This is my 2nd clay sculpture after my 1st "Brom Dog" which was done many years back. Have to thank my friend and the great sculptor/designer Simon Lee (SpiderZero) and his workshop. It showed me so much of the design potential by traditional sculpting... it opened a door for me and inspired me to make and design more characters whether in clay or in digital. To me, it was an new start!
For the character, she was inspired by one of many characters in the well-known Chinese novel "Strange Tales from a Chinese Studio". I was trying to mix the fox with the iconic skinless immortal who had great impact on me when I was little. Overall, it was great experience to me, both in clay sculpting and character designing.
