Well this started as a rant doodle xD" I found the sketch of Farren after the emotions behind it passed and decided to turn it around and draw this. The grass just kinda happened >>' Looks pretty awful but it was fun to do at least. Just to clarify, Farren is not gigantic, he's pretty small for a wolf, Scritch is just tiny xD Scritch is just one of those happy things who want to see everyone smile. Unfortunately for him Farren is kind of a lost cause, but he's a determined little puff ball xD
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.
