Good Job, you are really good at sculpting, keep it up,
by the way what kind of material are you using ?

Am I supposed to be a fine arts student to understand what this sculptures and the pugnacious squint are about? I really am curious.

Thanks Ty for both the nice words and the great input. I'm going to sit down and update this in 5min.

Petaja! I feel like a horrible friend to find out your blog had been thriving and growing all this time. I need to go back through it with a fine tooth comb.

Maria: Thank you! This is super sculpey (but could have been any number of polymer clays). Here is a link for a west coast art store i buy it from but it is offered all over: http://www.dickblick.com/products/super-sculpey/ I mixed it 40/60 w/ this: http://www.dickblick.com/products/super-sculpey-firm/

Sam: Sorry, i wasn't trying to be cryptic, it's just the two basic themes of the sculpture combined: he's a pugnacious gladiator/wrestler who is temporarily blinded by the sun/bright lights as we walks out into the arena/stadium.
