Standing Baby Kirin fantasy Grab Bag editiion
 Anything goes for a fantasy grab bag edition.These are just a few of the kirins from the Grab bag batch that sold out on April 22 2015. This  was a batch of about 90.
 Pics of the whole "class" are here, if you would like to see what I been doing all last week.…

Eh, I don't like the layout of this page. Maybe I'll change it. The bottom is kinda weird. The middle needs to be lined up with the rest of the rectangles, or the people in the bottom right corner need to be in a rectangle to match the left hand bottom one, or maybe I'll leave it as it is. Its been a long day.

 Art tip for those of you drawing graphic novels: Don't do a background made of rocks. Takes forever to draw.
 So, out of desperation I ended up clone stamping it -and it looks awful.

Standing Baby Kirin Grab Bag
A few of the standing baby kirins , painted like various kois. I painted 120 of these. They were sold as a "grab bag " edition(you don't know which one you got until you open the box).  These Koi-rins are sold out, but I am working on a grab bag fantasy batch now.
 Here's a link to our store page, (sorry the "slide show" is wonky)

Thank you for the llama, master!
I can't look at your gallery and not became inspired. 
Looks like I need to pick up some clay and start sculpting!
But then I remember I work with cold porcelain, and it is not at all the best material to sculpt! >< But I am struggling to find something I like more than it. Not so many options on Brazil.
Rhank you so much for sharing your art and make the world a happiest place!

I should probably admit that I borrowed one of your characters in a meme that I had been tagged to complete…. I had posted it at the last minute before I had to leave for the Reservation for the Spring Ceremonies and never had a chance to send this message until I got back.
