You make such stunning sculptures! They are so beautiful and look as though they might gallop off at any moment c:
May i ask how you attach the pieces of wood to one another?

I'm floored by how well you captured the anatomy, poise, and motion of the horse in that medium, and am wondering how much shaping was required.

Very minimum shaping as I have to preserve the nature of the medium.

Good lord man. How long did it take to find the driftwood to fit like that?

out of curiosity,is the driftwood in its natural state?or have some parts been shaped to suit? the first thing i noticed was the legs,especially around the fetlocks are so life like

:iconghoff24:
ghoff24 Featured By Owner Dec 3, 2012  Professional Traditional Artist
They are at their natural state, only very little part if I had to cut correctly at an angle.

this looks very interesting, the driftwood logs do a very good job of mimicing the muscleture

There are quite a few artists who specializing in this type of art, you may find in the US and there are two from UK as far as I know.
