Oh God. OH MY GOD ASDJASDKHDS WOW this is fantastic! I'm just really overwhelmed by the cuteness that is this sculpt. I will never understand how you do it. (;*Д`)ノ The production of something so perfect doesn't seem humanly possible. I can't wait to see it painted!

Poor mama Shark was just trying to have some fun~

heh it's all fun and games until you give birth to an abomination two years later... XD

it always takes me a week or two before i forget where all the bad mistakes are and i can really enjoy it. but he is darling, warts and all ^^ i am putting the final layers of polyurethane on the base, so pictures in a day or two.

Haha, yeah- but on the bright side it's an extremely adorable abomination? I mean sure it may not quite fit in, making it easy prey for other shark's but...uhh, he's cute? So mamma should be proud >3>

It looks pretty flawless from here, but hey- better to enjoy it later than never! He really is a darling, I actually saw the painted up version on pixiv and I have to say, your one poll about sucking at acrylic painting is a lie (assuming of course you used acrylics to paint the lad?) It's a really clean job- especially love the eyes! By the by, how big is it? o3o

She's a good shark mama - he can cling onto her dorsal fin and swim with her for protection until he can fend for himself and catch his own fishies ^^

yeah - i made the poll after i painted his hair. the lines are pretty sloppy and there's a little too much texture from over working the paint - i need to learn to use extender and handle the brushes right ^n^ i just got some new short handled detail ones that should work well for the next try.

the eyes are carved in so they were kind of hard to get right. they were a bit chunky, but the interference blue (shiny paint on eyes/tail) hid most of the mess ^^;

he's a little fry - about 4X4 - his head is a little larger than a quarter and you can easily cup him in your hand.

Heh, I didn't know Zexals hung out on the beach and fooled around, but then again I seem to remember that their "conception" is more spiritual. Too bad mommy doesn't see it that way right now, but I'm sure she'll learn to love her little baby in no time. Especially if she has a taste for humans who can easily be lured to her baby. :)

(I know I haven't commented on the project: For some reason my mind just blanks out to the ideas of mermaids. Also centaurs. And especially mertaurs [not to be confused with the Merataur].)

well, only little pink and mini mist are made form the zexal overlay, we have yet to figure out how ryoga got his tail XD whether his papa god drunk and banged a shark, or his mum was enticed by the dual claspered man shark, we don't know XD;;;

I think she'll get used to him, weird arms and hair and all that! ^u^ i see him holding onto her dorsal fin to keep up while he's so young! :happycry: she catches fish and bites the heads off so he can learn to eat fish!
