Thank you Pangolinia for inspiring me to create my very own sloth out of clay, after seeing your masterpiece Sad(o)):
I really love sloths and i am lucky enough to make the little guy. here he is:

That's a very interesting and great work! Very Happy And it is hanging! Curiously, while searching for poses for Mojo sloth, one of the species I've found in a "vertical" pose, was exactly the species you're presenting! Laughing
Only a little question... why you did it so symettrical? It would result much better with the limbs not paired. :)
Please take my comment only as a suggestion, I wished I was able of making such a great figure. cheers Very Happy

Thank you Roger. i put his feet together because it is a better support for him on his branch.

Thanks Lance, as I don't sculpt I always think things are easier. I have a huge admiration for all of you that can make your own figures. As I told, the pale-throated sloth was a fantastic idea. I'm eager to see more unusual species from you. Very Happy

Nice that you have more projects in mind. Will you continue with South American fauna?
A pink fairy armadillo would be a hard challenge! affraid Very Happy
... or a bellbird, or the illusive uirapuru, or a Patagonian mara Laughing - don't forget to share with us and good work! cheers

Great challenge, Lance !! Sad(o)): Sad(o)):
and Thank you very much for your good word. Very Happy Very Happy :)

For reference..
My sloths creator, Mr. Miura, argued and explained to me about how to make such hanging position, because there were 2 difficult points to solve; One was how to reinforce the hanging points, and another was the cost of branch he is hanging from.

About the strength of hanging points, at first he persisted to "claw-hanging"style, using wire on which he put clay, but he found it impossible because wire and clay are hard to stick in such thin shape.
Then he chaneged his mind to "hand/ palm-hanging" style, which at first he thought improbable, but it turned to be not bad after all..that's the photo in process;
