It's been ages since I posted any new work here on CA so I am starting a new thread. If anyone is curious, my old thread can be found here.
Anyway, I recently finished my hellboar sculpture. I started it last fall and used a ceramic pig as a base for it. I had many interruptions and other things that distracted me from finishing it, so it sat on the shelf for a while. Now I was able to finish it. It wasn't easy because the clay had hardened from sitting on shelf, and I had to scrape parts off it and put new clay over it. And then after baking, it developed scores of hairline cracks everywhere. I had to repair the cracks, and then paint it over with one coat of acrylic paint.
MOVED PHOTOS TO POST BELOW

Awesome piggy!!! - I love all the thorny horns all over him!
Woulda been cool if you could make his tail stand up, but that's actually quite a neat solution you have there for the tail.
nice!...an welcome back
Theo: He is pretty good sized-- a foot long and 9 inches tall.
Deon: Thanks for the welcome back I made the tail like this because I'm planning to make a mold and get some few casts out of it (which we will see how it goes). The tusks and the ears are also removable.

Reason: Moved pictures from first post to here.
