mixed some different types of clay together for test, made this GoTG inspired chibi :D
I have yet to see the new movie. . . but "Groot" looks cool

this picture is life-size of the actual statue.

"Groot" character/name is property of Marvel
this chibi design is property of the artist 

P.S.~ if you see this image around the web anywhere being sold as a "print" it's being stolen~ (I've already been informed of someone on Etsy selling it on pillowcases without permission, and there are probably a few more doing it elsewhere). I didn't give permission for anyone to sell pillows or cards or anything with this on with the watermark removed. please beware of people selling this image on things! the original image posted of this is this one right here, and it's so small and low res that if you buy it on something else the person selling it is bound to have blown it up larger than it was meant to be and the effect will be something blurry or pixellated/poor quality.

Sculpture Commissions FAQ----> sculpture commission FAQ :)I still operate sculpture commissions here on DA :> Here are some FAQs~


Serious commissions and requests for quotes are always welcome, please contact me with a note here if you would like discuss one. It is best to ask for a quote with a detailed description of what you have in mind because the range of sculptures I make is very broad. It is hard to give a 'ball park' figure just based on the size, or something like that. I will need to know the details to give a proper quote.
Price range
My sculptures usually range in price from around $110 USD (plus shipping) to around $600 USD (plus shipping) for larger highly detailed ones. I also work for Envydolls making art dolls and BJD, and those can go for even higher prices as unique articulated art works.
It would save time for everyone if you are interested in a general commission to know that I usually don't sell sculptures for less than $110, and that if you ar

This looks absolutely amazing. 
maileen22992 Featured By Owner Dec 13, 2014
this is incredible!

i work with oven bake clay myself, but i am no where nears as talented as you.

i know you said you mixed different types of clays to make this, does that mean that you used something like air dry and oven baked together? i didn't know that types could be mixed since different ones dry/harden differently.

anyway, i can't wait to see what else you create!!
BastardPrince Featured By Owner Dec 13, 2014
thanks~! ^^

no, I don't mix two types with different curing methods together. I don't think it's a good idea to use one type on top of another type either as they might have different expansion properties in a dry/humid environment and one may crack. I just meant that I mixed different types of oven baked polymer clays that all cure at roughly the same temperature, like Sculpey, Cernit, Fimo, Kato or Bozzi together sometimes. Some of these brands have different properties like hardness when cured and you can make a sculpture stronger by mixing them :>
Oh my god! This model is incredible! Did you use marbles for his eyes?
BastardPrince Featured By Owner Dec 13, 2014
thank you ^^ no I use stone. :>

KingPeanutButter Featured By Owner Nov 4, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
amazing!! but don't you think its a little WAY OVER PRICED
BastardPrince Featured By Owner Edited Nov 5, 2014
thank you.

no, it's not way over priced because you see this isn't a mass-produced molded vinyl toy or something. this is a designed, handmade personally signed sculpture. each one of these takes nearly 2 full days to make. the minimum wage in my country for 2 full days' work is equivalent to roughly $127 USD, and a skilled wage is closer to twice that per two days. so this sculpture handmade by a skilled artisan is going for less than the minimum wage of an average person. and you can't even live independently on a minimum wage where I live. so not really overpriced. out of some people's causal spending range maybe but you have to pay artists a living, or they can't spend their time being artists and making things. 
KingPeanutButter Featured By Owner Nov 5, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
ooh ok thanks! I thought it was just a mold of of the original thanks for clearing that up :D
