Hi,
I saw all you people busy with clay and well, I tried something too:
first, the tail:

and the head:


on it's back:

I also made a small diorama so it could swim in the sea (instead of the table)


I'm not quite sure if it is a male or a female.
Of course it is not as good as harriet's peacock and sable calf, but I hope you like it.

That is a great job! I love the face, it reminds me of when I was a child and we used to go to the beach almost daily to see the seals and sea lions.

I used DAS clay, it dries in air so you don't have to bake it.

Nice idea to make the head and tail sticking out above water. Would like to see this concept done by one of the companies using a hippo, croc, and seals.
