No, not poseable. Too hard with all the scales

Oh k neat. I like your feather raptors. I may buy one from u in the future, but if you don't mind me asking, I see that you use clay and wires for the sculpture, but do you use clay over the wire frame and then add fur?

Stuffing goes onto the frame and then the fur, just use the clay to make the head and feet.

Can you tell me a bit about your painting process for your sculptures?

kimrhodes Featured By Owner Jan 3, 2014  Professional General Artist
On morpheous I painted the sculpted parts with acrylics(face and feet) the rest is all fabrics that i added a little highlight and shadow color to with both paintbrush and airbrush.

Hi :)
Do you have any work in progress shots(of any of your pieces)? Or a tutorial of sorts? I'd love to see them if you do ^^
A tutorial might help since I have many questions ^^; such as how thick is your wire and how is the fur attached? I apologise but I'm new to this and you can only learn by asking :)

I haven't tried any large sculptures yet, only small things like this: starling16.deviantart.com/art/… (apologies for the watermark). I'll experiment more and do some fantasy creatures once I've bought some better clay (sculpey original currently :/ )
Thank you~

This is what I imagined some of the Incan dragons in the Temeraire books to look like. Of course you would add some rings in the wingtips, as they were very much into body jewelry in that dragon culture. 

Just stunning!
