Gryphon Fledgeling Art Doll by xiShadowWolfx Gryphon Fledgeling Art Doll by xiShadowWolfx
▀▄▀▄▀▄▀▄▀▄▀▄▀▄▀▄▀▄▀▄▀▄▀▄▀▄▀▄▀▄▀▄▀▄▀

Sorry for the long silence, Ive been busy with college and haven't really been on for the last few months.
However, I have been busy in that time and made this wee beastie. :)

For my final 3D project, I wanted to try something I'd never really done before. I had found a tutorial here on deviantart on how to make art dolls, and decided to give it a go. Truthfully, It was a pain in the ass. :D Getting the pattern and wings right, not to mention balance and weight issues, It was pretty much trial and error through the whole process. :dead: I did eventually manage to get it right, and I am very pleased with the results.

It will be shown at my college's art exhibition tomorrow night along with some of my other work. I'm quite nervous about it ^^;


I'd like to thank Magweno for her lovely tutorial. It was very helpful with getting the pattern/wadding right. And is thanks to her I made my first art doll. :aww: Please go have a look at her work, It is really amazing!

---
All hand made. The head and feet were made with super sculpey. The body is made with a wire armature, padded and soft with faux fur, making it fully poseable. The eyes are hand-painted glass cabochons. The wings are a soft fleece, and the neck and tail are adorned with rooster feathers.

This is adorable! I would never believe it was your first doll! All that work with the wings paid off, the finished wings are great and it has a really expressive face.

I love love love the coloration!  It is so adorable and the wings look amazing.  It has beautiful proportions and cute expressive face and the addition of th feathers, especially around the neck, was the perfect touch.  I love it! :love:

Definitely one of the better first tries I've seen! Keep up the good work!
I completely understand about college too - I just finished my first year, which was AMAZING, but I had no time for my own projects, so I am very excited for summer!
