Pencil sketch of a cat: Chibi!

This is the second cat I draw, belonging to a japanese friend of mine. Does the cat look Japanese as well? πŸ˜€ He’s named Chibi, and it’s actually quite big despite the name (meaning “small” in Japanese). 15x18cm on Canson XL, HB, 2B and 8B pencils.

Clay Dolphin – (half)Failed!

Ok, this is my second attempt at using Super Sculpey, after making a bunch of slimesΒ only with it (and Figaro the cat from Pinocchio, using its firmer version). 10 days of work ended up to a quite unsatisfying result. I was not able to smooth out the dolphin itself, which remained quite bumpy. As for the “waves” below it, I couldn’t get rid of the jagginess caused by the many (uneven?) layers of thin clay I applied. Definitely need to revise the method… and avoid making mistakes stand out more with enamel, next time!!
Here is before, then comes after baking and painting (was supposed to be a simple ornament, nothing fancy, but geez, it sucks! :D)
