Welcome to Inle Details by rgyoung
Welcome to Inle Details
Here's the detail photoset for my “Welcome to Inlé” sculpture.

As some of you may know, this project actually started in 2006 when I decided I wanted to sculpt my interpretation of the Black Rabbit of Inlé from Richard Adams’ Watership Down. I was still pretty new to sculpting, but ended up making something I was really happy with and that marked a pretty big turning point for me, both in terms of style and subject. You can view the unpainted version of the initial sculpture here: The Black Rabbit: Unpainted and the painted version here: Black Rabbit, Painted

Last summer, a couple purchased the original piece, paid me to create a more detailed base for the piece, and also gave me free rein, creatively speaking, to do so.

The project ended up taking me about nine months to complete, and the finished piece is definitely something that was a blast to work on, but also was a big challenge. I’m pleased with how it turned out, and though I miss it now that it’s in its new home, I’m glad to have it off my plate. 

It definitely won’t be the last time I explore Inlé, or the Black Rabbit himself, through sculpture, though, you can count on that. :D

Super Sculpey original/firm blend and apoxie Clay over a wire, foil, wire mesh, and wood armature, painted with cel-vinyl, mounted on a poplar board, 22”x11”x16”.

Please don't forget to check out the detail shots I posted in my gallery as well! They're here: Welcome to inle detail montage

Some of you who also watch me on Tumblr saw this posted there several weeks ago. I am very rarely on my desktop these days and do most of my browsing on my tablet. For some reason, when I tried submitting this on dA using it, this time, dA wasn't cooperating. I'm hoping it was just a glitch with the OS of my tablet (which I'd just updated), and not something that's going to be a problem from now on. In any case, if you want more regular updates from me, including more frequent WIP photos, I'd encourage you to follow me on Tumblr as well: blackrabbitsculpture.tumblr.co… .

As always, thanks for looking; hopefully it won't be long before I have a new WIP to show you all; I have a busy winter and spring ahead of me to prepare for the 2015 Festival of Arts!

JoJo-Seames has it all when it comes to her art: great personal style, intelligence, facility with her medium of choice, and she is bold! As a huge plus, she also knows, loves and creates comics. Unfortunately, she is having some financial troubles at the moment and could really use this community's help!

She is open for commissions, starting at $10, and she has some great work ready for sale in her Etsy shop: www.etsy.com/shop/JSeamesIllus…

You, my fine deviants, are going to be in for a treat perusing her gallery. Here are a few of my favorites from her page:

Grandmother Death by JoJo-Seames Jailhouse Rock by JoJo-Seames 08. Boba Fett by JoJo-Seames

Mea Maxima Culpa by JoJo-Seames Alice Cooper by JoJo-Seames Legends of Terror 2012 by JoJo-Seames

So, take a look at her work, and support this fantastic artist!

Your artwork is incredible.  How you can produce such beautiful detail on such small creatures is profound.
BTW: We spoke briefly at the Festival of Arts on Tuesday, I will definitely look into Super Sculpey.
