Amethyst\'s Arts and Crafts
« on: March 08, 2016, 01:01:20 AM »
Here's my little space to post art and other odds and ends that aren't drawings/sketches. These can include plushies, sculpture, ceramics, accessories, and any other miscellaneous crafts I feel like making. I'll probably mainly post things related to animals/anthros on here, of course.

I can be lazy though, so hopefully I can get by butt into gear and post stuff regularly! And I'll try to include WIPs when I can.

Feel free to comment on things, and I'm definitely open to any advice/critique/even criticism you may have. And also just questions in general ^^

Here's a project I've been working on in ceramics since late January-ish. I've decided to call him "Le chevalier des chats" (The knight of cats), or Louie for short. I just really wanted to create a dapper cat in a 1700s French military uniform....

Here's the reference sketch I drew to begin with-


Head in progress-


Head mounted on torso, plus beginnings of a paw-


Finished with sculpting and waiting to be bisque/first time fired-



Now I've glazed him and he's been fired a second time. His sword broke in half so I just need to glue it back together again and he'll finally be finished ^^ More pics to come.

Louie, finally :D I love it, really. Especially the details on his uniform, it's really well made :)

Can't wait to see more of your works.

I am not an african lion. It is the lands to the east which I call home. From the mighty spires of Taurus, through the Cilician Gates, all the way to cold Cimmeria. From Baktria I carry Zarathustra's holy fire to the dusty ruins of Lydia. The scorching desert wind is my only companion as history unfolds in my wake.



I am the Clockwork King of the Three in One. In you is an egg of my brother-sister, who possesses invisible knowledge of words and swords, which you shall nurture until the Hortator comes.

Thank you guys for the nice comments ^^ I've been doing so much 3D art, I need to get back into drawing more sometime too XD But here's some finished pics of Louie(except the sword tip, which has since been reattached):




I painted/glazed him to be a gray and white tabby like my own cat, but the gray turned out slightly brownish. I don't mind at all though; the colors can sometimes be a little unpredictable.

Here's a plushie I've been working on recently. I wanted to create a ram/sheep thing with a fantasy-ish twist. I'm considering calling the species "drams" or something.

Design sketch-


Prototype #4-



There's still a bunch of little things to finalize. The eyes will be different and the nose will be embroidered. I'm thinking of making the horns and hooves out of clay(each dram has differently shaped horns) and painted. As for the fleece, I was wanting to use colorful minky/plush fur and embroider a swirl/spiral design throughout it.

Another ceramics project, coming up! Ram horns are cool, and so are skulls. And celtic/mystical symbols. Mix them together and you got something I'm tentatively titling "Black Sheep".

Early sculpting

Main skull finished, figuring out how the heck to make the horns

Alas, poor Yor-ram... Also, teefs

Details on horns and triskele/symbols


The skull is currently glazed and being fired a second time. Fingers crossed the colors turn out how I want them....

Also, preview for something I started a little while ago:

Thank you XD I can't wait until it's finished :>

As for the horse head from the last post. If you know some Norse mythology, he's got 8 legs ;)

Yup, and he's turning out pretty big ^^'

Posting some random medallions/pendants I made, including some with Norse runes. They're really quick(except that bird one X3) and fun to make so I might do a whole batch if I have leftover clay near the end of the semester.

The skull is finished :3 The colors turned out almost exactly how I wanted them so that's really cool. Except the green, which turned out darker than I planned. Oh well I guess ^^


More on Sleipnir-

Now has all 8 legs, and working on smoothing him out


Those legs, I swear...They keep wanting to break off, especially at the ankles.
