Shinerai Gift by Vertaki Shinerai Gift by Vertaki
ok i donno why in the world its glossy... my mat finish.. made it slightly shiny then my flash on my camera blew it out of proportion o-O.... oh well...

LOOK the earing moves!!! (see far bottom right image) :D i know the ball on the earing isnt that big but clay dosnt wanna stick to thread and i needed to cover the knot.

this is my attempt at :iconshinerai: awsome character. he stands at about 2 inch tall and about 3-4 inches long i am doing this on a complete random whim, and the majority of the reason is out of all the great artists that ive seen on DA. shinerai is one of the few who took the time to reply to my comments when he prolly gets 100's a day
and trust me, i kept replying and he kept respondin :P

as for people who want me to make their own character, i do comissions in either clay or metal (this sculpture i made from clay with a small amature inside him) if your interested please check my commisions page.

if your wondering about paint. i use like a.. smalll brussh :3 reaper and P3 brushes. and i use P3 paints as well as citidel. for miniature painting ^_^ i prefer working small but i CAN work big. i used 4 colors. red, yellow, umber and white (highlight) and i mixed them in a tealight candle.. >.> don't judge i don't have a nifty paint mixer


my next gift goes to...!!! :iconbeastofoblivion: WEW!! :3

Amazing! The scale of this is what blows me away! I'm currently trying to do something like this, more of an awkward pose and b/c the pose, requires a base.


"don't judge i don't have a nifty paint mixer" A tealight candle? that is brilliant... I'm stuck with using old, empty paint bottles for the smaller paints and a piece of cardboard for the larger.

this is really awesome. I lovee sculpting. did you use red or white clay? because with biger sculptures i use red but with ones as small as this I would use white. also what tool did you use to get in all the detail or the feather on that small of a sculpture? thank god this did break in the kiln =.= its am-ahzung

Vertaki Featured By Owner Mar 24, 2011  Professional Filmographer

yea im scratching my head on that too actually.. it was a mate finish so I donno why it glossed over but it went away 3 days later @_@

as for the kiln.... honestly its as dangerous as on oven -.- i mean really.. keep it on cement in a well ventilated area (garage) should be fine

zeb-bra Featured By Owner Mar 24, 2011  Student General Artist
thats too weird. I might try that and se what happens ill let you know. do you like it better without the gloss? cause it looks purty glossy :D
and thats good to know. i just got an airbrsh so once I recover so $$ from and all that jazz i might start looking around for one.
