Absolutely stunning. The pose, the proportions, even the hair looks so real. Not to forget the amazing colors. Most people couldn't even paint this, let alone do this as a sculpture ...

They are so lovely - my fav colours! Could you please tell me, where did you get this fantastic coral? I can't seem to find them...

Aw, thank you! I found the coral at an aqaurium
store. It is fake which is much easier to find
in my opinion.

I would miss them too. Do you paint over the white polymer clay or do you mix colors? I notice that your skin on some pieces almost seems translucent over veining. The effect is incredible!

I use a clay mix. The color you see is the actual color of the clay. I love the translucent effect. ;)

I would comment on how totally awsome this really is, but I think everyone else did that for you already :D Isn't is the way, of being an artist, that you have to give up your stuff sometimes? I choose not to sell my stuff...mainly because I am not good enough, but because I get so attached to my stuff that it is hard to part with. But if I start out from the very begining knowing I am making this for someone else, it isn't as hard to give up. Like my Eicca oil painting. I planned on giving it to him from the start but it came out so well, I have decided to do another painting for myself :) Your stuff is amazing and I wish I could do sculptures but my hands were not made for that :)

Yes, sometimes it is very hard to let go of certain pieces. This is one of them. It has a real presence that I will miss. But it is just part of the process for me. I have to release them in order to be able to move on to the next thing. I do sometimes envy 2D artists because they can make prints and always keep their art with them.
