--------------------------------------------------------------------------- I had fun sculpting this Fantasy Arctic Tundra Stag. I could picture him trudging his way through an arctic snowstorm, head down, fighting against the howling blizzard. This stag is the only one of its kind, a unique piece of art, hand sculpted, poseable, fantasy creature being offered up for bid!
This is a completely hand made creation. I hand sculpted the head and cloven hooves onto a posable wire skeleton that I made and wrapped it with stuffing. Parts of the imitation fur I have hand dyed while maintaining full softness. I hand paint the clay head, antlers and hoofs with acrylics. There is not another creature like this in the world!
I do not use molds, casts or patterns, each is fully hand made and original. However for antlers on this creature I used a hard composite, commercially made set as they would be far to brittle if made with clay & wire.
The stag is approximately 21 1/2 inches long and 15 /12 inches tall. I sign each one on the side of the foot, back of the ear or under the jaw.
Thank you for looking at my creations and good luck bidding-
Still a Under Going Project: (still not good enough needs alot of work!)
I have been thinking this up for quite a few years now when I was a kid the first wolf pelt I ever seen was owned by my aunt who had a grey and black Taxidermy wolf headdress. I had the idea. The whole idea going to Taxidermy School was to learn how to make these..............load and behold I became a "Plushidermist" and not the "Rogue Taxidermist" as I dreamed when I started this.
The idea was definitely in mind when I was into the R.U.N. years back and dreamed to actually go through with it but it just never happened......... So this is actually considered a R.U.N. Headress.....Although I never actually gone through with the idea it came up not too long ago when I was Chatting with a friend and realized I had all I needed to do was get my ass up and actually do it! After all everything I needed at the time was already in The house, I already had the form, the wolf (wolves) and neither where selling so I picked a wolf and started the work.
I did not like the form I had, the nose to me was way too bulky and square so I shaved and sanded half of it down to define different features in the face and finished them off with thin clay. Not that it’s a natural look but this thing wasn’t intended to be 100% natural looking.
I was originally going to put this with the March Sale but I don’t think I’m going have it. Besides it won’t be done by then. I am really hoping I can bring this up to my tribe to see if any of them would be interested in this as a Native American Headdress for dancing. I think she would be best suited for that instead. Although we are the rabbit tribe I think Coyote is best suited for my people hahahaha a lot of them are Big Wolf totem scratchers. Naturally I’m a coyote……….and I’m pretty sure you can see why.
I will look forward to working on more of these! I hope everybody can Enjoy!!
PLEASE NOTE: I didn’t go to school for Photography, I went to school for Taxidermy! My pictures are not the best!
Sorry about the horrible quality that is my camera.
A commission from someone on FA.
It was commissioned cheap-ish as a test pattern, so lots of little flaws, which will be worked out hopefuly in my next plush using this pattern. One thing I love though are her pawd pads and that big ol' tail.
I am not offering these as commissions at the moment, AND, all my plush commissions are closed at the moment anyways.
Front paw pads:
OFF TO WATCH MORE GAME GRUMPS LDKFJLKSD Okay, mainly listen, because who just sits there lookin' at the screen?
something silly. But way out in left field for us, no?
Starting to move into clay, there's just so much more that can be done with it This was just a little experiment, mostly to test the new material and such, test baking times, what paints work best, what sandpaper works best etc.
This is unfinished (mostly because of a small mistake made with the sanding part, so decided not to finish it), started out as just a personal little wolf but turned into you know who ^^ probably won't be finishing it or anything, already learned what I needed to from it. I'd like to start making little animal necklaces (or even OC necklaces) and so just playing around with the clay to see what we can do. I've seen a lot of clay jewelry so I'm hoping we can create some unique stuff with it ^^
There's only one of us working with the clay, the rest are still doing the metal work I'd really like to see what kind of different things the clay can do in terms of making jewelry!
The first finished element of my Alice: Madness Returns cosplay.
The blade was made of wood. The floral engravings were cut out of cardboard (took ages to do it), then glued on the blade. The final step was to cover it with silver metal leaves.
The core of the handle is also wood and I formed it from polymer clay. The floral ornaments are made of liquid pearl. The whole handle was painted dark brown, the ornaments were 'gilded' with gold metal leaves then varnished with gold 'Chameleon' effect varnish. I have also carved 'Est 1865' and 'VORPAL' into the rim of the hadle.
This weapon is extremely light and easy to wield - it only lacks some blood.
Total lenght: 49 cm (~19") Blade lenght: 30 cm (~11.75")
