The Dorian Gray

Recommended Posts

Soon to be staged in steel and clay,

You are about to witness the birth,

Life and death of Dorian Gray.

 

The backbone and ribs would interwine

To create a solid foundation

For a metallic melody to echo sublime.

 

The bending and swaying of the silhouette,

Like Poseidon playing with waves

I joggle between chiaroscuro and Corvette.

Out of curiosity what do your class mates and teachers think of your work? Are you being taught to design this way?

Is that the first time the word Corvette was ever used in a poem?

 

Reminds me a lot of this guy who built an entire car out of insultation foam.

On a serious note - if you're planning on doing the rest in clay you can probably fill more of that empty space with foam...actually using solid foam (which you can generally find a a hardware or building supply store) is much better than styrofoam because you can get 90% of your shape with the foam. Right now you have huge voids which will take massive amounts of clay to fill.

note 2

 

Flesh to the bones would be attached,

Slowly sculpting the nose and waist

Akin to Adam or Eve, that from a concept were hatched.

 

Although mimics and traits were still fogged,

The ottoman posture and outline betrayed

To which family tree or car class it belonged.

 

The symphony in metal I wish to conduct,

Where each Note, plated Prelude or Fuga

Would sway the fiddlestick eager to construct.

 

Of plenary powers that a man can behold

the same laws that bridle Mustang or Colt

Harness the fantasy from infeasible revolt.

 

And a few sketches rendered in a trial

Unveiled the contours of Dorian

That judge scrutinized in a presumable denial.

 

The venom of ink can equally portray;

Whether the people who floor him

Or the accomplice himself, the Dorian Gray.

 

( Anyway, I do it all for love, L -O -V- E ;) )

apart from the crappy linework and shading , this sketch has a more than solid perspective compared to your previous sketches ...

 

the design aint a burner tho

 

 

better spend that time searching for rhyming words on sketch workout

Another possible version. Just playing around:)

 

 

 

 

Wait.....you are spending all this time sculpting this thing and now.......now you are exploring design options.

 

That was one of out whole points of your last threads the "gilotto" one. To try and work out some of your ideas quickly on paper before such a heavy commitment to fleshing it out. this way you know a bit more what you are actually fleshing out.

 

 

Cart before the horse?

 

Additionally form what I see on the sculpt is that it is actually starting to resemble some of your sketches. Starting to take on some of the feel and "flavor" of your designs.

 

Is this a good thing? I gave you praise for you sculpting as it seems you have somewhat of a nack for it but........

Poor advancedboy he fails to design and sketch

Develping irrelevant forms that make me wretch

 

O how I wish he would heed or advice

But alas he does not

Only succeeding in forms that do not suffice
