Re: YPP's Greatest Hits! - Entry Thread (Deadline July 20th)
Pirate name: Greenslope

Name of original event: Nemo's Prized Parrot Paintings! (2004)
Link to the original event thread: Nemo's Prized Parrot Paintings! (2004)
Contest-specific information: Any artistic medium allowed (I sculpted), subject: parrots of course!

"Best Mates"

I had lots of fun making a sculpture of myself and a parrot navigating the Viridian Ocean together. I hope that someday I'll have a parrot like this one for company on long sea voyages. I did my best, hope you like it.


Final photo (large image) .

The sculpture is made of colored Sculpey over a wire and tinfoil armature on a basswood base. I took lots of in-progress photos on this project. It took several days. I tried to stay as true to Y!PP art style as possible. Details like no nose, four fingers, and clothing design come straight out of the portrait art style. Now in 3-D!

In-progress photos: 1 2 3

The final piece is pretty neat from any angle. It stands 8" high. It looks like I'm really putting my weight into turning that wheel. ^_^

Angle shots: 1 2 3 4 5 6

Good luck everyone! Keep these great contests coming!
