Chubby Creature Figure
One of my favorite things to create with clay; is figurines. I love drawing
chubby creatures and I love making them out of clay. I think part of this is due to my love of action figures as a kid. Holding little characters and having battles with them was one of my favorite hobbies as a young boy. This little ceramic figure is a spin off of some of my sketch ideas. I did just post another green tailed figure for you to see.
This red and black figure was created with air dry clay, and painted with acrylic paints and black markers. I tried a few different designs on him before ending with this pattern. It does have a clear gloss coat to give him a little luster. The guy is about 3-4 inches long, and 2-3 inches tall. The figure was build piece by piece and then slipped and scored into place.
If you enjoy my figure, you should make sure to see my other ceramic projects. If you are interested in purchasing any of my work (including my ceramic guys), make sure to visit my etsy shop.
