Re: What do ya all look like?

Am I ? How come I'm not aware of this.

Last time when I teach, I was the stiff no-nosense type. When I tried to crack a joke, students write it down. Perhaps this is because it didn't sound like one

But Scout, you haven't shown us what do you look like, have you ?

Re: What do ya all look like?

Merlion, I did post a funny pic of me in there somewhere. Here's a serious one. I don't have one of me sculpting but I have one with some of my paintings. You look like a very nice, focused and kind man. It's nice to know you. Scout

You are a funny guy Merlion! I'm always taking work in progress pictures of the sculpture but not of me with the sculpture. Probably because I look my worst when I'm sculpting! Just let it all go and focus on the work itself. But I'll just have to take a pic soon and add it to the bunch of pics here.(clothed! )

These are some great photos that you all are posting. I love getting to see what you look like.

Saul was a persecutor of Christians and even had a part in stoning Stephen to death until he became a Christian himself and then his name was changed to the Apostle Paul. He then was one of the most zealous and loving apostles. So the countenance really shows his gentle side, although, I would have thought him to have more of a determined fire in his eyes. In any case, it's a wonderful sculpture. Very impressive.
Chashad and Tamara: The expression of Saint Paul does change depending on how it is lit. From underneath, as in the photo, the smile is emphasized. Lit from above as intended, it has a more classic and strong look, with the smile hinted at. The smile is mostly felt through the eyes. It is hard to overemphasize the importance of lighting when placing a sculpture. I brought the wax head to the site and worked on it from a ladder 14 feet above the floor in order to adjust the effects in the light of its setting.
As I meditated at great length on how to depict his expression, I focused on the great zeal and love he had, and dedication to truth, as he would brave going day after day to unfamiliar places, facing getting stoned or thrown out of town, because he wanted to share the message of Christ with which he was on fire. Consider how much love he must have had to persevere in that environment.
Also, as another consideration, churches are often full of stern looking apostles and patriarchs that may not be very welcoming to people. On the other extreme is overly soft looking Jesus faces that lack the strength that he had. Stern has its place, but for me Love is the most compelling.
BTW, I'm thrilled that the discussion of the photo went to my sculpture rather than my face, since that is what really matters.

Re: What do ya all look like?

GlennT, I like the gentle, knowing and confident look he has. I went to a Catholic school and I have seen enough stern faces. Can we see the whole piece in place? Scout

Re: What do ya all look like?

Scout; Here is a scanned photo from a holy card with the statue. Sorry about the quality. I tried submitting another photo here but the file size was too large. The Cathedral is beautiful but the lighting on the piece is not ideal, too dim, so it is difficult to get a good photo. I went in with a professional photographer later for a page in the Guild Sourcebook 17. Because of the height of the piece we could only add lighting from below. I got a good clear picture but the face does not look at all like I intended. The holy card shows the correct angle of light, just not enough of it to illumine all the features.

Re: What do ya all look like?

GlennT, I found if you send yourself an e-mail with the photo attached, it will resize it (will ask you what size probably) Then save it to your files and it's ready to send us. Try that, I'd like to see a good photo. Also photoshop can fix your lighting problem. Scout

While I totally hate the religious aspect and everything to do with religion (Im 100% agnostic) man, this is a stunningly excellent sculpture Glenn!! The larger head shot shows the head well enough to see this is top notch work. Outift I work for put an organ up there at St Pauls Episcopal, probably a stone's throw away.

Re: What do ya all look like?

Scout: I followed your instructions and the images were resized, but when I saved them they became large files again. Not being a computer genius, I had to call a halt after a number of attemps. If you will send a priveate email with your email address, I will forward some better photos.

Landseer: Thanks! Quite a compliment coming from an agnostic! Even if you find religion distasteful, you must acknowledge the key role it has played in history as a supportor the arts. Except for some maniacs like the Taliban which supports the destruction of the arts, or Savonorola who supported the burning of the arts. BTW, You would have to have a very strong arm to throw a stone from the Cathedral of Saint Paul to the Episcopal church, which is in Minneapolis. What did you do at the organ company, sculpt the pipes?

Chashab: Sorry I spelled your name wrong in an earlier post. My late night typing skills marg nop slo gloob.

That usually only works with ISP's like AOL because of their proprietary software- the same software that allows you to see the read/trashed status of your recipients (provided they too are on AOL) as well as format the background image/colors, script fonts, bold, colored fonts and include inline resized images etc.
Most ISP's and email software don't transfer all that gobble-de-gook, it all goes as plain ASCII text sans the colors and gorgeous looking script fonts, while some of it goes out as a page or two of included trash that comes as messed up wannabe html like this from one lady that *IS* on AOL and every time she mails me on my NON AOL acct I get two paragraphs of this in part, stuck in the middle of her messages;

Probably my best feature..........actually my foot is in the pic only to show the true color of the sawdust. Bois D'Arc truly is golden wood.

Re: What do ya all look like?

Yeah .... Joe! If you haven't had any compliments in a while, here's one... you look like a smart guy and distinguished with the salt and peppered hair. And you're cuter than your DOG! (Now is that a compliment.. hmmm... I'm cuter than my dog....) Actually your dog is adorable too- love that curly hair on him.

Thanks for sharing a real photo cuz now I know who Joe is! And a nice guy I'm sure.

Re: What do ya all look like?

Why thank you Tamara. That is the nicest compliment I've received--cuter than my dog. You don't know how significant that is. He rides in the back of my truck and every day, many times a day people stop me to pay him compliments. We (Max and me) are about the same age and height, but he gets all the attention and compliments. Max does make it up to me so I won't feel bad. As far as being smart, well its probably a tie there too. He's the smartest dog I've known, while I'm not the smartest person I know. But, he can't use tools, and I have tons of those. Joe

p.s. you're kinda cute and smart looking too

Re: What do ya all look like?

I'm sure I had you built up for more. So here's the let down. Slow and easy. Don't look at me all at once. If you start to feel a little queezy turn off your monitor and go directly to your cupboard and take a dose of Pepto Bismol. My wife says it works for her.

Re: What do ya all look like?

At first I didnít know if I liked the idea of loosing my anonymity, it is very safe to hide behind the computer screen. I see there are a few other people who are shy, only exposing a foot or their dog. Yet I did really enjoy seeing what everyone and their dog looked like so I though that I had better participate. I donít have a dog, so I was looking for a picture of myself working so that you all wouldnít think that I just hang around on this forum.
