So finally i'm uploading pics of one of my newest pieces of sculpture. The largest piece by quite a bit, this briaxen was a WHOLE new kettle of fish for me for various reasons.
1) I made it using super sculpey, which i've never used before and it was a whole new thing. Very different from fimo which is the only polymer clay i've used before. I've come to the conclusion that I will be using fimo for jewellery, charms and small sculpts or accessories for bigger sculpts. AND that i will be using sculpey for big sculptures because its much easier to work with. (Although i still find painting a huge pain in the ass)
And 2) I was working with not only a wooden base, but also a very dynamic pose with the armature only attached by one leg. Yes I was unintentionally over ambitous, and i'm lucky it didn't go catastrophically wrong, but it didn't so yay.
IT IS FOR SALE SO NOTE OR MESSAGE ME FOR INFO. The photos are terrible I know but i cant help that with the terrible lighting that i have. So i will be updating these sometime in the future, whenever possible. And i wont be putting it up on etsy until February because I will be away most of january, but i will ship it before hand if someone notes me.
The colours are MUCH better in real life. The paint job is very accurate, the yellow isn't too bright, too match official artwork.
The grass and rocks are all hand sculpted and painted, as is everything else. A few bits have my own twist added to them, like her tail tuft where she sticks her wand is fuzzier on mine because i reasoned the hair would get a bit ruffled and matted, and her wand isn't just two pronged, the prongs twist in a very slight helix like pattern, because I thought it suited her more, and I love the way it looks. Its like gandalfs staff where the wood is twined beautifully.
The fire is a sparkiling slightly translucent purple and yellow mix of fimo. This way it holds great depth and really emulates flames.
I greatly prefer to see pokemon scupltures with the pokemon(s) using a move and that's why this little vixen (see what I did there) is performing a fiery incantation, most likely mystic fire. The power moves through her, into her hand, channeled through her wand and even twines about her feet casting an ambient glow in its wake.
