Little Naga Sculpture

I've been feeling a little burnt out lately after so much convention prep and commissions, so I decided to take a small break to work on a personal project. :)

I fell in love with Naga from the Legend of Korra the moment I saw her, and have been dying to make a Naga of my very own. Not long ago I stumbled across the most adorable Tumblr blog, Ask Little Naga([link]). Her version of Naga is just so adorable, I knew it would make the perfect sculpture! With her permission I based this figure off of one of her super cute drawings! :D

Naga is approximately 2 inches tall and 5 inches long. She is made from a mixture of Super Sculpey/Sculpey Firm polymer clay over a wire and foil armature. She is painted with acrylics and sealed with Testors Dullcote. The eyes and nose are glazed using Varathane's water-based Polyurethane for extra shine.

Wow, this is really good! The face is awesome - I love how you did the eyes. And I don't know how you keep the white so clean, I find it impossible

Aww, thanks so much! :D White can be such a paint. I just try to be as careful as possible and keep my workspace and paintbrush as clean as I can.

White is a pain, I still need to learn how to handle it D: I think this turned out fabulous though!

This is very adorable, and also reminds me of Bolt. :) Don't know if you noticed that or not.

Thanks so much! :D You're actually the second person to mention that she reminds them of Bolt. XD I didn't notice it at first, but I can certainly see why it might remind people of him. With the big nose and the white fur and all. ^^

Speaking of, Bolt is super adorable, I would love to sculpt him one day. ;)
