This is a clip from my sons', Jake's and Luke's, web comic. Jake wanted to make a statue of his brother's toon for Luke's birthday. So, he did.
Jake does the art for their web comic and Luke does the writing. Most of the comic strips have Luke and Jake in them. Anyway, when Jake said he was going to make a statue of his brother I asked him, "have you ever made a statue before?"
"No," he told me, "but how hard can it be?"
I just smiled and watched him go to work.
First Jake had to sketch out the statue he wanted to make:
Then he had to make the armature to stick the clay on.
Then he had to start layering the clay.
Then the actual sculpting:
Now, it was time to bake the little Luke:
I thought he turned out sooooo cute:
And, so we drove to UofO to have Luke open his gift.
I think he liked his little Luke.
Plus, Jake was explaining that now he's going to make a statue of himself to fit on the other side of the circle. It will be brother to brother - standing back to back and forming a full circle.
Two toons immortalized in clay - how cute is that?
