Hey y’all, I have been in grad school for the last month, and it was heaven! Good peeps, bad language, and tons of drawing! I’ve never felt so at home with a group of people. We had a great tools and techniques course and I started to learn how to do ink wash. It’s too much fun!
I really like the last few boar heads I’ve made, so I wanted to kick it it up a notch. Making the boar head on a larger scale has it’s share of challenges, some things are much easier to do. The boar’s little teeth, for example are much less of a headache on the big boar. The bottom picture should give you an idea of how big this boar head is.
Have I gone mad?! Yes, I have started yet another Boar head! As with the fourth boar head, I tried to give this pig creases and wrinkles. I thought I’d give this piggy a wreath of oak leaves to give this boar head an alpine feel.
Yes, friends, my second boar head is almost finished. I have fired it, and assembled it, but I want to glaze it. I’ll need to take it apart to do that, but I just wanted to see it whole so badly. I also got to take a great creepy picture of me and the boar (bottom).
