Auction Sculpture by MumboJumbo Auction Sculpture by MumboJumbo
Hi Hi wonderful People of the deviant world! I hope all is well! It's been way too long since I last updated...hope you forgive me! I'm back to it now and plan on sharing a lot more with you from now on!

I just got back from Paris, which I posted pics in my journal section! And Now I'm back to focusing on my sculpting! Please stay tuned for rough pics of David Cabrera's design that I
mentioned I was sculpting sometime in Feb. It's fun so
far! :)

This was a sculpture I did for a charity auction that I will elaborate on in detail at a later date.

It always feels good to be able to create something that is used to help out in the world!

My own design! No other drawings were used to inspire this, just a rough sketch from my own mind, which btw, was a pretty ridiculous sketch ;)

The idea behind this sculpture: This little guy's trying to use power to grow the plant...ther little guy on his head is holding a water canister that will be helping the plant grow. The concept of the piece is: Even though you might not have magical powers, there's always a way to help out.

Hope ya'll enjoy!

I just love his expression and posture - he really believes his magic is going to do the trick. The little guy on his head is a tad more practical, it shows in his expression as well. You really captured their spirits in this :D

Well hello there! I did use an armature for this creature...unfortunately I worked on him really fast that I didn't take pics of the full armature. I'll show you pics of the rough stages though :) Thanks for the comment!
