"Sentinel" by BrittaM "Sentinel" by BrittaM
My completed "Sentinel" creature sculpt. Took around 70 hours from initial armature build to final paint job....most of that time was spent on the scales (ok, not most, but a lot....)

These creatures are an original creation of mine; this sculpt is ultimately going to be part of a personal "bestiary" of creatures I am currently working on and looking to get published at some point in the (hopefully) not too distant future.

Looks so regal and...vigilant. I'd hate to have to cross that in a dark alley, assuming it is even dangerous, right? Lovely job.

Of course it's dangerous ;D Guess I didn't include much on them in the description; they're actually an incredibly confrontational species used as a guard for important individuals or places, hence the name "sentinel." Kind of hard to tell in this photo, but he's got a bunch of cracked scales and scars.

It is exceedingly interesting! I love the fact that the concept of the creature was created by you yourself.
Might I ask what material you used to make this impressive sculpture? It looks rather like wood. :D

I enjoy designing original creatures; got a whole portfolio of them going. This guy's made from Super Sculpey clay. I can't imagine trying to carve something like this out of wood!

Your work is amazing! It's great that you are into such a creative pursuit!
The works of wood craftsmanship can be so intricate and skillfully carved, that it's hard to imagine with what kind of magic it was made. :D
