Meet ROY & BIV!
(Well, and me, obviously…which I’d not normally do, but it helps provide scale in this case, so oh well…)
I decided to make a “three-volume set” of dinosaurs after being inspired by an article in National Geographic this year. I decided that, since we don’t REALLY know what colors dinosaurs were, I could go crazy with a rainbow of color. What started out as a one dinosaur project quickly – in my routine manner of making things more complicated…. :-/ -morphed into 3 dinosaurs:
ROY (Red, Orange, Yellow)
BIV (Blue, Indigo, Violet)
ROY and BIV now done, I’ll work on G shortly. At the time I’m writing this, G is currently just an egg. I think G himself is running around hiding in the studio (in my brain, anyway!). At the moment, he’s being elusive, but I’ll find him, and will share him here when I do.
These critters are covered in scraps of fabric.
I’ve included the second picture of the feet and bases so you can see those. I used polymer clay for the talons and was quite pleased with how they turned out.
Each critter was planned to have only 2 contact points on the base, and given their dynamic poses, that provided a lovely learning opportunity for me!
