Kyurem Sculpture by caffwin Kyurem Sculpture by caffwin
Kyurem was a commission from a fellow community member!
He's 6" long and 5" tall. ^_^

Made from fimo and sculpey clay, wire for support.

I'm actually quite a fan of most of the 5th generation legendary Pokemon. :o

And a huge thanks goes to Huy for helping me get an actual back view of this guy. :)

Where do you find your clay to work with? I am totally interested in creating my own sculptures but have no one to turn to for help except an eight year old....

Fimo clay is at a lot of arts and crafts stores! If you have a local Michael's or Joann's, they'll be sure to have a good selection. :)

What materials do you usually use in these works? I'm very interested in learning how to make sculptures also

It's polymer clay (look for either FIMO or Sculpey). :D
You can get it from any craft store, and they come in a variety of colors.

Doesn't Kyurem look like a Tyrannosaurus Rex when standing upright ?
Because it does . Look at it in the game of Pokemon.

aaaaw it's so cuuute!

does kyurem's battle animation remind you of Mother Brain from Super Metroid? the way it steps forward and back is just.... yeah... Mother Brain-ish. o.0

I've played Metroid once or twice, but it's the GBA version (it's pretty hard!); is he on there?

Aw, thank you again! <3

Hmmm, I dont think Mother Brain is on the GBA game, but Ridley is! He's in like every Metroid game. Woah, have you thought about ever making a Ridley sculpture? He's sort of dragon-ish like Kyurem, I bet he'd look really cool! :D

Yeah, fingerprints kill.. it makes things look a lot less professional and it bugs the crap out of me haha.

This looks really nice. The shape of the wings was done well, it looks so puffy. :D

He is actually pretty scary looking, so "puffy" is definitely a first for me to hear. XD

I've been tackling more complicated sculptures these days, and it's been a lot of fun despite the amount of work and time involved. :D
I definitely am proud of this; at first I honestly thought he would come out all disfigured and not so proportionate. haha

This is amazing!
The amount of detail you've put in is astounding, and those 'wings' just look so cool!
It's true, and I have to agree that the more I look at the 5th gen 'mons,
the more I just can't help liking 'em.
This guy is especially amazing - you did him justice!

I've never had to work with wings that looked like that before, and I'll tell you that it was definitely intimidating at first! But once I started them, they were a lot easier than I made them out to be originally, haha.

Yeah, the 5th generation legendaries are all so badass. I'm really happy with the game in general. ^_^

Thanks again for taking the time to leave me such a thoughtful comment. <3

Awesome work here, but shouldn't his left wing be shorter? Or maybe it's the angle?
Still awesome and I can see why you're fond of this guy.

Thanks! The wings were slightly off at the time, but they've been fixed before he was sent off to the commissioner. :)

This looks cool. Trough his wings are not place like that. If the reason for it is because it otherwise doesn't keep it's balance or you din't just get it right, then OK.
Reply
:iconcaffwin:
caffwin Featured By Owner Mar 18, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
Well, it was actually based off a pose that the person who commissioned me preferred, otherwise I would have made them the normal way. haha
Kyurem would have actually balanced way better with his wings spread out, though. If you look at how the weight would be distributed, he would have a much easier time standing up with his wings to the side than leaning around the middle (where the head would still weigh him forwards).

I appreciate the compliment though. :)

is it colored clay or did you paint him?

I used coloured clay, but I did a lot of mixing. XD
I would almost say that the mixing took longer than making certain parts. ^^

And thank you!
