my boyfriend works for an animation company based here in massachusetts and writes about superheroes
thus, scratch was born....he is rooster made out of sculpey III clay with a taste for moonshine. his character is supposed to be a sort of tired, dejected, past his prime chicken. his back side is kinda neat but i dont have a camera right now so no butt shots. yeah, so...tell me what you think! comments are really appreciated!

without further ado, the total body...


a different angle...


and a face only a mother could love...

LOLOL... love the legs stance, and the way-too-many-last-night eyes, and the feathers look wondrously bedraggled!! 

Are you ever tempted to do something in plasticine clay, and actually animate it?

Oh, I thought plasticine was what most animation studios use, so I'd assumed your BF brought it home or something.  From what I understand, the various brands of plasticine are just a really high grade of kid-type modeling clay (have wax in them so it can't be baked to harden like polymer clay can).  Plasticine feels sort of like working with raw polymer clay, but may hold up better in the heat of animation lights or be heavier, etc.  The most famous brand in the US is Plastalina by VanAken, so you might want to look around their site:
http://www.vanaken.com

Hmmmm... now I'm a bit confused... maybe VanAken makes two lines of plasticine... a higher quality one called Plastalina:
http://www.vanaken.com/plastalina.html
...and a lesser quality? one called Claytoons, marketed for kids as regular "modeling clay":
http://www.vanaken.com/claytoon.html
Otherwise, I don't know what the difference between those two is.   Would you mind asking your BF if he knows the difference?  I'd like to say that at my site where I discuss other clays.


(VanAken has recently started making a polymer clay too, but it's kind of a side line for them ... it's called Kato Polyclay.)

He's great!  We used to keep chickens when I was little, they're so fun, and they do tend to the drink when they get older.
Is that a Lance Armstrong band around his ankle? That cracked me up.
