Amaterasu Custom by NocturnalEquine Amaterasu Custom by NocturnalEquine
Ammy is finished! Well, I may still make some minor changes and add a clear coat to protect her paint job, but she is basically finished.

She started as a Breyer wolf - picture here [link] - and I customized her using epoxy putty. The paint job was done by hand in acrylic, with details done with tiny brushes and even toothpicks. o_o

Ammy is from Okami, which belongs to Capcom.

EDIT: To give credit where it is due, here are links to the two reference pictures I used on this project:

Good idea! I would definitely be willing to at least do commissions if anyone wanted a custom Ammy of their own. It would probably have to be on a different model though--I don't think Breyer makes these anymore. :(

Yeah, you can get them in other brands. They just wouldn't be this exact model.

Is Epoxy putty hard to use?

:iconnocturnalequine:
NocturnalEquine Featured By Owner Jul 2, 2010  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
It dries really, really fast. And it sticks to your fingers pretty bad... I think you're probably supposed to wear gloves using it, haha, but I didn't. The next time I do a project like this I will probably try using something called Apoxie Sculpt. I've heard it works much better.

Very nice! Thank model lends itself well to ammy’s figure and you sculpted the ‘wings’ quite well. Where did you get this figure?

Thanks very much!

It was actually "donated" to me by my sister. :D I think it originally came along with a Breyer Kiger mustang model horse.

Nothing to apologize for! :)

Thanks so much for the kind compliments. And don't say you can't make one; with a little practice I'm sure anyone could. When you're customizing a model made by someone else, the really hard work is already done for you. :D

I think you should mass-produce these.

That would be pretty awesome. But it's hard to mass-produce something that takes two whole days to make... :D
