As promised, this is The Thinker. I really like the lighting on this one, which was totally an accident! I think I was trying to cover up the fact that he’s definitely missing legs. 😮
You can tell at this point I was getting very detailed, actually erasing my mistakes. Similar style to the Prayers sketch. Both represent my favorite period of work – I’m so in love with the way they each turned out!
Isn’t he great? I don’t particularly know why I like it so much. His eye came out really well and his nose doesn’t look like a pig, maybe that’s it.
The name comes from the obvious – The Thinker sculpture, by Le Penseur – but I’d like to do something more with it. Maybe down the road I’ll do another one with legs…we’ll see.
I do believe I am happy with this one, as he’s one of my favorites. 🙂
