Re: How important is drawing for sculptors?

Hi, I'm looking forward to pix of the gate, awning and wall.
As far as the ego thing goes, most sincere, dedicated and hard working artists that I know are humble people (almost to a fault). The few artists that I know with big egos are "legends in their own minds" , as the saying goes and usually their work isn't that good anyway.
An artist does need to fiercely believe in themself and what they're doing but I think that's more about individuality, independence and the validity of their own creativity and not about ego. All that and at the same time be open to changing and learning which is something an egomaniac can't do.
have a nice day,
