How much time is needed to infuse clay with a soul?
Only a true master such as *Sleetwealth knows; as again and again, she captures life within her work.

I just happen to be the caretaker of this beautiful example of sculptural energy.
I won't say "Own", that would be akin to slavery; I will say that I am fortunate to be able to give this haunting creature a home.

Every piece of artwork that I've seen done by this artist captures this magic, and I look forward to being able to welcome more of them into my home; no matter the cost, they are worth it.

I really like this figurine. Did you use polymere clay? How on earth did you paint in such fine and minute details? I was looking at your other figurines and they were just as cleverly done. You are quite good at both the male and female anatomy. Usually I see artists that are more expert in one or the other. You have both down! Great job. Please let me know what materials you used and how you painted it. Is it airbrushed?

Yes it is polymer clay. I paint with a magnification visor. And I use pastels and oil paint.. not airbrush, though I do use an airbrush for other things.
Thank you. I dont sculpt males often because I sell in a doll nitche,but I do study male anatomy too.

Yeah, sorry about that male/female thing. I think I got your clay figures mixed in with someone else who sculpted a male selkie. It was one of the results from the search that I had going at the time. But all your female sculptures look great.
The painting is incredible. I love the soft tonal changes that give it that much more of a lifelike appearance. Do keep it up! You are doing such a lovely job!

It will help I'm sure! The reason why people dont sculpt as much as draw is because its so daunting XD

its a differnt kind of job with differnt challanges,but it easier in some sences because the volume is there and you push and pull till it looks right.

well whats the worst that could happen? It doenst look good and you try again. The clay is skin colored so you dont have to paint very much.. and you dont have to think about values, placement of highlights,shadows etc. And you dont have to worry about foreshorteing or perspective.

It actually really aggrivates me that you don't leave an artists comment when you post your work. I would love to know about materials, time in, your inspirations, etc. But all I get is the work. I enjoy your work a lot, but I think the viewing experience would be richer with more information...

I apologize for that . I try to say something if I can think. The only excuse I have is I just came back from the hospital yesterday and very doped up. I will try to add more information about each peice.:)

Selkies are a pretty obscure myth and most as not drawn or sculpted with anthing but a typical irish look.

I remember watching a movie way back when about Selkie's. I've always found them pretty fascinating! ^_^
And I really enjoy your interpretation of it!

Roan inish is one selkie movie,but I see no reason to stay in strict interpretations of what they look like. I have a concept stewing for a mermaid ,but I need alot of groundwork for it.

Roan Inish! That's it! My friend and I watched it... and we sort of got a little obsessed with it. Our obsession lasted for about a week! Lol!
...... I think you should make another selkie. xD
