The finished totem for Spretz! The whole process and ritual for this was an absolute joy for me, and I'm pretty pleased with the results. I hope it stands as an icon of positivity and love for its owner.
~3 inches, Super Sculpey and acrylics

The sculpting is wonderful as usual, but what really made this pop is the expert stone texturing going on. This is incredible. This is pure totem material. I absolutely adore this.

What I'd like to do is get a precious stone of some kind together when I do, some day, commission you.
on 30 January 2014 at 01:18:19 MST
Gawrsh, thank you! I was really hoping I could pull off the stone texture, I just kind of stared at a bunch of pictures and went "UHH, THIS?" and hoped for the best. Then again, I think that's what I do with everything. Are you talkin' about including a precious stone in the totem itself, because if so that would be SO COOL YES.
on 30 January 2014 at 19:13:18 MST
Yeah. Ideally I'd get my hands on a piece of amber.

Extra fluffy is extra fun to sculpt :3

That marble texture is AWESOME.
What exactly is the ritual?
on 30 January 2014 at 08:42:28 MST
Thank you! Spretz put something together for me involving meditation, reading some verses important to him, and listening to specific classical pieces while focusing on specific emotions. It was really lovely, I hope I get to do more things like this in the future!
on 30 January 2014 at 07:30:48 MST
Wow! Like everyone else, I absolutely love then painting on this one! It really does look like stone, lovely job!

awwww dang those stone textures are gorgeous! I love how nice and deeply carved those markings look, they're positively beautiful.
on 30 January 2014 at 19:28:19 MST
lots of progressive layers of shading an highlights went into ensuring those dumb spirals came out crisp hehe! Thank you!
on 30 January 2014 at 21:03:48 MST
Man, I love your totems so much. I'll definitely have to get one from you some day. I feel like Blythe would really fit the whole nature of these sculptures.

I still can't get over how good this looks. If I get a totem, I am so going with this paint job.

I really hope it makes more people consider getting a totem, they're so enjoyable and special to do, particularly for special friends <333
