What happens if you get scared half to death twice?

Came out about as good as I could expect, I've never done this before, works with material I'd never used in a style I've never done. I learned a lot on this project and look forward to the next.
2015? I guess there is still hope for me then.

I have a small collection of statues I started resculpting years ago and just lost steam and...have been in my garage since well...2014 or 2015 too

I told my friend when I took on the project that I like to work slow, more so that I lose Steam and inspiration and only will work when I'm inspired to do anything. This should never feel like a chore but insted a reward, and if it feels grueling or taxing I'm not interested in doing it. I just never expected such a long stretch between inspired moments, truthfully it was quite embarrassing to have this go on so long. But I'm glad it's done and I hope you can find the fuel to dig at least one out of storage and put in the time to finish it.

yep...me too. I only work on a statue project when I feel like it....and not as a chore. I guess if you do it for some sideline work and you get paid for it then you might not have a choice but to do it even if it becomes something you just want to get over with. luckily I do this stuff just for me and my amusement to see where my skill can take the base statue I'm working on...so that means I can can take my sweet time....but hopefully not past the point where I lose interest and move on to a different project....that's just something I try to avoid. no I just focus on 1 project....work on it when I feel like it...and eventually finish it. I don't start on another one without first finishing the current one.

that looks dope brother!

its funny how similar your experience has been with self taught customizing, i learn so much on each project. and dont feel bad about the time frame, ive been working on a batman statue for almost 4 years - actively for about 2.5 and its still not to where you are with this

looks sick though man, big congrats for seeing it through - looking forward to your next project make sure you post pics!

Thanks man.

This was the first custom I've done, it is very weird to work over someone else's work rather than adjust my own. It has its own advantages and disadvantages... But overall I liked it and know it will be the only time it takes as long as it did, if I ever do a comission it will be much much faster

Thanks, I cut a lot of corners at times and then went back and fixed them because I felt bad... but I think for a first timer I can't complain with the outcome really.
