Sculpture #1

My first sculpture for my Sculpture 1 class. Finished and pre-paint pictures, respectively. The idea is to be simultaneously 3 designs - weapon, creature, and vehicle. The vehicle version is a jet. The creature is a manta-ray type creature, but who is blind and senses its surroundings with the processes sticking off of the spine. The weapon design is heard to describe in words (I plan to make a diagram for the sketchbook I have to turn in) But basically, the base wraps around the forearm and the tip protrudes out, similar to a wrist sword. The base acts as a small buckler-type shield to parry away attacks and quickly counter attack with the tip. You could feasibly wear two for a crazy pair of weapons.
