Love elephants, love weird things, love moths.
Soooo....

COMBINE ALL THE THINGS!



Normally I give a name to my sculpture critters, but no name has come to me yet. This little dude is about 6" long, 5" high and 4" wide, and is made with Sculpey clay over a wire armature.

Originally I wanted to go for a sort of Dali-style elephant leg-wise, but realized as I was filling out his form with clay that I should have exaggerated those legs WAAAAY more. I decided to keep the legs on the thinner and longer side (comparing to a normal elephant) for a sort of whimsical look.
