Sculpting again – Centaur sculpt

April 23rd, 2008 by Gerald

I took a break from sculpting for awhile so that I could let my batteries recharge (sometimes life gets a little too busy ;-) ).  I’ve picked back up with a sculpt I started last summer and I’m pretty excited to see how this one ends up looking (I usually make things up as I go so my original sculptures never end up looking exactly like the original design/concept). 

Right now I’m pretty much focusing on fantasy pieces since that is where my real interest lies.  I have a couple other non-fantasy pieces that I need to finish (cowboy, african woman) but it will probably be awhile till I get around to them.  The fantasy sculptures really get the creative juices flowing so for me that is the main reason why they are such a blast create.

That being said, my latest piece is of a centaur shooting a bow in arrow.  I still have a ways to go on this piece but have included a couple work-in-progress photos below.

Introduction

First of all I would like to welcome you to my blog. If you haven’t had a chance to read my “about me” page, my name is Gerald Gore and I am a self-taught artist. The goal of this blog is to not only post some of my latest works, I also plan to include some work-in-progress photos to give an idea on how I take a sculpture from concept to completion.   For those of you interested in learning more on the creation process of my art, I do have a sculpting tutorial site at www.polymerclayfan.com.

All the best,
Gerald
