Art Progress Dump 9/30

I decided to dump some of my progress on you guys today.

I have coil built two pieces in my ceramics class. We are finishing up slab building with texture (I dont have photos of that yet.

In oil painting I have come to a 85-90% completion point on the close up of the dog head. Rather than continuing on with ice cream painting underneath I am considering doing possibly something sculptural or video related to go with the piece. I am still planning things out with that one in my head.  In the mean time I have two other pieces going. One is going to be like a sliding tile puzzle game where the painting is divided into squares which can be slid around to rearrange the composition. That piece is requiring a bit more time cutting, framing and planning and so I have not begun painting it quite yet. The other piece is a small kaleidoscope type image of cows that I am doing for fun in the mean time.  I will try to upload photographs of these eventually.

In sculpture I have made a few more sets of resin eyeballs while attempting to get the process right. I have made a couple pairs that are starting to look better. I have cast the head that will be aluminum in wax and am preparing that for a ceramic shell. I began modeling the exterior head out of modeling clay but I still need to find a model for it so that it looks realistic. I have added clay to get proportions but ran out and had to go purchase more.
