Okami Amaterasu Necklace by Gatobob Okami Amaterasu Necklace by Gatobob
Oh my the pressure of sculpting a goddess! 

Haha in all seriousness though this necklace was a lot more challenging than I gave it credit for in the beginning. The sculpt was tough since I had to incorporate so much wire to achieve the look I wanted. There is wire in literally every chunk that pokes out. The fire, all the limbs, the head, tail, everything. I wanted it to be interesting but also wearable.

Then came the paint job o_o I figured imitating 2-D art with thick brushstrokes would be easy. Nope. It was painstaking. Every brush stroke had to be perfect, and getting the black outline look involved carefully painting all the side bits, nooks, and crannies with jet black paint and not accidentally touching all of the bright, light surroundings.

But it does help to imitate brush strokes with an actual brush. That part was satisfying XD

anyway.

[ 100% hand sculpted from super sculpy/super sculpy firm blend, hand painted with acrylic paint ]

Awww, thanks a bunch man! I'm a little sad it went so fast and I never got to hang on to it. Maybe someday I'll do another or at least something similar.

Im not such a woman that like to wear necklaces, or any jewelry really, but THIS I would wear any day! I simply have to cross my fingers for you to get the urge to make another and that I in some magical way will get my hands on it. :D

This is so beautiful! It's not often that I see sculpted, actually holdable "fan art" and it always makes me happy when I do! I'm going to have to check out the rest of your gallery because you seem to do a lot of this sort of thing. Excellent work!
