One of my alltime favorite animals was sadly not in my collection until i made him out of clay. Incase you dont know he is a potto. which is an African animal related to lemurs and bushbabies. I know that playvisions made a potto but it is now impossible to obtain. so here he is:

here he is unpainted:

here he is completed:



i hope you like him as much as i do..... Very Happy

Lance, that is a very nice work and an excelent idea. monkey Very Happy
It is good to some brands remember that if they want to make really cute animals they don't have to waste their time making cute grizzlies, crocodilies, etc. There are many interesting animals in this world that are naturally cute and would be very interesting to children and adulte collectors. Thanks for sharing your great work and photos. Very Happy

I absolutely love him cheers

A Potto ! At first I thought you couldn`t spell to Photo ( tongue ) becaus I never heard about this little, lovely critter before ! Laughing

The way you make him is the ultimate charming way !
Keep this going, I hope you have a whole Lance-design Noah`s arc with REALLY rare animals some day bounce bounce cheers

thank you Harriet, Christophe, Joan, and Susanne! I will try to post pics of all my handmade clay models. i have to say that this potto is one of my favorite clay models i have made. he is not to a particular scale and is large compared to typical schleich models. and yes i will continue to make rare animals in the future. Very Happy

that potto is tooooo cute!

you have a great folk-art style. they look like they could be traditional native representations of characters out of old folk tales.
