Will start this thank you topic with a big THANK YOU to Blaine!
You all saw his tutorial of his creation and today, I had the pleasure to meet the bird in real!

I was given a package, with no knowledge of it being sent to me XD
I was like: huh? XD

Till I opened the package! It was very well packed indeed!
I saw red... and some blue... It was the Andean cock-of-the-rock! cheers

I saw the pin\rod and that is a very clever idea!

The bird gave me a big smile and I admire Blaines creativity and the will to create something from Sculpey clay!
It is sure a very unique bird and I am very happy to own him <3

Lets have a small walkaround!

Thank you Blaine for this wonderful bird! One that I never knew before, and now I am a proud owner of one  drunken  cheers

Hi Karin and everyone,

I am glad you liked him. I was nervous to try and make something, because I cannot compete with some of the talent on this forum haha, but all I had to paint were insects and spiders!.
I know your preferences indicated mostly mammals, but I was less comfortable making a mammal. I did see on your profile you also like tropical birds and fish, and your blog posts seem taxonomically-diverse, so I thought I would try a bird.
I am also happy it made it safely.
This swap thing is a fun idea and I am already looking forward to next year! haha.

Wonderful Karin! Apparently, Blaine got nervous when I said these birds love to eat insects. Laughing It may explain why it arrived so quickly. A very interesting species and a very respectable work from our bug man! cheers

Yes I was also surprised by how fast it got there. I went to the post office on Saturday, and before a holiday, and it still got to Karin in 5 days! When I get stuff from Europe it takes two weeks (I think US customs can be slow...).

Your bird is gorgeous, Karin drunken Respect for Blaine! I think it's great he stepped out of his chitin-comfortzone and made a bird! And what a wonderful first attempt for a sculpture! Lovely! cheers

I took my repaint to the post office yesterday, so I expect it will arrive at my swap partner early this week.

And I know the swap made for me already arrived, but I won't be home until upcoming weekend. So stay tuned for pictures drunken

Yay, I can say that my swap figure has officially arrived! cheers I had it sent to my parents place and wasn't going there for another week or so. But there was a family dinner planned so my parents handed me the little parcel over just before I was about to take the train back home. Very Happy bounce

I'm still in the train right now so I can't really show you any good pictures right now. But still I took some while I was unboxing it in the train. (Without scissors or the like! So it took a little longer than usual due to the duct tape)

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
(yes, that train is old. The one I'm now in is newer (and warmer) luckily)

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

I'll leave you with a cliff-hanger Wink

Time to show my STS Swap repaint! I know it arrived a little while ago, but I only got the opportunity to unpack it this morning. cheers And it came from.. Karin Very Happy And gosh, it's gorgeous and brilliant <3 Not only repainted she a wolf, one of my favourite animal species, but she added some personal extras as well. Just look at it:

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

She knows I'm studying archaeology and she added some self-made archaeologist's tools (a trowel and a tape measure) in a neat little satchel. And she even added a tiny sculpted wolf artefact from an ancient Wolf Culture drunken

Karin, thank you so incredibly much for this gorgeous repaint with lovely accessories. I'll cherish it forever <3

I'll share some better pictures soon, but I just wanted to share this as soon as possible!

Hurray, I'm so glad he arrived safely and that you like him, Anne-Joke! cheers And yes, it's a 'grootoorvos' or 'lepelhond', which is a bat-eared fox in English Smile I really enjoyed painting him! It really encouraged me to do repaints more often! cheers

Wonderful fox ! And a very rare guest among models , - what a great idea cheers

He is beautyful, and has a great colour. And then he is adventurous and charming Very Happy Applause

He is called an "Øreræv" in Danish, - that means "Ear-fox" ! Very inventive, isn't it Laughing

Nice wolf and fox! The wolf's tool belt and artifact look like lots of fun. The species transformation for the fox is perfect using that model. I also like the pictures of him finding his way home. Smile

Also, I received a package today! I will share some pictures soon- the figure has charm in both the usual sense and, maybe, a more magical sense... Wink

In Dutch the bat-eared fox is called 'grootoorvos' or 'lepelhond'. 'Grootoorvos' literally means 'big-eared fox', but 'lepelhond' means 'spoon dog' Laughing I don't know who came up with the latter. Maybe because their ears have the shape of spoons, or something??

Thank you very much, Andy, for both the wolf and the fox! The fox was very much fun to repaint and I'm glad I could use Papo's fennec to do so Smile The wolf is really happy at home. I put him in a nice archaeology spot, together with some dolmen and some Neanderthalers!

So, my swap package arrived the other day, and it was a big surprise to see what was inside. Before we take a look, I want to say THANK YOU to our forum member Eternity for painting and sending this beautiful model! sunny  It's a unique addition to my collection and I'm enjoying it quite a bit. Smile

Here is what emerged from the box:
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Shocked A dragon!- and one with a very interesting aesthetic. It has a gray stone texture like a statue, with patches of greenish lichen or moss growing on it (or, someone might even claim that is a hibernating dragon showing through). Twining around this surface are eye-catching, metallic gold vines blooming with red and white flowers- surely a sign that this statue-dragon has a magical aura to it. If you trace them with your finger, the vines extend to the gold claws, the tail tip, and up the neck to the head (here a gold leaf forms the eye of the dragon!). I couldn't help but take a lot of pictures- it was fun and the figure kept shifting its appearance depending on the light or colors around it.

Thanks again Eternity for this custom. I have just a few other dragons and this one is special. I think it will probably function as a sort of guardian spirit for the other animals. Very Happy

What an unusual, wonderfully inventive dragon !!! cheers  flower  alien  flower  sunny

It is obvious that Eternity has put a lot of thought and time and skills into this magnificent creature bounce Applause

And it is so great to see that this stone-hard dragon with a heart of flowers, landed with you, where she is obviously having a good time and gets appreciated the way she sould be drunken

What a gorgeous and unique figurine! drunken I really love how it's made into a statue, or indeed a hibernating dragon. Such a wonderful addition to your collection! I love to see it together with your other customs/repaints; what a nice bunch! Thanks for sharing all those lovely photographs, Andy. I really enjoyed watching your dragon with all the different lightings/backgrounds Smile

I am completely amazed with how this swap is working! The archaeologist wolf, the computer working fox and that impressive dragon are all wonderful pieces! Looking forward to see more. bounce bounce

Welcome on the forum, Eternity! Very Happy What a lovely entrance; the first thing you do is entering the STS swap with your gorgeous dragon! cheers And I really like your silver cheetah - the pink nose is very cute indeed. Who made it for you?

How many swaps still have to be received? scratch I lost count xD

Today I am the very happy recipient of a Chromacris species figure from....Susanne! Wow, thanks Susanne, you did a wonderful job painting (better than I could have done myself!). And it's a nice adult to compliment the nymph by Play Visions. It looks like the Bullyland Grasshopper was used as the base, so it's a nice, sturdy, large figure. I am truly impressed. Thanks again!

I am so happy that it arrived cheers
The poor thing has been travelling for almost 3 weeks, - perhaps he was a trip in it's homeland in Peru ? Laughing

Thankyou, Blain and Kosta, for your kind words ! Very Happy

There is a range of grashoppers called [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] , and of course I wanted to make one for Blaine.
But most of them have a quite different shape, - and some are so magnificently "painted" by Mother Nature that I could never make one geek
So I chose this guy.
However it was also quite difficult. So he is not very accurate, but it seems that Blaine can see what he is anyway Laughing

Do you remember which species you based it on? Looks a little like C. colorata? :)
