Aquarium by sculptin Aquarium by sculptin
Sculpted during the 2008 Harrison Hot Springs "Most Beautiful Castle Competition". There were 3 teams or "cities" competing, And I was on Team Victoria with 5 other very talented teammates.I spent most of my time creating left pile. It was fun, and I'm tickled just to be a part of it, amidst the best sand sculptors in the world.

Update: We did win Peoples Choice!

Here are some shots of the piece taken by the deviant Arien-Eska :iconarien-eska:

Daily Deviation

Given 2009-07-20
The variety of both textures and details in Aquarium by ~sculptin is really striking especially given that it is all constructed from sand. ( Featured by Thebuild )

Out of all the stuff in your gallery, i must say in my very hinest opinion, this is good, keep it up!

Sorry i cant comment on all the others because im on a commenting frenzy-to individual deviants. Yes, i got lots of time to waste.

But Jack has something to say to you.

Impossible.... How did it stay together? It couldn't be just water could it? This is phenomenal. You should really be pleased; sculpture is a rare gift. Mae govannen.

just water, yes. But it isn't washed beach sand, it is sharp dirty pit sand.
