a little gift for myself~

I didn't get to do much during the con this year, barely bought any books and hardly got to walk around, but i made time to see some of the amazing artist demos. i bought this Rick Berry piece right after i saw his demo, so inspiring was this man's working. i don't know if this was how Rodin works, pulling shapes out of stone and seeing it become something out of its own will, just helping it here and there with his mastery, but the energy feels very much the same. Check out his site if you havn't done so already:

And Thanks to Tor.com & Spectrum Fantasy Arts, we have some demo videos on Youtube:

Thank you, thank you, I wanted to see all of these but was only at the con for one day and missed the demo for that anyway.

That's a great Berry piece you have. One thing I always admired about his work is that his figures look as if they are actually alive with their own thoughts. Thanks for posting the vids!
