New Year, New Discovery

Hopefully by now, those of you who drop in on a semi-regular basis will know I have a love of things fantasy/sci-fi, especially concept artwork. This morning whilst browsing my resurrected FaceBook page I discovered a lady sculptor by the name of Nicole West. She creates absolutely stunning figures from clay. The detail is amazing and beautiful, almost to the point of being jaw-dropping (but that could just be my own personal reaction).

To whet your appetite, the image below is of one of her pieces from the her gallery site, the link to which I will include below this picture. this piece is entitled Carnivale Courtesan. I hope you'll agree on my thoughts regarding the beautiful detail and workmanship of Nicole West's work.

  2. This is actually funny but I've been a huge fan of these clay sculptures for a while. I actually tried my hand at making a "OOAK" doll. It was an interesting topic talking to my wife about it. I was trying to make a fairy and obviously that's not the most masculine of activities but thankfully she's still around! It's actually a LOT harder than it looks, but there is a whole community worldwide that are really into these OOAK dolls. BTW if you like concept art, you should check out my facebook page. It's called "The Fantasy Tavern" and I have a plethora of cool concept art.

    1. Hey, thanks for the drop in :)

      Somehow I picture you sculpting a Viking, or a dragon maybe... But a faerie!? Pardon my ignorance, but what does OOAK stand for?

      Following your FB page, and you were right, exactly the sort of thing I like. Cheers for that :)

    2. "OOAK" stands for One of a Kind. Google it and you'll find a ton of other pictures. Yeah, probably should have started with an Orc or something like that lol
