Pogo is not one for the arachnophobes! I adore spiders, but most especially salticidae – jumping spiders, which Pogo here is based on.
Hazel is… well, I was going to say a bunnygoyle, but that just didn’t fit. He’s a sleek, agile hare and deserves to be recognized as such! Looks a bit like the jackrabbit we get visiting our front yard now and then.
TortGoyle. TortGoyle? Heh, wasn’t sure quite what to call her. She’s a tortoise, in any case. A lot of detail work went into her, and I’m quite happy with how she turned out!
Fern is a bit more like one of those agile tropical frogs than old Filbert is. She’s got long legs and widespread wings, and looks just about ready to take a wild leap! Seriously, I just love her feet.
Filbert is a lazy old froggie, but I think he’s darling just the same. It was raining here quite heavily a few days before I sculpted him, and every once in a while, a heavy rain here brings out a peculiar type of toad which sings all night long. So, having amphibians on the brain, I decided I needed to sculpt a froggoyle.
I thought I might actually be the first person to make an otter gargoyle, but Google proved me wrong!
I’ve had gargoyles on the brain lately!
I originally wanted to do this sculpture in all white. I love how those baby blue eyes turned out! (Blue polymer clay behind glass cabochons) This was the first time I tried sculpting individual scales. It took quite a while, but looked very nice.
This little one got all the attention (and ended up selling) at Phoenix Comicon. S’pose that means I should make more lovely black dragons! He also nearly didn’t make it.
This sculpted drake hatchling was crafted to resemble the exclusive I did for Phoenix Comicon 2012.
