Road to Eldorado Ornamental Egg

Sculptures

 

 

My third egg. With a good comedic script, a score by Elton John and Tim Rice (Lion King), and decent animation it’s hard to believe that Road to El Dorado was Dreamwork’s only box-office loss but it’s slowly been picking up a following over time and this was one of the funner eggs to create. Who doesn’t love to work with the color gold?

Prince of Egypt Ornamental Egg

Sculptures

 

Second one! The Prince of Egypt. Though more forgotten than underrated, it still manages a ‘classic’ status. Dreamworks made a bold choice having their 2nd film be a Biblical animated musical but it sure paid off. It brought forth an epic story of equally epic animation.

Sinbad: Legends of the Seven Seas Ornamental Egg

Sculptures

The start of a new sculpting series I’m doing. When I was younger I made a Fabergé egg replica and recently have decided to try to attempt this again but with a added theme. Each one I make is going to be based off of a different Dreamworks animated movie (typical me).

As such I will only be doing period films. As much as I love the film, making an ornamental egg about Madagascar just doesn’t seem right.

The first one out of the bunch, Sinbad: Legends of the Seven Seas. A rather underrated film, and Dreamwork’s last traditionally/hand-drawn animated movie.

Sincato comforts Jo

Sculptures

Years back, my online friend decided to bring both of our fanfiction characters together for a story and I have to say he did a bang-up job. In tribute, I decided to sculpt our two characters together in one of the short story’s final scenes.

The legs on the bench had to be taken down nearly 3 times because I realized that it would inadvertently make Jo's legs longer than Sincato's. The ombré effect on Sincato's tail took some time.

I wanted Jo's look to convey doubtfulness at his recent actions.

Sincato's eyes proved a little harder given there size. Eyes have always been the trickiest part of sculpting for me. They make the character so much. even if they are just off a little bit, the whole character can be different.

After reaching a secluded section of the village where several trees stood and a single stone bench was provided to enjoy the trees when in bloom, the badger sat down on the bench as the raccoon stood with his arms crossed, feeling the cool breeze a bit. “What did you want to talk about?” Sincato asked even though he had an bit of an idea already, the badger looked up to him and sighed. “I don’t know how to deal with this, with what happened today and nor do I know how to tell Po about it. I feel like I did something wrong but at the same time it was right but I was raised to believe it isn’t right by any means.” He looked to the raccoon who stared down at him. “I can’t really imagine what Po was thinking when he saw me, covered practically in-“

Jo sat back a bit, resting his paws on his lap as he took this in. Sincato looked off to the distance as he rubbed his paws together. As he looked back down at the badger, just by staring into the boy’s eyes he could see alot was still on his mind. “You’re somewhat new to killing, aren’t you?” The badger met his gaze and nodded, “How do you find it so easy to do what you did today? I just want to know…” Jo asked, the raccoon sat down next to him and stared down at the grass, “I, guess certain people are just worth more to me then others. The Shim’s, they’re my chance to rebuild myself from the ground up, I don’t wish to lose them too.”
