Help

My piece seems top heavy should I just shape down the left projection to a cone shape or other?
Thanks

Re: Help

I don't think it is to bad like it is,but if you really feel you should change it,by all means,
Here is a "edit" I made to your image,but not real good. I do not have my "tablet"here in Oklahoma, so all I could do is with the mouse. But any way, I agree, I would make the left side smaller, about the same as the right side, maybe the "head" too ?,...
Here is the image:


Might give you a idea as to what I mean, and the difference it would make.

Re: Help

If your piece seems top heavy, try turning it upside down.

Thanks, it's pinned so turning it over is a problem. I like the radical idea though.

Thanks I will try something to that effect. I looked in on your kiss sculpture, if that's the correct idea of it. It's real nice. I think you should stay with that theme I see a lot of possibilities for you and I can see where it would come in demand. I don't want to say to much about someone's work if they don't want that.

Another option would be to hollow out the left arm so that it looks like a cup from the view shown in photo. The same could be done for head portion - make both more and more concave until you achieve the desired balance.

Re: Help

i think it looks good. do not change it. you were in your own very personal space when you made the choices that produced this shape . be happy that this is a snapshot of your inner self at that point in time. you will produce many things in your life ,give it a few years, and you and others may treasure this work as it is .

I couldn't agree more except the sculptor asked for help to change the balance of the piece created. I like the way it looks too and think hollowing out parts would take away from the original impression but again, the artist asked for suggestions so some of us are offering them.
