Large Pegasus wip by Reptangle Large Pegasus wip by Reptangle
I'd call this a "work in progress" but it hasn't progressed very much. This sculpture has been sitting around unfinished for years.
It is really too complicated to produce, and too large to be a Paint your own, so I don't know what to do with it.
This is carved gypsum.

Too bad it's too large for a PYO! I can only imagine what some of those uber talented artists on the forum would do with this :)

How big is this guy? I mean, if you just sold him as a limited edition (only one, hah), would that be impractical for some reason? I'm sure SOMEONE would be willing to buy such a gorgeous pegasus. ;D Then again, you can always keep him for yourself!

He's big, but not huge; about 14 inches tall and a 12 inches long.

Gah. Even your "fails" are gorgeous. Sigh.

Hey, bought a HUGE raccoon skull and a mink skull yesterday. I already have both in my collection, but the raccoon one was much bigger than any I'd seen before.

Also scored a cicada. Don't yet know what species it is. It's smaller than the typical Dog Day cicadas...

And, found thompsonites (zeolites) and my best agate ever today! Whoohoo! I need to photograph the agate and post it....

Oh, and I've posted a picture of bats too. Video of them comes later...:D

Tidy him up and set him on the front porch to greet your visitors! Unless you're where he could be stolen..

when you carve, do you use hand tools or powered tools such as dremmels with mini bits? i honestly don't even know if dremmel would work on gypsum, but i imagine that it would speed it compared to hand work, if it's possible to use?

I mostly use tiny hand tools, like dental tools. I rarely use power tools, but they can be useful for some things, such as adding a rough texture to "stone" areas, or if I need to remove a lot of material.

Charity auction?

I can see where this one would be a bear to produce, and very delicate with all of the open space and thin structures like wings and legs. Beautiful... and fragile!

How tall is he? I'd say working with the legs on him would be a pain for moldmaking too....

I do really enjoy the form and especially the mane and tail on him. Love the musculature in the rear flank area too. I still struggle horribly with believable musculature.

Yeah, the extra cleaning up on the castings because of the seam lines on legs would be murder. That is another reason I haven't made an effort to finish him!

By the looks of other comments, people don't realize it's too soft to just 'paint it up' to finish.maybe you could have it cast in something else? say, resin or something so you could have a somewhat permanent piece?maybe you could even have it cast at a bronze factory? wow..now that would be amazing and kinda pricey ^^;

But I'd have to finish it! Bleh. This material isn't soft. I carve in very hard gypsum. This stuff is like a rock!

Why not paint it up and sell it on eBay? It really is quite lovely, and I'm sure it could fetch quite a bit :D
