African Grey Parrot Sculpture by IllusionTree African Grey Parrot Sculpture by IllusionTree
This sculpture is of an African grey parrot, one of my favorite birds. :heart:

This tiny sculpture is about 2 and 1/8 inches tall. It is made from original white Sculpy polymer clay over a wire armature painted with acrylics. The eyes are glass painted on the back. Download the full view for more detail.

I've loved this sculpture for a long time.  I just saw your photo of it, cropped and at poorer quality, watermark removed, edited, and posted by someone on Facebook.  www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbi… I commented with a link to your gallery here on dA.

aldhjgajdfbrga! I'm at a loss for words. Absolutely, just wonderfully, adorable. This made me squee and tell my fiance 'I want him!" haha.
We have 3 real parrots at home, and have had friends and family with African Grey's whom are always wonderful birds.
This is really cute, and so inspiring to me as a fellow clay-using artist. I thought about making a parrot sculpt before, but was worried about
the feathers. Maybe I should just go for it anyway.

This is so utterly adorable!! Like others, I'd be interested in purchasing this as well! I have an African Grey and he's a true companion! So cute and precious and I love him! This would decorate my home nicely~

It's obvious you're really talented, so you should def make and sell things like this! Keep it up!

The details on this are fantastic. I've worked with polymer a little bit, and I have no idea how in the world you got all those crazy feathers in there.

I don't know how you make simple clay and paint look this lifelike and full of character and feeling. This grey parrot is so pretty and so adorable from every angle. Your work always make me smile, every time. What a wonderful feeling to convey with your work! I love looking at it so much. 
Thank you for how wonderful and positive and beautiful these sculptures are.
Keep making these Briana.

I cannot imagine how much time and effort it must have taken to sculpt, detail, and paint all of those layered feathers. Totally worth it, though! The end result is fantastic(ly adorable). Great stylization of an African Grey.

and the mannerisms are spot on! At least when compared to my African. She's a hoot to listen to as well.  Quite the personalities that these beautiful birds have.
