The Forest Spirit 4 by Lighteh The Forest Spirit 4 by Lighteh
My first art doll! The Forest Spirit from Hayao Miyazaki's film Princess Mononoke. =) This majestic figure stands just over 1.5 ft and is an entirely hand made pose-able piece. The irises are hand painted glass and the fur is a very soft synthetic. All in all this probably took me about 30-40 hours, which isn't too bad for my first try, I think.

Materials: Super sculpty, felt, synthetic fur, flocking, acrylic, wire armature.

:bulletred: This sculpture is for sale here: www.etsy.com/listing/160019852…?

THAT is nothing short of amazing.  I love the movie, maybe my favorite movie of all time, and of course that means I am attracted to the Forest God that Miyazaki created for the film.  Just a Great Job on what you have here.  A treasure!

I used some basic knowledge I already knew about sculpting and looked at a few doll tutorials here on deviantart, the rest was a learning process.

That's really cool. He looks just like the real spirit.
I just got Princess Mononoke on DVD. I waited a couple years and then couldn't wait anymore. It's one of my favorite movies. :)
I remember watching it in the language lab while I was taking Japanese in college.

Funny story, when I went out to photograph this doll a lot of people stopped to look either because they were amazed or because they thought I was photographing a very strange live animal!
