I am lucky to be married to an artsy man (he's a video game artist).

For Christmas and birthdays, etc, I usually enjoy making him crafts based on his artwork. We jokingly call these  "hubris gifts"  Tongue

This is what I made him for Christmas:


Based on this painting:


It took me days, but it was worth it--he loves it and is going to keep it on his desk at work Smiley

Wow this is so cool. My husband would drool over this, although he hasn't really had time to play his Death Knight.

Very, very nice!


(few questions  Grin:)
What size is it? ...perhaps about 5-6"?
What type and brand/line of clay did you use?
What kind of armature did you use?
Are the gold-ish colors actually gold-colored, and if so which colorant did you use? (or did you just paint over all the clay?)

Thanks for all the kind words! Smiley

ScrappySue--wow, that's so nice, I don't think I've ever inspired anyone before. I know what you mean though, I also feel like I need to get my bum off the computer  Wink

Diane B--thanks! I used Super Sculpey, with a foil armature, although there's also a tiny IKEA pencil stuffed in there for extra support to connect the head and torso (I fly by the seat of my pants when making stuff :p ). For the colors, I just used acrylic paints, including a metallic gold one. Oh and good eye, it's about 6" tall Smiley
