This is the prototype of the Paint-your -own -Kirin. This version has a forked horn and raised edges on the scales .

I love the colors! - 'n if I saw him come up in the store I think I might try my hand at him! I think the current one is cute, but there is a lil something more to this that I like :) (Well, something more, beyond color ;p haha)

I'll see if we can locate the "master" sculpture, or mold. We need the master to make more molds from. Then we will need to come up With horns! I am working on it.

I heard about the horn issue (or at least that gettin them made is being difficult, I'm not sure what happened that caused them to be difficult) -- I was just puttin in my vote for 'em :) Not tryin to rush anything, you get 'em when you get em! I know you're a very busy woman right now! :hug:

I'm sorry! I wish I knew of a way to help out with it! Hopefully whatever it is there is some way to remedy the issue at some point (and save your hair ;) heh).. It's hard to miss that whatever it is has been a rough situation without an easy fix

Can you do a limited release of the prototype sculpt for PYO artists in the store? I would love to give those ridged scales a shot.

This prototype pyo kirin isn't available right now, but maybe if folks want them, I'll see if I can find the "master" with raised scale edges.. if I can locate it, I will see if we can make some. This may take awhile!

I'm sure if you had a handful cast and put in the store they would sell out. Even if they cost a little more than the current pyo ki-rin.

I wholeheartedly agree!! Melody, I LOVE this prototype with the raised scales. I even love the forked horn - it gives the kirin a more wild look that I really love. *begs for some to be cast*

I really like both versions...they both have their own unique appeal. I'm a definate fan of the forked horn. It's a shame both couldnt be available as pyos.

Wow, even if the production kirin is accurate to the original family, I love this design. Maybe an 'ancient kirin' like the grands in the other equine families with this design would do quite nicely =)

Also how you antiqued those dark browns in the fur to show so easily is a feat I wish I knew!
Reply
:iconreptangle:
Reptangle Featured By Owner Nov 8, 2011  Professional Traditional Artist
I antiqued the fur by giving the whole thing a good coating of clear finish, then the next day, I airbrushed dark brown acrylic paint onto it, by spraying tiny sections at a time so I could wipe it off cleanly before it stuck.
Using actual acrylic paint to "antique" is a scary way to antique pieces though, because the acrylic paint will permanently stick in the wrong places if you don't move quick enough!

Force-Flux Featured By Owner Nov 8, 2011  Professional General Artist
Ohhh clear coating makes sense! I antique with acrylic all the time, and always have a problem of it 'staining' the original color regardless how quickly I wipe it off. Thank you so much Melody! ^__^

Love the kirin! I prefer the original colours however (golden browns and white shimmer) Still it does make it look like its supposed to look like a statue! (if that makes sence). Paint your own is a great idea seems like fun. I really wish I had money.

I don't remember seeing this. What was the deciding factor in making the scales smooth?
The smooth scales are nice and allow for a lot of different experimentation since the paint works and settles differently, so I'm not dissing them. This is a really appealing look though, the raised edges give it a more traditional orient look.

:iconreptangle:
Reptangle Featured By Owner Nov 8, 2011  Professional Traditional Artist
I felt that the edges on the scales were too limiting for other artists. I intended these pyos to be more like a "blank canvas" for other people's creative content.

Biorave Featured By Owner Nov 8, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
That makes a lot of sense, it would definitively have limited a lot of different things to do with them for sure.
