Vishy Vishy fish 1 by RandyHand Vishy Vishy fish 1 by RandyHand
Here' s one in a series of four shots that I sent to Spectrum for the upcoming Spectrum 19. They have a nice site where I was able to download all the shots in a few minutes.
I figured I'd leave it up to them as far as what shot or shots will look the best in the book.
I'm really happy with how the colors on this guy came out.
I photoshopped out the armature rod going in to it's belly along with using the ironing board feature, well, actually it was the clone stamp. The sheet was pretty wrinkled. Hope you all like it!

Fantastic work Randy! So cool to see this little blighter painted up. I love the colour choice. It's funny because I pictured him purple for some reason... too obvious me thinks, lol.
I'm amazed the paint has adhered to the clay that well. Looks gorgeous.
Not sure if I've said so or not but congratulations on the Spectrum entry! Most definitely well deserved my friend! :)
Take care.

Thank you so much Jamie!
I really did have a blast with this piece. I think purple would be an awesome color.
I'll be casting a bunch so I'm going to go all sorts of directions I think.
Yeah, I was nervous at first laying color down on oil based clay.
When I sprayed the white enamel it stayed tacky for a bit, but then dried to the touch and I knew I was home free.
One of the hard parts was not being able to use a heat gun to speed up the drying process.
Looking forward to being able to be a little more reckless with the resin castings.;)
Always great to hear from you my friend!
How have you been doing?

JamieDMac Featured By Owner May 29, 2012
No worries my friend!
I've often thought about painting on to oil based but have been hesitant to try it for fear of screwing up the sculpt. May have to give it a go now...
I like the fact that you went with a none aggressive colour scheme though. Looks terrific. Look forward to seeing what you do with the resin castings! :)

I've been feeling a bit lost these last few weeks to tell you the truth. Waiting on some jobs to start so in the meantime have been trying to do my own thing. Just not sure what that is. I've been starting a different piece each day and by the afternoon I've lost all interest in it and want to do something else. The unseasonably warm weather isn't helping any either. Find it difficult to concentrate. Anyway, enough of my wittering. S'all good ;)

Yes, painting on the clay doesn't hurt the texture at all.
Another suggestion I got was to seal it with Kyrlon clear coat matte before moulding to keep the rubber from taking on the paint.

I know how you feel as far as feeling lost at times. I think we all as artists go through it at times. I know for me that getting out on a nature walk, or somewhere where there is minimal noise and just doing some relaxing and deep breathing, really blows out the stagnant energy and clears the cobwebs. I think it's nice to do something that you're not familiar or comfortable with as well. Painting with acrylics is a hell of a challenge for me and when I get away from sculpting and just throw some paint on to canvas it helps to break up the expectations that I put on myself. I do it without any intention of what's going to turn out and I don't worry if I don't come up with something either. I know it's too easy to get down on myself when I don't have creative energy, but I know it's always temporary.
Hope you have an incredible week my friend!
All my best to you,
Take care,
Randy

I've started doing more exercise this week which seems to have helped clear my head... and shift some of this winter flab I'm still carrying around. Decided to pick a design out of my sketchbook that I've been wanting to sculpt for a while now and just dived into it and not really worrying too much about the outcome. It's fairly simple so hopefully shouldn't take too long to complete. Just having fun with it which is the main thing.
You're right about doing something out of the comfort zone. It's been years since I've done any painting like that. Was never much good at it but always fun to be able to slap some paint about. I cleared a space on my wall the other week so I could put up large sheets of paper to draw on. That's been nice to do for a change. Being able to stand up and make big broad strokes instead of being hunched over scribbling in a sketchbook.
Thanks Randy. Always good to talk to you my friend :)
Take care.

Yeah, exercise is good. I started playing racquetball after a 7 year absence from it. I had to stop because of injuries.
It's been going on 3 weeks of playing and so far so good, but damn, what a lung burner and body beater.
It helps me to let out any pent up aggression and blows out the cobwebs. Plus bike rides on my favorite nature trails always helps.
It's fun to sculpt something without any ties to the outcome. Broad strokes is a good thing. I'm the same as you. The smaller work seems to stop my breathing or make me take more shallow breaths so I have to conciously take deep breaths now and then. Have a great weekend Jamie,
Always great talking to you as well!
All my best,
Randy

I love this angle because you can really see the great look in the face...hard to choose because the full body shots show the wonderful sculpture. Good to send many photos...I would not know how to pick just one either. Great work on this Randy! :)

It seems to make the most of his expression I think.
So glad you like it...
