Okami Amaterasu in Nature by Richi89 Okami Amaterasu in Nature by Richi89
I just had to take a picture of Amaterasu in my garden, it's only natural....(pun intended;)...oh I am so lame...)

Amaterasu, Goddess of the Sun from the game Okami.

Made with different coloured/textured card and hot glue. I experimented with a different type of armature this time. Instead of having a wire 'skeleton' I scrunched up pieces of scrap paper to give the overall form and began building on top of it. I found this way better as you can see the final overall form instead of just a skeleton.

This model is about 23cm from head to tail. I removed the solar disk in the back view to expose the flowy hair (most fun part to make)

This is lovely. We have to do paper animal sculptures for class. Do you know any good tutorials for stuff like folding paper to get certain shapes?

Sure but I need to know your range price first, do you do commissions too? And I try to get a credit card and paypal... Because even if I'll have 21 in may, my parents don't let me have one... But I'll have one I'm in age.

Well it depends on how long a sculpture takes and how it turns out. As for commissions, perhaps when I get back into it:)
