It's rare for me to do anything realistic, but I really wanted to make them special. I also like to challenge myself now and then so I don't get lazy about anatomy. It was a really good exercise, though it definitely solidified my desire to stick with cute stuff. While I CAN make more realistic critters, I don't enjoy it anywhere near as much as making cute stuff.
I get the feeling every once in a while that some people think I'm a one trick pony. So I thought it'd be cool to show just what I am capable of making, but simply CHOOSE not to.
I actually did enjoy making these two because they were a special project. After I do unique projects like this I don't really want to do them again. They're interesting the one time, not so much after that
I actually took progression shots [link] Someone suggested I do that on one of my sculptures so I thought it'd be fun to show how I made these guys. I'll do another for a dragon at some point
I WILL NOT BE MAKING ANYMORE REALISTIC HORSES.
Unless you want to throw ridiculous amounts of money at me, of course.

Please visit my FAQ page [link] before asking questions about techniques and materials. Just about every question I get is covered there. Iím not trying to be rude, I just get tired of answering the same questions over and over
Please do more realistic animals!!! I love them
I hope someone throws ridiculous amounts of money at you regardless
Next time I'm in town I wanna come see all the stuff you've been working on and play with your silly ferret critters!
It's so cool that you have such a huge fan base! Hope your wrist continues to improve
By the way, Becca I was also into video game making and movie production but lost interest near graduation. I made it and got my diploma but never worked in the industry, unfortunately... but instead decided to start my own business with clay AND I have taken the route of a graphic artist. When I read your little blurb on ETSY I was shocked at how similar we were, that is probably why I find you such an inspiration!
im super jealous! You're reaaally talented with your clay
The paint job on the dappled grey is amazing!!!
The little one is my favorite . you got the legs just right!
