Basil The african grey by mangakasan Basil The african grey by mangakasan

Basil is an OOAK sculpture commissioned by :iconruby-dreams: She asked me to create her pet parrot Basil and he was loads of fun to do, also because it's the first bird/feathered creature i've sculpted so lots of challenges there, also a piece i created with air dry clay in majority over polymer clay (just the head and neck/chest is done in polymer clay).
Sculpted over a wire frame with airdry and polymer clays, has hand cast/painted eyes and was painted with acrylics and pastels.
:star:I will open sculpture commissions again next month (only 2 slots!) Reservings spots for them are now open! >mangakasan.deviantart.com/jour…
:star: digital and traditional art commissions are open right now aswell (2 slots available!)>mangakasan.deviantart.com/jour…

A wonderfully imaginative and well planned piece of sculpture, with a exceptional amount of care applied to accuracy, from the pose of the parrot to the smaller details, such as the colouration and especially the tag around the leg.

As a bird owner myself, I absolutely love this piece. Well done for a first avian sculpt!

Wow, this is awesome!! :love:

The only way I can tell is that it's a sculpture is because I noticed that the parrot has the same pose, just different angles. XD
