'Butterscotch' - World of Warcraft Fan Art Yak by Dreamspirit 'Butterscotch' - World of Warcraft Fan Art Yak by Dreamspirit

“Butterscotch” – Mixed Media World of Warcraft Fan Art Yak Soft Sculpture
Started on November 3rd, 2012, Completed on July 26, 2015

Dive into my newest blog about this mixed media soft sculpture, which features an in-depth walkthrough with over 106 process photos! -> bit.ly/1D801Ze

Just after World of Warcraft’s Fourth Expansion, Mists of Pandaria, launched on September 25th, 2012, a dear friend of mine (Cynthia Reep, aka. Oneirosuchus) was visiting me from out-of-state for a trip to Southern California. In addition to attending (and for me: working) BlizzCon, we had a number of adventures in mind, including our semi-yearly creative projects. Somewhere amid our scheming and plotting, we decided that maybe we could try our hands on a soft sculpture, and with Mists of Pandaria on the brain, we decided that our first order of business would be to create yak fan art modeled off of the yaks in Pandaria.

On around November 3rd, 2012, our planning began in earnest, and to be fair: neither of us had any idea what we were in for, nor that this project would end up spanning a number of years. >_> …nearly three, to be exact.


Total size: 14.5 x 12.5 x 7 inches in size and around twelve pounds in weight.

Materials: Steel and Aluminum armature wire, steel epoxy putty, Super Sculpey, Sculpey Firm, quilting, poyfill, steel fishing weights, faux fur, fabric, ribbon copper, plastic eyes, acrylic paint, sealant, and lots and lots of love. 

Time Taken: Approximately 100-150 hours over the course of nearly three years.

Thanks so much! :D The yaks in game don't have much detail on their faces, so I had to reference real yaks and then exaggerate the proportions a bit in order to heighten the cute factor. I'm ever-so glad you like the end result!
