Moment of Truth/Friend or Foe (full view, left) by reedymanedkelpie Moment of Truth/Friend or Foe (full view, left) by reedymanedkelpie
Here is a full view of the left side. Moment of Truth, Friend or Foe. Alabaster, about two feet high. I'm optimistic; I don't think the warrior will panic and lose his grip.
Added:
The initial idea came from the client, but of course it grew as the dragon and prince began to form out of the stone. The warrior prince climbs a high mountain to reach a special treasure, but when he pulls himself to the top of the last peak and thinks he's now within reach of safety and treasure, he comes eye-to-eye with the guardian dragon.

So the question is, exhausted, clinging precariously to the edge of a drop into a deep chasm, faced with overwhelming superiority in strength, speed, and perhaps wisdom, what will he do? What will the dragon do?

In my gallery I have some photos of this piece from other angles.

Beautiful roundup! It's a treat to see them all together like this. :)
Thanks for letting me know. The DD has inspired me to get more work done.
There's one thing though... I'm wondering about the nomination to Artisan Crafts when my work is actually in the sculpture category. Are the categories that flexible?

No problem, and I'm glad that it has inspired you! :) That's great to know, I'll be stalking your gallery to see what you upload next ;)

Well there's no dedicated sculpture community volunteer yet, so the artisan craft CV's help whenever we can to feature some sculptures too :) there's a tiny bit of overlap between the two categories, so we help each other.

Thank you, although I am a slow worker.

I think I volunteered at one point to be community volunteer for sculpture. I never heard back, but I'd still be interested. I haven't been on DeviantART long, only seven months, (I still remember my bafflement over being given a llama :confused:). I've also had a group, CosmicRoots [link], for six months now. I don't know if I'd be considered too selective(?) but I think the group might show what I look for in artwork and how I interact with other members. :)
