Nightmare Before Christmas

Awhile back, I was invited to show my work in Belmont Shore for an arts walk festival. I agreed and decided to sculpt something as well live at the show. Showing up, I still had no idea what I was going to sculpt. After everything was setup, I finally decided to sculpt Jack Skellington from Tim Burtons classic "Nightmare Before Christmas." Long story short, I sculpted Jack and the swirling hill he stands on at the show and it was a big hit. I got a lot of love from people, kids and adults, stopping by simply to show their appreciation. Fast forward a couple months down the line, I painted jack and the hill on the wooden base. I was going to call it a rap on it but something was not quite right yet. I decided to sculpt more. The base was too simple. So I sculpted a fence, some pumpkins, a cross, a grave marker and the landscaping around Jack. Here are the results....
