Draw This Again Contest by yingmakes Draw This Again Contest by yingmakes
What? My entry for the "Draw this again" competition on DA. :)

Details: ~5cm tall. Sculpted with polymer clay, painted with acrylics and glazed. :)

My Comments:
I hope I submitted this in time to be eligible!!! It was a massive rush to submit it, haha.

Anyway, the first Shinx was made way back in December 2009. Nearly 3 years ago!!! I'd like to think a large number of things have improved since then.

I'm better at looking at an image and reproducing it. This ([link](Pok%C3%A9mon) is a link to the Bulbapedia page for Shinx. My second Shinx looks much more similar to the official art than the first one! What was I even thinking!!

You can also see how I have improved in smoothness when sculpting, and in anatomy. Look at his paws! Hahaha. Woow.

One thing that remains the same is that I still use the exact same materials! I bet the paint I used was exactly the same! I buy it in large amounts, so I wouldn't be surprised, haha. :D

Haha, glad you like it! I probably won't make a tutorial out of this guy unfortunately. D: But he's really not too hard, there are some simple shapes there. xD

Yeah,in paint everything with acrylics. The brand I used was reeves and the colour was blue lake. I didn't just use blue lake tho, I mixed it with other colors, and that particular colour seems to have issues with my laze, haha. Makes the paint go green...

D'aww, I think they're both cute; The second one looks more like the shinx from the series, and the first one looks like there's some of your own style in there too, which is nice.

-I wish I could sculpt- ;-;
