@Gabriell Claries Cuties


#42

Can it be me? I would love to have one of your babies!!


#43

I have hit a wall with the ears sticking the vinyl keeps rejecting the adhesives but I am not giving up. She is way more "blue than I intended but the good news is the primer is holding it on! so no stripping and going backwards, just having fun. Legs and arms done, head is still not cooperating. I have an idea for the tail not sure it will work but it will be fun to play.

Lucky for me I have two babies so if one fails I can try again.


#44

I don’t know what I am doing and why I am doing celestial stars in constellations (may be because I want them to be glowing at the dark later, after the final varnish), but one leg is done.

I can even see a slight turquoise hue around the stripes if I look really hard :rofl:.


#45

Oh. My. Goodness!!! You are soooo underestimating you avi baby! This is looking phenomenal!


#46

Looking really good !


#47

@Reefbubbles @marrabo So. Much. Tedious. Work! Never again! :smile:


#48

Do you need some sort of “rod” as an anchor for the ears?


#49

That is turning out beautiful, thats it my avi is going in the garbage!

Seriously, just beatuiful what a great job! You are killin it mama!


#50

Nope… I think there might be a moisture issue or I just need to find another adhesive. I have been drying it outdoors and it has been super wet and rainy (its in a dry place outside but…)

I made ears out of epoxy putty, not the best choice but it is what I had on hand.

I have two of the same baby, if the ears don’t work out I will just use the other head.


#51

@Gabriell Thank you! I think I’ve got carried away a little bit with the stars/dots, but I don’t want to spend any time and effort to remove some as it leaves white discoloration under them. Or maybe I feel that way because I look at all 4 limb hanging together. But it’s ok as this baby Avi will be special ‘the enlightened one’ as I’ll star his forehead with ‘enlightened’ symbol, recommended by my friend from India. I initially wanted to have the shape of lotos, but she talked me out of it.
Hope I’ll finish his head before Game of Thrones! Last episode! I am excited and sad as it comes to the end! And so disappointed in G. Martin that he never finished his book :frowning:


#52

@YelenaRey That is one beautiful leg! I love your thought process with the dots, so creative. I knew you were making an awesome baby. And I know that @Gabriell is making a beautiful baby too. Can’t wait to see them finished!


#53

@Anne Annette, thank you so much for your kind words! I truly feel like you giving me too much credit. You didn’t see the whole baby yet. He is nothing what I had in mind, and everytime when I add something I feel like I am overdoing it. Oh well, it’s a bumpy ride…
Plus I also need to root a mohawk for him, will see how that go.


#54

Mohawks are my favorite. :+1:


#55

I need opinions, please. All avatars that I saw has stars on their cheeks under their eyes, I feel like my ‘enlightened’ baby already looks like Cirque du Soleil character - cool, but weird. Do you think he needs stars under his eyes? I am leaning toward No, but need the second set of eyes. Thank you!


#56

All Avatars are different so you can add them if you want but my goodness isn’t he cute!!!


#57

Just curious but were you happy with the GOT ending?


#58

No, not happy at all! Very disappointed. I demand alternative ending!


#59

He is cuter as an avi than realistic painting,wow. I personally am loving his star patterns. I truly believe if this was not your baby with its many birth pangs :rofl:. And you came across him from another artist you would absolutely love him!


#60

I think he is beautiful as he is and you are over thinking it , you are your own worse critic
