Indigo, you've been doing such a wonderful thing making drawings of everyone's bettas for free :D

I'd like to do something for you in turn. I make polymer clay figures and have been toying with the idea of doing something betta for a while. (I'm kinda lazy... I'll toy with an idea for many months before lifting a finger, lol)

So I'd like to make you a figure of some kind. You can tell me what you want.

You can choose from...
--3d figure of one of your bettas (it will be about 2-4", haven't made a betta before so it's a guestimate)
--Betta name plaque (will have the name and betta somehow) either to hang or lean on a table (let me know which)
--pendant or magnet
--keychain (but to be honest, most homemade keychains don't last longer, and it would probably have thinner parts so break easily due to normal keychain wear)

hmmm... or any other idea you might have that can be done with clay and isn't too complicated. You could even do a quick sketch of something you want and I can see if it's doable.

I need a practice subject, so why not one of your bettas and get you something nice in return for all of your kindness? n.n If it turns out nicely I might do commissions in the future here.

I'll just need your physical address to send it to after I'm done if you want it (just pm it if you do)

So what do you think?

Wow, thanks JadeAngel, that's really kind of you!

Do you think you could make a pendant of my Betta Indigo? There's photos of him in my album.

I've got a really nice silver chain that I could put the pendant on.

I'll send you pictures of it on the chain.


If I have drawn a picture for you, full size versions are available on my DA page

Sure I'll try to get it started tonight, and I'll let you know when it's done

Half way done. I normally try to paint as little as possible and use colored clay mostly, but the had didn't want to cooperate, lol

So I'm heating up the oven now, and I'll paint the head and red wash in the fins when it's out and cool <3

I tried to make it as small as possible but it's difficult to make it small and detailed, so it's about 2"

Just going to shorten his ventrals a little bit before I pop him in n.n

Finished it yesterday, and it's dry today. It's just one sided as a pendant, I will send it out later today as I have to go to the post office anyway

I hope you don't mind that it's shiny.

Thank you, its really beautiful and it looks just like Indigo.

You've got some real talent.

I can't wait to wear it and show it off to people!



ps I haven't forgotten your Guppy Crowntaillove, I'm still working on her, it takes a bit longer for me to draw Guppies.
