Impressive is a ooak (one of a kind) kirin sculpture. He was made from polymer clay over a wire and foil armature, and painted in acrylics. He has brown resin eyes, and his hair is tibetan lamb fur. He stands about 8 inches tall to the top of his antlers, and 4.5 inches tall from chest to bum.
Impressive was a commission, and a fun one too; I haven't done many dark kirins and I had been wanting to do a coppery coloured one for a while. He has more deer-like anatomy, and the taller, slimmer look was a big of a change from the last few goat-shaped ones I've done. The commissioner lives close enough to me that I could deliver him in person, which was also a neat experience. I was quite sad to see him go!
