Don't be shy. by FarTooManyIdeas Don't be shy. by FarTooManyIdeas
Oh, Benedict Cumberbatch... I honestly didn't think I could love you more. But now, I LOVE YOU TO DEATH. DEATH. Get it? Death? You know, "I am DEATH." Haha. My Sherlock, I'm funny.

Made this before the movie came out, though after watching the trailer many many times. That one clip, where we first got a good glimpse of him, is what inspired this "pose". The sculpture was going to happen anyways (since I love the story, the book itself for it, and I love making sculptures), but the trailer gave me this specific idea. By the way, that movie was ABSOLUTELY AMAZING. The actors, animators, and concept artists really gave us something to behold. And my god, THAT SONG. Herz 

So, why has it taken so long for me to post it? Well, I took so many pictures of it, I haven't been able to decide! Now, I'm just gonna put them all up, 'cause otherwise, I'll never figure it out... Enjoy! :D

The book is Danish. Didn't have an English copy on hand and wouldn't have been able to wait anyways for one if I'd ordered.

Oh yes, Smaug is searching for the little hobbit who has jumped out of the book to try and escape him. coin:Coin:Super Mario Bros.3 CoincoinEye of Dragon:Coin:coin "WHERE ARE YOU?..." <da:thumb id="424237446"/>

Meiko Honma Menma (Excited) [V1] WOW. THANK YOU! Well... As this is fast becoming my most popular piece, I'll make a note here. At some point in the future (once time allows), I'll be making sculptures (wire/recycled/book sculptures like this and as are in my gallery) with the intention of maybe selling them. - - - Many different fairytales/stories/fandoms (making some super fans out there happy... If you've ANY SUGGESTIONS for books to be made into sculptures or what have you, by all means, leave them). - - - But, yeah. SO, if you're interested in my work, WATCH ME and that will let you know whenever I've something to sell. I imagine I'll put them up here on deviantart with a [FOR SALE] in the title and links. - - - THANKS AGAIN! AND HAPPY NEW YEAR! AND REMEMBER, SHERLOCK'S ON SUNDAY!

I just discovered this from geekgirls on Facebook. And I'm really impressed. I just finished marathoning the three hobbit film and Smaug is and will always me favorite character. I read the hobbit when I was little and loved the boom. The riddles AND the dragon. There is not shortage of love on it and then there's THIS beautiful piece you have managed to create! I'll about to continue surfing through the billions of comments you've received to make sure I'm not re asking an already answered question-then I'll check journal entries but...

How MUCH is this guy going to be sold for? I'm quite sure if you made one and stuck it in ebay it'd be a real zinger...I know I'd pay a LOT to have him. Because it's unique and absolutely stunning. Here's an instant conversation starter!!

I wonder, did you treat the paper with anything in particular so nothing too bad will happen to it?

There really ain't much better than riddles and a giant, sassy, talking dragon, is there? Lovely Shoujo (Nods) [V4] --- Aww thank you so much! :D

At the moment, the original is not for sale. As to if I'd make another one, I'd prefer not to recreate pieces, but I've yet to decide (as I know I could make some people very happy if I did). Lovely Shoujo (Heart for you) [V3] But I think I would like to try some other books first. I might very well make another "The Hobbit" sculpture though, either way, just perhaps a little differently, to keep things interesting. As a watcher, you'll get notice of my new art/book sculptures and also know if anything comes up for sale.

I plan to spray him with a coat of matte varnish, as well as my newer sculpture (which has not yet been posted). Simply haven't gotten around to it yet. But don't worry, he sits safe from harm atop a shelf and still looks just as he did. Lovely Shoujo Emoji (Huggy Hug) [V2]
