George & Mac – the handsome backbone of Faunia

Yay! Here they are: George and Mac, Faunia´s founders.

It took me quite some time to finish them and get the details right. Now I am especially content with how their skin texture turned out, all healthy & sunkissed, and with a nice “hands-on” air about them ready to roll up their (not yet added) sleeves to do all they can for Faunia´s prospering community. They also look as they are quite able to tackle the demanding task of looking after the two teenagers Elka and Francis , eh? 😉

Concerning the story of Faunia, I am happy to tell you that it evolves more and more. Recently I attended a fantasy-writer´s work-shop and will keep on working on the story, sculpting more of it´s characters in clay / SuperSculpey along the way.

Work-in-progress: an early sneak-preview of a new Faunia character

So this is an exclusive sneak-preview of a new creature of Faunia – Louis, the intellectual assistant of Mayor Miles Mulligan. Louis loves discussions with his boss. Even though these two guys have quite different personalities – Louis a serious thinker and a bit nerdy, Miles with an attitude “live-and-love-the-moment-and-talk-about-it” – they get along perfectly.

As I keep working on him, he will get furrier and of course more details will be added…and I already look forward to the paint-job on his looooooong black-and-white tail. His wife Stella, by the way, is a dancer (her specialty: Tango Argentino) and gives dance workshops in the forest, accompanied by Faunia´s talented musician Jamie Finn playing joyful tunes. Louis and Stella have many many cute children that run around everywhere in Faunia…wait and see some of them in one of the upcoming posts 😉

YAY! Finished! Finally! See dragon Tripodd in all his clumsy glory!

Here he comes, Faunia´s eager school-dragon, ready for a new day.

Wouldn´t you like your children to have such a friendly and enthusiastic “teacher´s pet” in the classroom? 😉
