I wanted to let you know that you inspired me to sculpt this Lion. I’m 75 years old and a want to be sculptor. Watching your videos made me think maybe I could possibly sculpt a Lion head. I’m just a beginner at sculpting but I’m sure glad you made the video, I may not have ever tried to make the Lion without your video. Thank you so very much.

WOW! It is hard to believe this is your first sculpture! It is gorgeous! Keep up the good work. Congrats!!
Jim, I’m your age, and you have shown me up. This is really beautiful. Obviously you have talent. The finish is really nice. I was in England decades ago and heads of lions are very popular. I loved the ones like that they were used as door knockers. And I’m not suggesting drilling any holes in for a knocker, but this is truly a beautiful lion.
You are 75 years young with tons of talent! Lovely loins head…you must have spent hours sanding it to that smooth finish. Nice work!
I meant lion, not lion!
Very nice, Jim! It’s a lovely lion. I can’t wait to see what you make next. 🙂
