as you can clearly see, it looks human, which is already something, am I right? If you can recognize Leo Dicaprio, I’d suggest to get a pair of glasses haha :D

 

Edit : I filmed the process of sculpting this failed attempt and uploaded it on youtube :

Also, a reader send me a link to an article describing Leo as not such a great engaged environmentalist.
And while I still believe he has done A LOT more for the environment just because he happens to be famous and was able to speak at the UN about the issue, it is fair to scrutinize his own lifestyle a bit and not blame yourself if you decided to buy canned chickpeas instead of making them from scratch. (yes I blame myself for that on a regular basis)

That being said, I find it terrible that you have to be “perfect” to be engaged or an activist. So I won’t share that particular article, because I think it’s mostly sensationalist and feeds anger more than positive change. The article was in the daily mail, so I’m sure google can help you out if you must.

—————

Today, Leo won his first Oscar, woooot!
And because Leonardo Dicaprio is also pretty awesome otherwise, he’s also an environmentalist. (and THAT is a dear theme to me)
SO I was thrilled to see he took the chance to talk about climate change during his speech.

“Climate change is real. It is happening right now.”
“Let us not take this planet for granted.”
“stop procrastinating…For our children and for those people out there whose voices have been drowned out by the politics of greed.”

THANK YOU! I can shout as much as I want about the environment, but Leo has a bit more influence than I do (go figure!) so yaay!

I wanted to mark this day with some sort of sculpture, so I had the (stupid) idea to sculpt his face… and what can I say? 😀 I think the whole neighborhood heard me laughing during the different steps of the sculpt… pffmuhahahaha!!
So ahem, it is my first human sculpt, so I have a (sloppy) excuse, but I don’t even see a little ressemblance in the sculpture.
At some point, I just gave up and thought, hey! maybe with paint it’ll be better?
Nope. Nope. Nope. hahahaha XD
It’s probably about time to work on human faces, I suppose… huhuhu!

But Leo won! Yaay!
And let us not forget the planet!
If you are wondering what you can do about the environment, start with your meat.

    It’s wonderful, that such a famous person talks about such an important thing! I hope it will help!

    Ha ha ha yes it does not look like Leo at all lol.
    I just watched his speech and got tears in my eyes, I looove how involved he is with environmental issues, he drives an electric car for many years and has a very eco friendly island (the only thing he spent much money on) with sun energy etc, I love him for that, wish more in Hollywood would set such a good example and live more humbly and use their influence more wisely!

      Yes, I find it always wonderful when influential people like him do good.
      Too bad I sculpted someone else entirely haha!

    Actually I think your Leo is much cuter than the real one LOL Not sure why, he is a great actor, he chooses his films well and I love that he is so involved in “real” stuff…I still find him completely unattractive…

    Maybe you have sculpted a different Leo? 🙂
    And it was about time. He really should have gotten it 20 years ago for What’s eating Gilbert Grape.

      yes! an incredible movie! I also loved “this boy’s life” from the same time.
      But frankly, I probably liked most of his movies apart from “the wolf from wall street” which I found sickening at best.

    I might be a little bit mean 😀 but I don’t think he deserve it 🙁 butttt the only positive thing that came out of it was the climate talk, and I bow to him for that! So I am joining the Yeyyyyyyyy crowd! (from this point of view)

      Objectively you can’t say “he doesn’t deserve it”, as he’s been acting in a great number of movies. You might not like him much, and that’s fine, but he deserves it, as he worked hard for it.
      Also, I think we can objectively say his acting is good.
      But yes, clearly, and that’s true for me as well, his environmental speech is what I thought most important too!

    I believe that if this is your first Leo, it’s quite good!! Maybe you only have to change a little bit the eyes…
    It’s great that famous people work to improve the system giving example in their day-by-day.

    Looks like the whole planet was worrying about Leo )))) but I’m really glad he won finally!
    In my opinion even though we are not that big as Leo we still can do a lot fow Earth! Even small steps like produce less garbage is good!

      Yes, of course! Producing less garbage or also eating less meat, as I suggested in my post.
