Made this as a surprise for my wonderful girlfriend
My first attempt at a sculpture and a diorama. Made with Sculpey, and other mixed media.
Very pleased with how it came out in the end, I learnt a lot during making this and will definitely be taking another sculpture project on soon.
The base used to be a cheeseboard, the rocks are from our garden, grass is actually from a reptile shop. The umbrella is made from canvas with a wire frame, supported by sculpey.
Totoro was made using a polystyrene core, wrapped in foil and sculpted around, which meant I could use a lot less clay for the main body while still being firm.
The most time consuming aspect was definitely the fur, which i used a craft knife to carve individual lines all over and then go over again for a more fine texture. They were then smoothed out a little with metholated spirits.
It has since been touched up a little more and varnished. I made a nice box for it as well.
I know this has been done before by the amazing, ultra awesome Feriowind who is so talented it takes my breath away...but redheadscientist, over at tumblr, had these very specific ideas and thoughts on Bruce's Pokemon team and I just HAD to draw them.
Here's my headcanon for Pokevengers: Tony Stark owns the largest item-producing company in all of Unova and he recruits Dr. Banner, the introverted expert on pokemon attacks from Kanto, for his team of consulting scientists to find new ways of using pokemon to produce clean energy for his factories. But then Tonyís Ninetales spends more and more time with Dr. Bannerís Umbreon and Stark finds himself drawn to the shy professor with a fondness for misunderstood pokemon and humans alike.
