On the heels of the trapper will come this 1/10 bust of a pirate based on a sketch by illustrator Howard Pyle. I've always wanted to do a bust based on this sketch in hopes of at least capturing the spirit of Pyle's drawing.
Although I found two other sketches this one is the main inspiration for the bust. Pyle's pirate had that look that went on to firmly establish themselves in print and film that continues today.
Don't be afraid to give your best to what seemingly are small jobs. Every time you conquer one it makes you that much stronger. If you do the little jobs well, the big ones will tend to take care of themselves. ~Dale Carnegie
I was born and raised in Erie, Pennsylvania where I currently live with my family. My interests grew out of a facination with military uniforms. It progressed from playing with toy soldiers to sculpting Historical Miniatures. In addition to sculpting I've begun painting figure studies of the subjects that interest me most.
