I never really knew how much I would enjoy sculpting until about two years ago when I created the Myxies. I have always appreciated sculptors and their work but never considered myself one. Before I got started sculpting I often surfed the web for different artists. I gathered ideas on materials and techniques from them and along with watching “How to” videos on youtube I was encouraged to create my own.
These are a few amazing artists that inspired my sculptures.
http://www.goddess-dreams.com/sold.html Aidamaris Roman’s sculptures are so realistic, from the glass eyes to the fingernails, she is a very gifted artist.
http://pixiwillow.com/faerie_gallery.htm Michelle Bradshaw is incredible, so much detail in such little figures.
http://www.eirewolfcreations.com/ Erin Metcalf, her art is adorable, colorful and her creations are some of the most imaginative I have ever seen.
http://www.gossamerglen.com/gossamer%20glen/faeriecollection.htm Marchella has inspired my Myxies the most, her fairy tale, cartoonish creations are similar to what I was striving for with my own.
http://www.museumofhoaxes.com/hoax/weblog/permalink/huge_sculptures/ Ron Mueck, his HUGE sculptures are incredibly detailed and beautiful.

I hope these links can help any future sculptors find their inspiration the way they helped me.
