This is a Lugia Sculpture, based on the legendary character from Pokemon, I was commissioned to make for someone. You can also find it on Tumblr [here]
The sculpture is completely handmade out of polymer clay with metal armature for added strength, and painted with acrylics, then coated in a high gloss sealant. The sculpture itself is about 4 inches tall and is standing on a removable decorative base with attached accent stones.
Lugia is one of my partner's favorite legendary Pokemon, not so much for fighting but for the design, so when I was commissioned to make this, we were thrilled. The client wanted a base that looks like the move Whirlpool, so that's the effect I was going for, the little rocks are just for extra texture. I am very happy with how this turned out, it was hard to get the wings/arms to stay up like that and still have him be able to stand up on his own, but all the work was worth it for such an awesome sculpture.
Sculptures like this, as well as many other pieces can be commissioned by me. Check out my online store here: www.YellerCrakka.artfire.com
