Okay, I may have gone a little overboard in challenging myself today. Of course, part of the reason for doing this daily head challenge is to push myself.
I thought to myself, “It’s Wednesday, American Idol night. Why not sculpt a head inspired by AI?” And who would be the most interesting person to provide the inspiration?
Steven Tyler, of course.
I think the hair pulled this piece together. Without the hair, Steven was looking a little more like Marilyn Manson. The most fun part…making the mouth.
This head is approximately 2″ tall, is made from a mix of white and translucent clay, was sanded and colored with a wash of acrylic and oil paints.
