Well here it is, my last sculpture entry for the Okami contest. I didnt sleep at all haha. I was on auto-pilot all night working into the wee morning
. Well lets start with measurements:
Amaterasu: 5 inches long
Sakuya: 6 ½ inches tall
Bloomed Sapling: 18 inches tall, 18.5 inches wide, 12 inches deep
Amaterasu was a generic wolf I found in my box-o-toys that I modified a bit with Super Sculpey. Saved me some time from sculpting ^_^. The reflector is made with Super Sculpey and the fire was made with hot glue.
Sakuya was scratch built with Super Sculpey with aluminum foil armature The leaves in her hair and the cloud sash are made from foam sheet.
The sapling was made with celluclay (instant paper mache) also with aluminum foil armature. The blossoms are made from foam sheets.
Everything was hand painted. I tried to get the sumi-e style to translate to the sculptures as best as I could. I started this project almost right after I finished my Amaterasu Warrior figure [link]
and it took me about 2 days to finish it. I had a series of these sculpture projects in mind awhile back and this contest kind of pushed me to at least do one. I dont think I have it in me to rush the other projects I had in mind before the deadline. Ill make those later when Im ready to tackle them but for now, I hope you enjoy this one. Thanks for looking! Have a great day and GOODNIGHT! LOL! ^_^
