I feel kinda stupid, posting my amateur attempts at making clay figures, but I figured I'd share because I barely ever post on craftster. I recently got an amazing camera, so, there's no reason not to take pictures now! I was browsing DeviantArt and found a girl who makes these AMAZING clay dragons. When she lists them in her Etsy, they are all gone in MINUTES, no joke. So. I got a hankering to start making my own clay things. I tried making dragons like hers, failed epicly, then I noticed she had a tutorial on youtube. The only thing I really took from that was making tinfoil armatures. I also didn't want to make dragons, because (1) I suck at making wings, as you'll see and (2) I felt like I'd be stealing her thing, even though I made a completely different style than hers. Plus, for some reason I really wanted to make Cthulhu's, and, well, I'd like to continue making those and hopefully selling them in my own Etsy shop because I enjoy making them and in my opinion, they turn out better. (Don't get me wrong, I'm not trying to advertise... If they ever do end up in my Etsy, it'll be quite a while because I don't have the money to buy shipping supplies anyways.) Anyways, sorry for the long-winded explanation, but I don't like to just drop a bunch of pictures and not say anything about them. Here you go: (Sorry for the large photos)
My first Cthulhu. Ain't he cute?
This is one of my first dragons. Yeah, I don't like him either.
Another first one. Meh.
Another adorable Cthulhu!
I decided to jump on the tentacle bandwagon, since I'm already making Cthulhus.
Creepy evil Cthulhu holding a "soul".
Bronze Cthulhu pendant.
I spent a lot of time on this Griffins feathers, but his head still really bothers me...
Dragon. His little spike broke off on this side...
I made the mistake of trying to paint his wings white...
Crappy. Pony. Do not like the pony.
Anyways. What do you think for a beginner? C&C welcome!
