Fantastic work!   Smiley
Truly amazing!!   Cheesy
You are so talented!
I always love discovering your new creations.
It's so interesting to see what forms the shapes under the skin! The muscle & fur is so delicately & masterfully rendered. This rocks!
Wow, I am really impressed with your sculpting skills! You are extremely talented!
I'm somewhat squeamish, but this is not disturbing at all. I don't think you need a label.  Impressive work!!!

Thank you all so much!!  Grin

I wasn't sure what I was looking at when I clicked on the thumbnail. I thought it was a professional figure someone had bought! It is just gorgeous and I really haven't seen much in terms of animal muscle, well, anything!

Awe thank you! I'm hoping to do a few more in this style, its a great learning tool - plus they're fun to make!

I think a few of these have made it onto my Craftster in the past, but its nice to have them all in one place!

These were all painted primarily with acrylics, and some have a bit of India Ink, watercolours and coloured pencils thrown in.


Luna Moth


Sunset Moth


Blue Morpho


Atlas Moth. This one was a volunteer piece for my University's publication journal.


Some recently discovered moth in the Leptometa genus


 Chrysopsyche mirifica


Swallowtail Butterfly


And a fantasy Valentine's Day-themed moth of sorts

Sorry if seeing illustrated/sculpted musculature freaks you out - let me know if this needs to be tagged as mature!

Anywhoodle, latest sculpture!
I'm a total nerd, and my passion lies in the sciences, specifically biology. I actually teach in the labs at my university, Human Anatomy and Physiology course, so naturally my passion is fueled.




My favorite side  Cheesy



This was made with Sculpey over a wire armature, and painted with acrylics.

Wow, I am nearly speechless.  My fave is Kitty due to the subject matter, but the paintings on feathers are truly wonderful.  I also love how you have basically developed this talent on your own.
Um, the bio says you are 21.  Is that a typo or does that really mean we get to look at your awesome stuff for, like, the next 80 years?
Congrats on being featured.... oy, do you deserve it!

Thank you for such a sweet comment!
And indeed, I only turn 22 on the 8th of this month so I'm still very green!  Cheesy

I love her!  Okay, so I asked a similar question on one of your other posts about the paint, but now that I know you use acrylics, I'm wondering if you use artist acrylics, or the craft ones.  Do you use iridescent paint, the iridescent acrylic medium, or those powders that they sell in the clay isle?  Sorry for all the Q's, I just really enjoy working with clay (at a much more remedial level than you!) and I love how your color always looks.  Thanks again!

I love the questions!
I've gathered a few "special effect" types of paint, mostly by the brand Golden (I think?), so they're actual liquid paint with iridescence. But I'll let you in on a little secret... dig into your nail polish stash, if you have one. I have a decent amount of neat nail polishes at actually work wonders when they are dry-brushed onto the clay. Occasionally I use chalk pastels to give soft amounts of colours here and there, but I'm still trying to get the hang of that method.

And I forgot to answer your other question in the other post! So far I haven't used coloured clay in that manner (the flexible clay I have is coloured, but I always paint over it), I always paint the clay afterwards. Cheesy

She's beautiful!  Do you do all the color/painting after she's done, or do you ever use colored clay?  Also, I was wondering if you use regular craft paint, or do you have a special paint that you use.  Whatever you use it looks great!  Thanks in advance.  Smiley

Since I'm primarily a fine artist, I have a decent stock of high-quality paint so rather than go buy cheaper craft paint, I use what I have (brands like Golden, Grumbacher, some Liquitex). Smiley
