(The back of the head never looked right to me so I knew I had to take a long look and adjust my style to fix what wasn't working to me visually)
Step by Step- Sculpting Pumpkinhead
When I look back I could kick myself for not following through a year ago, but lesson learned. I started Pumpkinhead in May of 2011, then after I was like two days into it I shelved it and jumped into making the Wasted Footage puppet show. I had this idea to do mini busts after a fellow artist Scott Campbell gave me a mini bust that he made. Scotts work was very fun and after I held the bust he gave me it clicked that this was a perfect fit for me. Space was always an issue to me cause I have no space to work, also I want to do soooooo many projects that by scaling down I can make more things and shift my focus on detail. So all this said I wanted to start my first bust........then right after I started I got on a huge puppet kick and threw a year at the puppet show, guess that was my last hurrah into being a filmmaker. I do suffer from doing way too many things at once, my brain is always all over the place when I get excited about an idea (I see the finished product in my mind and I know that I have to create every aspect of the idea from the first drawing, to building, to the final edit) so it was tough for me to give up writing, directing, editing, making puppets, shooting, making music, just imagining everything......shifting to just sculpting was scary and I got figgity (always self doubt, putting all my eggs in one basket so to speak) and shelved Pumpkinhead..........stupid, shoulda just did this and saw it through, shoulda gave myself a chance, but like I said, lesson learned. This sculpt turned out good and I am satisfied with it.
