Finally Finnished Frank by kovah Finally Finnished Frank by kovah
He's finnished finally, apart from slight things that aren't really noticeable i need to put something on his eyes to make them shiney and his wings need permenantly attaching.


His body is made completely out of clay, each scale was individually placed then coloured with some red iron oxide. His wings are fabricated out of a wire armature and three layers of material that were melted slightly with a heat gun then some paint and fabric dye to darken them.

THIS IMAGE IS HUGE !!!

because i havent resized it, if/when i do i will repost it.

Thanks

He is about a foot and half tall i think, i dunno he is sat in my mums lounge atm so i cant check lol.

And yeah me and my friends were sat for hours rolling tiny balls of clay then squishing them onto him. Some of them fell off during the baking but i think it adds to the effect.

kovah Featured By Owner May 22, 2006  Professional Digital Artist
it is, thes been fired twice. Once to harden the clay then i put the colour on him then he was fired to a higher temperature to set the colour on him and make the clay even stronger. :)
