Recently, good friend and well known movie critic Leonard Maltin asked me to do a demonstration on "Sculpting Donald" for the release of the latest Chronological Donald DVD, Volume 3. It's part of the Bonus features on Disc 2. Above are some screen captures from the interview... The DVD itself features the most prolific character of “Walt’s Fab Five,” the short-tempered but hilarious Donald Duck in 31 solo shorts from 1947 through 1950. Bonus materials include: • “The Many Faces of Donald Duck”: A retrospective look at Donald’s career including insight from Tony Anselmo, Disney animator and the current voice of Donald • “Sculpting Donald”: Sculptor Ruben Procopio discusses the challenges of creating a 3D model of a 2D character • “Donald Duck on the Mickey Mouse Club”: an Easter Egg Hunt for all 10 variations of the Donald Duck gag at the end of the popular show’s opening titles You can order your set here!

Even in its rough state, that's a very nice statue of Donald. If finished, I wouldn't mind picking it up for myself (for a reasonable price, of course).
