Two innocent acorns Piet found
While looking around on the ground.
Then he saw an curved leaf
Near his Chincoteague fief
And his Freudian brain came unwound.

I do love it.

Ha! Unwound is right!
From a little acorn, to...

This is about as far as my imagination can take it - next I would have to crack a book on anatomy, but first I need to read more about drawing and painting and such. Let's end this mess by saying that it came further than I expected. But even so, this was more a journey of transformation vs creation.. We do what we can.

I'd say your drawing and painting skills are progressing quite nicely......

you are a kind man Frank.

Lessons learned - If I ever were to do something like this again, I would first have a reference image that I wished to emulate, and then I would photograph the building blocks in the proper light and the object in the proper orientation. I think the image would be ten fold easier to accomplish then.

I am still most curious: did you find a specific nuts-to-boobs tutorial somewhere, or did you think up this entire project yourself? I remain astounded at what you created in this project. I'd be more interested in turning a styrofoam cup into an egret, or maybe a corroded dam into a beautiful waterfall, but still. Same principle.

no, this was all me. I get one hundred percent of the glory or the blame! I really should have thought about this before (like the eagle head made from wood). But anyway, I keep reading about how most forms are made from a combination of certain shapes. With the acorns I happened to notice that most of the shape was already there. Going to B/W helps, because then the object attains a neutral color out of an incorrect one.

I listen to my dumb ideas - this is not always a good thing to do!
