In Summer of 2014, I came across Akiane Kramarik's Website, which astounded me and made me want to take up painting. I decided to start with what I knew, and googled "painting dinosaurs." this led me to discover James Gurney's blog (The author of Dinotopia). I took note of his method of sculpting clay maquettes for reference in his paintings. I decided to make my own maquette, and ended up creating a self-contained work of art. This was my first time sculpting since my teenage years, and I was pleased to see that it turned out a lot better than my previous sculptures.
And she works as a maquette!
