First miniatures

I thought i would post these as i dont think ive ever shown them here. My first mini's i ever when after i quit drawing and picked up polymer clay.
I name each of my mini's, such a hatter thing to do. I feel like when i make them a little bit of me goes into each one so there is life there even though they are frozen like a person caught in the frame of a picture.
This is Fin, mouse adventurer and warrior.

this next one is Tim and Flit, tim is the teeny tiny little mousey you see atop the long tailed tit-bird Flit.

Flit i had to do alittle research on as i had never made a bird before, i found the smallest cutest photo of a bird and went from there.

This next one is the third mouse adventurer i made, although he's a rat. Thomas the Rat archer, every good protagonist needs a good antagonist.
Fin vs. Rat Archer.

the rat paw holding an arrow on his quiver pack is Thomas's clan insignia. I painted it on with acrylic.
this next piece is called Skift, it means a light fall of snow.
I havent quite finished this piece, i meant to but other ideas kept cropping up. I wanted to add some more snowfall around is paws, and put 3 or 4 tiny mice knights riding upon his back holding a very long lance... charging an unseen foe.

this next piece is my 3rd diroama, the 1st and 2nd i made bunnies having a picnic tea party with cake.
This piece the birds name is Berdinand. The fairy planting fairy seeds is called tulip. I wanted this to be like the story of hansel and gretel with breadcrumbs, and a fairy circle with mushrooms. She's luring Berdinad to the center of her spiral, soon she'll close the circle.

Ohhhh Tulip and her fairy circle do glow in the dark

Re: First miniatures

I love these! They are so creative and charming to boot.

The charging rabbit is so dramatic too, what a great sense of movement you've captured.

Bravo!

Re: First miniatures

HH - It's been awhile since I surfed this forum - I had no idea these were here!

What an INCREDIBLE collection!!! 😂

I'm a huge fan of mice and birds in real life, but the amazement I feel looking at these goes beyond that. You've got such an imagination!!!

Thank you for sharing these awesome treasures 🎼

Re: First miniatures

HH - I have to add - what a great sense of individual personality all your pieces have. I don't know if it's because of your attention to detail, or simply your love of what you are doing, but they seem real, and I think they are!!! It seems immediately apparent that you've put yourself into them, and given them souls

Re: First miniatures

Wow. These are incredible.
I'm going home today and throw my clay away.
My stuff looks like untalented three year old's stuff next to these.
