I was inspired by that absolutely stunning japanese NiGHTS model on the craft page and decided I needed to have one of Reala. He took absolutely ages to make! I spent about three weeks just sculpting and then some time for cleaning up and painting. Took about 2 months all in all but spaced out over about half a year. He's got a wire and tin foil frame inside and is made from Paperclay. I used gesso and acrylics to paint him. Including the base he's about 13 inches (33cm) tall.
I have never fully painted my Sculpey models before, but i have painted metal & plastic game models. I was told citadel was good for models so i used them. This was kind of a test for the sculpture after being primed. I wanted to see how small i could make him with a decent amount of detail. I may go smaller one day. Plus i wanted to make a 'cute' nights again. Took one sleepless night. He's slightly less than 2 inches tall...

Whew! Took me almost a year to make this. NiGHTS pony! Made from Autumn Crisp. I used sculpey for the collar and cuffs. The symbol represents the five Ideya, and I used gems for those. The body has only been painted as far as the outfit goes; the rest of the body and hair are original pony color. Tsuki-Tsubasa helped me immensely by making the hat for me!
It took about a week and a half to finish, spread over the course of six or so months. The paint is simple craft paint (paint that takes forever to dry). Sorry if the pictures are kinda blurry, the camera was running out of batteries. This is also the first craft I've ever sent in.
A little paperweight... chibi thingy i made Purgatory of his maren. It originaly was supposed to be just a head but he kinda grew D: I had a lot of fun painting this. Dazclay, spraypainted fabric, gemstones, metalic pen and acrillics. I've not done craft stuff for ages so this was a nice break.
I used Sculpey extra firm clay and started with simple shapes (ball for the head, cones for the jester hat thing) and used a little wire to get them to stay together at some of the joints and smoothed it out as best I could. After that, I just baked it according to the directions in my home oven and then painted it and added a gloss coat.

I'm still not 100% sure why I made these! Ah ha ha... The 'Pian probably took an hour (Had to mix colours, Crayola modelling clay isn't very forgiving either, he kept breaking when I tried to make him/take photos), and the NiGHTS in box (supposed to represent his confinement, and I had no yellow or white so it looks a bit weird) probably took about 45 minutes.
I would like to submit this Play-Doh sculpture of NiGHTS to your craft section. It's about the size of a deflated football (XD) and it's a bit messy but my hands tend to shake when I try to make things out of Play-Doh so this was the best I could muster without the Play-Doh drying out and getting all hard and crunchy. Thanks for looking at my sculpture!
The persona is my way to hide my glasses for an upcoming NiGHTS cosplay (because NiGHTS does not wear glasses. and I like staying with the theme), based on the one NiGHTS wears during the first Crystal Castle cutscene. I made it out of a inexpensive mask, some black craft feathers, polished clay for the gem, and it is on a base of gold fabric and cardstock.
