My nieces were playing with some sculpting clay so I made a small model of the little boy in my recent story with his blanket. It takes 5 days or so to dry and I'll paint it with some acrylics. Should be fun!
I've been sketching A LOT lately. Mostly because it seems like the more I sketch the better I improve as an artist. I've never been one to sketch much, but I'm changing that. It's like doing scales on the piano or drills in soccer.
Whimsical or more realistic? ARGH...it's ok, the decision making isn't driving me batty (actually it is). I know they both could work. The question is which I would enjoy the most. That's what's important to me.
