|Jimi Hendrix bust in progress, 35″ height, shown in clay
There is still quite a bit of work left on this over life size bust of my favorite guitarist and musician Jimi Hendrix but I thought I would share the progress anyhow. The total height of the clay sculpture is 35 inches and it’s sculpted at 125% life size.
I hope to be finishing him in the next two or three weeks, but I’m in the middle of several freelance sculpting projects that will be taking up much of my time. At this point I’m about 12 hours into the clay work and I guestimate that I’ve got another 20 hours to go to get him where I’d like him to be. I’ll probably retain the looseness of the textures as that seems to fit the sculpture well, but the hair might take me some time.
