Raphael the Raven by Sir-Pumpkinhead Raphael the Raven by Sir-Pumpkinhead
A little sculpture I did based in one of my favorite games, Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island boss: Raphael the Raven :D

This photo was shot directly above the piece, here's one with an angle so you can check other details of it > [link]

I'm very happy to have made it (I had wanted to do it for a long time now) and am happy to have retaken clay again (I hadn't sculpted in years ^^; ). Hopefully I'll do more sculptures in the future :)

By the by, you can check the boss fight here > [link]

I also want to make some fanart of Kamek the Magikoopa and of Shyguys; hopefully I'll get to do it in a while ;)

Done with Guanajuato's clay, acrylic paints and sealer.

I'm sorry it's not a print :( however... let me see if I have the original file somewhere around so I could link you to it :D then you could download it and print it in photo quality paper so as to give it to your friend :dance: What do you think about that? ;)

Yes, that was like the BEST game of my childhood. I had a babysitter who had it, and that was my favorite thing to do when I was dropped off there.

Ah! :D perdona por haber puesto un post en inglés :XD: no me di cuenta que hablabas español ;P

No te preocupes, soy de la filosofia de: La única pregunta tonta es aquella que no se formula ^-^ Asi que, respondiendo a tu pregunta, "Guanajuato's clay" es, traducido literalmente, arcilla de Guanajuato. Éste último es el estado donde vivo :nod: La arcilla de la capital es usada por los artistas de la Universidad estatal para sus esculturas, de ahí la conozco :)
Un placer leer de ti, y cualquier otra duda que pudiese surgir, por favor no dudes en hacermela saber ^-^

disculpa la molestia, pero ahora me dejaste con mas dudas jajajaj

Si, es raro que hablen otro idioma, e incluso, dentro de los mismos hispanoparlantes, los hay que rehuyen de su lengua materna y sólo responden en inglés...

Ah, bueno, realmente no tienen nada en especial... hmmm... no es verdad, ahora recuerdo que una amiga mía decía que esta arcilla tenía algo mejor que muchas otras, pero si no mal recuerdo tenía que ver al momento de cocerla (proceso que no use ^^; yo simplemente esperé a que secara). Tendría que hablar con ella de nuevo para ver que era lo que exactamente la hacia especial, pero creo que es eso de cocerla. Yo la compro por que sale barata la cubeta (aunque no la uso muy seguido, casi no hago esculturas :( ).
Jejejeje! no hay problema, no es molestia ni nada por el estilo ^_^ al contrario, que bueno que preguntas, muestra el interés de querer saber más :nod: Espero haya resuelto tu duda :)
Mucha suerte también a tí, Prok-art :wave:

Si me gustaría, pero la verdad no me da mucho tiempo, además, cuando comienzo a hacer una escultura, tengo que terminarla rá;pido, de lo contrario la arcilla se seca y ya no le puedo hacer nada :(
Te agradezco mucho las amables palabras, Prok-art :hug:

si... es una serie de anime, jajaja... sino k la historia del barro me dejo la intriga, en fin solo conocia tu ciudad por las famosas momias de Guanajuato, pero la googlee y me parecio muy bonita. Algun dia espero poder irme de viaje por esos lares.

Si recuerdo que la había leído o escuchado en alguna parte ^_^
Las famosísimas momias :D uno de los mayores atractivos turísticos de por acá ;) Toda la ciudad es muy bella (por lo menos a mi me parece); con sus callejones, casas antiquísimas, caminos de piedra, ambiente cosmopolíta y bohemio. En fin, todo un caso :)
Si vienes para acá, notifícame y te doy un tour :dance: me gusta mucho publicitar mí estado y mostrarselo a los extranjeros ^-^

Lo que le dió el acabado es el barro de Guanajuato. Ja más se hubiera visto igual si fuera, digamos, de Toluca. :D

:XD: Es que, (narrado con la voz de los guías de Gto) cuenta la leyenda que el barro de Guanajuato poseé propiedades místicas :o pues se ha alimentado de los huesos de los difuntos de varios siglos, dandole casi vida a lo que se haga con él. Por ello los escultores lo buscan más que a ningún otro... ¡ pero cuidado! pues a veces, las piezas se levantaran y asesinan a sus dueños...

Sería una historia interesante :) Si muero con un cuervo en la yugular, ya sabes por que fue ;P
