NOTE: All ideas for these unicorns were stolen from the internet.  Twisted Evil
None of them were invented by me. Just copied because I loved them so much.
I just wanted to see if I could sculpt something from scratch with polymere clay.
In the end I gave birth to 4 creatures.   Laughing
And I now I can honestly say that I like painting a model,
but sculpting a model sure is not my cup of tea.

First one to try was Pinecone: (notice the stolen art in the background! And where it goes horribly wrong....heheh.)


End result:


Second one was Merle:
(The pose is totally stolen from the internet.)
I read up on making wired skeletons and downloaded a horse example.

That turned into this:

That turned into that:

After painting I added some mohair:


Third one was Alexis.
I wanted to try out sculpting hair/manes.
So I figured the best horse with a nice head of hair would be a My Little Pony.  Laughing


The end result: (colour scheme stolen from the internet.)


Fourth try was Storm.
I wanted a bowing Unicorn with sculpted manes.
That was the reason Alexis was born in the first place.
Well.. I couldn't do it.  Evil or Very Mad But I liked how the mohair turned out on Merle so I gave that another try.

After a lot of polymere clay I ended up with this:

Everything anatomical is off the charts. I can't do legs or hooves right on any of those 4 sculpts. Heads are always too small or too big. I can't sculpt manes if my life would depend on it. So I have accepted that I'm not really good at sculpting with polymere clay. As a matter of fact, I don't like doing it. It's too much stress for me. Polymere clay is fighting me, not working with me. LOL  Laughing  
Luckily I'm confident when it comes to painting and enjoyed the final outcome. (Idea for colours were also stolen/copied from DeviantArt)



My other Unicorns are customized horses from well known brands.
I just change the position of a leg or head, stick a horn on it and I'm done. clown
Ready for painting! My favourite part! cheers

Wow, I actually think those are quite good. I sure never could sculpt something like that (I like painting better too). Great job!

They are amazing affraid
Even if they are fantay animals they are beautyfully sculptured, with perfect proportions and details Applause

Thay are so different, and still have a ton of charm in common , - I think Schleich and some others could learn a thing or two from you bounce cheers

Simone, I think Pinecone is a legendary creation! Yes, it is something completely out of this world, with its multi-interpretable tail, elegant long hind legs and a hairstyle able of making the hairs of a bald man to stand on end! Shocked Also, is there in thiw legendary world such a cute face? ... I doubt. Suspect flower
Other works are also really great but now I want only to concentrate my energies in that outstanding Pinecone. Very Happy

Simone, these are all quite good! Very Happy I loved every single one of them! From their paint jobs to their positions, I think you did an excelllent job with them! Applause

Alexis definitely wouldn´t feel out of place in MLP! She has both an alluring and beautiful air about her, plus black is my favorite color, which just makes me love her more!
