Owl Sculpture


This is a picture I took today of a maquette I made of a Burrowing Owl. I made it with Chavante, armature wire and two teddy bear eyes. He is perched on a small block that represents the post of a barbed wire fence. I love sculpting, especially when I get seriously burned out with drawing or animating.....It seems to bring me right back.

Haha, great! I didn't know you sculpted Mike. This is a really appealing sculpt. I definitely saw this as a Roush design the instant I saw it. You're really developing a sweet style that is recognizable as your own, and it permeates through whatever medium you're using too. You rock!
