Baby Groot Shoot

2014 

Liz Gridley

Oil Painted - Resin Cast Figure in ceramic pot with artificial ‘dirt and stones’ (he smells good because the dirt is ground coffee!) I tried to make this model more movie accurate and hes cast from my original sculpty version so I can recast him, making him much cheaper than buying an original!!

Buy Me on Etsy: Or not. I recieved a copyright infringement notice and Groot has been delisted. I’m investigating now - Sorry everyone!

Groot Shoot

2014

Liz Gridley

Super Sculpey, Wire, Marbles, Oil Paints, Stones, Ceramic Cup, Coffee

I know this has been done by other artists but I was waaay too entertained by the idea after watching Guardians of the Galaxy last night! I’ve left the base loose as I’m still tossing up varnishing techniques and whether I want to try and cast this guy or make a second to try and cast.

8 hours total from go to yay its 3am and I’m done!

*Update* I took some better photos in daylight

Baby Groot! I saw guardians of the galaxy 2 and this little guy was very inspiring for me to get back into sculpting on my afternoon off!
