CM- Calvin and Hobbes Complete by BlackHoleInAJar CM- Calvin and Hobbes Complete by BlackHoleInAJar
It's finished! Calvin and Hobbes' flight to Stony Gulch ended like all their other flights.:XD:
This is was commissioned by *jafo1723 :iconjafo1723:. I always liked Calvin and Hobbes. The humor, the wit, and especially the adventures and views of a crazy kid! On top of all that, the comic was also renowned for Bill Waterson's incredible, imaginative artwork! Something that just isn't seen in newspaper comics anymore, or even in graphic novel sorts of comics.


Calvin and Hobbes are owned by Bill Waterson.

You like this? Want something like it? For commission information, see here: SCULPTURE COMMISSIONS TABLEWHAT I DO:
I am a sculptor who mainly uses polymer clays and epoxy clays to make my projects. I specialize in animal and non-human characters. I could do a human character but I promise nothing. My work speaks for itself, as do my customers. I am willing to do an art trade but because of the inherent nature of sculpture work, I can all but guarantee you won't like the terms. Because of the responsibilities of life and the complexities of sculpture work, it is very difficult for me to give an accurate date of completion. If project is needed by a certain time, be sure to contact me well before you need it; especially for something like a wedding cake topper or a gift of some sort. Some projects may take a few weeks while others take months.
[NOTE: Some examples given are a few years old and are not necessarily a reflection of my current sculpting abilities. My skill have improved since the time these pieces were completed.]

Jafo has good taste. Too few Calvin and Hobbes sculptures out there.

Might had to read that commission FAQ of yours, this is very nice work, and like you said, you're only getting better as time goes on.

Wow, that's neat. Brings back childhood memories of reading the comic at my piano teacher's place. I love the dynamic poses you put them in.

Oh wow, I'm SO, so glad that I came back on time to see this finally finished! :love: STUNNING as ever Harry, even the GRASS! Wow! (Thought I'd be different by not commenting on his hair! ;P Which I know would have given a headache or two! >.<; )

But in all seriousness, this is fabulous work! I love the vivid colours and the intricacy of your hand (by the way, clever idea for the hair! I've been reading the comments. ;) )

Well done! :clap: :D :aww:

AND yes, the grass was quite hard. It was either spend hours making individual grass blades or "sheets" or buy and use that mealy fake turf stuff they use on model trains and dioramas. I don't have anything against using that stuff, it's just, to me, it doesn't look enough like grass, especially on larger pieces. Looks more like moss or mold.;P

Anyway, thanks a bunch.:)

Yes, figuring out the hair was difficult but not quite as hard as getting the grass texture.

How on earth did you manage to make Calvin's hair?! I once tried to make a figure of the British Dennis the Menace but gave up because I really couldn't figure out how to make his hair.
This piece is fantastic!

I rolled a bunch of little cones and pressed them onto his already baked head and blended them together. I then wicked some lines into it with a needle for better effect. :)
