They've been telling me that before ;) Tim Burton is also named a lot although I can't see that myself.
It's a huge compliment!

I cannot explain why, but every time I look at this I think of Mary Poppins.
What is wrong with me? :XD:

Happy to hear that! I was becoming concerned :P
Seeing Mary Poppins in place of other things should probably be regarded a clinical sign of insanity :XD:

Hahaha :XD: Indeed!

I probably forgot to tell you that your sclupture looks very intriguing and it's like it tells a story, but only through hints and clues, so the viewer has to piece it together himself/herself. Really cool :)

That is my intention, tell a story through small hints so it's so cool you get it!

I have no idea what "sclupture" means, but your sculpture is very cool.

Well, kudos to you! That's all thanks to you, that's your accomplishment ^^
And I'm happy that I understood it, for both of us =D

Is it fun to work with skulls? It's quite different....
Reply
:iconestherverschoor:
EstherVerschoor Featured By Owner Nov 8, 2013  Professional Artist
For me it is but I also love to work with clay, fabric etc.
But with skulls there's a bit more emotion involved, at least for me it is.

I want to work with fabric and during my development (I'm currently doing my Art GCSE) I'm going to work with clay a bit. ^w^
