This was made using Blender for my art and technology class. I started this project thinking about the phoenix from Chinese mythology. However, I did not sculpt in the details to make that differentiation yet. The entire sculpture was made created using basic volumes; I didn't use the sculpt tool at all. I think having an approach like that is very similar to massing things out like in drawing and traditional sculpting, and the result looks very clean.

Overall, I am pretty happy with how this one turned out and I look forward to making more sculptures. Below you'll find an interactive viewer for my piece.
