Relief Pt. 2

I think that the detail in the eagle is very successful. The texture really pops and makes it realistic. The goal of this piece was to have your eye drawn to the eye of the eagle and the addition of the glass really does that! I feel like the paint on the piece really ruins the look of it. The piece also broke which makes the piece look incomplete. My piece originally was going to be just the tile, but then it broke. I over came that challenge by adding more tiles to create the rest of the eagle. The mini projects did help with my sculpting abilities and learning what each tool does.

Artist inspired

The artist that inspired me was Wang Ruilin. He focuses on art based in Beijing China. He mainly uses what looks like a clay! What drew me in as a viewer was his attention to his detail. I personally love his work with animals! He puts the animals in cool positions which really adds a cool atmosphere.

Relief post: part one

I plan on making a eagle out of clay. In the sculpture the beak will be raised up coming out at you. The rest of the bird will be going back into the tile. The eye is the focal point so I plan to melt glass into the eye to really make that pop. This is what inspired me to try this piece
