Edit. Oh my, a Daily Deviation. I would never have thought in a million years. :wow:
Thankyou very much! I am humbled. :aww:
And thankyou all for the comments and faves. I truly appreciate it. <3


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.

From suggester: It's adorable and well executed and I think it's a beautiful art doll. I can't believe it's this artist's first one - it looks flawless! ( Suggested by pyro-helfier and Featured by Backsackandjack )
