This one was a
birthday gift for my buddy Aidan www.aidanrae.com
. It's made of Sculpey polymer clay over an armature of wadded aluminum foil and toothpicks, and painted with acrylics.
I still haven't got the hang of realistic animal painting yet but I like the sculpt, with its ornery expression. I was aiming for "squinty stink-eye." Also, tiny feets.
Edit 12/19/13: I'M SO HONORED! Thank you so very much for the DailyDeviation feature. All the comments are deeply appreciated and I don't want to inflate the count with a ton of identical "thank you" notes but THANK YOU! You all totally made my day.
