Crow Relief

Here’s a very rough, early look at a relief I’m working on. At first, I had wanted to do a hawk then I changed my mind and wanted to go more in a crow direction… you can see the sculpts half way in between the two birds right now. The final piece will most likely be a crow. I hope to have this piece ready for Denver Comic Con but since I’m working on a few other sculpts right now time is a little tight :P

This relief will also, most likely, be my first guinea pig for molding and casting. I really want to learn the ins and outs of making copies! If anyone has good suggestions for resources – please don’t be shy! For a start, I just bought John Brown’s Gnomon DVDs on casting:
