Grey Asagi koi Kirin by Reptangle Grey Asagi koi Kirin by Reptangle
Here is one of the baby Kirins I have been painting like various types of koi , as special items for our online store and for ebay.
This one is loosely based on an asagi koi.
His paint job kinda drifted to more of a chipmunk look...

He is about 2 3/4 inches tall. He is cast in gypsum and painted with acrylics. He has glass eyes and a gold-plated pewter horn.
This kirin was sold in our online store: [link]

I have never heard of a kirin before! What is the story behind them?

I have one of these little guys, my mom got him years ago! Same mold and everything, I can't believe I didn't realize you were painting these little cuties sooner~

I love the colouration on this one, especially the markings on his head, awesome job :D

Honestly, I love your work. I have always loved your work. I think it would be great to go to a workshop you would do... and perhaps see the process of your carvings... or maybe watch a video of the same thing. Your work fascinates me to no end...

The way I work is not a pretty sight! I don't have an efficient, slick method like others I have seen.

XD I'm the same way. I have a horrible work method, honestly. I'm only a ceramics working right now, but I just got into plaster. I'm trying to find more artists that share their work process and information about working in different mediums, but alas... I can't find any willing to share the nitty gritty haha.
