Mantis- just that the statue can stand without needing external support. So something like a ballerina would probably not be free standing because there would be very little surface area touching the ground.

Thank you.
By free-standing I mean: Not a part of a larger structure, and able to support it's own weight.

Hey,
Im thinking that it would be kinda cool to continue the story monte started to get our imaginations going to accompany our sculpts or concepts.
You dont have to if you think its a crappy idea but it could be interesting to see just how disturbing you people are

so here is mine

'As I emerged into a twilight landscape, the night mists were already abroad, rising swiftly as they were from the fringes of the cemetery and slipping across its graves like cobwebs. In the West, a murder of crows made wing towards the failing sun, until, within that wooded horizon their black forms were lost amidst an ancient battalion of pines that stood vast and unmoving, the shadows beneath their boughs ancient and impenetrable. I stepped out of the small archway and on to cobbles. Ahead of me, a countless array of statues marked an arrow-straight path to a vast but distant portal, beyond which the flames of a nightmare realm beckoned; my first glimpse of the place I had travelled so far to find.
Yet, there was no one to guard it. There were only these statues, a rank of curious visions frozen in stone. What were they, I asked myself, the fallen victims to a quest such as mine? The sleeping guardians of this realm? Or were they merely visions of the nightmares that awaited me: a silent warning that I should turn back now?
Within five paces I had reached the first. I looked up...'



A young girl holds a flower in both hands presenting it forward as if it were a gift. The flower is withered and broken, her hands are bleeding from where the thorns have dug into her flesh. She seems unaware of the pain for she is smiling, innocent and carefree. Yet there is something subtle about her that haunts me more than the violent and gruesome images I expected to see, a look of immense dread in her dead eyes. I tear my gaze from hers unable to rid myself of the all consuming feeling of despair that her silent scream wove upon me. I steel myself for the torment that await and walk on, unaware of the horror that shadows her.

Feels a bit out of my league ...
