Cliff Notes

*Note the cliff note. Hahahahaha!*

This is what I most strongly saw in a piece of jade bought from BeadersBoutique. I may revise. The stone is a pretty translucent new jade stone. It might do better with form, than relief. But I love the idea of Icarus staring at the ocean before he takes off. Somehow I identify with it. ;)

edit: I think I'll stick with a simple torso for my first carving! lol. I decided the above scene might be just a *tad* complex.

Looks like a lot of work..I give you credit for anything you do with it.

Wow, very cool! I wouldn't have gotten what you described in your drawing without your drawing, but now that I've seen it that way its almost impossible to see it in any other. Good luck working with it!

Interesting how different artists will envision a different finished product from the same beginning. I'd love to see a sampling of various interpretations (I don't qualify, since I have never sculpted or drawn.)

It'll be cool to see how you develop this into your vision.
