Yu-Gi-Oh: Pharaoh Atem

Commission for :iconziimy:, who wanted a dragon version of her favorite Yu-Gi-Oh! character, Pharaoh Atem! Wow, what a wonderfully complex character design. I tried to fit in what I could. My favorite part is the freely dangling earrings, though I'm quite pleased with how the hair/horns turned out too. I never got into Yu-Gi-Oh!, but Yugi/Yami Yugi/Atem will always stand out in my mind as having the most ridiculous anime hair ever. :XD:

This is one of those pieces where I started out intimidated by what I had to make, to feeling like I had really nailed it when I finished. So pleased that everything came together at the end! Crafted from colored polymer clay, mica powder, and jewelry findings. About 2 inches tall.

what clay do you use again help me up off the groundI think I've fainted. 
HowManyDragons's avatar
I use colored, oven-bake polymer clay. I like the Premo brand the best, but there are other options out there, like Fimo and Sculpey III.
I hope that helps!

Ahhh, I can't believe you made an Atem dragon!! He looks so AWESOMEEEEE 8D
For such an incredibly detailed design, you've really done an amazing job here! I can't get over just how MUCH detail you've put into him! The head band, his BANGS, and the earrings???? AMAZING. Not to mention the puzzle around his neck too x3 Also I love how you've made his belly plates the colour of his clothes- that's a really nice touch! You've really captured Atem's essence here~ :D
