OT I love Gwen, I went to both her concerts, she was a little pregnant when she did the first show here. My Parnter works at the Planet Hollywood hotel, and he got us really good seats he knows the casino host, thay reserve the best seats for VIPs, the second show was at MGM Grand went with a Lizzy couple I've known since I moved here.

One of the things that I do a lot. If I see a pattern with colors that work well I try to recreate a doll outfit in my head, this excercises the techniques for costuming that are still fresh, and helps the problem solving aspect later, if you can visualize the process. It's makes it way easier when you do it in real world. I know it sounds crazy, but it really works.

The Harajuku one has gone over my head, so I dont know what that is, but Alan that is a good idea. With me things take shape with a name and I can usually build up a good story around them. When I say good story I mean just for my ears it wouldn't make sense to anyone else. :lol:

Amy,

With experience sewing you get to a certain comfort zone where you can try different things. I make my own patterns at this point but I keep that simple. When I got to the strip and see the window displays of the couture gowns, some seem impossible to duplicate with my knowlege, but if I really like the look I research it well.

As far as sculpting goes a good foundation in anatomy is important study everyone around you and look closely at bone structure. One of the things I struggle with is control of the clay. Somethings seem impossible. I reach points of frustration when working in this smaller scale. One of the things that use to get me was the clay not sticking to the armature, but now I brush the armature down with sobo glue. Let the glue dry and begin sculpting, this technique was shared with me by Diane Keeler. I still have this problem, but not as bad. What I do with problem areas is I will slice an opening in the clay down to the armature and place a few drops of super glue close it back up and blend it. This does the trick.

Ahhh, sewing....that is just something I don't do (unfortunately). Honestly, I don't even sew buttons back on. Give me glue!

I am starting to see the world differently, more thru a "sculptor's" eyes if that makes sense. I can see what I want to do so clearly, but again, my hands don't listen to me. I am getting better, but I have a very long way to go. As for the glue...AWESOME tip....I have saved in my file of tips. Honestly Alan, you are such a great help. Thank you so much!

OMG Essie,

I love "Dia De Los Muetos" I actually have a small collection of hand made paper mache Skeletons in boxes. They make these like mini cabinets with scenes inside. They are colorful, and artistic, this website is triple or more the price these cost in Mexico.

Those are gorgeous. I have a fascination with Skulls, I realized this a while back. I can't wait to see your open Skirt skeloton dolls. If you like the colorful Day of the Dead art you might really like Ed Hardy take a look at their clothes here http://www.edhardyshop.com/?Click=92564 My partner shops at the outlet store here in Las Vegas all the time.

SAME HERE, AMY! :-D

Wow, these are all great ideas.
I really like the zodiac concept...hmmmm...

What about characters from sci-fi/fantasy/horror novels?
I'm not sure if anyone is familiar with the following authors, but these are some to consider:

-just about any character from Laurell K. Hamilton's "Anita Blake" series...I would love to do Jean-Claude :d_wink:
-a character from Kim Harrison's "The Hollows" series...Ivy, Rachel, Jenks, Kisten..
-a character from Kelly Armstrong's "Women of the Otherworld" series...Elena, Clay, Jeremy..

I'm fairly certain that the author's permission has to be obtained if the sculpt is going to be sold, but I'm not 100% sure.

Ooh... I would love to do almost any character from Laurell K. Hamiltons "Merideth Gentry" series- especially Kato, the half fae half goblin... Maybe someday. I also have dreams of doing the Queen of the tiny Fae, although her name escapes me at the moment.. Niceven? I like Kelly Armstrong too. I'm madly in love with Lynn Flewelling and all her characters... and oh, well, a dozen other authors! LOL!

Technically, I don't think you HAVE to get permission to do a OOAK, as long as credit is given, but I did when I sculpted one of Lynn Flewelling's characters, just to be on the safe side..

I know there are lots out there already, but I thought it would be to do a Fairy Tale series (Cinderella, Snow White, Sleeping Beauty, Red Riding Hood, Rapunzel, etc...)

I have thought of the zodiac, that would be fun...I think Nicole West has a lot of these made...or someone, I can't remember who now, but they were fantastic.

Seasonal Fairies, like the Elementals that have been done, but do Fall, Spring, Winter and Summer.

Oh I'm sure there are more ideas....my brain isn't turned on yet this morning.

Oh wow Heather, I had forgotten about the Meredith Gentry series!
I'd love to see you sculpt Kato!
I'd like to try (someday) Queen Andais, and either Rhys or Frost.

I'll have to check out Lynn Flewelling's books..I'm always looking for a good fantasy author.

Here's an idea:
I'm not sure if everyone is familiar with the American T.V. series "The Addams Family"...it ran during the mid to late 1960's.
There was a movie based on the series, too.

Anyway, my sister wants me to sculpt "Thing"...the disembodied hand that comes out of the box when it's opened.

Ess, this would be something for you to do! :wink:

Actually- karen, you're not going to believe this, but Essie did an Adams Family sculpt! It was totally awesome, with automata, and thing coming out of the box! It was one of her skirt dolls, Morticia. So very, very cool. :D I'd like to see her do Wednesday, with the headless doll.

Shoot!!! Girls!!! you all get to know me tooooooo well.
Yes I did Morticia and Wednesday is on my toplist.
When I was young I always dreamed that Morticia was my mom.
I have such a sweet mom but she is and was a very classy lady who always wear Chanel clothes and pearls.
The only thing she had in common with Morticia was the long black hair.

I also did a fairytale figure like Amy suggested , I did my version of Snow white: Snow white kissed awake by a fly shadowbox

I love the Adams Family. There's a lot of people who say that my hubby, kids and I are like a weird mix of the Adams Family and The Brady Bunch- we look so normal and wholesome, but we're twisted in a strange yet affectionate way. :D My kids play torture, lock each other in cages, etc, and my Hubby and I are always being kissy and romantic in odd little ways. :D I love it!

The think tank is great. I'm new enough that I'm not sure what is cool as far as the "Fairy" charactures. In fact most of my subjects are more like people from history or daily life. I have been up since 4 again this morning reading and getting inspiration and motivation. I have decided on my first project and I don't think it will quallify as a fantisy folk but it's where my fantisies run. I'm planning on ordering the stuff today to do a 12"early 1900's biker. This seems far from what most of you do but all of your talent, informative posts and great ideas are very inspirational.
A couple quick ideas for pieces that might be fun for someone to do. Red Cloud, Sitting Bull, Chief Joseph, Washakie or any of a number of well known Native Americans

My dolls don't fit in the fairy fantasy as well hihihi (understatement of the year)
I like to see your biker, very interesting!
The native Americans would be so much fun to do, all that beadwork, leather/suede and feathers ohhhh heaven for me.

I just went and checked out your work. Youre light hearted approach is wonderfull. Maybe if I can figure out how I will try and upload some photos of the 4" figures I am working on now. They are not going to be OOAK but are for doing pewter pieces but maybe thats ok.

We do have some artists here to do less fantasy type stuff, they just don't post as often- probably more involved in real life- LOL! Sudsy is one that doesn't do the fantasy stuff, and I'm trying really hard to remember someone else, but it's just not coming to mind right now.... *shrug*. Doesnt' matter, we love everyone!

I'd love to see someone do some of the ideas you've listed, and I am also really looking forward to seeing some of your 4 inch pieces, and the biker. :D

I got all the stuff ordered today for doing the 12" figure. I have a very detailed 1914 Indian motorcycle that will become part of the piece. I know I will be hollaring for help a bunch over the next couple months. I hope I don't drive you all crazy. Maybe by the time he is taking some form I will figure out how to post pictures. Thanks Jeff

As a Chinese-Malaysian, my inspirations come from the diverse culture I grew up in. I feel lucky growing up among Muslims and Hindus, the wonderful aborigines of Borneo, tropical flora & fauna, south-east Asia, Oriental and European cultures etc etc. My list has expanded even more since I moved to Australia, this country has people from all over the world! Sometimes I just love people watching in the city to get new ideas.

I am lost as always! Is the Think Tank the same as where I posted ideas? for swaps or challenge? My Huge World is endless I just have to search stop look and create! My Think Tank is so huge I wish I could create what I have in it. I just love challenging myself toward creation,wether it be in fantasy or real world. I try,try! When I made my semi-stuffed bears I didn't think I was able to and I did, they were a big Think Tank.
I love indian and all cultures as well as Hardys,any thing goes without being perfect,things in animation. I will try what ever is voted for count me in when decided :wink: . Hugs
Trial and Error are my driving directions to all my creations!
Supporting You Maggie!

no hun, the think tank is a dumping ground for all the ideas we have in our heads that we know for now at least we wont get around to doing and for other people to pick an idea from when their idea pool is a little dry

the other thread is about ideas for the next (summer?) swap,

What an amazing Idea this thread.

I've wanted to sculpt some of the characters from Piers Anthony's Incarnations of Immortality series..
Especially Luna and Zane(Death) and Fate (all three aspects of her).
Nighty night fairies in cute lingerie
Elemental Sprites
Let my words today be tender and sweet...for tomorrow I may have to eat them.

Emotion fairies, grief, anger, fear, regret, etc.
How did I miss this post. I have so many pictures on my hard drive that I thought would make and interesting sculpt but I have never gotten around to doing them. I will have to post some of them.
Morphing a ball of clay and wire into something beautiful is magical. It puts a bright light in my heart to see what my otherwise clumsy hands have created.

One day I would like to do an Cherokee Indian fairy. I think it would be a little different. Just like the idea of nature/culture and being in tune with it all. The outfit for such would be interesting. It might sound kinda dry but that's one thing I've been hashing over. Gosh you all have so many cool ideas.

I have some great pics I have been wanting to get around to sculpting but so far have had no time. But maybe it will inspire someone else.
