Wow it's amazing to put things together and see how much you've improved! Like last year, I have nooooo idea when I made everything so I used the date of submission to DA, so dates may not correspond to the real date of sculpting I'm proud to see that this year I made a lot of different things, I expanded into doing more complicated pieces, new techniques and specially, I finally began making figurines!
I just read last year's meme and I said that "doing figurines is not my thing", but actually this year I enjoyed it and they came out quite nicely I'm glad I gave it another try! 2013 will be the year I make my first mini human, I already have it planned and I even have a brave volunteer who will receive my first figurines, even if they are ugly and creepy XD hopefully they won't!
After I took this picture I really wanted a glass of milk!
I really enjoyed making these earrings! Not only because I just love chocolate chip cookies but also because I like the new technique I used. Instead of just putting the pieces of chocolate on top I baked the pieces, rolled them into the clay, and THEN shaped the cookie. So yeah, I really liked this pair!
I almost put "Scourge from Warriors", but Scourge has also become such a overrated character I think most people who don't even know about Warrior Cats will know who he is. Anyway, I (and I am sure most people) am annoyed by rabid Warrior fans saying "Oh, that reminds me of (insert name here)", or "wow, that looks so much like (insert name here)". I am not saying you can't have freedom to express your thoughts, but I can tell you from experience that - most - artists do not like people saying that their character reminds you of another's design. In fact, I've even had people say my dog OC, Lantinari, looks like Scourge. Lantinari is solid black. He has brown eyes. He didn't have a stupid past that made him evil. He is does not have a collar. He is a Border Collie. Scourge is black-and-white. He has blue eyes. He has a collar. He is very tiny. He is a cat. I think the difference is rather obvious. The few things they have in common are the fact they are mostly black, and are leaders (or in Lantinari's case, to some extent).
TL;DR: Running around saying every single black cat looks like Scourge is just annoying and, slightly disgraceful to the artist/photographer.
