This mug has a lot of hand work that has to be done after he's pulled from the mold. I re-sculpt the eye, top of nose and open part of the mouth. I feel like I'm getting a little technique and he's actually getting faster to clean each time. A lot better then my first one lol

What do you think?

and the photos are right side up





This is a one off version for the Planet of the Apes exhibit at Creature Features gallery in Burbank curated by Eric October.
Im making a more traditional version to sell (only 50) which will have nose and earrings. I'll post a pic of one after it's been cleaned up tomorrow.

Love any feedback or recommendations

Pretty amazing sculpt and details! A darker thread might contrast against the skin tone a little more. Way beyond my skill level! Post the production version when you get it.

This is so crazy awesome Tonie! Been watching the progress on Instagram and it's seeing it get better and better. The glaze on this is incredible, love it! The details are great too, love the little bones.
