Red Lion Room Guardian by AnyaBoz Red Lion Room Guardian by AnyaBoz
Oh my goodness, I'm so happy with how this lion came out. I used a very short faux fur for the first time, and it worked out splendidly! I love how the dyed colors look on it and it hid seams a lot better than I thought it would. You will be seeing more with short fur like this for sure!

This lion has a citrine crystal heart and has a hand dyed faux fur coat. Its back stands about 5 inches tall. The frame is mildly posable; its forelegs, tail, and neck 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 soft faux 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.

 1. How did you come up with the room guardian concept?
 The idea caught fire when a friend and I were walking through an antique store. On one of the bookshelves sat two stuffed foxes wearing riding clothes. I contemplated buying them because one could convince themselves that their expressionless stares were actually seeing and watching over the room. It was as if they were alive though they were a long way from being realistic. My contemplation came to an end when I realized I could spend less money and have a better one if I just made it myself. That is where

Haha well, I don't have a specific place that I get fur from. 
Did you have a specific type you wanted to know about?

Well, I'm basically just looking for any longer fur XD

That's still very general haha, but the best way to find fur that you like
is to type it in on amazon search and find some you like. Once you see 
some you like, you can also go to their original website to see if they have
more options than what's listed on amazon. 

Etsy is also a great place because most places only sell by the yard but etsy
has many smaller pieces to purchase. 
This is a good shop for smaller pieces. www.etsy.com/shop/everafterfab…

The longer looking furs are going to be around a 2 inch pile or more. Hope this helps!

until now, but I'm super happy with how he came out.

Oh my god, this is so beautiful. I've always had a deep love for lions, so this is just amazing to me. I love the mane and how it almost looks like it's blowing. It's in such a confident pose too. Lovely work. Is this the first time you ever made a lion? I don't remember seeing any in your gallery~

Thank you so much! I love lions too, but yeah I haven't made one before now.
The wind was actually blowing in that picture and I thought the effect looked
great! I really don't know how I've gone so long without making a lion, but
this one was certainly a triumph for me:D
