Okay, so its been awhile....a really long while since Ive been able to post any journal entries, let alone pictures. My name sounds busy enough with out adding the hours of work is needed to make anything. I have been working on a Kirin since about August when all of the supplies finally came in. Its very large though, much larger than I anticipated originally so its taking a lot of time to finish. I have been reluctant to post any WIP pics but the face and neck are complete. Im sculpting his back end now, which I put on hold until things from the holiday season calm down.
Speaking of the holiday's, I signed up for a holiday ornament swap on the Windstone Editions forum. After you sign up, your given a random name with that persons likes and interests. We then had to hand make an ornament for who ever you got. Wouldnt you know the person I was to make something for was scenceable (you can find her here as well as FB. Her studio name is Quoquenox Art). She is the person responsible for inspiring me to try sculpting!!! I wanted to make something truly special for her. I had to set my Kirin down, and start a new one...much smaller but it turned out to be my very first completed sculpture!!!
Its a rearing Kirin with wings that are posable. She can hang on a Christmas tree, or free stand on a shelf. Shes maybe 4 inches tall though I never actually measures it. I named her Jewel as I thought it suited her in her shiny, sparkly pink and lavender colors. She has a coat pattern of a blanket appaloosa and has lots of sparkly spots. She may not be perfect but she was my first non- the less so im still very proud.
Also in the works is a portrait sculpt of a friends horse. She has done so much for me so I wanted to make her something she would really love. She has a snow flake Appaloosa quarter horse. Im nearly done with the sculpting part and will hopefully begin painting it soon after. I guess after that I can try and finish up the sculpture that was supposed to be my first....the big rearing Kirin
