lol @ the Nemo reference, very nice job on this. Im curious though, how did you manage all the little details?
Reply
:iconrandyhand:
RandyHand Featured By Owner Feb 23, 2012
hee hee...yeah, always fun to pay homage to such a great movie...:)

The details were just a combination of a few of my favorite sculpting tools and some patience...
Sometimes I feel like I'm going to go cross-eyed when I"m putting in dimples, divots and bumps...
Taking breaks and deep breathing helps too!
Thanks so much!
All my best,
take care

Can I just watch and learn? You have got to make a video of your process or something. This is an impressive level of detail and care.

Thanks so much for the kind words and the fave on my fish.
I really m happy with how this guy came out.
I am going to come up with a simple process video of one of my pieces soon...
My wife and I are actually re-building my web site and that is going to be part of it.
Thanks again for your support!
All my best,

RandyHand Featured By Owner Jan 27, 2012
Thanks so much!
I'm really happy with how it came out...
I've got a few basic ideas on how I want to color it, but one thing is that I want to give him those glazed over cataract eyes to add to his creepiness.
I'll probably lay down a metallic silver first and then go over it with a nice transparent color combination...
Gotta give his belly a sickly pale look too...
Thanks again...
Take care

I'd love to try to carve something like this in a pendant size. I don't have any of your skills, I work in metal mostly. But would you be OK with that?

Ha haha...I'm going to have to clue him in....unless that's his way of lulling a fish in to a false sense of security....hmmmmm

When I was child there was this Bert and Ernie fishing bit on Sesame Street that I really loved
where Ernie would yell "fishy, fishy" and the fish would hop into his boat...
....hmm...why am I trying to explain it when I can show you the video..since everything's on youtube now..ha [link]
anyway, you naming it 'Fishy Fishy' reminded me of that.

I love the menace of his expression!
...and I love what you did with the gills. They almost like like a lion's mane, or one of the dragon lizards
with their flailing head skin...that's the technical term....haha
It really compliments the aggressiveness of the face....creating a very imposing demeanor.

Awesome stuff, Randy!
take care...drive safely

I really did have a blast with this piece.
It had been a while since I was able to just play around and make something just for me and nothing or no one else.
Kind of put my heart and soul in to this one...
I'll check out your link for Bert and Ernie...thanks!
Can't go wrong with anything Muppet or Sesame Street related...
Have a great weekend my friend!
Take care

Love this little guy Randy!!Does the soft Jmac set up pretty firm when its left at room temp?
Reply
:iconrandyhand:
RandyHand Featured By Owner Jan 19, 2012
Thanks so much Lonnie,
It does indeed stay firm at room temp.
If it gets hit with direct sun it starts softening pretty quickly.
This is about as small as I care to go with the J-Mac though. Any smaller and I usually use a harder wax like Castilene.
All my best,
Take care

How big is he by the way?

:iconrandyhand:
RandyHand Featured By Owner Jan 18, 2012
Thanks so much Jamie!
I'm really happy with this piece and it was a blast to work on...
It measures approx. 14-inches long, 9-inches high, and 6 inches wide. (not sure what that converts to metric)
I'm excited to paint it up as well!
I'll hopefully post shots of that soon,
Always great to hear from you my friend!
Best to you,
Take care
