Ganesha: Complete! by rgyoung Ganesha: Complete! by rgyoung
Finally, FINALLY, I got my arse in gear and finished this guy, right before the Spectrum submission deadline. Thank goodness they opened up electronic submissions this year! In any case, here's my Ganesh sculpture, all painted up.

This sculpture was a blast to sculpt and paint, and I learned a ton in the process, which is always good!

17" tall x appx. 10" w. Super sculpey original/firm blend and Apoxie Clay over a wire/foil/mesh armature. Painted with Cel-Vinyl from Cartoon Colour.

Don't forget to look in my gallery for some detail shots of this guy, along with quite a few WIP photos (if you're interested in seeing how this piece progressed/developed).

Thanks for looking!

You put your right foot in
You take your right foot out
You put your right foot in
And you shake it all about
You do the hokey pokey
And you turn yourself around
That's what it's all about

And I remember how clever this guy was.

Thanks for bring him back, and congrats on DD.

If you meant Shiva, yes! He is the child of (or creation of, depending on the version of the story) Parvati and Shiva. Wikipedia's article on Ganesha has some pretty good info to get you started, if you're curious.

Thanks for the comment. :)
