Artwork Description

This is an old sculpture design that I had done for a giftware company. The sculpter in China found it too difficult to create. So it was scrapped. Oh well, it happens!

This is so beautiful, this indeed would be a very good sculpture. It's really a shame that the sculpter was a bit lazy...... this would be a very hot item!!!!! I absolutely love the way you drew the fish they are awesome. Was this done on colored paper? Probably a foolish question but It really has a great atmosphere....The big fish looks so wise.....well you are fantastic

The movement in this image is very well captured. The fish's details are very effective as well. A sculpture of this would be time consuming and complicated but well worth it in the end. Smile

That's very eligant. This design would make a beautiful relief sculpture, that could be hung on the wall or something, but I don't know what type of sculpture you had planned. This isn't to complex for a felief, but I don't know what exactally you had planned. I created a very similar sculpture of an eligant looking fish, with lots of fins, and it's tail curled up like that.

Beautiful piece, I hope you get something done with it.

I felt the same way when I first got the news. I even asked them If I would sculpt the originals for the same pay or even less (That's how desperate I wanted to do this one!) However, they stuck to their guns saying that even after crunching the numbers, the production would still be too costly!
Still, they haven't heard the last from me! Wink ~P~

It's astonishing...I love the fish, especially--looks like one of those deep-sea ones that look like they've got trees on their heads. I think the sculptor was just lazy, too--it's certainly a toughie, but one had some way to keep it held up while working on it, so all the delicate bits wouldn't get crushed, it would be perfectly possible.

Art at its best.
