The current critter I am working on will have sculpted elements. A bit like a soft bodied armature doll, but more stuffed animal.
Here is one side while I was working on it.
And now all the pieces baked and the body in the background. Why yes the head is not attached, I’ll have an easier time sewing the horn pieces in place while it is not stuffed.
The tiny little pieces are claws.
Hello, I’m Kai. I’ve always wanted to support myself with my creative works, and this is the start of an experiment to see if I can do just that. This decision came from a very long year where my marriage came undone, suddenly lost family members, and illness stalked others. It all left me feeling that my life path could now go anywhere. So I sat down and really thought about what I would want to be doing, and then what I’d need to do to give myself the greatest chance for success. So now here I am.
Let me now speak a little bit about myself as a creative person. At a core level I like to take modern and fun, to me, subjects and bring them to traditional media. I really love the absurd in life and gravitate toward more fantastical subjects.
I really do love what I do. Making things with my hands brings me a whole lot of joy, and I hope that the things I make will speak to others as well. It is, however, work and I am always looking to learn something new, to better myself, and push my skills.
So here’s to the start of spring, and my new, creative life.
