Well, it’s about time I post something.
I began this sculpt in order to get back into doing real art, rather than tinkering with the technicalities of working in CG. The original concept was to sculpt a ballet dancer, but I found myself wanting to do something more than that. My goal was for this sculpt to convey a sense of joy and freedom of spirit. A release of the soul from worldly troubles. When I designed the pose, instead of referencing images of dancers I simply followed my gut feeling for what I wanted to convey. Interestingly the final pose is very close to a common ballet pose, but a little more wild.
Let me know what you think.
