So all that being said, the other day when I woke up I just knew that I had to do something crafty for the day (do you ever get those feelings randomly?), so I had my parents take me to Hobby Lobby and I grabbed some polymer clay. I knew that I wanted to (attempt) to make an art doll, as I have been super inspired by Art Dolls Only lately. Anyways, I started sculpting when I got home and this is what I have come up with:
I think that he is a goblin-like fantasy creature. I really love how his head has turned out, but now I have no idea what to do for his body! I know it is either going to be clay or fabric (duh
). I am either going to sculpt his body like Dobby the house-elf from Harry Potter or making the body similar to this doll's body: http://www.flickr.com/photos/whymsicallotus/580522851/in/set-72157600417995481/
. Also, I think he is going to be a light greenish colour.
My goblin guy also inspired another character and last night when I was super exhausted (and all ideas seem like a good idea). I decided to attempt to sculpt the new character, I am not sure if I am happy with how he came out yet. I want him to be kinda old looking/ grumpy. His body is going to be made out of fun fur. He also has horns, but I have yet to properly attach them.
(sorry it is hard to see his detail/ don't mind the shake and bake box
I think also that I want to make a whole 'series' of my fantastical characters, also when exhausted, I was thinking of all the different roles they could fulfill, the wise-man, the damsel in distress, the trickster, the shy one, the brute and whatnot.
Anyways, off to crafting!
