I call these my little creatures. And they're like a mixture between the things I draw and like the things I want in real life. And since I can't really make animation, I like how these are alive enough to really feel like a real being and I like things that have details that are small.

Here, we have a shark holding a Coca-Cola bottle because my friends call me Shark and I love to drink Coca-Cola.

I feel like clay makes an image feel more alive than a drawing. Because like a drawing is just drawing. But like I feel like clay figurines are kind of like toys and people use toys as sentimental things. So it has more feeling.
