Re: schooling?

Alan that is a very touching piece. And I doubt I will forget it.

I am talking about Alan Henderson's "signifer"
http://www.hendersonsculpture.com/signifer.htm

Polymer clay artist that will be financially and gallery wise successful are rare. Just a few minutes ago one of my other forum contact forwarded this link because of the videos on it but it is the gallery I think would be the most instructive for my use.
Most exceptional work.

The Creagers acheive what fine portrait artist strive for, not only accuracy but capturing the moment as well as the strengths of the subject that could easily be missed by most observers in the flesh.

Re: schooling?

That is an incredible work, Alan! I would love to see it on a large-scale. Already at only 20 inches it conveys a beautiful monumentality.

Speaking of money.... I would like to upscale certain small works, like many sculptors. In fact many are made as proposals but like many autoworkers I can't afford the cars I make. This one actually resembles some of your work, in a very loose way, which probably explains why I like yours so much.

Note the variety of finishing on my rough piece (simple acrylics with a brush) and the Elves (very subtle forms and colouring) and Dolls (I'd put those dolls in any gallery any day). Also note how sophisticated the construction is on these examples. Again if time and money are tight these clays are a great way to go.

LOL! So many of a sculptor's choices are determined by practical considerations. But we're starting to get dangerously off-topic here. Post some work down in the Images Gallery sometime, Alan.
