Raccoon "Jen-i-mal" Style

So I just finished her up today, I plan on painting her in watercolors as well. I will probably whip up some cards for her. I have been thinking of adding backgrounds to my creations, but the plan was to get all my characters lined up and then start showing them in different settings. I have begun to kind of do this with my cows.

p.s. If anyone has any ideas for a name for this lil sweetheart feel free to shoot em my way.... I just thought of one "Mapache Linda"

This is part of a series of ceramic boxes I am creating. The bases on these four were created with extruded low temperature clay. I hand sculpted the figures and then attached them to the lids via score and slip method. I hand painted the figures with underglazes and then finished them off with an application of a clear glaze. The remaining other pieces I am working on are larger in scale and I will post them as soon as they are done. These range in size from 5" to 7" inches.
Just wanted to share a bit of the technical process.
