A little metal work

I did a little work on the gorgets and nose ring/ornament a few days ago. There is just a color or two that needs to be added to punch it up a bit more. A little more color was added to the skin areas also. I hope to have this done by the weekend, but I know better. lol

Work in progress detail of Bear in the fort

Busy busy busy

My first oil painting is coming along okay. Though it's not yet finished there are a few things I'll do differently on the next one. The big thing is I'm not going to try and work so fast. In the process of painting this it's clear the subject deserves to be done larger than 6" X 6". Photographing a wet oil painting is pretty tough, so if it looks a bit funky it's because of the sheen. Only three of the fifty or more photos I took survived. So here is the unfinished painting.

I'm also putting together the first posting for my sculpting blog which should be up some time tomorrow. Fun fun fun.

The small study of the Indian wearing the bearskin has been started. It's definitely different than working with acrylics. Seeing that it's my first attempt it's too soon to say I like it better than acrylics.

My sculpting blog should be active by Saturday. Though I have other projects in the latter stages of completion I really need to get this thing (the blog)going. I'll still post some step by step stuff on Planet figure and possibly Timelines, but it will not be as in depth as what will be on my blog.
