Help Me Choose Which Idea to Sculpt

 

 

Sheep Plaque Sketch

 

Which one to Make?  Help me decide….

Sometimes making miniatures as sketches can be fun and helpful.  I don’t always make these sketches but when I do it helps me see how the image will translate 3 dimensionally, how things will overlap.  I will do a tiny thumbnail drawing, but it doesn’t help me understand the volume and overlap.   When I start sculpting everything just comes together.  Currently I have about a dozen of these little “sketches in clay” on my desk.  I really enjoy sculpting in this scale.

Which one to make?   I have created two tiny sculptures of sheep.  ”A” is more contemporary and graphic, while ”B” is quite traditional.  Both will have an interesting wool texture when complete.  I would love help in choosing which to sculpt & you may be the WINNER of a full size version by casting your vote.  Simply choose either ”A” or ”B”.  A name from the winning group will be selected at random and a finished plaque hand signed by me will be sent to one lucky person when completed. To vote please go to https://www.facebook.com/CarruthStudio and post your vote.  Thanks, this should be fun for all of us! George

  1. I clicked on that http://www.facebook.com for the contest but can not find where to vote and I’m not on Facebook. The choice is easy though B is the one, So I vote for B.
    Another thing, when I signed up for your catalog the how did you hear about us part is lacking. It should have an other, because none that are listed aply to me. I bought a face awhile back at Franks Nursury and I was looking for another when I stumbled on your site.

    I really enjoy my Saint Fiacre statue gracing my garden trellis upon which I grow my hop vines. But I wanted to suggest your consideration of Saint Arnold, the patron saint of brewers, sometimes portrayed with a mash rake in hand, but I think a goblet of fine Belgian beer in one hand and a bible in the other would make a great interpretation and appeal to all of us out there with Man-caves. I’d love to see you sculpt Saint Arnold in the style of Saint Fiacre. Thanks for sharing your talent and humor.
