She gets better and better as you show different angles. (I guess that's what sculptures are supposed to do, but probably don't often succeed like this)
Benjamin Belew and Sakagch Akeala - Over 30 days ago
I try to make every angle, view point "count".

I'm wondering if you're set up to produce bronze figures... This one really should go viral (in actual bronze)!
Benjamin Belew and Sakagch Akeala - Over 30 days ago
bronzing would be awesome

It would be cost-effective too, if you limited it to a small number (1-4) of the very best, not too big, and planned a whole marketing campaign well in advance. You could combine the "crowdfunding" kind of scheme (recommended for comic book projects in an article I just read), with the "charter subscriber" model that's used during the run-up to launching a new publication—to raise enough in seed money / pledges / capital to pull it off. There are other materials too that might be better to start with (not such a daunting investment and able to go to people who aren't fabulously rich). And even if the material is come kind of plastic resin or fiberglass or whatever, and even if it's an edition of 1000, each individual piece has to be signed and numbered and accounted for (so it's art rather than decoration and so you know who buys it and you can see if they're interested in another, or in a bronze edition). If the photos are anything to go by, you're doing amazing work that deserves to get out into the world. (All of my advice is written as conjecture; it would probably take a five-minute internet search to find ten agents or companies that handle this kind of thing, and another ten minutes to find artists' comments and reviews of their experiences to weed out the ripoffs).

Thank you very much for the encouragements and suggestions Van.
I'm aware of the crowd funding model, and have been looking into it for a while.
I'm going to do more research.
Thank you again.

good luck and stay in touch, although there's not much to add on my end. I figure my brain is good for 2.5-dimensional thinking & visualization—never quite made it into 3-D, but I'm (almost painfully, though also joyously) aware it's there waiting—that's largely from taking sculpture classes where I never produced anything good but indirectly learned a hell of a lot about how to draw.
