I made this for the "Loyal Mutant Swap" for Ludi

The head and eyes in the wings are made of polymer clay. The structure is wire and clay "bones" with some stuffing. The mutant is suppoed to be cats and dinosaurs and animal skulls/skeletons  (the skull is a sabertooth so qualifies for all three... sort of) mushrooms (there are tiny mushrooms growing out of cracks in the skull) insects (the eyes are insect-inspired) Birds and frogs (the body is half swan half frog) and she likes old school horror movies and H.P. Lovecraft. I tried interpretting old-school horror by puting the human eyes in the wings as well as integrating some of her personal taste by making the wings pieces of fabric that seem sort of period style and her favorite colors. the entire structure is supposed to be semi-lovecraft-inspired.

Thanks for looking!

I like it a whole bunch, especially the head.  The creepy cracks with mushrooms growing out of them, and the eyes and teeth are well detailed.  The articulated understructure is especially amazing because you can't see it, but you can feel it moving under the feather-scales.  I plan to hang this in my craft room.  Smiley

I'm super impressed by your construction! The skull is amazing in its detail.

Anyone have a couple extra felting needles? I'll trade for them!
