OOAK Astarte guardian of water by mangakasan OOAK Astarte guardian of water by mangakasan
:star: Facebook: www.facebook.com/JenWArts?ref=… :star: Tumblr: www.tumblr.com/blog/mangakasan…

Astarte was a commission for :iconwhererosesgrowwild: I was so trilled when i got to see her sheet > she is such a beautiful character! So naturally i had a lot of fun creating her *btw Luz is such an awesome person to work with and so patient too*
Astarte is a one of a kind, no molds were taken so she wont be reproduced.
I created her with sculpey clay and apoxy sculpt over a wired frame, her eyes and orb are cast from resin (tho the orb looks a bit weird as it was terribly hard to cast something solid with an object inside *flower*) She was painted with acrylics/pearl-ex and pastels and i used tibetan lamb fur for her neck, she measures 5 inches from chest to bum.

As for sculpting commissions: i only have one more slot available for grabs for this year next time i open commissions will be januari/feb 2014, so if interested in taking the final slot please send me a note, prices and policy you can find here> mangakasan.deviantart.com/jour….

Character belongs to :iconwhererosesgrowwild:
Sculpted/painted by me

Oh my god, I have been pining after your WIP of this lovely Astarte and I was so disappointed because I couldn't find the finished piece. I kinda got a little giddy when I saw this thumb in my message center.
I love this critter's shape, so lovely and flowing. And the whiskers look awesome, gives such a whimsical, gravity-defying feel.
Beautiful work, you've inspired me to sculpt again. <3

Woh she comes soo amazging, Its really detailed and amazing work. Her  neck looks so fluffy and soft and I think that was great idea to make it this way! Hope you will add more photos of this amazing sculpture! Could I ask what material you used for whiskers? They looks little like branches, so natural!
