Little Hedgehog Sculpture by HylianJean Little Hedgehog Sculpture by HylianJean
This one was a Christmas 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.

I've actually been looking for someone to commission for a sculpture of my little hedgehog that recently died. Think you'd be interested in trying?

My condolences on your loss :(
I would be interested, though my project list is pretty backlogged right now and I'm not sure I could actually take on a new hedgie sculpture for a few months. Is it something you're willing to wait for?

I would be happy to be patient. I have many images of her, if you'd be willing to take on the task for me when you do have time.
