Goodbye free time

Today was my first day of classes this semester.  I'm very pleased with the variety of subjects I get to study.  Along with animation (CG and 2D) I'll have sculpture, visual development, and advanced character design.  All that, and I have to make my film!  It's delightfully scary.
So here's the first project I started for sculpture. This was an unplanned piece.  We were meant to focus on starting off with simple shapes, building rough and making it up as we go.  The piece is about six or seven inches tall I'd say, minus the horns.
 Mahoney showed us some amazing monster and creature sculptures, so I just had to make something monstrous.  I'll finish this up next week, and I may paint it when it dries.  Hopefully I'll get some maquettes for my film characters done soon.
Good luck to all my fellow students.  Make this a fantastic semester!

Sweet maquette Michael! I can't wait to see the finished result.

I'm glad things are going well for you in school :) You had better keep me updated on your film as you go along, I know it is going to be amazing (no pressure, haha)

I wish you all the best this semester!

A really cool and haunting sculpture. Beautiful work.
