I think that you're selling yourself short, these are both wonderful renditions of the NBC characters!  I like Sally better out of the pair, but then, she's the more visually-interesting and colorful character design to begin with.

Wonderful rendition of an equine pose that very few artists ever tackle in three dimensions, let alone two!  Excellent anatomy and paintwork too.

I also appreciate your dedication to completing a project over such a long span of time.  Myself, if I don't finish a model within days of starting it, it never gets done.
3  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / Re: Ankylosaurus with Tripawaurus in the background on: May 23, 2015 07:51:32 AM
Excellent rendition of an Ankylosaurus!  You did a nice job on the pose/anatomy and the detailing of the scales and bumpy back plates.  Lovely, earth-toned paint work too!

Alas, I've had several of my toys and sculptures mutilated over the years by the predations of giant felines like Tripawaurus--no amount of protective spikes, plates, etc. deter such creatures, indeed, those are often the first things to get chewed off by their kitty teeth.

On a related note, if you happen to have a Dollar Tree store near you, they have these cool little plastic glow-in-the-dark skeleton models, including Ankylosaurus (and you get two different dinos in each pack, which is a pretty sweet deal for a buck).  Even if you don't want them as-is, I imagine they'd make good armatures for a dinosaur sculpture:

Awesome selection of animal hoods--they all look adorable, but the black bear is my favorite.  Great work!
5  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Re: "Curiouser and Curiouser" Hoopla on: May 21, 2015 06:45:16 AM
I agree that your work here is indistinguishable from a pen-and-ink drawing; marvelously done!

Great job, and the first time I've seen a Game of Thrones themed Easter Egg to boot!

Nobody likes applying scales individually--I've heard plenty of horror stories from sculptors that make dragons on a regular basis (I can recall that "one scale at a time" is the mantra one of them advised repeating to help you keep your sanity during the tedium).  Applying scales in rows is quicker (strips with jagged edges, like the top of a picked fence), but, given the tapered spherical shape of an egg, that methodology probably wouldn't look as nice as these single scales do.
7  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Mother's Day / Re: Mother's Day cards x2 on: May 21, 2015 06:34:15 AM
Beautiful sakura-themed cards; I'm sure both of your special ladies were delighted with them!
8  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Re: Princess Peach Doll on: May 21, 2015 06:29:40 AM
Great job!  I'm also curious how you got the hair to stay in that shape (glue or styling products?)

Yup, I just checked my home page and everything is back the way it should be; thank you for the prompt fix!

Cute little blue bear!  I like the peppermint-candy like design you gave to the cheek highlights.
