I never liked paper beads, because the ones I made in school were always so flimsy and ugly Lips sealed lol. But yours are so nice, they have changed how I think of paper beads. I never would have thought that paper beads could be pretty.

Absolutely stunning -- I do hope you're more than "somewhat satisfied" with this piece!  The precision and detail are magnificent, especially considering the size...then I had a look at your deviantart page and saw your "3rd Unicorn" which is half the size of this one: four-and-a-half inches tall and just as complete.  The rest of your work is equally impressive.  Thanks so much for sharing your work with us.



Aw, thanks!  Cheesy

When I work on my sculptures, I spend so much time on them.  I get to a point where I have to finish them, so that I can work on another sculpture. But I see so many flaws, and know that, I don't know enough about anatomy to fix them, which is why I am always so disappointed. I suppose though, my disappointment is what keeps me going, so that I can take what I have learned, and hopefully make my next sculpture will be better than the last.

The 3rd unicorn really isn't that small compared to this one, they are about the same scale, it's just that this one is standing on its back legs, plus the horn adds a bit to the height as well  Tongue.

I am so glad I browsed through the pages here and saw this.

Absolutely fantastic.  I love all the attention to detail.  Do you do this for a living?


Thanks! 

Cheesy I wish. But no, would love to do this for a living, but I am not producing sculptures fast enough, or making enough money from selling them, to be making living off of them.

 Shocked Wow, that mountain broach looks great, what a neat effect!




 Huh I can't seem to find the motivation I need, to finish my projects. I have finally picked this one up again, and I am slowly making progress on it. (It's the same one I posted on page 5, back in July)

The eye is not quite finished, and I haven't painted the right eye yet. This is my first time, painting one of my unicorns white (all my others were gray), and I find it rather boring. I added hair texture to it, hoping that it would add a bit more visual interest, but I still find it boring Lips sealed. The next one will definitely, NOT be white, lol.   Grin

Nougatgee asked to see the unicorn in my avatar, so here he is









He is sculpted from Super Sculpey, Super Sculpey Firm, and epoxy, over foil and wire. Painted with acrylic paint. His mane and beard are made from fox fur, and the hair on his hooves and tail, is Tibetan lamb wool. Hes about 8 in tall from hoof to the tip of  the horn. Modeled after an Arabian horse, his coat is fleabitten gray.

I dont keep track of how long it takes to finish a sculpture, but it takes weeks and many hours of work. Basically I just keep working on them, until I am somewhat satisfied with how they look.

fabulous!!!  she's the unicorn in your avatar isn't she?

Nope! Tongue

I know that its hard to tell from the photos, but these two are actually very different. The one in my avatar, is one I finished last year.

Still needs more paint and hair. I could probably finish her today if I really wanted to  Undecided , it wouldn't take that long either, but I probably won't Roll Eyes.
