Default My work of art- Ringo sculpture

Thought I'd share this with you guys-- I put it together in about a month in my art class at school, it's a sculpture of the one and only Ringo. I feel pretty good about it, I've gotten a lot of compliments but it's not perfect. I just started sculpting in August so go easy.

Anyways, here's the pics-















Oh, and since I know you guys are all gonna ask:

Drums- Ludwig Classic Terra-Cotta (solid-shell drums), Black Oyster acrylic paint finish

2 x 3 Bass, 2 x 2 Floor Tom, 1 x 1.5 Rack Tom, 1 x 2 Snare Drum

Cymbals- Zildjian

2.25" Avedis Hi-Hats, 3" Avedis Medium Ride, 3.25" Avedis Medium Ride

Pro-Mark Toothpicks, no-name hardware and throne, Remo Coated Amb. on batter and Emp. reso heads, bass front head w/ vintage Ludwig logo and Beatles logo

I'm a little worried about the quality of the new Ludwig Class Terra-Cotta. The solid shells have unmatched tone but the mounting hardware is terrible. The rack tom and bass are drilled into, and the snare and floor have hardware going though their reso. heads. Also it appears that the drums are not perfectly in round.

The whole sculpture stands about 9 and a half inches form the ground.

That is awesome! Where can I buy one? Seriously, I'll bet that would sell on ebay, you should do all of The Beatles, I'd buy them all.

Thanks for the replies! He's one-of-a-kind so no I don't think I'm going to sell him. Unfortunately I can't sculpt the rest of the band either because my class is already heading into woodcarving, and won't be sculpting again. If I had some free time I might do the other members but I don't think it's happening right now.

And if you suggest that I woodcarve the rest of the band, I'm not so sure about that one. It'd be hard but maybe I'll consider it.

That's great! I love the camera angles, it makes it look more realistic. You should email pics to Ringo himself.

I believe you recently acquired a set of Gretsch Renown maple drums?

I'll take those. PM me for my address. ;-)
