This is really good! ^^

Is this a figure where you can move the limbs? if so, how have you made it? I've tried millions of materials to make movable dolls.. But they never really turn out like I want them.. :(

If you don't want to tell it's fine :)

that's fantastic. The jar is the best part:heart:so creepy and yet the sculpture looks so childlike and innocent despite the morbid theme

Even when devoid of a face, facial muscles & eyes that would give away how this little orphan is feeling, you can still get a pretty good idea of the emotions involved.

To me, sitting on that little jar leant on one elbow & looking to one side, the little orphan looks unenthused, prehaps a little bored. Part of me almost wishes I could give the little one something to do, cheer him up X3

this is one of my favorites!
however, i think i like more the outside pictures you have on your website, they are brighter and easier to see the details of the sculptures.

My question is, did you make a mold for the heads yourself?


Oh, and to answer someone else's comment: you could make one with movable joints for stopmotion (that would be very awsome).

yeah I posted only images of the ones I think would work as prints... on my website I'm showing more images of them to really "show" them more in their whole form :) these are more just like promo art for them or something :)
yep made the mold myself :)
hehe and thanks ;)

This is such a awesome character design. Stop motion??? That would be amazing no?
