This is my Fat animal Clay Project!!! We were told to draw and create and real animal into a fat clay sculpture. After searching for many animals that would fit the best look of being funny, i chose a meerakat. I chose the meerakat because it is a thin iconic animal. In this project i faced many problems such as shaping the animal in the first place, then making sure it could support its limbs so i designed so it would be as strong as possible and i also put a support in the neck of the meerakat because he was so fat in the head. After Lots of time put into the sculpture i finally finished the body. When i Finished the body i had to add fur by carving out lines all around the body. I also had put fat rolls at the bottom of the belly, which add some great texture. Finally when the clay was finished with the kiln, i had to paint and this took many days of work but finally i finished and since he looked better than most of my other projects i decided to take a cool picture of him in his natural habitat. Overall i think he came out very good and i would do this project again just because i had so much fun. I think the clay sculpture was one of my stronger project, one because it came out very nice, and two because i enjoyed using my hands and getting into compared to using a pencil to draw or paint.
