" I was thinking something of a cat summoner, with the a creature (preferably the fox/cat in the sculptural piece) by its side, or leaping out of the fabric of the shrine maiden outfit it will be wearing. Of course i want something a little more modern or feline. after all it's a cat summoner and i don't need the colors to be traditionally red and white. in fact, my idea is that it summons cats/animals/beasts which are embroidered on its outfit, thus the idea of having the fox partially leaping off the fabric. I like soft pastel watercolors like the one above, but certainly more of it. I like it to be flowy, like as if it's standing against a strong enemy/gust of wind, and preparing for battle. i want it to be holding a crystal ball, so...... erm yea getting a small marble or something clear so that it can hold it would be perfect. i don't want a staff or rod or divining stick. What will be even better if the fox that is leaping off the fabric can coil around the crystal ball, like a wisp of smoke. Do you think you can sculpt a couple of small kitties be around his feet/robe? I want No Face to be cleverly hidden somewhere... I just want to tie it up with the theme on the white fox sculptural piece. "

Sorry, I was quite inactive here in my blogspot because I was way too busy with many art projects and running errands. At least, glad I have free time to write this blog entry again now. Last 2010 year, my client, cat + toy lover Edward from Singapore contacted me that he was interested to commission me so I added him to my future list.
Currently, he intended to make his 2 years' wait worth it! Edward requested me to create one sculptural piece and one custom toy. He saw my previous work " Rabbit Mask " and loved it so he wanted me to make a commissioned sculptural piece. He cancelled my big cat sketches so he preferred a handsome white fox and a lot of kitties. Click to view my wip photos below...
WARNING: many heavy photos!
At first, it was hard to sculpt many teeny weeny kitties so my hands were a little bit hurt. But hey, it was so fun to work on them!
Plate stand is awesome!
And hanging, too!
6" x 6" inches
Mixed media sculptural piece
For the custom Trikky toy, he explained to me:
He requested about someone sitting on Cat Summoner's head accessory, for example, cute slimes, birds, wolf pelt.... but we cancelled this head accessory request. Anyway, this was my very first challenge to make a drape / dress! Glad I did it well, hooray! Enjoy viewing my wip photos!
TA-DA! My mission accomplished! *Mall dances happily crazily* This toy measures 7" inches. For the medium, I used Magic Sculpt, garden wires, wire mat, masking tape / craft tape, aluminum foils, cruelty-free furs, wax threads, antique bell, acrylic and colored pencil.
Can you find a hidden No-Face mask?
I wasn't happy with the bad weather so I took a few beautiful shots of it.
By the way, I made a short film. Yes, very very short... it runs at 1 minute something. I greatly thank my closest awesome talented friend / photographer / filmmaker Jean-Sebastien Monzani, who edited my video and put his own music in it for my help. Thank you so much!
