i coulda been a gargoyle

The frog sculpt’s destiny as a gargoyle was thwarted by everyone at the studio who bemoaned that it was too much a frog to be a gargoyle and that I should make a different gargoyle frog. I proved too weak to fight and succumbed to artsy pressure. So now, the frog who could have been a gargoyle is just a frog drying and waiting to be fired. *sigh*

before frogs become gargoyles

they are just frogs.

Made reasonable progress on the little frog gargoyle today. Next week I’ll hollow him out (which consists of slicing him in two, scooping out the innards and then smooshing him back together. Sculpture is not a gentle art form. After that he’ll get his gargoyle wings, maybe fangs or a horn and some details on his skin.

but…

Everybody at the studio wants me to leave him as an ordinary frog. They said, make a different frog into a gargoyle.

argh.

Doing a series of unlikely gargoyles is going to be more difficult than I thought.

Here’s froggy so far…
