Leliel a  swamps treasure by mangakasan Leliel a  swamps treasure by mangakasan
Leliel is a OOAK sculpt which measures about 4 inch from base to horn, he was 100% handmade (no molds were used) with polymer clay over a wired armature frame, his eyes are cast from clear resin and are hand painted, he was painted with acrylics,mica powders and pastels with many layers of varnish, his hooves and horn glow blue in the dark.
This is a piece which i started early Januari this year, he was supposed to be a remake of an older sculpt i did of (foal) Engel, but because of lack of time he sat half sculpted on my desk for almost a whole year, but last month i picked him up again and was wondering what i would do to him as much time passed and i thought he looked kind of boring and i didn't like certain bits anymore, but i diddnt want to trow him away either so i just thought...heck! i am just gonna continue and see what happens....well this is what happened then....

Commissions are closed until somewhere next year.

Mind if I ask how you got that paint effect done? Like, it looks almost as if the paint is smoothly blurred into the next colour, or like it was powdered on.... how did you create that effect?

Also, I can't even begin to imagine being able to make something as beautiful and perfect as this. I love it with each bit of my heart <3 positively astounding work~!!!

you can get the smooth effect in different ways like some use airbrush to get it to look that way, but i just start by put a primer coat on first, then i block in the base colors with acrylic paint and then layer after layer a pastel color/mica powder which i dust on, and finally i used the ticking technique (you take a very thin brush and paint small hairs individually), i did that to make a realistic transfer from the dark colors to the white. i hope this answered your question a bit XD

Wow so many fun little details on this one; I especially love the little splash on the base. Are the droplets made from resin?

:iconmangakasan:
mangakasan Featured By Owner Dec 8, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
No i used 3D lacquer for the droplets and splash (i could have used resin but it would take to long to dry XD
