A hipster and his iphone






Not very long ago, a friend told me what a hipster was. I need to get out more- here I was thinking the whole emo thing was still going on. Man, I must be getting old ... Oh well. It seems like I see hipsters everywhere now. I am fascinated by their scarves, and very tight pants haha

I started the piece after the new year. He stands at about 12' - a lot bigger than my usual 8' . Its my first time using Chavant clay. So far I like it very much. Still is in a very rough stage.

I also have a sculpey sculpt tutorial I am trying to get together for some of you guys who have sent emails. My biggest hold up right now is designing the character to sculpt. Takes me for EVER!!

AWESOME Irene! I love this guy. I am a hipster in training, haha. Many are my friends are practicing hipsters, Brooklyn, iPhones and all, lol. And I, too, love 'em. I think their style yields the best silhouettes!

I can't wait to see this finished. I would definitely buy one if you had this 2 Comic-Con or sumthin'!

Looks fantastic! I could concept hipsters to DEATH. Have to see too many of the mofos on a daily basis...

What do you use for your armature? I'm in the process of designing my first sculpt and am brand new at this. I want to use super sculpey for my first piece. Later on when I've gotten my sculpting chops I'll try maybe wax or better clay.

My email is hamiltoons1@aol.com. Love your work Irene!

Me dejo hacer una pedazo de escultura del que más te guste eh, JOJOJOJOJOJO

Es broma=) De verdad aluciné con tu curro. Fuera coñas, sería un pedazo de honor.

PD: Continua con esos trabjos cojonudos.

PD2: Es muy difícil vender esculturas? Ni idea sobre ese mundillo, aunque me encanta, aparte de coleccionar algunas, he tonteado con hacer abortos. A veces las uso para entender el volumen de los diseños.

I really dig the style on this one. Ryan told me about your work a while back, but I hadn't seen much outside of the Kuta sculpt until now. Awesome work.

Nice work. I'm looking forward to your tutorial.
