If a tree falls in a forest and no one is there to hear it, does it make a sound? Or better yet, if there is art that is created with no one to enjoy it, is it still art? That is part of the mental trap that I had created for myself the past many years. I had fallen in the habit of just sculpting something for my own amusement, then I would quickly loose interest and move to the next one. One day I woke up and realized that I have over a dozen clay heads that are in desperate need of torsos. It's time for myself to complete my art , knowing how creepy it would sound if someone asked to see my work and the best response I would have is "Sure, come to my house and I'll pull all the heads out of the cabinet".Hopefully having a community to get feedback from and interact with will give myself the motivation and input to actually see my art to completion.

It's been roughly a month since my last journal update, but that doesn't mean I've been taking it easy when it comes to my sculpting.  In fact, I've been pushing myself to shake things up a bit...hence the title of my journal entry.  The sculptures leading up to my Sabretooth bust have a rather static and posed quality to them.  The bust was the first time I tried to incorporate a sense of action.  I was pleased that the dynamic quality of it broke me a bit out of my rut, but still left unfulfilled.  The next sculpture was my smaller scale figurative Gambit sculpture.  I took the element of flow I learned from the bust and incorporated extra depth by adding texture to the trenchcoat. This was a fun exercise to try and create a leather appearance to the clothing.
  The experimentation isn't limited to the sculptures themselves, but also the materials that I'm testing the waters with.  I had purchased both Casteline and Apoxie Sculpt online to get a sense of different materials other than Sculpy.  The downside is that I don't think I'm now or will ever be able to sculpt in a medium resembling wax.  It's a shame because I see the large community of sculptors who use wax and are able to do the most uncanny likenesses and details with it.  It may be something that I'll re-visit later in the future, but seeing as how this would involve investment into heated tools and whatnot, it doesn't seem likely the near future.  The major upside it that it appears that Apoxie Sculpt is my new favorite material.  It's frustrating to lose the detail that is placed into a piece when it is placed in an oven to cure, with the Apoxie this is not a factor.  Another great thing is that it is A LOT less fragile that Sculpy once cured.  It can stand quite a bit of abuse.  So taking what I've learned, I'm going to try my most ambitious work yet.  It's going to be a large scale sculpture of the Green Goblin, glider and all.  This will allow me to use every aspect of skills I've learned so far and try and push myself to the next level.

Thanks for adding my Steam punker Kitty to your collection. There are a few head sculptors in the field so all they got it just heads in their shelf. It is okay if those heads don't have torsos as long as you keep going. Good luck.
