Matilde the Mermaid
The sculpt was inspired by a sea horse and corals, while the colouration is based on a lionfish. Sculpted in chavant, applications in gelatine. The paint is mostly skin illustrator and a tiny bit of grease paint. A bit hurried as I had to print my portfolio today before leaving tomorrow for UMAe in London this weekend. But even so, I really like the overall feel of the piece. I’ve wanted to make a mermaid for a while and finally found the time.
Today I re-made The Doll Man from our Halloween-dungeon.
This is The Tea Dragon. Inspired by Lipton Forest Fruit Tea, one of my favourite things in life here drawn inside my favourite cup.
Sketched with pencils, Coloured in Corel Photopaint X3.

The Monkey I previously posted as a monkey-scientist fav.me/d75m64p was made a part of a project called “Beauty and the Beast” at NISS, in which we at sfx collaborated with make-up and the students from stage and lights. The design is based on a mix of a Gelada baboon and a Golden-Headed Lion Tamarin.
The model is once more Annette, and I finally got to lay down the hair properly which was the last touch that was really missing from the previous appliance. The sculpting, hair, pre-painting and make-up on the appliances is all my work, while I had help from some lovely assistants with the rest. Hildegunn and Annette helped make the foam appliances and bake them, Hildegunn helped me glue down the mask, and Lina and Aladdin helped me applying the rest of the hair on the final piece.
Self-Portrait in Wet Clay: One of our first assignments at NISS was to sculpt our own faces in full-size in wet clay, using plaster copies of ourselves as reference. I recently pained it in polish and acrylics.
My Green Dress. The green dress itself was ordered from JJsHouse, but looked terrible when it arrived. So I took it in about 15 cm around the top, cut off two folds of fabric (about 30 cm) of the length, and customized it with some decorative ribbons around the edges. Also this necklace and ear-bling is supposedly a one of a kind design set in sterling silver.
Some of my favourite bumblebee-photos.
Top: bombus jonellus, my favourite. 2 & 3: Bombus hypnorum. 4: Bombus lucoru„ and not quite sure about the rest. The male of the mating couple looks like a lucorum, but the female doesn’t so they may have a tiny problem there. All photos taken during field work in 2010.
