Sedrick from The Adventures of Wiglaf and Mordred ( [link] ) by =liliy.

Happy Birthday, =liliy, you end-of-March baby, you! :glomp: May your coming year be full of blessings and success!


Please forgive him not quite being finished and definitely not being on your doorstep by tomorrow. I ran into a few problems realizing a five-inch-high Sedrick, so he needs more time for another coat or so of paint.

Too cute :3

What's he made of( it looks like wood, but most likely clay)

Thanks! :D

This Sedrick model is made of foil, toothpicks, KrazyGlue, and SuperSculpey. The parts you see are SuperSculpey painted with acrylic paint. He probably looks like wood because I haven't gotten the skin paint to cover properly-- buff titanium is always more translucent than the darker colors, for some reason of formulation.

Ohhhhh.

Toothpicks and foil?
How'd that mold together?
It sounds terrible difficultD:

I'm terribly lazy, so I just leave it like it is.
Until I finally get bored of seeing it ugly

*Shrugs.* Try playing around with a piece of kitchen foil. It's likes sculpting clay, except it gets hard and pointy if one squeezes it too much. The thing is, if one twists one of the foil edges around a toothpick, folds the foil under and pierces it with the toothpick, and then bunches the foil around one end of the toothpick, the foil holds the toothpick quite firmly. After that, it's just a matter of smoothing polymer clay over the form and baking it, and it'll stay rigid (if a little brittle). The toothpicks end up acting like biscuits in cabinet-making: they're joint surfaces that keep the glue between two pieces from breaking.

Only to explain. Actually mushing the foil in the right way is almost intuitive.

Tee hee...that's so cute! And I was just thinking I wanted figurines of the WAM cast!! :D :glomp:

That is so cool...and for some reason it reminds me of Peanuts (as in Charlie Brown, not the nuts).

But that's all good. *pats his little head* Too cute. :D

Yay! The "Wapsi Square" artist just got professional figurines created and released for some of his cast-- you might want to check into the company he used. It works on a petition system based on the response of readers/potential customers. You probably have enough readers for it by now. :D

Yeah... that's because I was mainly working from your profile/three-quarters views, so things became slightly more rounded once they had to be adjusted slightly for front views. *Shakes head.* It's the best I can do, though, so I hope you'll accept it as a birthday present.

Happy Birthday! Hoping it goes really well for you!

*nod* I saw those. I also got a hold of the company that did the Dreamland Chronicle figurines. I've been thinking about it. :)


Ha ha; well, I gave you a really angular figure to work with. XD That can't be easy. I think it looks awesome. *glitter*

Will you be doing Wiglaf as an encore? :D

*Smiles wryly.* Probably not. If there's one thing this has taught me, it's that I don't have the necessary skills to capture Liliy's particular brand of human depiction in 3-D. Not to mention, I need to get back to using my SuperSculpey for sanctioned things-- I didn't really ask Liliy's permission to create this one.
