The Littlest Pangolin - Sculpture


31 January 2014 at 23:23:29 MST

When I asked for suggestions a very short while back, I was instantly inspired by *shepaintswithblood's (dA) suggestion of a pangolin! I knew I had to give one a shot, such wonderful little creatures.

That being said, I'd totally dig hearing suggestions in regards to sculptures! Keep in mind that these are not requests, but simply suggestions for subjects (so no personal characters, etc). And if your suggestion does tickle my fancy and I sculpt it up, I'll mention ya in the submission description. C:

Took awhile to decide on a pose, so I drew up a couple sketches and went with this one. I may add to it later, possibly pose a butterfly or a smaller pangolin reaching for a butterfly on the tail.

I originally was not going to go with wings, but it was very hard to balance this little guy on his back, so wings it would be. Naturally went with moth wings, choosing a Luna Moth for the shape and pattern (although not colouration).

I love the little feeties <3<3

Enjoy folks!

        I should clarify, I have an inner ear disease which causes memory loss, so I wrote myself a sticky note but it also helps me if the person I'm buying from reminds me. Sorry if that's inconvenient.
