This is a commissioned sculpture I made of Caramel the English Shepherd (winner of the Custom Pet Sculpture contest). I’m really happy with how it turned out! One of the best sculptures I have made ^_^

I finished my Ronin Yoshino chibi figurine! Handmade out of polymer clay and hand painted with acrylic paints. I’ll be making more sculptures of other characters from my Ronin Yoshino manga series…

I just finished painting this small wooden box! Hand painted with acrylic paints and felt lining inside the box. The top of the box features the Ronin Yoshino with a farm behind her – representing what she does (protecting the farmers from various threats). The background was inspired from a Hasui Kawase woodblock painting.
The 7 symbols on the box symbolize the Seven Swordsmen [七剣士] from my Ronin Yoshino [浪人よしの] manga series. These symbols were inspired from various aspects of Japanese culture…
The symbols are: Tengu no Uchiwa (Tengu’s fan), Shimenawa (sacred rope), Kitsunemen (fox mask), Taiko (drum), Amenonuhoko (heavenly jeweled spear), Uchide-no-Kozuchi (magic mallet), Someiyoshino (Yoshino Cherry Tree blossoms, symbolizing the protagonist, Yoshino) and Ama-no-Murakumo-no-Tsurugi (Sword of the Gathering Clouds of Heaven) along with the Cintāmaṇi (wishing jewel).
What all these items do, you’ll have to find out in my manga ;)

This is a small figurine I had made of a Sasquatch. It was fun to make! First I made a aluminum foil model, then formed clay muscles, formed colored clay over the muscles, added glass beads for eyes (if the light hits it right, the eyes seem to glow), textured the fur and made a base to resemble grass…
