Aphelion by scenceable Aphelion by scenceable
This is a bit early since I haven't done studio photos of him yet, but I couldn't resist. This is "Aphelion" (named after the Tristania song), a white and silver male kirin.

Aphelion is a ooak (one of a kind) hand made unicorn or kirin sculpture. He was made entirely from scratch from polymer clay over a wire and tin foil armature. He is about 11 inches long fron front hoof to the tip of the tail, and about 8 inches from the ground to the tip of his antler.

I haven't made a lying down horse or anything in ages. It was difficult but I love sculptures in lying down poses, I would make tons if it wasn't so hard. Ah well, practise practise. I had intended to make a white furry kirin for a few months now, so it's nice to have him done.

His eyes are "rain" coloured 5mm equine pupil eyes from Dreaming Tree Studio (they are inset and made of resin). The hair is cashmere goat fur, which I had never used before. I enjoyed making the antlers especially, you will see more of them in the future!

I took this photo at my grandmother's cottage. It was cold, raining, and there were snakes everywhere. Neither me or Aphelion fell into the lake or got bitten by any snakes so I'm happy, and the photos turned out decently too.

Aphelion was created to auction on ebay. I plan on putting up the auction within the next week or so. I will update my journal with the link when it goes live. Otherwise, you can watch my facebook page, I will post the link there too! [link] The auction will start at 99 cents, so everyone can have a chance to bid. If he sells well I will try and make more for ebay in the next while. :)

I hope you like him! :dance:

Edit: The auction is over and he is now sold! Thanks everyone. He is now owned by ~3kidsandahorse.

Holy...I found this while browsing traditional art and was about to post, "shouldn't this be under photomanips?" until I looked closer. You're extremely skilled. How much did it sell for, by the way?
