Mangetsu

This watercolor I did of a komurasaki hermit crab I once had gets to be in a miniature picture frame on a set I’m animating on. Her name was Mangetsu. There’s another painting of just the fox nose shell she’s wearing.

Hair

Armature wire, copper wire, cold weld, k&s brass tubing, embroidery floss, foam, latex, and superglue. Six hours later I have one animatable ponytail.
