12 Giant Flying Wolf

I wasn’t sure if I wanted to include this one. But it’s got a kind of style to it… even if it’s pretty weird. This was my first attempt at a large scale sculpture using a wire aperture (a framework of bent metal wires to apply the epoxy plastic over). I was centering my Empire army around a norse theme at the time. I already had a hippogriff rider for my Bretonnians and wanted something different for this general. So I thought up this big flying wolf thing for the main guy to ride. I liked the head and some of the hair textures. But I was never happy with the wings. I couldn’t get the epoxy plastic thin enough and it didn’t have enough strength so it came out flat instead of curved. Somebody recommended paper mache later. If I did it over, I’d try that instead.
