Spreading the Lovecraft on the Solstice

Lots of time and motivation Sunday afternoon saw my little bust of H.P. Lovecraft to completion. Last year I was pushing to finish my Eldritch Elf gift in time, but this one just sort of blurped itself into existence. I sculpted and painted it in well under a week.

I had an absolute blast on this one. I don’t fall into a perfectionist trap on these projects, and I think the joy of creativity shows through in the final product.

Sculpting was both a challenge and a chance to learn.

I think I went about the sculpture in a more systematic & effective way than I have sometimes in the past, but I’ve still got a lot to learn. I may do a bit more sculpting in the weeks ahead, as it’s a chance to create figures I’d like to paint (which I’ve been struggling to find) and make something unique.

You can see another shot of the piece on CoolMiniorNot. You don’t have to be a member of the site to leave a vote, and I’d appreciate it if you do.
