Announcement    Custom Sculpture and personalized orders

I take commissions of any kind if you like my work enough to spend some your hard earned money.
Let me sculpt your beloved kitties. One 2/3 scale, one of a kind kitty statue that carries likeness of your kitty will be hand made in ceramics for 250 bucks.

For a custom sculpture of representational figure, ballpark price is 49 USD per a centimeter but it depends on amount of the details required. For example, a 1/6 scale full figure that stands 13inches (33cm) high will cost about 1620 USD and up. For 1/6 portrait, it starts at 320 USD. Those are just for sculpt, so you will need to find molder/caster if you need copies. You will receive many in-progress pictures during the process and you get to direct me by providing drawings or pictures.

Please note that I am a traditional sculptor; they are hand made, not computer generated.
If you need likeness done, I would like 20-30 moderately in high resolution reference pictures of the face from various angles ( front, both sides of 3/4 views, and profiles.) I often take many screen cap from movies to collect reference, which is time consuming. So I prefer my client do that part.

I do paint some of my cat sculptures for you. I will need reference pictures and straight forward direction. Painting fee is $86 for typical cat figures I sell here. I can paint the cat with the pattern you want. Tabby, Tuxedo, Calico, and so on . Will be signed and numbered. Sorry I do not paint my other sculptures, like human. I do not enjoy it. Sorry.

Trying to make a buck

I have been unemployed for a while then got a security guard job to tide me over. It is killing me inside. I think about my cats a lot while I am on the job.

I take commissions of any kind if you like my work enough to spend some your hard earned money. For custom sculpture, ballpark figure is 49 USD per a centimeter but it depends on amount of the details required. If you need likeness done, I would like over 20 pictures of the face from various angles. 1/6 scale head portrait sculpt is $320 for wax sculpt alone. I do paint some of my sculptures for you. I will need reference pictures and straight forward direction. And it costs around 85- 100 bucks. I might paint full 1/6 statue if you are willing to spend 250 bucks on top of the price of the kit. I do not paint kits that were produced by others.
