Posable Sea Serpent Detail by MaryBunnie Posable Sea Serpent Detail by MaryBunnie
Posable sea serpant I have been working on for a while now.
He's my first posable, I've been wanting to make one for a while so he's my practice :)

His head, fins, and tail have been hand sculpted from polymer clay. Then he was sewn, stuffed, painted and accented.
He has little pieces of blue glass embedded in his tail.
Fur is hand colored by me also :)

He is about 1 1/2 feet long.
Eye Detail: WIP:

--------------------
Commissions:~~~
I decided to start taking commissions for things like this besides my regular sculptures :)
Currently working on- poseable leopard serpant dragon for :iconkumoriyori:

He looks so silky soft... I'm partway through making my own dragony-serpent... Just have to wait for the oven to be fixed so that I can bake him! :D

I KNOW!!! Not only can I not make pizza, but I can't carry on with my dragony-serpent. However, it is sort of good because it's given me time in which I have nothing to do with it but reinforce the armature, so hopefully it will end up stronger. And the bubbly details on his little flipper-claws! So cute :)

Let me know when your oven is fixed! Reinforcing is always a great idea, it makes sure that your critter will not break in the future :)
I'm glad you like his claws! I love claws on creatures, so that was my favorite part to make and detail :D

My oven is fixed now, so dolls and pizza for me, yay :) Currently have finished the armature and am getting the clay onto it. My fimo is really crumbly unless I play with it for ages with warm hands, and my dragon is pretty big so it's taking a while. Is that normal?
Yeah, I'm thinking of doing a sea-lion next, so his flippers will have claws :D

Hiya!! Sorry it took so long to get back :(
I used spraypaint and stencils to keep the blue in a controlled area :) you need to do multiple thin coats and brush them or the fur will get crusty! It is quite possible to dye faux fur :) you can also get fabric spraypaint at the craft story Michaels! it works on faux fur :)

Great! If it helps I usually wait until a 40% coupon from Michaels shows up in the newspaper and use it to get materials like that, because it is hard for us artists to have lots of spare money right? :lol:

He is absolutely stunning, your sculpting is just incredible! He looks sooo fluffy too :aww: I really love how the eyes stand out so much, they go so well with the other colours. The smooth claws are really a lovely touch... Yeah I would have to say his fins are my favourite part, I think it's the little line of dimples that just gets me, so realistic and beautiful, you've really inspired me to try harder with my dolls.
:hug: It looks incredible, I hope you get masses and masses of commissions! :aww:

so this is a major compliment to me!!!! ^-^
I usually sculpt simple cute things but I missed making detailed sculptures so I really went all out on him! :D I think the fins are my favorite part too! ^-^ They took longer than his head :XD: I'm glad I could inspire you because you definately inspired me!!!!! :hug:
Hehehe thank you!!! :love: I can only hope so too because I would love so much to have the chance to make lots of unique creatures!!! :icondragonwant:

I worked really hard so that he would turn out well and he was a lot of hard work but I am so happy! He is sitting next to Mizu right now in a little bed I made for them on my shelf! ^-^ I should take pictures of them together :)
I will always love your eyes the best! But I am very happy you like mine too !!!!!! :hug:

Awww TESSA!!!!! I'm literally all red!
^3^ ~ <3
I worked so hard on him and I can tell you even with that I will still work TWICE as hard or MORE on your leopard dragon! I love sculpting of every kind, be it chibi or realistic :D I just love everything about doing it!
I used spraypaint from my huge spraypaint collection! because I am weird enough to have a spraypaint collection!
I'm really happy that you like him! :love: he was a lot of work but I learned many things and am much more confident now! :3 I already have another plush to post ;)

I started your leopard dragons wire frame to experiment :D I hope you don't mind! ^-^
Awwwww Tessa thank you!!! You don't have to do that! :heart: =3
Oh look, I'm still red! :XD: :glomp: you never stop making me grin! :D

I felt the same way for the LONGEST time!!!! Then my friend showed me this awesome guide!!!!: [link] it helped me so much, I'm bad at sewing so I was afraid to start an art doll but it really helps :) :XD:
I'd gladly note you with things I would suggest for you depending on what kind of creature you wanted to make! Because I've noticed different forms and animals require different balances and wires and foil in different places and stuff! I'm still learning but of course I'd love to help if I can :)

WHooo!!! I had the same idea! I already started making faces! I got hooked to the poseable idea after the big guy got finished! They would be perfect to give as gifts too, who doesn't want an adorable little furry thing? Not sure if mine will be cute or scary yet, or both, since I LOVE both ;) I can tell you do too!!!! :heart:
Reply
:iconkatgore:
KatGore Featured By Owner May 2, 2011
oh yes I do!
I have a few ideas here and there but not a face image in my mind yet.
I'll have to wait though to buy all the supplies :/
I dont have all that fancy wires.I just get the wires in the flower section and have used that for some pieces :/
Im not that grreat at sewing either,so im pretty concerned about it...

MaryBunnie Featured By Owner May 2, 2011  Professional Traditional Artist
I just start playing with the clay and usually something starts to emerge, it really helps when I have artist block!
Those wires work really well! In the floral section at Michaels? I'm not sure if you have one of those :) that's where I get my wire too!
I'm horrible at sewing, I think if I can do it anyone can. Sewing has always felt different from other arts, like its a little more technical and less free or something.. If definately takes longer than any other part of the poseable for me but you really get the hang of it! I'm going to look up examples for patterns for simple bodies I'll let you know if I find anything good! :D
