In ceramics this semester, we've only had two classes so far, but I've been able to make so many heads. That is my continuing goal; to learn how to properly sculpt human heads. Somehow, I improved a great deal since last semester; although I did not sculpt on the break, I did a lot of drawing and attempting to learn proportions. I also have been reading several books that discuss techniques by other ceramic artists. "The Figure in Clay: Contemporary Sculpting Techniques by Master Artists" has been VERY helpful.
I have six heads so far, varying from life-size to about 7" high, all in various stages of completion. And then our first project was announced yesterday, it involves majolica, and I can do a bust or head, so it won't interfere with my personal heads project.
I feel a sense of craving/ anxiety because I have to wait until next Tuesday to work on my heads, it is a really bad feeling. :( I am trying to distract myself by working on other projects, but it is not a good feeling. My sleep was terrible last night, and I kept thinking about my projects.

Oh, and when I did fall asleep, this was part of my dream: I rescued a gray and white cat who was heavily pregnant. Her stomach hung down and resembled a pregnant woman's belly, but on a smaller scale. It was almost translucent, and laced with large blue veins. Ugh. Eventually she gave birth, and later in the dream, I was picking at her nose. Her nose was dark gray, despite the fact that most gray and white cats seem to have pink noses. I was picking at her nose and it came off in a nose shaped peg. Picture a round peg that goes into a round hole. Like that, but the shape was the outline of a cat nose instead of round. And it was cat nose material, soft and gray and covered in cat nose peach fuzz, all over the peg, which was about 1 1/2" long. The inside of the hole it inserted into was lined with the same short, soft white fur on the rest of her face, and was surprisingly well-lit from inside. It made me uncomfortable to look at, and I slid it back in.


I've had a hectic, sleep-deprived week. Please be patient with me. :heart:
LIttle Creature in the Woods by pink-porcupine
LIttle Creature in the Woods
She can grant you one wish! Is your wish to be bitten by a small, well-dressed creature who lives in the woods, and then almost die from the resulting infection? Because that's kinda the only wish she can grant. You won't die, you'll just almost die. And they say that what doesn't kill you will only make you stronger, so there's that at least.

I was going to do more with her eyes, but I like the way they look like this, and they remind me of one artist's style, but I can't remember their name. I don't know.

Little Princess by pink-porcupine
Little Princess
Her tummy and hindquarters are based on a picture of a pug standing on her hind legs, and I thought it would be silly to label her as having "Mature Content" since you wouldn't censor a pug's teats. Or maybe you would. I don't know what you'd do.
But yeah. Anyway. I apologize if pug teats offend you. Or it is against your religion to gaze upon them, and I made you sin in the eyes of your god. :(

New Coat by pink-porcupine
New Coat
I came across some old paper that is made with peppers of some sort (the seeds are embedded and the pink color comes from the actual pepper), and decided to use some for drawing. So here is a little creature with a new coat that she is very pleased with.
