Journey Through Unknown Lands

Finally finished Hedwig, the Sower of Stars. She resides in my home like a grumpy lady. There will be some better pics in the future, but setting up a space for taking pictures, with background and all, always takes time. I am living in a rather small space. If you want to know more about the progress of Hedwig and Hugo, there is a post over on my blog.

The black bat is nearly done, only a few details to work on, some staining and a little bag like Hugos. And a name… I have some ideas but I will have to test them, which one suits her best…

omg i love that bat so much
Haha, glad you like the derpy little guy!

Snowdrop had a lot of work to do today. But Hugo helped and everything was finished in time. Happy Easter!

The black rabbit…

aprilfoolromance asked: Your work is so lovely!!

Thank you so much! 

rawfrog asked: Hey girl I LOVE your work !! Keep it up ! What do you use for the faces ? What type of plaster or clay ? Brand name ?

Thank you! I use Magic Sculpt for most of my faces since you don’t need to bake it. It is a two part epoxy clay and it is rather popular as far as I know. But I made some of my earlier faces with cheap air drying clay. The most important thing is to feel comfortable with the medium you are working in!

A work in progress… the bunny got some more fur because I wanted to try sculpting fur a bit… it took ages but it was fun.
Another one of Snowdrop… all buttoned up and not yet bleeding. I am still astonished at how well those hand sewn buttonholes work…
I just recently finished editing the pics I took of Snowdrop, Death and Hugo, so I will be posting these over the next few days. This is one of my favourite pics. I still like the idea of red threads as blood… poor Snowdrop…
Working on this little rabbit trophy. I wanted to try something less time consuming than the dolls, but still in the same style. I will try to finish this little one soon, but I am currently writing a paper, and then there are two other papers that need to be written… my time management is a mess…
This is the black bats derpy face. 
I will start posting a lot more through (my) day, because I used to keep my Tumblr posts for late and then forgot posting and thats how this Tumblr blog just became deserted… 
A size comparison. This black bat turned out bigger than Hugo, mostly by accident. The black fur is really annoying to work with and I can’t wait to be done with the whole thing and get t sculpting again. I really miss sculpting…

Some sketches from today… I will work some of these into bigger sketches/drawings some time this week… it feels good to sketch…

"Hugo, the Bringer of Spring"Even before the last snow melts, Hugos work begins. He soars through the sky, dipped in moonlight, sprinkling the earth with seeds and dewdrops from his pouch. Even though one might not think of him as the sensitive type, given his grim exterior and sometimes grumpy behavior, he enjoys caring for the fragile seeds and plants and newly blossomed flowers.
