I’ve got zillions of sketches, both drawings and 3d mock-ups of ideas I would like to do as Windstone pieces in the future. I haven’t been showing many of these ideas because I am so behind in sculpting, it seems crazy to think about new sculpture that when I have over a dozen half-finished sculptures that are waiting for attention.
What the heck. I’m going to show them anyway.
This is a photoshop sketch of a catfish, or sea kitty -I haven’t given them a name yet. I have been thinking about watercats for years, but other than a few small clay sketches and drawings, they haven’t happened yet. I had intended them to be outdoor garden art cast in cement. I thought they would be cute to have near a pond. Since we aren’t planning to cast cement again in the near future, I am now picturing them in the “fine finish” for indoor use, with cat and fish colors. They would have detailed fur with mermaid-like scaled tails ( I didn’t take time to draw all the scale details on this pic) and they would be a little larger than the Tiger and Puffin cats, if you are familiar with those. This one is Siamese, colored with a blue metallic tail, but I also have a sketch of a calico cat with koi markings. I will never give up hope that I’ll be able to do something that looks good with koi markings someday!
