance (me!)^^

Elf WIP and a new Poll

I usually don't remember to take WIP shots until the sculpting is almost finished, but here's an earlier view of this piece. This design has been very ambitious and challenging from the beginning, but it has proven a blast to create.
You'll just have to use your imagination to fill in the gaps, he still has a long way to go before completion!
Also, I am tyring to get some new ornaments ready for etsy. Hopefully I can finish this guy within the next couple of days and get back to them. I'll keep you posted.
