Rare bloodtalon raptor sighted in neighborhood: photos

Unread post by Noba » Thu Apr 22, 2010 1:25 pm

I was able to use my stealth skills to capture some pictures of this beasty who was lurking about in my yard. I wanted to share with you guys. I will only put a few directly in this post, as I dont want to hog mania's webspace too much. So if youre interested, view more pics in the attachments.

:D This little raptor is based on the red raptor pet of wow, with some changes. I'm aware that he's not a direct clone of the wow model. He's nearly complete and just needs a feather (i'm waiting for my parrot to drop one rather than pluck it out). This little guy is a clay figurine. I used a couple pieces of bendy wire to make a basic shape, then filled it out with aluminum foil. Then the foil gets sculpey ovenbake clay molded over it and shaped. Baked, then painted it with some acrylic paints! It took a few weeks of working and much frustration. There are many aspects I am not satisfied with, but overall I think its not bad for a first attempt.
The red raptor was chosen because it was a gift for my mother who also plays wow, and has this hunter pet.

Thanks for looking! <3

Ooooh too cool! My first pet was a red raptor just like that one, and I still keep him around.

I love your rendition :D I'm a big dino nerd outside of wow, too, so this little guy is just <33 Great job

Great job! It makes me want to make one... but I already tried that, I'm not much of a hands on shaper. I'm a sketcher :lol:

Lovely! I can't imagine how much practice you've put into sculpting... I tried sculpting in art class last year and the wolf I was attempting to create looked horribly disfigured. :lol:
