Figurines

Today I decided to play with some clay. I haven't sculpted in a while, but I ended up having a blast sculpting a panda Cory and a land hermit crab. Thought I'd share them.

Thanks guys! I had lots of fun making them. I haven't had time to sculpt in years but it was nice to be able to.
I'm considering practicing some more and doing some other designs too. Then, I'm thinking I could open an Etsy shop and make them when I have free time. That way I get to do something I love and maybe save up for college in the meantime. Any suggestions on what I should protype next?

These are two of my most colorful fish. Might make good models.

They're gorgeous! As soon as I have some more free time I think they'd be fantastic to work on, and the patterns will be a welcome challenge as well as good practice.
I'll probably try the gold nugget pleco first, since it's shape is close to that or a Cory and I'm familiar with that.

I had someone on another forum place the first order. The Etsy shop isn't set up yet, but I'm going to work on getting it going in the next few months.
I made them a sheep figurine. I'm enjoying doing requests and trying different styles.
I also made some little charms of a crab and starfish to sell on the Etsy shop. I'll do some other sea critters and sell them all together as a little collection.
