Ceramic Headcrab by kila-ibyao Ceramic Headcrab by kila-ibyao
Well since I haven't completed art in a while, I thought I might as well post this Ceramic Headcrab I did a while ago. He's about 12x6in. I would say he is close to the size of a real Headcrab. I'm very happy the way he came out. My teacher was a bit displeased in my choice of acrylic to paint him with, but I'm terrible at guessing what colors the glazes will look when fired. :C

This is absolutely amazing. Having worked with ceramics before, I'm sure a lot of work went into this. Your paint job is very impressive, too...it looks just like it does in the game. Amazing job!

I've sat here for the last five or so minutes trying to come up with a way to describe how great this is while still making sense. I guess this'll have to do.

Honestly the matte skin-y look of the acrylic paint only serves it better. Very nice work! Did you use anything to support the legs inside or did you just prop it up as you made it?

Thank you! While there is no support on the inside, the way I was able to get it to stand up was by making the body of the Headcrab as hollow and light weight as possible. I then made a sort of makeshift cradle for it to rest on to keep the whole figure from sagging. (And by cradle I mean hollowed out ball of clay.) I then made the legs and let them dry hard so that they wouldn't sag under the weight. Once dried, I attached them to the still semi wet body. For extra insurance I fired the cradle with the Headcrab.

Not a very smart way of going about making it, but it worked. I'm not very familiar with the medium you see.
