Fox Squirrel Room Guardian by AnyaBoz Fox Squirrel Room Guardian by AnyaBoz
If you recall the movie Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind, you should recall her little side kick fox squirrel Teto. I decided to make my own version of a realistic fox squirrel. This is my very first fan art room guardian. Hope you like it!

This room guardian has a rose quartz heart and an extremely soft rabbit fur coat. Its back stands about 6 inches off the ground. The frame is mildly posable; its forelegs, neck, and tail bend freely all over and it's back legs bend slightly below the thigh. 

Room Guardians are small creatures that protect one's home from negative spirits and energies. These friends can be easily placed on window sills, kitchen shelves, dressers, or wherever to keep watch over the room. Each guardian has a genuine rabbit fur coat and each is individually sculpted from the wire frame to the clay face and hands, so no two are alike. The room guardians' arms, tails, and necks are bendable and Inside each of their chests is a unique crystal heart to give each one a different energy. These little guys have a lot of character and they love having a home to watch over.

As a huge fan of Nausicaa this brought tears to my eyes. All of your work is absolutely amazing but I have a big emotional tie to this one. I look forward to seeing more from you in the future and when my finances I allow it I hope I can commission or grab a pre made one from you. These are extremely special creations and I would love one in my home some day.

i never heard of "room guardian" so I thought that just meant these figures where meant to be placed somwhere in the room where they can "watch over" I requested this to a squirrel group I own cause it's very cool

The Room Guardian is my own term. I didn't get it from something
else, and you are exactly right on your assumption. The description
of a room guardian is under each deviation.

Another amazingly stellar artwork! These just look so natural, it's hard to believe it's made. The expression and fur are so well done (and I bet the rabbit fur is super soft XD). Seriously, awesome work. :happybounce:

This is gorgeous! All the little details are just stunning. Not to mention that in your FAQ, you prices are ridiculously low. I'd be willing to spend up to 300$ on something like this, and if you did end up opening commissions in September, I can only hope I can nab a spot!

Thank you so much! Well a lot of my guardians go above the listed price
range, but I just gave a general price range for the average commission. 
I hope to do some auctions in the future though:D And I'll be sure to notify
all with the details as September nears:D

I think my first one was made 2011ish when I was a junior in high school.
But I started selling them at the beginning of 2013 when I had developed a 
better armature method. Now I've made almost 200 of them though!:faint:

Wow it's been a while : o Had you had skills in crafting before or did you just naturally know what to do? (sorry for so many questions orz as someone who has failed miserably in making 3D things [be it with clay, sewing, etc.] these things [and the process behind them] really fascinate me :D

Haha it's not a bother:) I've always had a knack for it I guess. I always loved
making little animals out of sculpey clay or making masks and puppets, but I have
learned WHOLE lot from just doing it over and over again. Experience and practice
can teach anyone how to do something well.
